Ryan Performs at the Key Moments You Desire

Ryan will liaise with his client and funeral directors and associates to make all arrangements.

Ryan can perform live and provide pre-recorded music at key moments. This could be in a chapel or crematorium, or at the graveside; for example as mourners walk towards the grave and as the casket is lowered. His battery powered, discreet and reliable Bose PA speaker facilitates this.

A special song, artiste or genre which was a favourite of the deceased, can provide added comfort during the Funeral Ceremony. This may a song they used to sing, which marked a special occasion or that had an important meaning to them.

Ryan can also perform at the Funeral Reception afterwards, and at any other part of the funeral as per requirements.

Ryan provided amazing music at my father's funeral service and reception afterwards. Ryan is very friendly, a great listener and made the whole experience feel comfortable when we were originally a little nervous and in a difficult place mentally. His performance of My Way, by Frank Sinatra, as my father's casket was lowered, was extremely touching and something I know he would have adored.

“Ryan was amazing. We hired Ryan for a funeral, Ryan communicated with me before hand to make sure he knew exactly what I wanted. He was extremely respectful and professional through out the service and the wake. I’m so happy I chose Ryan.”
