Brilliant. Came in at short notice, saved the day & blew us all away! Such a talented guy. Highly recommended.
Craig Boden was great from start to finish. Great song choice, great active performance, and even better voice. Have re-booked & will definitely recommend him to everyone i know. Brilliant.

"Craig gave a great performance at our pub. Unbelievable voice, sang for literally hours & had everyone up & dancing throughout. Sang lots of rock n roll, which our customers loved. Already booked Craig for 2 more dates this year. One of the best I've seen, definitely worth the money.
5 stars. 10 out of 10."

Great performer, amazing voice, sang some great songs for well over 3 hours. Everyone loved him & we've booked Craig again for another function we have coming up in April. Would definitely recommend him to anyone.
What kind of events do you usually serve?
Pubs, clubs, weddings, birthdays, corporate events, any other functions
Who are your previous clients?
I have played most venues up & down the east coast (Scarborough, SKegness, Whitby etc) before I moved to Chesterfield, where I am now based.
How long do you play for?
I play for any length of time, up to around 3 & a half hours
Do you have your own PA and lighting?
I have all my own equipment, lighting and transport
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
All my equipment is pat tested
How much space do you require?
Not much! I have squeezed myself into some very tiny venues in the past
My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
Maybe. I have many many songs in my list (over 1,00 & adding regularly).
How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
I can either play straight through with no break, or I can split the show into 2 sets, with a small 20 min break in between. Negotiable.
I perform for 3 hours + (with no breaks unless requested) with a variety of tracks (see above) building into a great rock n ' roll/party tunes crescendo! Lots of music, very little chat, just pure entertainment & fun! You won't find anyone else who performs as many songs per performance (with no breaks) for such a low fee. I believe in giving value for money & I work hard for you to ensure you get your money's worth! Every venue I have played have been impressed with my voice & song choice, & I can give you people/landlords etc to contact if you would like any reviews/references.
The set and songs performed can be catered for your tastes/event, and I also perform a beautiful set of pure ballads/love songs for weddings/anniversary's. I can also play sets suitable for nursing or retirement homes etc.
