Act Profile

The Mocking Birds

The Mocking Birds is made up of three fantastic, experienced and highly accomplished vocalists, namely Sarah , Suzi & Pippa. Run by Sarah, the act is relatively new but brings together three of the industry's most acclaimed singers with a wealth of talent, knowledge and credentials between them.

Individually they have performed for all manner of celebrities, royalty and VIPS, plus countless corporate and private clients, as soloists as part of the UK's leading function bands. With venues such as The Hilton chain, Blackpool Tower Ballroom, The Dorchester, The Grosvenor, The Bedford, Leeds Castle and Royal Albert Hall sprinkled all over their CVs, they are individually renowned, but collectively they are even more dangerous!!

Having already performed at renowned yet diverse venues such as Troxy, The Hilton and The Towngate Theatre, with clients already including The Met Police, the Arts Council, JD Sports and Teenage Cancer Trust, The Mocking Birds are fast becoming the most sought after close harmony trio on the circuit.

Testimonials

THE most amazing band ever! We had them at our wedding and they were just brilliant! Professional, beautiful and fun! Can't recommend them enough! WORTH EVERY PENNY!

-Mrs Matthews!


Dear Sarah,
Just a quick line to say thank you so much to all three of you for Sunday.
The music and your performance was great and everyone absolutely loved it. You delivered exactly what I had hoped for.
The people at Crown River also really liked your act (even the Captain Jack said to me afterwards how good he thought you were for the boat) and Jenny now has your details so I do hope you might get some more work out of it!
Many thanks
Jane

“I am writing to let you know how much we all enjoyed your performance at the country club last week. Despite the fact that none of our party was around at the time of the Andrews Sisters, the act is so evocative of the era it instantly recreates the atmosphere of the old Hollywood films we have all seen and all love.The styling and costumes were spot on and the intricate close vocal harmonies were a foot tapping joy, even to the more modern and younger ears!
The set delivered a perfect and popular contrast to the rest of the music on that night, and I am sure we will be seeing you again very soon. Congratulations”

-M McCarthy, private party (30/10/09)


“Thank you so much for all your efforts last night! Your singing was wonderful and the act brilliant. Very cheering on what was a hideous night weather-wise! It would be just wonderful if you could sing for us at future events, you are such crowd pullers! Thanks again for your generous contribution to the Teenage Cancer Trust.”

-Kate and Helen, TCT Volunteers (2/12/09)


“Thanks so much for the fab performance The Rockabellas gave to our fundraising night. You guys were totally awesome and we have had so much great feedback about you. We managed to raise Ł2618 which was an amazing amount of money and you guys added so much to the success of the night. I was very impressed with the slickness of your performance and the sound was unbelievable. Thanks so much.”

-G Bourdillan Constable, fundraising event (8/11/09)


“Meant to email you to say thank you so much for last night. We thought that the Rockabellas were great and would certainly recommend them to anybody having an event.”

-H Twyman, Christopher Place (9/12/09)


“Sorry to have missed your full performance yesterday. I did however see the last 5 minutes and I thought it was superb, I have given a quote to the East Anglian today as they asked for my highlights and I mentioned your group. You were extremely professional and worked very hard with the crowds. We look forward to seeing you later in the year for our Armed Forces Event”

-S Fairweather, Bury St Edmunds Christmas Fayre (28/11/09)


“You girls stole the show, and that’s saying something when you are meant to be the star of it yourself! Looking forward to featuring you again in the autumn.”
-A Mawbey, 'Andy Mawbey’s Fabulous Vegas Event’ theatre production (15/03/10)
