My voice has a swing tone and I cover a broad songbook of jazz standards, contemporary pop, classic love songs & blues ballads.

"The Witching Hour"; the time when it is thought that magic things can happen... 

I'm a jazz soloist ready to put the SWING into your special day. I perform covers of a broad range of popular songs. From American standards like "At Last", "A Sunday Kind Of Love", "For Once In My Life" and "Can't Help Falling In Love" to jazzy remixes of modern pop songs including "Are You Gonna Be My Girl", "Crazy In Love", "Kiss Me", "Thinking Out Loud", "Seven Nation Army" and "No Diggity". 

I offer a variety of packages to suit your ceremony (processional, signing & recessional), reception or the whole kit n' kaboodle. 

The best bit about The Witching Hour? I offer a big band sound for a fraction of the price. As a soloist, I perform to high quality backing tracks complete with retro microphone, vintage music stand and my own speaker system suited to indoor or outdoor events that doesn't require enormous amounts of space or set-up. 

I have a generous song book I'd be happy to share with you and tailor a track list suited to your big day. Got a special request? No problem. Recent requests added to my repertoire have included Ed Sheeran's "Perfect", Florence & The Machine's "Stand By Me", Bob Marley's "Three Little Birds" and Beyonce's "Halo". 

I have been honoured to sing at weddings around Australia and abroad as well as various conferences & events and a monthly cabaret-style show in Sydney.

Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

Do you travel outside of Sydney?

Absolutely! Get in touch with details of your location and I'll put together a quote including travel. If it's driveable (ie. Hunter Valley, South Coast) we'll factor that in. I've also performed at weddings interstate and overseas.

Do you supply your own speaker and microphone?

Sure do. Actually I prefer it. It works perfectly with my backing tracks and I can fit in all sorts of clever spaces with the set-up. My microphone is vintage in style and my speaker system is Roland. Unfortunately, I can't loan my microphone for your speeches. 

What if we want to extend the performance by the hour?

This is no problem. An hour extension can be arranged in advance to add onto a package and quite likely it can be arranged on the day if you need more jazz! Time extensions cost $350 per hour. 

Do you have public liability insurance?

Of course! 

Why is your business called 'The Witching Hour'?

The business name has two origins... one is simply a play on my own name Kate Witchard 

The other is because 'The Witching Hour' was born out of a performance at my brother's wedding years ago. He was concerned about filling the transitional times in the day when the guests might become restless... waiting for the wedding to begin, waiting for photos to be taken, waiting for the bride and groom to arrive at the reception. So I sang my heart out to keep the mood high and the party in full swing.

What an incredible voice! Kate’s singing was absolutely fantastic! She brought tears to the eyes as she sang me down the aisle, and did a beautiful rendition of a special request ‘Perfect’. She added a real magical quality to the ceremony.

If you want to add something extraordinary to your wedding or event, you have to book Kate from The Witching Hour! We had Kate sing our special song during our ceremony and entertain our guests during cocktail hour. She gave us the confidence to pop out and have some photos and know that celebrations would still be kicking along without us. We returned to find people on the dance floor, singing along and having the best time... and calling for an encore when her set was finished. It really set the tone for an amazing night and our guests are still raving about her. Five big glittery jazzy stars for The Witching Hour.

Kate was the perfect edition to our wedding. Her amazing song list set the tone for our reception and was a great way to welcome people. People are still commenting about what a highlight her singing was. Whether she was singing a jazz version of a top 40 hit or a classic standard, people were mesmerised by her effortless performance style and amazing voice.

Thank you Alice & James! What a fun night full of laughter. Even the seagulls joined in for a singalong! Lots of love xxx

I originally heard Kate from The Witching Hour whilst I was out one night with some friends visiting quaint little book shop/bar in the inner city. From the first song till the last we were bewitched by her amazing voice and the sparkle of her dress. I was amazed with her talents so much so I booked her for a private function where my guests were absolutely amazed and once again I was not disappointed and neither were my guests. The variety of songs Kate has for you to choose from are great and how she puts her own twists on classic songs and the new stuff is amazing. I can not recommend The Witching Hour enough for your wedding or function. I will definitely be issuing her again.

Thank you so much for having me Rebecca! I had an absolute ball! This night was seriously razzle dazzle! Xx
