I’ve always loved music and was bought up listening to albums that my Dad played in the lounge. Playing music and sharing it with people is something I really love do to. For a number of years (even since my teenage rock band days!) I have been playing at weddings, functions, bars and restaurants all around the UK. For me, I really love playing covers and changing how the original sounds or giving the song a new twist.
Being able to perform songs that connect with people is a beautiful thing. Weddings and significant occasions create such amazing memories and for me to be part of these events is very special. If you are getting married, organising a function, holding a party or would like some live acoustic music at an event you are arranging drop me or email or give me a call.

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding reception, so many guests have commented on how brilliant you were. You fit so well with atmosphere playing a variety of back ground music and some songs we could dance to- which is exactly what we wanted. We will definitely recommend you and have you back to play at future parties.

We wanted to make our 10th Wedding Anniversary a day to remember so we decided to book a live artist to entertain everybody. We booked Steven through PoptopUK Ltd on the internet this site was very informative as Steven played the the sort of music that we liked and Steven contacted us promptly to make arrangements for our special day. Steven arrived early to set up in plenty of time. The choice of songs were all well know and he was loved by everyone young and old. A big thank you for making our day extra special, well done Steven, we would recommend him to others.

Steven came over to Shrewsbury to play at our engagement party, he was really professional from the first interaction in organising the booking to when he played. He is a fantastic singer and acoustic player who put a wicked twist on some of peoples favourite songs - he played a array of genres and was brilliant at holding the room. Thank you again for coming over to celebrate with us and I can not recommend Steven highly enough for anybody's future bookings. We will be booking him again for our Wedding for sure
