Armed with my voice, my beautiful Taylor guitar, my treasured trumpet bequeathed by my Uncle Len, a set of DJ headphones and 20 years’ experience on the professional stage, I am an intuitive and versatile performer, and I offer you a highly personable and comprehensive day of entertainment.From a welcoming ceremony-ambience to an intoxicating dance-fest, I will take you on a musical ride through the natural ebb and flow of the day. Constantly reading the energy of the room, I imbue the atmosphere with a rhythm, drawing on my vast repertoire via classic rock & pop covers, folk ballads, jazz standards, funk & soul grooves and, yes, even silence to ensure the mood is just right - never too much, never too little.My acoustic sets are the perfect blend of familiarity and easy-listening; my jazz sets are stylish & uplifting; my party sets are big & bold. To top the night off, I don my DJ headphones and mix tunes so ‘All The Single Ladies’ throw their handbags into the ring, grannies kick off their heels and legendary dad-dancing ensues.Naturally, any song not already on my playlist can be learnt for your ceremony and/or first dance, although a bit of notice helps. The panic button has been pressed on occasion and I’ve still, somewhat miraculously, managed to transform an unknown song from the night before to a worthy performance for that key moment on the wedding day. I warmly invite you, however, to avoid testing this ability where possible…The day's package includes:
It is a genuine honour for me to be asked to perform at such a significant point on a couple’s journey together and I go to great lengths to ensure my part in it is as pleasurable, as memorable and as stress-free for you as I can make it.I look forward to being there with you!
Alex, Thank you so much for all the hard work you put in to make our opening day so special.
We could not fault a thing. You were always on hand to answer any of our questions throughout the lead up to the event. The day itself went seamlessly, we didn't need to worry about anything as you and the guys had it all in hand. The versatility of what you did with the acoustic set, the rat pack set and the disco, went so well together.
Having worked alongside you at other events and the way the soul band gets people on the dance floor, we knew we had made the right choice to ask you to help.
It's always a pleasure to work with you and I look forward to many more!
