Glen R (Swing Singer)

Number of Reviews and Counting... 8!

Typically Glen would perform two 40 minute sets. The first one is often quite relaxed whilst guests are chatting amongst themselves. The second set usually includes more upbeat songs including Bublé, Sinatra, Rat Pack etc.

The important thing to note is that through prior discussion the sets are bespoke for your event and based on numerous customer testimonials, many couples tell Glen that is what makes him different to many other ‘wedding singers’ they looked at before booking Glen.

Using state if the art equipment Glen is able to wander the floor to achieve maximum interaction with guests.

Glen doesn’t perform a “Swing act” each event is unique. Being a fully qualified and licensed Life Coach and NLP Practitioner (Nuro Linguistic Programmer) Glen will interact with your guests, delivering the type of performance suited to the current mood. Then, seconds later and the whole place is on the floor up dancing.

Often when Glen performs acoustically earlier at events he builds up a great bond with the guests, which translates great to the Swing show in the evening. He has been invited to numerous weddings after speaking to Brides and Grooms and even been asked to sit on the top table, very flattering indeed. 

Glen has performed for the likes of - Wayne & Coleen Rooney, Olly Murs, Sarah Millican, Manchester United Team, Sir Alex Ferguson, Alan Shearer, Glenn McCrory and many more!

, Private Party, North Yorkshire

Glen was great would definitely recommend him. We had a retirement party in our home for 40 people and he made it a fabulous party. He is a talented singer and musician.

, Funeral, Leicestershire

Glen R is a great singer and set the perfect mood for our function. Would definitely book him again.

, Corporate, Northumberland

Fabulous voice, great entertainer - enjoyed by all.

, Birthday Party, Riverside Lodge Hotel, Ayrshire

Glen was fantastic and picked up on the mood of the party. He has a wonderful mellow voice and everyone in the room showered him with compliments. They just loved him. I would have no hesitation in hiring him again - a consummate professional. Thank you for the recommendation.

, Charity, Rodley Cricket Club, West Yorkshire

Glen was all-round fantastic for our Ladies Night fundraising event. He was super relaxed about organisation and logistics, having no issue being flexible to accommodate our event and venue. To boot, he seems a top bloke and is very easy to get on with. As to the performance itself, Glen was just brilliant. He's a great performer, skilful on the guitar/loop-pedal and with a cracking voice. He did 2 different but very entertaining sets; the first acoustic set really set the mood, and the second swing set was electric - by the end he had all of our guests dancing on tables & singing along to New York, New York! He seemed to charm the pants off the ladies in attendance (figuratively speaking!) and all of the guests I spoke to thought he was excellent. We would definitely book Glen R again. Thanks for everything.

, Wedding, Durham

Absolutely fantastic. Great voice and a fantastic attitude! There aren't enough that words to express the positive comments by all family and guests. Fantastic!!

, Wedding, Northumberland

I just wanted to drop you a line to say 'Thank You' for last Saturday for your gig at The Portland in Ashington! Everybody had the best time and thought you were absolutely brilliant - I just wish Wayne and I had had more time to sit back and enjoy the show too but it all sounded amazing from where we were! I know quite a few ladies in the audience were not happy to find out you were engaged/married :) Plus a big thank you as I know you did longer than 45mins in the second set, we really appreciate that, as you were obviously aware that the DJ had not arrived. So, thanks again, you were amazing, you did us proud and many, many thanks - we are going to come see your Rat Pack show, that's for sure!

, Wedding, Tyne and Wear

We would both like to thank Glen for his amazing entertainment that he provided at our wedding at the Hotel du Vin, Newcastle. Originally, we were just going to have acoustic guitar playing but I am so pleased that we decided to have the swing as well. He put a shine on an already perfect day, so much so that our guests are still talking about it now. We would both recommend Glen's acoustic guitar playing but especially his swing as he involves all guests with his crooning. A big thank you glen from Gemma and Chris Williams'. Thanks again. If you need any more testimonials just ask.
