The Beatles, ABBA, Take That, The Killers, Ed Sheeran, Wham!, UB40, Bon Jovi and Many More!!!!......

I am a guitarist and singer who can perform at your venue or event either acoustically or with a high quality full band sound (but at a much more economical price!). I can provide disco music between sets to keep the party going. No venue / occasion is too small (or too big!) If it's a party, wedding or celebration I am happy to perform your favourite songs or the one for your first dance. I can also provide acoustic music for restaurants, wedding ceremonies or other occasions.

I offer a range of music from the 60's through to current chart hits. I have over 300 songs to choose from including artists such as (deep breath!) Take That, U2, Robbie Williams, ABBA, Bryan Adams, Keane, Guns 'n' Roses, The Rolling Stones, Scissor Sistors, Jackson 5, Kings of Leon, Supergrass, Duran Duran, Lenny Kravitz, Snow Patrol, Razorlight, The Stone Roses, Green Day, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Adam and the Ants, Katrina and the waves, Madness, Fleetwood Mac, Kula Shaker, Oasis, Blur, The Beatles, Wham!, The Monkees, Phil Collins, The Eagles, The Spice Girls, Human League,etc.

"I found James while perusing for a live musician for a surprise 70th birthday party we were holding for our mum. From start to finish, James was communicative and kept me informed every step of the way. We welcomed mum in while James played a small DJ set, then he sang live. I was blown away by his talent and the hypnotic smoothness of his voice. He played a further set after a break and really got the crowd up and dancing. All in all, a highly talented musician and I commend anyone who can get to the high pitches of the Spice Girls :-)
We had some of the guests round for breakfast for the following morning and they too were completely blown away by his talent.
Thank you so much James, you are one of a kind and we will definitely be calling on you again! You made everyone’s night, but most importantly, you made my mum’s night."

"""Hi James, I wanted to say thanks again. Your performance last Saturday night at Richmond Golf Club was exactly what was required. We were so glad we found your ad! Your disco lights really jazzed up the room and made it magical, the music was spot on. It was a really perfect mix. I only wish more people had decided to start dancing earlier! Thank you!"" - Mrs Galliers. 21st Birthday Party"

"It was great having James perform at my party. It was a great mix of background music for the first set followed by some cracking tunes in the second set whish really got the party going. It was certainly a talking point of the evening, all of which was about how good James was and how it was great to have him there. James really made the party go well and was an integral part of a great evening."" (40th Birthday Party, Feb 2017)"

James was absolutely perfect for our event. We asked him to provide background music during a party and everyone how commented on how good he was. he added to the party without dominating it, which is exactly what we asked for. He was punctual and very professional and had a great set list which he tailored to our requests. I would definitely use him again for a function and would highly recommend him.
