Gordon Robertson is one of Scotland's finest and most versatile vocalists, with over 7 years experience as a performer at corporate events, weddings, parties, music venues, festivals and tribute nights. He is in high demand throughout the UK, having played over 70 gigs in the last 12 months, and he always impresses with his ability to entertain and involve an audience from the outset, regardless of the event or style of music.
His first main act is as a vocalist playing acoustic guitar, and performing a selection of hits and floor-fillers from the 50s right through to the present day chart toppers. This includes artists like Johnny Cash, The Beatles, Bryan Ferry, Stereophonics, The Killers, Oasis, Ed Sheeran, Kodaline, Bruno Mars, Stevie Wonder and many more. Some of these can also be accompanied by professional quality backing tracks to fill out the sound spectrum where appropriate, but the acoustic show is equally entertaining on it's own. This makes it a very adaptable show, to f...

"Thank you for performing at my husbands 60th party Gordon. Your assortment of music was greatly appreciated by our friends and family with some even saying that your voice sounded just like a recording. We had a mixed group of ages and your style of music suited all and got them dancing.
Would recommend and would certainly hire you again."

Nothing gives us more pleasure than to write this review since you played such a major part in ensuring that the word everyone kept saying both on and after the day was ‘Perfect’. I couldn’t get from one end of the room to the other without being questioned as to where we found you! Your voice, the choice of playlist the quality of sound and balance of guitar and backing track were all spot on. Amanda and I were still talking about the success of the evening in particular as we sat quaffing Rioj...

Gordon performed at our Business Insider SME Awards and was fab! An excellent singer who was completely professional and approachable. Gordon performed throughout our drinks reception and then dinner and was extremely well received by all of our guests.

Gordon Robertson is a real professional. He helped make my daughter's wedding day special at Glenskirlie Castle. Nothing was a bother and he is an amazing singer and a pleasure to deal with. What a treat for all our guests.
- Who are your previous clients?Hamilton and Inches Jewellers, Scotbuild, SECC, Trump International Golf Links, The Ferry Glasgow, King Tut's Wah Wah Hut, The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Glasgow City Halls, Trinity Mirror PLC, Scottish SME Awards, Made in Scotland Awards, Glasgow Science Centre, Radisson Blu Hotel, Village Hotels.
- Is it possible to customise your performance and have more than one type or a bit of everything? (eg. a set of Bublé, a set of floor fillers and a set of acoustic songs)Absolutely! More than happy to do this and it normally goes down great! I'm happy to customise my performances entirely to your event.
- How many breaks do you take? How long are they?Normally in a 3x45m set performance I will take two short 15/20 minute breaks, during which I'll always play some music of a similar genre through my system, or alternatively, some clients prefer to put on their own playlists through my system which is no problem!
- My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?I am happy to make every effort to learn any requests you might have (time and genre allowing!). I don't recommend asking to choose your own set list from scratch as first of all, it's too much learning for me to do when I'm out performing at other events every week, but secondly, my act is well rehearsed, and I am very experienced at choosing a set-list which will have the right 'up and down' moments for the audience to enjoy dancing/singing along to. First dances/Ceremony requests for weddings are of course always learned.
- How much space do you require?Normally between 2 and 3 square meters, but I don't take up very much space. Smallest space I have played in was probably under 1 square meter!
- Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?Yes!
- Do you have your own PA and lighting?Yes - 3 systems which will cater from small events to a full festival rig. Appropriate lighting and PA provided at no extra cost for every event.
- How long do you play for?Up to 3x45 minute sets. Options include 1/2x45m sets, 2x1 hour sets, and many others. Fully customisable to requirements of clients.
- What kind of events do you usually serve?Weddings, Private Parties, Corporate Events, Live Music Venues, Clubs, Restaurants and Bars, Tribute Nights, Hotels.
