Are you able to learn requests and at what extra charge?
We can re-work a song to incorporate slightly different words or to incorporate someones name, a company name or a product and this starts from £10 dependent on rehearsal times required. We may be able to learn a specific song if the arrangement is available. 8 weeks notice is required as we need time to purchase the song (Usually from USA) and then to learn it. Alternatively, we can get a song arranged in the barbershop style and learn it. For costs, please speak to your Warble agent.
