Full Biography

Welcome to The Barberellas, a professional girl group from the North East of England, specialising in Barbershop and close-harmony a cappella singing. Whether you’re the bride and groom looking for something special to walk down the aisle, an event planner looking for musical entertainment to impress guests as they sip champagne, or someone arranging a surprise birthday party for a loved one, look no further – The Barberellas have it all (and wear really nice shoes!).

The singers have a wealth of professional singing experience, from fronting 35-piece orchestras to providing live backing vocals for major bands such as Australian Pink Floyd, as well as studio session singing for use in theatres nationally. But it’s getting back to basics and singing without accompaniment that the singers enjoy the most...

The Barberellas perform classic barbershop arrangements such as Lollipop and Mister Sandman, but also love creating exclusive barbershop arrangements of songs from other eras, such as those by Jackson 5 and Lady Gaga.

The quartet perform entirely without accompaniment and can provide a PA system should the client require. They often perform during wedding ceremonies, pre-dinner drinks, between meal courses, at birthday parties and corporate events, as well as masquerading as venue staff and bursting out into song in their Singing Waitress package!

The Barbarellas are happy to tailor their image and set content to fit in with your theme. They can also provide a live cocktail pianist in between sets.

“The Barberellas were approachable, polite and accommodating with our requests prior to the wedding. They did some modern tunes with a twist, which the guests loved. The girls looked great and were perfect playing over drinks before dinner.”
J. Adams, Wedding, October 2010

“The Barberellas arrived early and were very well organised. They were polite & friendly, extremely professional. Regarding their performance, they exceeded our expectations!!”
H. Barker, Wedding, February 2011

“They kept the atmosphere pleasant and the guests entertained while we had our photos taken. I couldn’t have asked for a better group to singing for our wedding.”
Mr Vasey, Wedding, March 2011

“Just wanted to say a big thank you for helping to make our wedding a great event. Everyone had a lot of fun, and The Barberellas were a huge success. The variety of music the girls sang suited the differing age ranges and tastes among us, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment. I can highly recommend these girls. Thanks again, we wish you success in the future, and would love to hear you sing again!”
Priya Singh, Wedding, March 2011

“We were guests at our friends wedding, can we book you for ours???? WE LOVED YOU!”
Natalie Johnson, enquiry, June 2011

5 stars - The Barberellas are Highly Recommended
booked The Barberellas for their Wedding in North Yorkshire

“The artists were fantastic! From booking with them right through to last minute checks the ladies were always on it! With the booking being a surprise for my 'husband' at our wedding it was all organised in secret. The ladies understood this and communicated with me as requested via the route I advised them of. In the run up to the wedding they helped me arrange the timings with the hotel and were very accommodating. In the last week of the preparations they were in touch and we chatted through all arrangements ensuring everything was as planned. On the day, they were amazing! They sang whilst we had our wedding breakfast and kept in touch with me ensuring all was OK. Our guests commentated on how different and fab they were. My 'husband' was very impressed!! Thank you ladies and Adam at Alive Network for making it all happen!!”

“Exceptional! The guests were still talking about the performance the next morning over breakfast!! They had taken time to put together a list which was sympathetic to the American guests and there was something for everyone.”

I would certainly book them again.

“The Barberella's were booked for my wedding day. They were a wonderful surprise for my groom, serenading him before I walked down the aisle and then singing me down the aisle. My guests enjoyed every minute of their performance and I would certainly book them again.”
