I'm a singer & guitarist living in the beautiful New Forest playing at parties, weddings, events, restaurants and venues in the surrounding area.
I perform live (no backing tracks) and put my own stamp on a huge range of over 400 songs by well over 100 artists from the 1950's onward (more being added all the time).
I can play at your party, wedding or event and tailor a set to exactly how you like it. My live sets can be quiet and background to full upbeat dance mode and anything in between. If you have a special song, I can learn it for your event. I can also provide lighting, interval/background music and use of my equipment for speeches/announcements.
I am a member of AMPband (Alliance of Musicians & Performers), have full Public Liability Insurance (£10 million) and my equipment is PAT tested. Any certificates can be provided to you or to your venue.
I use BOSE, Fishman and Roland sound systems, Shure microphones and play Yamaha, Fender and Gretsch guitars.

I feel privileged to be able to play for elderly people in care and have an established clientele of over 50 Care Homes that I provide entertainment for in the nearby Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire counties.
Usually playing in the mornings or afternoons for an hour, I fit in with the plans of the Care Home Activities Leaders and Co-ordinators for their residents in care.
Music evokes wonderful feelings and memories and can, for a while, help break down the barriers of even severe cases of dementia as people clap, dance and sing along with the tunes.
I play acoustic guitar and sing songs from the 1950's and 1960's along with a few well-chosen older tunes (see selection of Care Home Songs). I'm always adding "new" songs (to keep me on my toes!). I have a compact BOSE amplifier and speaker system for these sessions and can tailor the volume, sound and song choice to suit.
