With literally thousands of weddings under her belt over the last 20 years, performing as lead vocalist/founder/manager of Atlantic Soul Showband, plus Duos, Trios, Quartets and Solo gigs – and now fronting The Groove Directive (www.thegroovedirective.com) from 2014 – Marj knows that the Scottish wedding industry inside out. She knows how huge a deal it is and that choosing the right entertainment is paramount. Marj’s pedigree and experience in the wedding market is second to none.
She knows all about the nerves, the worries, the niggles and the anxiousness of brides and grooms as their big day approaches. And she’s expert at quelling those nerves, having dealt with thousands of brides and grooms on a daily basis and by dealing with their wedding arrangements on a personal level with them, liaising with them face to face, by phone, email, Facebook or whatever method the couples prefer, she’s got an instinctive knack of putting couples’ minds at rest by taking an active interest in THEIR big day. No wedding is “just another wedding” to Marj. She takes great pride in the fact that she deals with every single one personally.
With over 20 years in the Wedding industry, Marj is a full time professional vocalist, so you never need to worry about her juggling other jobs as your needs are always put first. Marj has full £10M Public Liability Insurance and is fully Pat Tested so you never need to worry about the safety of your guests either. Marj has her own top-of-the-range modular PA system (can be scaled up or down to suit the venue) and the latest in lighting technology to add pizzazz and atmosphere to your wedding reception. These, coupled with the 500 plus (and counting!) backing tracks for her Solo Wedding work – hundreds more for Duo work and a vast repertore with her Live Wedding Show Band, and an enviable reputation for being probably the most experienced all-round Wedding Singer in Scotland, Marj will provide an excellent evening’s entertainment.
With a range of music from Soul, Classic Rock, Dance Floorfillers and a dollop of cheese thrown in for good measure, right through to the modern day bang-up-to-the-minute chart hits, Marj can guarantee a top class and fun-filled night with something for everyone. And she will gladly accept special requests (with notice given to source the backing track and rehearse new stuff).
As well as all this, she will also perform your first dance live (if required) or on CD or iPod if you prefer. And no Scottish wedding would be complete without a bit of ceilidh dancing. Marj can even call the dances for the novice dancer or those with two left feet!
She has also enlisted the help of a DJ friend to make up a segued (music all running together) set to keep the party going during the buffet/break(s). This is included in her Wedding Package at no extra charge. Background music can also be included prior to the start of the evening and the first dance on request.
Marj has performed at thousands of weddings, private and public events over many years at all the top venues all over Scotland, nationally and Internationally.
Hi Marj, what a brilliant night. My phone has been bombarded with texts saying what a great night. Everything was perfect and personalised to us. What a lot of work, but much appreicated. You are a star! Thanks also for getting Eva up to sing, that was great too. Also loved the Spanish twist to our special dance “Hero”, very clever. You made our night, thanks.
