  • Please, describe your act or business in on sentence:

    Professional and experienced wedding and events musician.

  • What are the highlights of your career?

    The feeling of satisfaction when I see that the music I provided has thrilled the audience, or the bride and groom and kept the guests entertained throughout the day.

  • What is your competitive advantage (special features)?

    I've found a lot of guitarists can be a little bit intrusive with their playing style. I pride myself on providing a laidback but still happy vibe, to add the perfect atmosphere to weddings and restaurants, without being too loud to talk over. I do also offer a party style set, or a duo set if you're looking for something a little more party like! Please enquire about this.

  • What kind of events do you usually serve?

    Weddings, restaurants, bars, birthday parties, the list is endless.

  • Who are your previous clients?

    In excess of 100 married couples and wedding venues, as well as various chains around the UK (Village Hotel, Slug and Lettuce, Potting Shed, etc.)

  • How can event planners pay for your services?

    My preferred payment method is a simple bank transfer, although cash or cheque can also be arranged.

  • How long do you play for?

    This completely depends on the package I am booked for. The most standard set is around 90 minutes which is spread over 2 hours during your event or the champagne reception if it's a wedding. I also do ceremonies, mealtime, and sometimes start off the evening do. If I'm doing my all day Diamond wedding package, I could be there for the full day doing various sets where necessary.

  • Do you have your own PA and lighting?

    I have various PA systems to select the right one for the event/size of room, as well as a selection of lighting if needed.

  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?

    Yes. My public liability is renewed yearly at £10million and my equipment is PAT tested before their current checks expire.

  • How much space do you require?

    I can fit my setup into some pretty small spaces. Space has never been an issue. At an estimate, 2x2 metres would be about right.

  • My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?

    With certain packages, I will learn a song request as part of the package. If you choose a package that doesn't include a song request, I'm happy to learn songs for a small additional fee, please see my Instant Quote packages for more details.

  • How many breaks do you take? How long are they?

    Again, this would depend on the package chosen, but usually, I will take around a 15-30 minute break in the middle of my 90 minute set.
