The Beatles, ABBA, Take That, George Michael (Tribute Act also available), The Killers, Ed Sheeran, Wham!, UB40, etc!......

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.

George Michael 

You will hear anthems such as Wake me up before you go go, Faith, Amazing, I'm Your Man, Freedom 90, Careless Whisper, Club Tropicana, Flawless (Go to the City) and many more!

James has spent time studying the performances of Wham! and George Michael to faithfully reproduce a show that both entertains and creates a sense of celebration. James says "The music of George Michael has been and will remain an integral part of pop history, from the early days of Wham!'s incredible pop music through to the magic of George's solo career. Being able to perform the songs of George Michael and Wham! is an honour and I hope clients enjoy hearing these songs as much as I enjoy performing them."

With over 15 years of professional experience performing at Weddings, Parties, Venues and Corporate Events all over the UK and internationally, James is able to ensure your event is a resounding success!

Synonymous with instantly recognisable global hits and a career spanning over three decades with Wham! and as a solo artist, George Michael is regarded as one of the finest song writers of his generation. 

James Farrant's tribute to George Michael is your chance to relive the magic of George and his timeless music. In a tribute show complete with costumes and theatrics together with professional sound and lighting, James will transport you back to the heydays of Wham! and George's solo career.

James performed on my wife's 40th and it was an amazing performance. Every bit of music he played or sung was melodious and enjoyable.

He was courteous and adaptable for the requests of songs despite the event was running bit late

I will definitely recommend him and consider him for my next celebration

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.

"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."
