The Celtic Singing Waiters
Due to the popularity of the Opera Singing Waiters in Ireland, the Celtic Singing Waiters was formed.
In this set up you can choose from a 3pc or smaller 2pc line up. The waiter is very bad at his job but everyone loves him because he is great craic and he can’t help bursting into songs at a moment’s notice.
When the Banqueting Manager is making his speech about a lost mobile phone, the waiter grabs the phone and announces that he has to telephone his mother.
He starts to sing her favorite song: ‘It’s A Long Way To Tipperary’ (a cappella)
The Banqueting Manager joins in on the chorus much to everyone’s surprise and they finish together on a high note. The waiter then sings a song that everyone loves in Clonmel which is the birth place of Ireland’s great tenor Frank Patterson
“But for this one you really need a girl to join you,” he says looking around the room wistfully.
During ‘The Last Rose of Summer’ the waiter approaches the shy waitress and she causes much surprise when she joins in for verse two. They duet in verse 3 and the Banqueting Manager returns to sing the Munster rugby anthem ‘Stand Up and Fight’.
‘Katie’ by Jimmy MacCarthy and‘ Whiskey in the Jar’ follow, leading to the dramatic conclusion when, during ‘Nessum Dorma’, the waiter reveals he is actually half Italian and his real love is opera! The final encore is “Time To Say Goodbye “ .
