When it comes to planning your special day, one of the most exciting aspects is definitely the fine-tuning of the intricate details; all of the finishing touches which elevate a wedding day to something truly unforgettable. And music is perhaps the quintessential example of this, for it has the power to capture the emotions of such a unique celebration so beautifully, enhancing the scene for the bridal couple, their families and friends.
Making memories for years to come.
We are incredibly blessed in this part of southern Spain to have a vast array of musical talent on our doorstep. One of those talents is the inimitable musical duo, ‘Zing’, and we are absolutely thrilled to feature them in today’s article.
Zing’s professional background is phenomenally impressive, to say the least. It’s no exaggeration to say that between them, they have worked with some of the world’s top artists; musicians as renowned and diverse as Suzi Quatro, Sophie Ellis Bextor and Ed Sheeran – and danced with the infamous Prince!
Between them, they have also obtained a Music A Level and a Jazz degree, sung in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s choir, produced their own original dance music tracks, chalked up years of entertainment experience on cruise ships, fronted bands, and worked with a global beer giant.
All of this in the name of music!
It’s quite an energetic and all-encompassing C.V.
Zing, comprising of Carmine on keys, and Gillian on super soulful saxophone, have gone on to play in theatres, stadiums and venues all over the world – and in their own right. Experienced performers, they are not only talented musicians but singers, too. Both Gillian and Carmine offer sensational lead and backing vocals. In short, they are a fantastic combination – and team – who are (naturally) very much in demand for events dotted all over the Costa del Sol and inland. We cannot recommend them highly enough!
But what else sets Zing apart?
“Our style of music is varied, from chilled acoustic sets, to the best pop, soul and Motown party classics – including modern-day chart hits. We also have Italian and Spanish songs in our repertoire.”
This dynamic duo may have at least 300 songs in their regular repertoire, but they are also more than happy to learn a couple’s ‘first dance song’ so that they can perform it live during the evening celebrations. Not only that, but they are also more than happy to include any other special songs that brides and grooms would like to add to their evening playlist, making their music wonderfully bespoke and tailor-made for the theme of each individual wedding celebration.
Gillian can also play songs on saxophone to accompany the DJ, if required.
The sample set list looks fabulous and fun, and is broken down into a number of music genres as follows:
Highlights in this genre have to include ‘Baker Street’ by Gerry Rafferty, and ‘Wicked Game’ by Chris Issac.
Barry Manilow’s ‘Copacabana’ and The Rolling Stones’ ‘Honky Tonk Woman’ easing everyone onto the dance floor.
This genre features a little Prince and Ed Sheeran courtesy of mega hits ‘Cream’ and ‘Shape of You’.
‘This Girl’ by Kungs and ‘Promises’ by Calvin Harris are just two of the numbers in this musical category that will raise the roof!
And, of course, no wedding in Spain would be complete without the hypnotic beat of Enrique Iglesias’s ‘Bailando’ and The Gypsy Kings’ ‘Volaré’.
Our heartfelt thanks to Gillian and Carmine. Zing really do put the zing in AMAZING, and we couldn’t be happier to work with them. Here’s to celebrating many up-and-coming weddings in sunny Spain with their wonderful music.
