Rebecca Rhosyn FAQ

Technical Questions

Is your equipment PAT tested?
Yes – we have our equipment tested annually and copies of certificates can be sent upon request.

What about Public Liability Insurance (PLI)?
Yes, we are fully insured through our membership with ISM.

Do you provide a PA and Lighting?
We can provide a full 2 speaker PA setup but unfortunately we do not have any lighting (but watch this space!)

How long do you need to set up and do you need a soundcheck?
We always ask for one hour as setup time, and if possible we will also do a short soundcheck. This enables us to give you the best possible performance and reduces the risk of poor sound quality and any feedback issues during the performance. However, we understand that weddings can run to a strict schedule and it’s not always possible to do a soundcheck.

Performance Questions

Can we come and watch you live?
Yes! We perform at lots of local shows so keep an eye on the Facebook page and any monthly blog updates. This is a chance for you to come and see us in action (as well as our setup) and we always recommend coming to listen to us before booking us. If you can’t make it to any of our performances, you can always check out the Youtube channel to get an idea of how we sound.

What happens if you fall ill on the day?
We are proud to say that we have never cancelled a wedding performance due to illness or emergencies. However, should this situation arise, we would directly contact you as soon as possible to inform you of the situation, and recommend another musician from our carefully selected group of musicians from all over the UK. For any further information, have a read of our T&C’s which you receive when you have a meeting with us.

Do we need a DJ if you are performing at our evening reception?
If booking us to perform at your evening reception, we strongly recommend also booking a DJ as we unfortunately cannot provide DJ or disco services.

Do you learn requests?
Yes! We know that some songs are very meaningful to you and so we would be more than happy to learn requests.

Booking Questions

What happens when I enquire with you?
Let us know your date and we can check our diary for if we are available, we aim to contact you back within 24 hours. If we are available, we would be in touch with you to find out some more information about your requirements and to schedule a free meeting with you.

How does the booking process work? Do we pay a deposit and when is the final balance due?
At your free pre-wedding meeting we will discuss your quotation and requirements, and if you are happy to go ahead we ask that a 25% deposit is due for 1 week after your meeting, otherwise you date will become available for other couples to book again. Once your deposit is paid, this holds your date so we will not book another wedding on that day. The deposit can be paid at your meeting by cash or cheque, or you can pay within the 1 week period via bank transfer. Your final balance is then due 2 weeks before your wedding date.

We can also take urgent bookings, in which case if the wedding date is within 2 weeks of enquiring, then the full balance must be paid immediately to secure your date.

Do we need to provide you with food?
No not at all, as we can bring our own pack-up, although offers are lovely!

Colwick Hall Wedding Spectacular

On Sunday 4th March I exhibited at my final wedding fayre of Spring 2018, The Colwick Hall Wedding Spectacular. To say the weather had been so poor throughout the week, it didn’t put off many visitors as the fayre was extremely busy! This was also the first time I had sung all week as I had been poorly with the flu, but my voice held out and I got to sing lots of songs for people.

We booked lots of meetings with lovely couples and I can’t wait to start helping you plan your special day! My wedding fayres for the autumn season are yet to be confirmed, so keep an eye out on my Facebook page for when I announce which shows I will be at.

Brown Cow, Mansfield

28423340_1207757646024694_4372314363329506091_o

On Sunday 25th February I performed a short set at the Brown Cow in Mansfield. The reason I only did a 15 minute set is because my throat was extremely sore and I didn’t want to push it more than I needed to! At the time of writing my throat doesn’t hurt so much, but my voice is quite ‘broken’, so I’ve got until Sunday to get it better ready for  the Colwick Hall Wedding Fayre! I sang some quite easy songs at the Brown Cow so I don’t think I did extra damage to my voice by singing, it’s just letting whatever illness I have pan out!

Another mishap was that my piano stand broke! To be fair, it was quite an old stand so I’m not too annoyed about it. The picture above is my impromptu set up – thanks to Kyle & Phil for your quick thinking so that the show could go on!

As my throat was sore, I asked the audience to sing my final song, ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ – thank you so much for helping me out! It was also a nice change to just play piano while everyone was singing along.

This set was my last with Roots Acoustic for the near future, as I am winding down my live public performances with my wedding coming up. I will be coming back in the summer! My last performance with the piano will be at the Tap & Tumbler in Nottingham on Wednesday 21st March, where I am the guest act for their open mic evening.

Dates to Watch Out For in March!

Just a quick blog post about everything upcoming in March! I’m winding down performances this month as my own wedding is coming up in April, so if you don’t catch me during March, the next time you will probably see me performing is June!

  • On Sunday 4th March I will be at my last wedding fayre of the spring season, at the Colwick Hall Wedding Spectacular 11am-3pm. Come and look through my huge song list (and ask me to sing one!) and check out my exclusive wedding show details. You can get your FREE tickets here: http://bit.ly/ColwickTickets
  • On Wednesday 21st March I will be headlining the Open Mic at the Tap & Tumbler in Nottingham city centre at 10pm. This is my last performance with the piano until June (ish) so make sure you come along to watch! Have a look at the event page and make sure you click ‘Attending’ here: https://goo.gl/vT8W9g

On Sunday 18th February we exhibited at Goosedale’s Wedding Fayre and we met lots of lovely brides, grooms and their families! It was a last minute wedding fayre but it ended up being the quickest one we have done for set up and pack down! (looks like we have got our routine sorted!)

As always, ‘Perfect’ by Ed Sheeran was the most popular requested song for me to sing but surprisingly, ‘I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing’ by Aerosmith was also requested a few times!

Our last wedding show of the spring season will be at Colwick Hall on Sunday 4th March so make sure you catch us there!

Charity Gig for ClicSargent

Screen Shot 2018-02-04 at 21.33.55

On Sunday 4th February I performed a set at The Admiral Sir John Borlase Warren as part of their fundraiser for the charity ClicSargent.

Kicking off the music was Mike Hardy, followed by myself, then Josh and Mike and finally Jake and Sam headlining.

I’m sure that once again we raised loads of money for ClicSargent, it was a fantastic evening with a great turnout. Many thanks to everyone who kindly came up to me after my set and told me how much they enjoyed it!

Over the next few weeks I’ll be uploading a couple of videos I recorded at the gig to my Youtube channel, so give me a subscribe to be updated when I upload a new video!
