Thomas could not be faulted. His musical abilities were superb and all my guests commented on his performance and choice of music. He is also a charming character and I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who wants a very professional artist for a special occasion.

"Thank you so much for yesterday. You really made such an impact and the comments from all the guests about your music were lovely.
Karel De Pauw• July 1, 2017
We would like to express our wholehearted thanks to you for providing the perfect musical backdrop to our wedding reception. Many of the guests commented on how much they enjoyed your performance. We were impressed with your professionalism and flexibility in helping us to choose the repertoire. We hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did.

We had Tomas play at our wedding in April 2017. He was very helpful in suggesting songs, as well as being willing to learn specific pieces which we had requested. We and our guests really enjoyed the performance, which was of a very high standard. We were also grateful for his flexibility when the timings of the performance were different from expected. We would highly recommend Tomas to anyone looking for a musical performance at their event

"I thought you were brilliant - thank you so much for being part of our day. I was a bit overwhelmed in the ceremony, but I did make a point of listening to the music and it sounded lovely. I also asked many of the guests and they thought your playing was beautiful.
Not only was your music lovely, but you were really pleasant to work with, and really worked to customize our set list."

Tomas contacted me very promptly and introduced himself. Closer to the day, Tomas sent me his playlist but kindly played 2 songs that weren’t on there. One he knew and one he kindly learnt for us.
On the day, Tomas played beautifully for both the ceremony and drinks reception.
Tomas kept me well informed leading up to the day so that we were both clear about what should happen.
I would gladly recommend anyone who would like and enjoys guitar music at its best!
Sarah & Lee
- How long do you play for?A typical performance is two forty-five minute set lists, with a break of around ten to fifteen minutes in between these. The longest I will play for on a gig is three forty-five minute sets.
- Do you have your own PA and lighting?I have my own PA but not lighting.
- Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?Yes and yes. I am member of the Musician's Union who cover me for £10m and also I keep all my electrical equipment in a sound working order.
- How much space do you require?I require a space of a minimum two by two meters in size. I also need to be within ten meters of a plug socket or else you will need to provide some extra extension leads.
- My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?Provided it can be suitably arranged for solo guitar, then yes! If you give me more than a month's notice, there is an additional fee of £15 per tune for me to learn it, and with less than a month, it's £30. Please note that it's very unlikely I will do requests on the day if they haven't been agreed upon beforehand.
- How many breaks do you take? How long are they?I take a break after every forty-five minute set. A break will not last longer than fifteen minutes.
- Do you sing?Very much not!
- Can you play outdoors?Yes, but weather permitting and only if the infrastructure is in place that I can power my PA system so that my guitar is audible.
- Will a solo guitar be loud enough?Yes it will, as I use a microphone and a PA speaker to project the sound and I have a great deal of control from a digital perspective on how to get the best sound for the best venue.
- Do you play to backing track?No, all performances are always fully live.
- Do I, the client, need to provide anything for you?I require either a chair without arms or a stool to sit on. I also require a safe area to park and place to store my instrument case and valuables whilst I am performing.
