Q: Can I book the carolers to sing outside?
A: Carolers can sing outside when the weather is above 55 degrees or the wind chill is above 50 degrees. Singing in rain or colder weather can damage a caroler's voice and thereby hurt the beauty of the a cappella singing a client is hiring. After 29 years experience in atmosphere entertainment, our carolers know how to best be used in any setting and can help a client or event planner use the entertainment to best effect any gathering.
