Q. WHICH CENTRAL AVENUE SINGER WILL I GET?

We always endeavour to provide the core musicians displayed on our promotional material. However, due to additional commitments of our members, we can not always guarantee a full core lineup. If a requested musician is unable to fulfill the agreed Service, you will be notified with sufficient notice. Specific Central Avenue singers can be requested and booked, however, they can never be guaranteed for bookings due to illness or other unforeseen circumstances that may prevent them from performing.

We are more than happy to take song requests, especially for first dances! If your request is not in our typical set list we will need at least a month prior notice before the event to ensure a strong performance. First dances come as standard for wedding bookings.
