Finding the right musician, who plays the songs which will create the uplifting atmosphere you desire, can prove very difficult. I have been performing across the Midlands for Residential Care Homes, publicans, charity events, weddings & family celebrations etc for over five years. In that time I have accrued a lot of experience in being able to play the right music for the moment. I have added numerous songs to my repertoire from different genres which will ensure a memorable performance.
