Buy a Pop Star Party experience at Gift Daze recording studiosPop Star Parties

Our Parties cater for up to 16 children (or adults) from ages 7 upwards.

On arrival to our purpose built studios near Tunbridge Wells, and after your initial briefing in The Green Room, the producer for your exclusive party session will take you through to the studio to prepare for recording.

A photo shoot for your unique Souvenir CD artwork will start the party rolling. Recording then begins with your chosen song(s). Warm-up and rehearsal recordings take place first, and you'll get to hear them back so you can improve those all important high notes - before the real takes, including solo parts from each singer, are finally recorded.

The best bits of all the recordings are spliced together and a cool production mix of your track is finally mastered on to your photo printed Souvenir CDs. Enjoy birthday cake and picnic snacks in The Green Room - indeed whatever you choose to bring. We provide Squash, Tea and Coffee free of charge.

An exclusive Music Web Page will be created where you can stream and download your music as MP3s, as well as downloading the high resolution picture we took for your CD print. Perfect for sharing with friends and family - wherever they are!

The optional video DVD captures video footage of the whole performance making a great keepsake for years to come.

Our studios are open Saturday and Sundays, and we can also accommodate parties in weekday evenings from 4.30pm, and any time during school holidays.

Information

Check party availability

Click the 'Check date' button in the Prices & Availability tab above to access our diary system now. We can host your Party on any day, including Saturdays and Sundays, and we also host your party on a weekday evening slot between 5pm and 7pm (book it for 4pm, and let us know if you'd like to start at 4.30pm or 5pm - depending on the distance you are travelling from after the school run).

Where are we? 

Our studios are in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

Not sure on numbers?

Definitely 6 but possible 8? A common occurrence, so we recommend you book a smaller party now for your chosen date and time. If necessary, nearer the time, log in to our website using details from your party confirmation letter, and press the upgrade button.

Choosing your song in advance

We have just about every song that has ever entered the top twenty in the UK charts, including the most recent hits. Pick an upbeat rock or pop song whilst being careful not to choose a vocally challenging song that some may find hard to perform (unless you have a rapper in the group!) If in doubt, rehearse a few songs together before your party to find the ideal choice.

Emerald and Diamond parties

You can upgrade in the shopping basket (by clicking the > sign next to the party name) to an Emerald or Diamond party (12 singers/16 singers respectively). When you have a party of more than 8 children, they will be split into 2 groups. Each group will take turns to perform and record their song whilst the other watch. The birthday girl or boy can be in both groups should they so wish. It is preferable that each group records a different song. You can upgrade at a later point if your party needs grow before your booking date.

Rehearsing

Backing tracks are great for rehearsals as they do not have any vocals recorded on them. You can find most tunes as backing tracks, aka Karaoke, by searching on YouTube.

Print your lyric sheets

You’ll need a copy of the printed lyrics for every two singers at the studio. They should span across 1 or 2 pages as page turning spoils the recording! You can locate lyrics on Google - or try azlyrics.com (will open in a new window).

Solo Parts

Plan your solo parts in advance. Hearing individual singers always makes the finished mix of your track sound better. Split the verses up so each singer gets to sing a line or two. The chorus should be sung by the whole group. Mark your lyric sheets with who is doing what bits.

Prompt arrival

Prompt arrival is paramount so that we can start on schedule. On arrival you will be shown through to The Green Room and you can relax and use our facilities before the party starts.

The Green Room

Up to 4 spectators are welcome in The Green Room - more by appointment.

Souvenir CD 

The Party singers will first pose for their group picture in the studio live room, and after choosing their group name, the CD artwork will be created ready to duplicate your performance on to and take home . Every singer gets there own CD.

Your exclusive Music Web Page 

Every experience and party purchase now includes a Music Web Page. At the end of the session, recordings from our artist for the day are uploaded and  can be securely accessed for streaming playback, or as downloadable MP3s - instantly. The perfect way to share with friends and family - wherever they may be! We'll also upload the high resolution picture we took in our photo studio - perfect for taking prints from. There's a hit counter too that shows how many visits your Music Web Page has had over it's indefinite time online!

Video DVD 

The party can be filmed in real-time via our studio cameras and put onto DVD for you to take home as a keepsake of the party. We do not edit this so it will be complete with all the out-takes, singing and producers comments. You can add the DVD option from the shopping basket before your checkout purchase - or you can ask the producer on the big day. 

Food and drink

You may bring cold party nibbles and/or birthday cake to enjoy near the end of the party while the producer duplicates the CDs. Squash, tea and coffee is provided free of charge. Warm food and take outs not permitted as our studio sound insulation can retain the delicious smells for days on end! Please hoover up any mess with Henry, our resident vacuum cleaner.

The Kitchen

Feel free to use glasses, cutlery etc from our kitchen area. Help yourselves to tea and coffee. Milk is provided in the fridge. All items used should be washed up, dried up and put away. Thank you!

Upgrade

A party can be upgraded online at any time before the party booking day by logging in under the Delivery & Booking tab on this page. If you are upgrading from a Party Platinum remember the time of the session then increases from 2 hours to 2½ hours. You may need to call us before upgrading on 0800 567 7197 and make sure we can still accommodate your party on your required date and time.

Backing tracks

Backing tracks

  Search X

 

We supply professional quality backing tracks for your singing experience or party session.

Whether it's a charting topping hit from the past, or a fresh tune currently being played on the Radio 1 playlist, we're sure to have the track. You can find karaoke versions of tracks (include the term 'karaoke') to rehearse with on iTunes, Spotify or YouTube.

 

 

FAQ

 

Where do I find the lyrics?

A good source for finding your chosen songs lyrics is azlyrics.com.

It's important to come to our studio armed with all the lyrics of your chosen songs printed on sheet paper (include copies for each singer participating). Up to 3 sheets of lyrics can be placed along side one another on our studio stands so please print on one side of the paper only to avoid noisy page turns that might be heard through your recordings!

 

Can I bring my own karaoke tracks to the studio?

You are more than welcome to bring your own backing tracks on CD, mobile device or USB memory stick. You can also buy your own tracks at various vendors, including Sunfly Karaoke & Ameritz.

 

Can we remove the vocals off an original recording?

Removing vocals from the artists original song can sometimes be done but the process badly effects the music and the quality ends up being sub-standard. We do not use or recommend this process in our recording experiences nor does it comply with copyright laws and other regulations set by MCPS.
