About

Hi, i'm George - thanks for viewing my profile!

I am a professional acoustic guitarist and vocalist with a wealth of experience in the live performance industry. From rock and pop classics to jazz and soul standards (and everything in between), I can provide your event with over 2 hours worth of high quality live acoustic music. My laid back, chilled out acoustic repertoire is the perfect finishing touch for weddings, functions and events. Have a look at my sample repertoire below to get a taster of what I can play for you!

I have a BMus Honours Degree in Popular Music Performance from the world-renown Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in London and have been performing live in bands, duos, trios and of course solo for over 15 years. You can catch me most of the time performing in my professional function band 'Happy Hour' on guitar and vocals, as well as teaching my wide range of guitar students in the Essex area.

I like to work with my clients to ensure their exact wishes are met, so requests in advance are always welcome (if they're not already on my vast repertoire, that is!). I have a neat, compact professional PA system as part of my high-quality live set up, ensuring I always sound good wherever I go.

Booking for your wedding? Here's what I can do for you on your special day!

CEREMONY

If you're looking for high-quality live performances of special songs during your wedding ceremony, look no further! I can take requests, learn and perform during all parts of the wedding ceremony - this includes guest entry, aisle walk, signing of register and guest exit.

Live music is wonderful addition to a marriage ceremony, giving you and your guests memories for a life time. Your wedding ceremony is one of the most important and special moments of your life, so why not enhance it with the personalised live performance of the songs closest to your heart?

DRINKS RECEPTION

Treat yourself and your guests to some relaxed acoustic renditions of your favourite songs, whilst you chat and enjoy your bubbles and canapes! The sound of live singing and acoustic guitar is the perfect addition to the celebratory atmosphere of a post-ceremony drinks reception. I can perform up to 2 hours worth of live music in the background and can perform inside and outside thanks to my professional PA set up. I always adapt my repertoire to whoever's in front of me, ensuring there's something for everyone to enjoy. Got a request? Let me know in advance and i'll play it! Got a request live on the spot?! Come and let me know, I bet I know it!

WEDDING BREAKFAST

Whilst you and your guests enjoy your meal, I can perform a relaxing set of live acoustic music to add to the special atmosphere of your wedding breakfast. My gentle and relaxed arrangements of popular music songs can provide a unique touch for such a special part of the day. My professional set up is neat and compact, and can be adapted to suit all room sizes and shapes.

FIRST DANCE

Fancy having your first dance request performed live? I have been performing first dances live for over 15 years and I can provide a beautiful rendition of your most favourite song to kick start your evening!

George made sure that our special day was 10/10

We can’t recommend George enough! We wish we could go back and relive his songs again. He made sure he was thoroughly prepared in the build up to the big day and he created the perfect atmosphere for our guests. Thank you for making our day, one that we will remember forever.
