About Alex

Singer Guitarist Guaranteed To Wow Your Guests and Make Your Event Memorable!
Singing guitarist
Weybridge
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Hey! I'm Alex! Academy of Contemporary Music Graduate, multi instrumentalist and son of an opera singer (fun fact!). I have over 20 years experience playing and performing music to people across the U.K. I've been performing all of my life. I first started playing music at 5 years old having watched my Mum perform globally for some of the most prestigious Operatic companies in the world. I've been surrounded by music my entire life and have performed in bands since I was 12 years old. I bring an eclectic mix of styles to any occasion, from stripped back sing-a-longs of your favourite music, through to high-energy anthems. I thrive off of audiences and people enjoying themselves, and my goal is always to make sure people are smiling, laughing and having a great time they'll remember! I know how important memorable performances can be to an occasion. I pride myself on top-tier professionalism, attention to detail and ultimately making sure you are entirely satisfied with your event. My job is only ever done when you're happy, not just when the music stops! I play regular live solo acoustic guitar/vocal performances and solo loop performances across London, Surrey and the South East - bringing an eclectic mix of Pop, Classics, Rock, Soul and general “good vibe” sounds to bars, venues, parties and events. I also play in bands, am a qualified sound engineer and accomplished public speaker - so you know you'll be in safe hands sonically and your guests will always feel a part of the party. Aside from my solo performances - I can be available in duo, trio or full-band capacity (so just ask if you'd like something a bit louder!). And I work with some of the U.Ks most sought after musicians. So, I'm often found rocking out at weddings, music venues and events across the UK. I can't wait to hear from you - I'm always available for questions, requests or queries. Thanks!

Customer questions

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

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know

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

Yes, I’ll play background music during setup, in breaks and when I’m packing down if needed. I can also DJ for an additional cost, so make sure you let me know!

How much time do you need to set up?

It does depend on the venue, location from my vehicle and the space provided - however, on average it takes me around 15-20minutes. I’ll always endeavour to set up in advance to make sure it’s ready to go and I’m out of the way if guests!

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

Of course! I love mixing things up and always happy to change a set list or take requests!

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely. I bring my own instrument to play (and back ups) as well as equipment so everything runs smoothly

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If there isnt the songs you love in the Setlist it’s often the case I’ll know it - so just ask! If not, and there’s time to learn it I’ll get it done - there is a small fee of £30 to account for rehearsal times etc
