Singing telegrams have been around since the 1930s and peaked in popularity during the 80s (along with stripograms). In case you’ve never heard of them, they involve an artist (usually dressed up in costume) singing a song or a message to a surprised recipient. Another way of thinking of them is like a present in musical form. They were once a popular way to make someone’s day, so more than 30 years later, we have to wonder whether the Singing Telegram is still a thing. 

And the answer? Yes, they are!

Singing Telegrams: Bringing The Music To You

While Atomic Jukeboxes is also all about bringing the music to you, singing telegrams do it in a slightly different way. And this may be why they still exist: because they are different.

Popular at weddings, corporate events, birthdays and anniversaries, a singing telegram will bring something completely unique to your next event. Most singing telegram companies will have a list of songs and messages you can choose from or you can write your own message or request the artist learn a specific song. Some companies will even compose an exclusive song for the recipient. 

The artist performing the song or message will often be in character dress and you can usually choose from a range of add-ons including:

  • Cake with candles
  • Balloons
  • Soft toys
  • Gifts
