"A perfect addition to Weddings, Private Functions and Corporate Events"

About the Act:

Katy James is a professionally trained, solo female vocalist based in West Yorkshire. Katy has over 12 years of performing experience, having sung around the UK, internationally, and onboard cruise ships. She is also extremely accommodating and easy to work with. She has a wide repertoire of songs and styles to choose from, but is also happy to try and learn new song requests for your event.

Katy has performed at a variety of venues and events, and has been the winner of numerous awards and competitions. She loves performing at weddings and private events, and has also performed at corporate events, outdoor festivals, hotels, cabaret evenings, golf clubs and various others.

She can perform a wide variety of music genres and themes, and am more than happy to personalise my set list to suit any event. My shows are always professional, not only the performance side, but also with costumes and quality tracks. She also has a full PA system complete with lighting, so her shows not only sound great, but look professional too.

We still get compliments from our guests now on how amazing she was. I would 100% recommend her to anyone who would like an incredible voice to top off their special day!

Private Client - Birthday Party
Hired Katy to perform at my aunties 90th birthday party. I was looking for a very specific style (40s/50s/60s) and Katy was able to cater for this. The performance was enjoyed by all- she was fantastic. She was very friendly and professional and we felt she enjoyed her self as much as we did. Would defiantly hire again. Thank you so much Katy.

Engagement Party
We asked Katy to sing at our Engagement Party after hearing her sing when we were on holiday on a cruise. Katy performed her own cabaret on board, and we instantly fell in love with her voice and her rendition of "It's All Coming Back To Me Now" by Celine Dion. We are so thrilled that we chose to have Katy sing at our Engagement Party, she was extremely polite and professional. She was fantastic at communicating with us beforehand and really got to know us as a couple, and the sort of music we enjoyed. She made the whole experience feel really personal, and we still get comments now from friends and family saying how fantastic she was! We cannot recommend her enough!

We booked Katy for the ceremony of our wedding in 2018 and she was outstanding! She sang the songs requested so beautifully and guests loved her performance.
