Louie Harding, Kensington, London
Dates Required: April 23rd early afternoon
I had booked a pianist, a tenor and singer to perform at a garden party concert on April 23rd early afternoon in Kensington, but the pianist and tenor have both dropped out.
I need to hire replacement pianist and tenor to perform golden age of Broadway and Jazz songs about spring? The tenor would ideally comfortable leading partner dancing with the soprano.
The original fee was £100 per performer.
The concert will be in two acts and will have food and drink which the performers would be welcome to help themselves to.
