Services From Colin Powell
I am a solo singer & guitarist based in Doncaster. Generally I play Lincolnshire and Yorkshire but I do travel the length and breadth of the UK if the money is right. My material is gleaned from the late 50's Rock'N'Roll era to the 2000's. I have minimal equipment including lights and all have a current PAT test certificate. I am also a full member of Equity. Fully covered for liability. I work for reputable agencies and also for myself.
