About Us

Masquerade Duo specialise in providing cool upbeat renditions of popular hits, from recent chartbusters to classics from the ”70s and ’80s.  Their extensive, well-balanced repertoire means they are well suited to a wide range of venues, from pubs, bars and clubs to restaurants and hotels.  Bandmates Chris Wild (lead vocals and guitar) and Anthony Lye (stage piano and backing vocals) are dedicated to working with you to create the right ambience for your audience, and will happily take the time to master one or two (or even more!) requests should there be something special you require.

Chris Wild – Lead Vocals & Acoustic Guitar

Chris has been a vocalist for nearly 25 years. He grew up in Manchester where he initially became involved in blues, rock, soul & jazz. After completing vocal training at the Manchester School of Music, he taught vocal skills at the Band On The Wall’s “Access to Music” school. A highly varied career has seen him perform many different styles from choral work with the Halle Choir and Lesley Garrett to big soul shows with Edwin Star.

Anthony Lye – Stage Piano & Backing Vocals

Anthony began learning the piano aged eight, eventually obtaining Grade 8 Distinction ABRSM. He has considerable experience of performing with covers bands, playing at weddings and providing musical support for dramatic societies as well as composing his own material. He currently teaches the piano privately and provides regular solo performances throughout Greater Manchester in addition to his commitments with Masquerade.
