Hi my name’s Tom Favell.

I'm a self contained acoustic guitar vocalist and I've made a living as a performing musician for over ten years.

I can provide you with a night of uptempo and well known songs to get the whole dancefloor grooving, or instead I can also provide a chilled lounge set for the perfect ambience of your event.

I’m originally from Leicester but I’ve lived in Greater Manchester since 2007 when I moved up north to study music at Salford University. Since then I’ve been very active in the Manchester music scene, playing in a variety of function bands, originals bands and acoustic ensembles.

In the summers of 2015 and 2019 I spent several months as the resident guitar vocalist at Caldera Palace, a 5* Thomson resort in Crete. This was a big learning curve for me as it allowed me to improve my playing, having to perform up to four sets a night, six nights a week to a widely varied audience.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Tom was great from start to finish. Great communication. Everyone loved the music. We had not decided on a first Dance till the night and he was able to accommodate the request with no issues. Thank you Tom. We will recommend and a number of people already asked how to book you ☺️

Tom was amazing and he kept in touch right the way up to the event. He is very talented and everyone loved the music, especially the Oasis songs!! He played all the requests we had and he really did make the night. Thank you so much Tom, everyone commented on how much they loved the music and how good you were. I wouldn’t hesitate to book Tom again and recommend him to anyone looking for a singer and guitarist! My partner said when he was singing along to Oasis “So Sally can wait” it was the best night of his life! Thank you.
