Review by Sophie – Prince Of Wales Hospice, Charity Event ★★★★★

Paula Marie performed to 65 guests at an intimate Sparkling Afternoon Tea in aid of The Prince of Wales Hospice. We received positive feedback from all our guests, who thoroughly enjoyed their afternoon singing and dancing to classic vintage hits from the 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Paula not only has a stunning voice, but also charmed guests with her knowledge of vintage music, fun facts and audience interaction. Our guests enjoyed their afternoon so much, they demanded an encore! We would definitely recommend The Vintage Vocalist!

Review by Steven & Marisha Lowe, Wedding ★★★★★

Paula’s dulcet tones stood out over five other contenders when we set about tracking down a singer for our 40’s themed wedding reception. From our initial correspondence to her routine, Paula excelled throughout. Her singing gained plaudits from all who attended and she certainly delivered when we requested a song that at the time wasn’t part of her repertoire. She accepted the challenge and even took her time to write her own backing track. She really did deliver and made the final dance something to remember. All her musical equipment/sound system were excellent, even down to the vintage microphone and attire – she never faltered on detail. Paula is exceptional, not only as a singer, but her organisation allowed a stress free transaction and she is highly recommend for anyone who requires a 40’s singer.

Review by Seana Rose, Wedding ★★★★★

Paula-Marie sang at our wedding and she was absolutely fantastic! She was so friendly and professional. Making plans with Paula was simple and easy, we chatted for ages on the phone like we already knew one another! Her voice is so beautiful and suited to the genre of music she sings. Her performance really made our evening and had everyone up dancing and enjoying themselves! Every single guest commented on how great she was! She was so lovely with our 4 year old daughter who wanted to sing and dance with her – it wasn’t a problem with Paula, she let her get involved which made the night even more special. Could not fault anything at all and would highly recommend Paula to anyone wanting an authentic vintage performer at their event!

Review by Ken Shentall, Birthday party ★★★★★

Paula Marie was absolutely brilliant. Voice and song choice with background history was superb. Looked and sounded the part. Very pleasant demeanour. 100% would recommend. Good value for money. Thank you from all of us.

Review by Donna Shaw, Wedding ★★★★★

We booked Paula Marie for our daughters vintage themed wedding in January and I have to say she is one of the nicest people I have had the pleasure of meeting! She was very accommodating and worked around an impromptu last minute surprise we had for the bride and groom, she performed all of the songs we had requested and exceeded our expectations by far. I would not hesitate to recommend Paula, she is down to earth, very professional and has an amazing voice! Just need to marry off another child so we can book her again 🙂

Review by Kerry Pointing, Birthday Party ★★★★★

We had Paula to sing at my Mum’s 80th birthday party, this was a surprise present from all the family. Paula sang my Mum’s favourite songs from the 1940’s, which I was able to choose and she sang them in 3 sets throughout the evening. Paula looked very professional with hair, make up, clothes from the era and even a vintage 1940’s microphone to complete the look. Paula kept me informed of everything prior to the evening so it all went smoothly on the night. Paula chatted to my Mum and other guests throughout the evening, which was lovely. My Mum absolutely loved it and I can honestly say it really made her birthday celebrations special. So in a nut shell – great voice – great personality- great time had by all, cannot recommend highly enough.  Thank you Paula.

Review by Nicola West, Birthday Party ★★★★★

I wanted to thank Paula Marie for making my mother’s 80th birthday party so memorable. The singer one of the highlights of the party and Paula Marie has an amazing and special voice and went that ‘extra mile’ to ensure that everyone had a fabulous time. Thank you again.

Review by Tim Brown, Classic Car Event ★★★★★

Paula Marie, the Vintage Vocalist performed at our event, the International Alvis Day last weekend at the Yorkshire Air Museum and put on an absolutely brilliant performance. Fabulous vocals and fantastic stage presence, appealing to everyone from toddlers to octogenarians and everyone in between. Truly something for everyone and we will definitely be booking you again!!! Thanks so much Paula for helping our day go with a swing!

Review by Jeff Addis, Birthday Party ★★★★★

What can I say… amazing singer, a true lady and true professional. Nothing was too much trouble for Paula, would recommend in a heartbeat. Thanks for making my Dad’s 70th such a wonderful night.

Review by Orrin Sweeting-Dixon, Wedding ★★★★★

Rob and I wanted to say a heartfelt thank you for making our wedding day truly more magical with your outstanding singing and captivating performances. You were so very friendly and we thought you were just wonderful! All of our guests have not stopped telling us, and everyone else, just how amazed they were with your performances. Rob and I have also been recommending you to lots of people since our wedding. You will always hold a special place in our memories and hearts for singing your beautiful version of ‘A nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square’ for our first dance song; it was so romantic and so perfect!

Review by Lucy Davies (Johnnie Johnson Housing), Corporate Event ★★★★★

Thank you so much for your wonderful music yesterday! Having you there was the icing on the cake – you created the perfect atmosphere and ambience for our special 50th anniversary celebration. Seeing our residents dancing to your music was absolutely fantastic!

Review by Susan Churcher, Wedding ★★★★★

Contact beforehand with Paula Marie was timely, good humoured and helpful. She arrived in extremely good time, was gorgeously turned out and warm with our guests. Slick and professional she selected her tracks in collaboration with us, sensitively responding to guests’ evident desire for the more up tempo tracks in her repertoire. Ultimately though it was the rich quality and perfect pitch of her voice that drew compliments from so many of our guests. How smugly pleased are we that we picked this act – a fabulously polished and glamorous alternative to a DJ – so perfect for our wedding.

Review by Hayley Ridgeway, Birthday Party ★★★★★

Paula Marie absolutely made the night! She stayed in touch with me from a few weeks before to check of any requirements and was so easy going. On the night she arrived with a smile and was amazing. She got everyone dancing and spoke to everyone between songs. Everyone commented on how good she was. Thank you so much!

Review by Frances Russell, Private Party ★★★★★

Paula Marie was brilliant, lovely to deal with, punctual, friendly, patient with all my exuberant grandchildren. Her singing was all I hoped for and I heard nothing but praise for her music and two performances. Paula Marie was definitely value for money and I would have no hesitation in recommending her.

Review by Jane Hand, Corporate Event ★★★★★

We were over the moon with Paula Marie ‘The Vintage Vocalist’. We invited her to perform during the reception drinks and meal of our Christmas Masquerade Ball and she was incredible. Perfect for our night! Thank you.

Review by Aimee Cairns, University Event ★★★★★

Really great singer who set the mood for our event perfectly. Lots of positive feedback from guests. Communication was great and the whole process was very professional.

Review by Kerry Littler, Wedding ★★★★★

Paula Marie was absolutely amazing, I would recommend her to anyone organising a vintage event. I couldn’t have asked for anymore, wonderful voice and really lovely too. Very professional but also very friendly, down to earth and happy to accommodate things or changes no probs. Thankyou so much Paula xx

Review by Helen Perkins, Wedding ★★★★★

Well, what can I say? Absolutely brilliant. Paula Marie sang at our wedding in 2015; a smallish affair (with a little vintage theme going on), we wanted just something that little extra, and so we treated ourselves to the Vintage Vocalist. After hearing a sample and looking at her repertoire, we couldn’t say no! Paula was lovely herself, her song list was amazing and she even offered to learn a new song just for us! On the day of the wedding things ran a little late, and Paula waited patiently during this time. Our guests adored her, we adored her, definitely one of the highlights of the wedding I think! My dad even booked her for his wedding the following year because his fiancee and he were so impressed 🙂 (and she impressed again there!) Basically, if you are looking for a live, vintage style singer, go for the Vintage Vocalist. She is perfect for the job! 🙂

Review by Mr and Mrs Bradley, Wedding ★★★★★

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you for Saturday night. Your voice is beautiful and everybody has commented on how nice, easy to work with and talented you are. We will certainly be keeping you in mind for all of our future events and will be recommending you to everyone that we know.

Review by Dan Palmer, Music Festival Event ★★★★★

Review by Sheralyn Wade, Thirsk Racecourse ★★★★★

Another wonderful performance by Paula Marie and always an absolute pleasure to have here at Thirsk Races. We very much hope to have Paula Marie back next year to entertain our crowd.

Review by Barry Hibbert, Anniversary Party ★★★★★

Paula Marie – The Vintage Vocalist was an amazing show. The set was fantastic for all ages and nothing was too much trouble with all requests catered for. Paula has the most amazing period voice that sounds like it came out of the best the period could have ever put on stage and she looks stunning. Her notes and voice was absolutely amazing. Paula was charming, professional and had everyone dancing and singing along. To say Paula made the event from start to finish would be an understatement. I would highly recommend her for any event no matter the size!

Review by Vicky Williams, Village Hall Community Event ★★★★★

Paula Marie arrived in good time, set her own equipment up without any problems and was dressed to impress in 1940’s gear, and when she took to the stage she was absolutely superb! Not only is she a great singer but she was knowledgeable about the music, talked to the audience between songs and had us eating out of her hand – she was personal, friendly and, in the words of our Chairman ‘She made the night!’. We will definitely book Paula Marie for future events. She is versatile and an asset to any event. Well done Paula and thank you for a great evening!

Review by Dawn Hodgkinson, Birthday Party ★★★★★

Just wanted to let you know how much me and my friends enjoyed your singing. You must have sung those songs many times but you made everything sound fresh as if it was just for us. I loved it and will certainly recommend you to others.

Review by Tasmin Phillips, Hen Party ★★★★★

Review by Mick & Carol Brotherton, Wedding ★★★★★

We just wanted to say thank you for performing at our wedding on the 29th July. We have received fantastic feedback about the whole occasion and you were mentioned in practically every comment as being outstanding. We knew you would be great after seeing you at my daughters wedding last year but somehow the ambience of the venue seemed to perfectly capture your performance and we would like to convey our gratitude for helping make it such a memorable day.

Review by Sharon Dunne, Birthday Party ★★★★★

This was our mother’s 90th birthday party and we were all very impressed. Paula Marie has a beautiful voice and performed a fantastic set. She was very natural and connected with the guests effortlessly, the time just flew by and we all agreed she made our mother’s birthday one we shall all remember.

Review by Ellis Birtles, Birthday Party ★★★★★

We booked Paula Marie for my Dad’s 1940’s / 1950’s themed 60th birthday party. We couldn’t have picked a better act to perform for him, she was absolutely amazing!! Her voice is beautiful, and it was such a pleasure to have her attend and she had come all the way from Yorkshire to Bolton too! If you’re thinking of booking a true vintage singer, then Paula Marie is the lady for the job and you will not be disappointed! She also had no issues working alongside our DJ. I’d just like to say a massive thank you to her for making his day one of a kind and one to remember!! An absolutely outstanding 5 star act!!

Review by Nikki Alvey, Ladies Circle 80th Anniversary ★★★★★

Paula Marie absolutely wowed! We had 560 women attend the event and she sang them into the event and did a set at the end too. Everyone was up and dancing, joining in with the singalongs at the end. We couldn’t have asked for more and she far exceeded expectations- plus she was an absolute delightful addition to our top table. We can only hope she enjoyed herself as much as we did! Thank you!

Review by Amanda Layton, Wedding ★★★★★

We booked Paula Marie for our wedding! She was absolutely incredible, better than we could of imagined. She arrived early to set up, and was very professional throughout her sets. She sung all the requests we asked for and more! All our wedding guests were very impressed! She set the 1940s scene perfectly, we would definitely recommend her for any event! Thanks again.

Review by Sara Cornforth, 40th Birthday Party ★★★★★

Paula Marie performed at mine and my friends joint 40th on Saturday 26th November 2016. We chose to host a Hollywood themed party and wanted music that reflected this. Paula Marie was more than happy to accommodate and catered to our every need providing us with an array of Hollywood songs from the 1930’s to 1960’s. It has to be said, her voice is absolutely stunning and she was very professional throughout the night. The guests were blown away by her vocals as were we, and have recommended her to several people since the event.

Review by Roy & June Schofield, Masonic Ladies Night ★★★★★

Wow – what a fantastic night, we cannot thank you enough! As we had never seen you perform before we were on tenterhooks, but as soon as you started, we knew we had made the right decision – you were brilliant, everybody commented how wonderful you were, your choice of songs, your excellent voice and your whole appearance; the internet does not do you justice. You really helped in a massive way to make our ladies night a huge success, I hope we have the pleasure of your company again and maybe we will as a couple of people took your cards. So a huge thanks, we wish you all the very best for the future and if you ever need a recommendation just let us know – and we hope you enjoyed the evening. Many, many thanks.

Review by Sheralyn Wade, Thirsk Racecourse ★★★★★

Paula Marie has an amazing voice and really captivated the crowd. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend.

Review by Julia Smith – Stoke-on-Trent City Council, Festival Event ★★★★★

Fantastic singer who really added atmosphere to our event. Many customers and traders commented that she made the event really special. She got the volume set just right so it could be heard everywhere but traders could also converse easily with customers. I ended up being really busy on the day so she was left to her own devices but she got on and did the job without any ‘babysitting’ from us. She turned up on time for each set, introduced herself and performed to a high standard. We will definitely be booking her again.
