Starting out working out the Crazy Frog theme song on piano at the age of 12, I swiftly expanded my musical repertoire over a handful of years.

Gigging is a word somewhat synonymous with me, due to an extensive catalogue of previous performances, especially in 2016.

What event planners say about our suppliers


We book Carl to play at our Christmas party each year and it is without doubt a great evening every time. The guys love giving him requests and he plays them all! He makes Greenday tracks sound like they were written for piano. Very much recommend him. Chris Element Tree Care


I admire anyone who plays the sax as it is such a special talent. Joe from saxalone arrived early to set up and played for the full hour. Joe was really good and my guests enjoyed his performance. I do feel that we should be given the option to pick what songs we want playing and not for Joe to put together his song list as it's personal preference. Also Joe needed to play from his music sheet which shows he is not as experienced as others but again he played the music well.


Craig did an amazing job on our big day, turned up nice and early. He was very accomadating for our requirements. Every guest we've spoken to have praised him saying he was fantastic. My one word of advice for anyone considering to hire Craig, the videos don't fully demostrate his voice properly, and it's not just the fact he's got a good voice, he entertained all our guests from the youngest to the eldest. Highly recommended, many thanks for a great night
