To see and listen to Chess Taylor is a performance nobody should miss. Why – she is fantastic. Unlike many other singers, she can sing popular hits one moment and then tackle a demanding aria a few seconds later. I used to work in Entertainment television and Chess is one great singer.
Chess is blessed with a voice that seems to have no trouble dealing with every musical genre, from pop to musical theatre to classical. Everything is delivered with an easy confidence and a winning smile. My particular favourites were "Wishing you were somehow here again" and "Everyime we say goodbye" but the audience enjoyed every number she performed.
Having been on over 20 cruises in the last 10 years or so, I have seen many excellent cabarets performed by many fine singers. But this was definitely one of the very best and fully deserved the standing ovation that the delighted audience gave her!
The cabaret Classical Crossover was the best I have witnessed. A faultless performance of O Mio Babbino Caro had the audience captivated and spellbound. Everyone was on their feet and the standing ovation was thoroughly deserved. Chess has a voice that captivates the audience and an aura that you warm too.
Chess was absolutely amazing for our church wedding ceremony. She was really great at communicating with us and understanding what would make our ceremony special and went out of her way to learn some of the songs we wanted. Can't thank her enough!
Chess helped make my wife's 40th surprise birthday party very special. Chess is such a great singer and performer. The night couldn't have gone any better. All my guests were really impressed with How great she sang. If you want a singer for your party or event. I would highly recommend Chess.
Chess was our singer at our wedding ceremony. She sung 2 songs for us and our guests during the service and she really has the voice of an Angel. Not only did she sound fantastic, she was also extremely communicative, arrived an hour before the service to practice with the pianist who she had never worked with before and put me totally at ease. She’s also just a really lovely girl. I couldn’t recommend her and her stunning voice more highly
Chess performed two half hour sets at an Italian Night staged by Royds Masonic Lodge No 816 at Hollingworth Lake, Littleborough. She was fantastic and had her audience of around seventy eating out of her proverbial hand. The choice of music, operatic arias, songs from the shows and standards was pitch perfect, as, indeed, was Chess herself. The feedback I have received over the weekend has universally praised an excellent meal and, most particularly the choice of Chess Taylor as our entertainer...
Chess was utterly perfect! Great communication in advance of the gig to really understand what I wanted for my party and it felt like she was genuinely invested in helping me make it the best it could be! Chess is incredibly friendly and easy to work with and I'm so glad I booked her! Of course, it goes without saying that her singing talents are incredible which was why I chose her in the first place! I would highly recommend Chess for any singing gig!
It is my pleasure to say Thank you to Chess who made my partner's surprise 60th birthday party a truly magical event. Chess has the most beautiful mezzo soprano singing voice. Chess was professional from start to finish, friendly and approachable putting together a great set to entertain our guests and their mixed tastes. You really did add a touch of class and have made wonderful memories for us all. Just stunning. Thank you.
We had fantastic sunny weather, at a great wedding venue yesterday, and it was topped off by Chess' performance. We will always have memories of a complete and stunning set of songs. From the outset she was positive and friendly. We believed we'd made the right choice even before we met her. Chess responded positively to requests for songs which were new to her and worked the surprise we'd planned for Luke and Hannah, the bride and groom, supremely well. She has a lovely voice and guests continued to compliment her from the moment she started to sing and then throughout the day. We are still hearing those compliments today.
Thank you so much for your surprise performance. They were really, really surprised and loved every moment. Everyone loved it and were talking about it all evening and we are still receiving lovely messages today... We had a perfect day and you contributed to it’s perfection.... Again, thank you so much.
Chess has been wonderful to work with from start to finish and her performance was amazing! I would highly recommend Chess to others and hope to work with her again in the future. The zoom audience loved her show, thank you Chess!
Featuring an exceptional mix of well known classical songs and some of her personal favourites, this was one of the best additions to the Entertainment programme I could have asked for and I know the feedback was phenomenal from our guests. Chess’ personality really shone through with her smooth, natural transitions between songs and both performances I saw, received full lounge standing ovations.
My husband and I booked Chess to sing at our church wedding ceremony two weeks ago. Her performance was stunning and she made our ceremony unique and very special indeed. Her pure voice is absolutely beautiful and a joy to listen to. She sang several songs for us, both classical and more modern and she switched between the two effortlessly. All of our guests commented afterwards on just how excellent she was and how much they had enjoyed listening to her.
I have always considered Chess as one of the most naturally talented and gifted artists I have ever had the pleasure to work with and watch as an audience member. She has a massive future ahead of her, as her voice and talents deserve to be heard and seen. Exceptionally gifted with the world at her feet.
An evening on board Fred Olsens ship the Braemar was highlighted by an excellent classical crossover cabaret.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining evening.
Chess' beautiful voice and personality reached all corners of the lounge. We were treated to a selection of music from musical theatre to classical sung with great expression, even bringing my husband to tears.
Chess delivered a very high quality and varied show. The excellence of her singing was highlighted by the range of musical genres included, and her warmth and personality added greatly to the audience's enjoyment.
