The Other Reindeer Carolers are professional holiday entertainers in beautiful Dickensian costumes. We perform in quartets of two men and two women, singing familiar holiday tunes, both traditional and contemporary, in beautiful four-part harmony.
30-minute minimum engagement. And with enough notice, we can travel nearly anywhere between Santa Barbara, Orange County, and San Bernardino.
Several of our arrangements have a jazz, pop, or rock feel; we even employ vocal percussion on a few songs. Our repertoire is extremely diverse and includes non-religious and Hanukkah songs as well as traditional classic Christmas carols; we are happy to customize what we sing to suit your occasion!
Great performance and true professionals. Bravo!
Response from The Other Reindeer Carolers:
Thank you so much, Alex!!
The Other Reindeer Carolers are absolutely wonderful to work with. They are very personable, extremely talented and polished performers. They perform songs, as requested with grace. I highly recommend this special group!!!! ...and am very thankful that we selected them for our event.
What a fabulous group! They entertained with both kids and grownups in mind. They stayed true to the classics but threw out funny, comical asides between certain songs which gave it a modern feel too. In summation: they brought the house down!
They sang at our work holiday breakfast and it was wonderful! We shared a short video of them singing on our Instagram account, https://www.instagram.com/futuredontics/ if you want to check it out. Thank you!
I had 35 guest for my annual family and close friends Christmas Party -- they sang for two and a half hours -- the guest were absolutely elated, as I was -- Thank You "The Other Reindeer Carolers" see you again Dec 1918 -- Jack
I hired The Other Reindeer Carolers for a family Christmas party. They were prompt, dressed impeccably and their voices were angelic. They mingled with the guest, took request and was a hit at the party! I can't wait to use them again next year!!
An incredibly talented group of singers who put on an amazing show. They made our holiday party, and we will definitely be using them again in future years!
The carolers were a huge hit and we recieved tons of compliments having them at our Christmas party!
The group was great and made our event more special and true to the holiday spirit!
Nothing better than tradition strolling into your house, in costume & in tune with the best Christmas Songs ever written then sung, livem Acapella with their great background sounds. Tops off any party? No....... they top off YOUR party.
We hired "The Other Reindeer" Carolers to walk around our offices singing and everyone loved them! You could see peoples heads popping up over the cubicles to see them! Employees were still talking about them a few days later... they were the best idea we've had for the holidays. Everyone enjoyed them.
Response from The Other Reindeer Carolers:
Thank you so much, Ana!!
I was just winging it when I booked the Other Reindeer. I meant for them to just be background music for my networking event. But the group took it to the next level. At the start, they sang in the lobby to welcome the guests like I planned.Then, they went from table to table to the delight of the guests. Then, they had the guests sing along with them. Towards the end, they posed for pictures with raffle winners and other guests. They made for a very festive occasion where the guests were not mere spectators but active participants.
The Other Reindeer reached out to me because I was looking for a choir that could play at the end of our wedding ceremony. Colleen arranged the two songs we requested beautifully and the singers were professional and truly of top quality. The logistics were handled without any issues, and the entire crowd was so impressed with their work. I'd work with this versatile group again in a heartbeat.
The Other Reindeer did not disappoint! They were very professional, friendly, and fantastic! They knew so many different carols too.
Our family wanted an old fashioned caroling experience as part of our Christmas celebrations and boy did they deliver! They are complete professionals, friendly and captivating. Now we can't imagine another Christmas without them.
The Carolers had a really big repertoire of Christmas carols.
They are fantastic on all accounts! Gorgeous voices, terrific personalities, beautiful costumes and full of Christmas cheer. I feel so grateful to have picked them, and would do it a million times more! The best singers ever!
We had two ladies from the Other Reindeer sing at our
Christmas Teas at Paris In A Cup and our guests had the best time. They engaged the guests at their tables, sang beautifully and even the led the entire room in a song. Peggy and Kelly were a hit. Thank you
We hired The Other Reindeer Carolers for our Holiday Tree Lighting Celebration. They were all dressed in festive caroling attire, and sounded great. They provided an outstanding addition to our evening.
The singers were very professional. The costumes were authentic, vocals were pleasing and the arrangements were interesting and unique. They were all personally cordial. We were happy to have selected "The Other Reindeer"!
We hired The Other Reindeer Carolers for our holiday tree lighting event. They were all dressed in festive caroling attire, and sounded great. They sang for about an hour. Colleen was very friendly and accommodating, and I would recommend them to other planners.
Response from The Other Reindeer Carolers:
Thank you! That was a wonderful event and we were very happy to participate. :)
After searching the Internet for Holiday Entertainment I found "The Other Reindeer Carolers" and liked what I saw on their website. I sent an email to Colleen to check the rate and available date and booked them for our Annual Holiday Dinner Party. We were all so pleased with their Show and I (We) would recommend them to all of our friends and colleges. They are Professional, Punctual, and all four are beautiful singers. In addition, Colleen went above and beyond when she composed lyrics to a classic holiday tune using Iris Names and Species. It was such a Beautiful Evening,
Thank you again. The San Fernando Valley Iris Society
Response from The Other Reindeer Carolers:
Thank you for the feedback! You were very kind to us and we had a great time!
"You guys were just great. It blows my mind to see such talent in a local group like yours where each of you actually have day jobs of some kind but fortunately continue to pursue, in your cases, beautiful singing. I had several "thumbs up" from the group and you made the evening a success for all of us. Thanks very much. If the opportunity arises I will certainly recommend you to other party planners. "
What to Expect
The Other Reindeer provide a very elegant and yet interactive Christmas Caroling experience. We not only sing beautifully; we also interact with and delight audiences of all ages. We perform in quartets of two men and two women, singing from our extensive repertoire of familiar tunes, both traditional and contemporary,in beautiful four-part harmony. As a "younger" caroling company, we have a lot of fun while performing, and several of our arrangements have a jazz, pop, or rock feel; we even employ vocal percussion on a few songs.
We are happy to take requests and never have an concern with being videotaped or photographed - many people are excited to have their picture taken with costumed carolers!
In a noisy dining room environment, we might move from table to table, serenading each mini-audience with a carol or two; however, depending on the needs of the event, we are equally happy and capable of performing and very engaging and amusing stage performance set.
At a busy party, we might serenade your guests as they arrive, or we can also move from room to room if your event lends itself to that approach. Is Santa coming to your party? He needs entrance music!
Since 2009, The Other Reindeer Carolers have provided costumed carolers to the greater Los Angeles area. We are known for our excellent communication and reliability as well as having fantastic singers and fun, familiar music.
It helps if you can let us know as much about your event as you can in advance, like:
Will we be singing primarily for children, adults, or a mix?
Do you need or want us to sing secular songs, or Hanukkah songs?
Would you prefer that we wear modern clothes instead of costumes?
Are you looking for something a little different from traditional caroling?
Do you want singers to provide holiday ambiance, or are you looking for a featured performance?
There is nothing like lively, animated and friendly costumed carolers to make your holiday party an event nobody will forget. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
Additional Booking Notes
Generally, no amplification equipment is necessary for indoor engagements for audiences of up to 100 in size. For larger audiences, outdoor performances, or if you are expecting a boisterous crowd, we can bring a sound system for a reasonable fee; please inquire for details.
