About Alex Bayross

One man band using vocals, guitar, piano & percussion through a looper, guaranteed to get them singing, dancing, drinking & and laughing!
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Now with FULLY portable setup - gigs in fields welcome! My main instrument is the loop station - building live loops and samples on the spot to build tracks before your eyes. Sometimes I'll add guitar, piano, cajon, tambourine or kazoo, other times it will all come from my mouth. Take a look at my videos to get a real idea of what I do! My genres span house, hip hop, pop and jazz, but my personal favourite to create is electro-swing. Perfect for parties, bars, clubs and lively pubs, requests welcome! I also have several sets of acoustic chill with guitar and piano, slowed down 80s and classic jazz standards are my favourite. These are more suited to afternoon gigs, background music and 'busking' spots. I'm based in Gloucester.

Alex is a very nice guy who came to set up on time and worked around our requirements and another artist. He is very clever and many people said how good he was at what he did. From my own personal perspective I hardly noticed he was there because I was so engrossed in talking to many separate groups of old friends. If he'd not been competent I think I would have noticed. His music was maybe not my bag but that is irrelevant for a review like this. My sons and their friends danced to his music near the end. If I had one comment it's that he was a bit loud for the situation but I could easily have asked him to turn the volume down and I'm sure he would have. Thank you Alex.

This guy is just wrapping up in the Brickroom Worcester and we've had the best night! Just came in for a drink and ended up staying for the whole set! Could recommend enough! #shortcakeman
