Marc Gallagher

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. I can now play 10 instruments (Guitar, Bass and Ukulele being my strongest), and with a shameless musical upbringing of Queen and NOW CD's, I swiftly started writing mostly Pop songs, spanning a variety of topics and emotions. As a cover artist I pride myself in my versatility. Whether the crowd want to dance on tables to pub-rock, laugh with nostalgic fondness over underrated hits of their childhood, or absorb gentle background ambiance, I adapt my set to whatever the gig demands. With over 10 hours of material, I guarantee something for any kind of event or genre. Gigging is a word somewhat synonymous with me, due to an extensive catalogue of previous performances, especially in 2016. A crusade of playing every single day for 3 months saw me playing gigs and festivals in Crewe, Nantwich, Live...

What event planners say about our suppliers


We just all loved you at my party and said that it would be great to have you again x


Hi Jess a huge thank you to you and your band for last night - As always it was fantastic and the feedback from the guests was that it was a wonderful night. It was lovely to see you again and hopefully will be in touch again soon. Have a lovely summer and will be in touch soon


James was excellent from start to finish! He was great with the initial organising of the playlist and in particular our first dance. He managed to combine an acoustic version with a dance track and it worked perfectly on the night getting everyone going and partying from the start! That will live long in my memory. He was also fantastic on the piano during our drinks reception and the wedding breakfast, him playing the music from Star Wars was a personal highlight - he really can play anything! James is very responsive to exactly what you want for your wedding playlist. He is more than happy to play what you want or mix it up if required. All our guests were commenting on how awesome the music we had chosen was, but it was down to James dropping the tunes that had everyone having such a good time! The evening could not have been any better.
