About Alex

Alex Clarke presents a solo singer/guitarist show with a full band sound and light experience playing rock, pop, blues, soul and party music
Public liability insurance of £10 million

If you are looking for new and different entertainment for your pub, club, venue or function, Alex Clarke presents a full-on rocking solo singer/guitarist show based near Glasgow with a full band sound and light experience playing rock, pop, blues, soul and party music from the 60's to now. I also do tributes to some of the most iconic and influential artists of all time - Pink Floyd, Electric Light Orchestra and Paul Weller / The Jam. My tributes bring the music and atmosphere of these artist's legendary live performances to more intimate venues. With a set amassed from all of the artists's history, these live shows are not to be missed! I am also available for acoustic performances where a more subtle, intimate atmosphere is required

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I can be flexible with notice, if you contact me as soon as you can I can work with you to minimise any issues and ensure your night goes off without any hitches

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

This is no problem and can be tailored to the evening

How much time do you need to set up?

Usually a minimum of 1 hour prior to the commencement of the evening but I can work with you if there are potential issues with this

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

The setlist can be discussed if there are any favourites you would like. If I am unable to play them myself these can be played as part of the DJ sets

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, where possible I visit the venue beforehand to check for any potential issues and to gauge what system and setup will work best

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If you have a special song that you would like performed by me this can be discussed. I like to think have a pretty wide range!
