"Start The Party are fantastic. They had everyone dancing throughout the night. Charlotte and the team were absolutely fabulous playing all the songs we wanted and the vocals and music was so professional and note perfect. We will definitely be booking them again. I thought I would be dragging people on the dance floor but oh no, Start The Party did that themselves with their brilliant singing and music. If you are looking for a band to get everyone dancing, to keep your party alive and to have all ages satisfied - look no further, book Start The Party, you will not be disappointed."

Ayah and James Brookhouse, Wedding Party, Shrigley Hall, Cheshire 26th August 2019
Charlotte Day is a professional singer, songwriter, producer and vocal coach from Macclesfield, Cheshire in the North West of England.
She started making music at the tender age of 14 with nothing more than a basic home keyboard and four-track recorder. Whilst at college she thrived on live music and joined her first band as lead vocalist. Two years later, at the age of 18, she qualified with a diploma in I.T. but already knew then that music was to be her vocation in life.
In a short space of time she was astounding audiences far and wide and was spotted by a local producer who immediately offered Charlotte her first development and publishing contract. This marked the next stage in her career and allowed her to expand on studio techniques as well as giving her the opportunity to write more of her own material.
In 1998 she had her first international release with the debut single 'Sureshot' by Daytona. Subsequently, collaboration with other writers and producers lead to further recording success as well as many appearances on national television and radio.
In 2004 Charlotte performed, co-wrote and co-produced on the album 'Anthem Alert' by euro dance outfit 'Soda Club', later followed by her first UK number one club chart hit 'Finally', released in 2005 on EMI Records and produced by multi-platinum remixers Love To Infinity.
In 2010 a collaboration with Neoteric Records resulted in a worldwide release of the single 'Pride (a deeper love)' which featured mixes from top uk producers 7th Heaven and soulshaker.
Today, with over 20 years experience in the music industry, Charlotte has carved a successful career not only as an artist in her own right but also as a highly experienced session singer. Conversant in many styles ranging from jazz to pop, her voice has appeared on numerous top 40 records, and she has recorded for the likes of Heather Small, Dannii Minogue, Loleatta Holloway, and Faith Hill to name a few, as well as many chart topping dance producers.
With an eclectic taste in Music, Charlotte's original work embraces many genres, with much inspiration coming from artists such as KT Tunstall, Carole King, Fleetwood Mac and The Corrs amongst others.
She regularly performs live throughout the UK, both solo and in various duos, trios and bands, all of which feature some of the north west's finest musicians. For further information please visit the EVENTS page.
Aside from performing, Charlotte privately coaches other aspiring singers on a one to one basis or large groups of singers. For more information please visit the TUITION page.

"I hired Charlotte's band - Start the Party for my son’s 21st and husband’s surprise 50th, I have been to lots of events over the years weddings, birthdays, Christmas parties and have seen all types of bands but these guys are one of the best bands I have ever seen! I was a bit worried about the fact that there was a wide range of ages there from small children to great grandmas and wondered if they could realistically keep everyone entertained but I needn’t have worried - they performed some fantastic songs and covered all tastes and age ranges! The DJ set that they played in between sets was brilliant, they kept everyone on the dance floor all night! They did exactly what they say on the tin “START THE PARTY!!” Hire them now for your next event you won’t regret it!!"
