Winners of the “Best Musical Act 2019” in the West Midlands and National Finalists at "The Wedding Industry Awards", Undercover Artists combine the talents of West End performers to bring you the best in entertainment for your event. Covering all styles of music, each of our singing waiters has trodden the boards of the West End stage or on UK number 1 tours, appearing in shows such as Les Miserables, Saturday Night Fever, Joseph & the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, Beauty & the Beast, and Spamalot (the Monty Python Musical) to name but a few. We are a group of friends who have either trained together at London drama schools, appeared in shows together, or have been recommended by another member of the group.
Our team will create a bespoke package tailor made to your needs, and using the same core performers ensures that we deliver a highly choreographed and polished show. Performing for 30 minutes, our singing waiters will integrate themselves into your special day, taking on the role of the wait staff or one of your guests before bursting into song, getting everyone involved. We can also provide alternative entertainment, from Classical Duos, to Party Bands, Frozen Characters and Drag Artistes, so please let us know what we can do for you.
From large Corporate Events to small intimate weddings, our Singing Waiters have performed for the likes of Prime Minister - Theresa May, Coca Cola and Chelsea FC. Our Singing Staff have visited some of the most beautiful venues the UK has to offer, from Warwick Castle, to Blenheim Palace. Have a look at some of our previous Undercover Artists events that we have been lucky enough to have been involved with.
Here are just a few videos of some of our Undercover Artists / Singing Waiters in action.

Our performers at Undercover Artists all have West End credits to their name, performing in shows such as Les Miserables, Jersey Boys, Evita and Saturday Night Fever. From Classical and Musical Theatre to Rat Pack and Swing, we have all genres of music covered. Have a listen to what we can offer below.
We don’t just perform at Weddings, we also regularly perform at huge corporate events. Here are just a few of our previous clients:
Every surprise will be different depending on the party and situation, although we generally follow a similar pattern for our shows. The team you have booked will arrive an hour and a half before your guests are due to arrive to set up the PA system and sound check, this is so that no one in your party can spot us and ruin the surprise. We will then change into the uniform of the venue and start helping out with duties for when your guests arrive to blend in. Throughout the meal/buffet/drinks reception we will be as involved as possible, helping out with canapes, starters, mains, etc... before bursting into song as desserts have been placed down.
Unlike other companies, we don't like causing a negative atmosphere by starting with an argument, or bringing a chef out who hasn't been seen throughout the entire meal. We like to use one of our female waitresses who has been serving you all day. As the last dessert has been placed on the table, one of our team will be walking through the room with a very large tray of spoons ready to place them on another table, only as they do so, they fall and trip on the floor falling flat on their face, causing a massive commotion. As guests go to help them up, one of the other waiters will start the music, and the waitress who has fallen on the floor will get up and start singing, before others join in as the set goes on.
Our surprise shows usually last 30 minutes, this is usually 6-8 songs. We find this amount of time works best and keeps everyone entertained. We have an extensive set list which you can choose from, ranging from Classical, to Rat Pack. If you can't find what you're looking for we will learn an additional 2 songs with 1 months notice.
At Undercover Artists, we only use the highest standard of performers. What makes us different is that we are a small community of singers who have all worked together in the West End or at high profile events together over the past 10 years. From performing at the Champions League Final in Berlin, to The Royal Albert Hall, we only use the best singers. All singers have been Classically trained or attended Drama School in London so can perform all genres of music. We like to throw a couple of Classical songs in there to show what we can really do, but we guarantee only the best.
Our standard package comes in teams of 2, but we can provide up to teams of 6 should you wish. We also provide male and female performers with the male/female or female/female being our most popular lineup. Please specify which you would prefer when booking so that we can accomodate your needs.
Yes we do. We provide PA systems and radio mics for our shows. However if you have a larger venue with over 200+ guests you will need to arrange, or we will arrange on your behalf a larger PA system (at an additional cost). We are also fully insured with Public Liability insurance with coverage of up to £10,000,000 and can provide a copy should you need it. All our equipment has also been PAT tested.
Our main base is in Warwickshire in the Midlands but we have performers dotted all over the country, from London to Derbyshire. We will also travel and have performed all over the World, from The Property Awards in Northern Cyprus to the Caribbean, no show is too far for us to travel.
Yes, if you would rather something a bit different we can offer Singing Policemen/Women, Singing bar staff, Singing guests, the list goes on. We can also provide singing Frozen characters.
To book our singing waiters we have a basic contract in place which holds all information together, there’s also a 20% non-refundable deposit along with the signed contract to secure your date. The remaining balance is due the week of your event and can be paid either via BACS, cash on the day, or cheque (please note there is a small fee to pay via cheque and this must be cleared 1 week prior to your event).
