Frequently Asked Questions

HEADER

Do you sing and perform full time?

Yes I do! I am one lucky lady who gets to perform for lots of couples and at a wide range of events from Weddings to Corporate Events to Christenings. I also coach young vocalists across Northamptonshire & Leicestershire.

What will you bring?

I  have an awesome PA system (see equipment details below) and microphone and will provide that for every event. 

How far will you travel?

Almost anywhere as I love visiting new places!! There maybe additional costs to cover travel expenses & accommodation if needed.

How much space do you need?

I am very compact for solo and duo gigs, but roughly from 2m x 2m ! This can be anywhere you wish as long as there is good access and a plug socket near by. If the British weather allows I am happy to sing outside, but I would always advise to have a plan B!

For events with a band please allow approximately 5m x 2m.

Would you sing with a band or other musicians?

I work with a super duper guitarist David Williams under the Rebecca Diamond Acoustic Duo. Please check out our info page for more information. 

For evening receptions please head over to our Rebecca Diamond Band page!

Can you provide PAT & Public Liability Insurance Certificates?

Yes!! I am covered by the Musicians Union and all my equipment is PAT tested every year.

When will you arrive?

I normally arrive an hour before I am due to perform and this gives me plenty of time to set up & sound check as it normally only takes around 20 minutes.

For band events we need approximately 90 minutes to set up and soundcheck.

If you need us to set up earlier please let me know and I would be happy to discuss this further.

Can you learn a special song for us?

I love performing new songs and would be more than happy to! Up to 3 song requests not on my repertoire are included in the price. This works really well for the ceremony, where you usually need around three to four pieces.

How do we book you?

You can use the Contact Form to fill out your details and I will get back to you as soon as possible with availability, a bespoke quote and any questions I may have. When you are happy to go ahead I will send over an events contract for you to sign and return along with £100 deposit to secure the date. The remaining balance will be due three weeks before the event. I will also call you around then to finalise any last minute plans and discuss any changes. Through all this I am happy to answer any questions you may have via email or phone.

Can we come and see you perform?

I perform at around six wedding showcases a year and these are a great way to come and hear me live, as well as maybe sampling a few slices of wedding cake…or two in some beautiful venues! At certain events we showcase the full Rebecca Diamond Band.

It is worth following me on Facebook to keep up to date with future events.

We would love to have a recording of the songs you sung at our wedding?

A fab idea! I am happy to provide recordings of your first dance or songs sung during your ceremony. You can then distribute these as you wish for your wedding favours, with your thank you cards or keep them just for you! Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details.
