Services From Chris Tavener in Manchester
My name's Chris, I'm a singer-guitarist from Northwich in Cheshire. I've been performing right across the UK as a professional musician for many years now. I perform popular songs from The Beatles, Elvis Presley, David Bowie, George Ezra, Ed Sheeran, Arctic Monkeys and many many others...
There's always something for every generation!
I pride my performances on creating a lively and energetic atmosphere to get an evening going.
My mission has always been to put a smile on people's faces.
Whether it's a wedding, a christening, a birthday, an opening ceremony – I've done it all and I'd be more than happy to accommodate the requirements of any event.
If there's any way I can make your event extra special, you have only to ask!
My journey in music has taken me across Europe and has seen me working and performing with famous names including Sir Ian McKellen, Mark Radcliffe, Peter Hook (Joy Division) and Super Hans.

We all enjoyed Chris' performance. He managed to gauge the audience's musical preferences very quickly.

We had a great time at the BBQ despite the gloomy weather - It was a very hectic afternoon , I didn’t have to worry at all about Chris, he just quietly set his stall out . He played his two sessions as arranged - my guests were exceedingly impressed - he read his audience well with his choice of songs . The question I was continually being asked is ‘Where did you find Chris? A fun filled day - special
memories the sing along 🎶 sing 🎤& dancing .
Thank you Chris 🌟🌟

Chris absolutely made my Hen Party go with a swing. I had approximately 20 family, friends and neighbours in my home and everyone remarked at how good his guitar playing was plus he had a great personality
