About Bethany

I love to bring my handcrafted acoustic music to your event, and make it that little more special ❤️ Can’t wait to hear from you!

Verified profile

I have always enjoyed playing music from a very young age where I learnt the piano and then went on to learn the guitar. I enrolled into various musical productions and found a true love for singing and performing. I went on to learn the ukulele and continue to enjoy bringing my various instruments into my performing. I love playing songs people know so try to bring a variety of well known covers from the 60s onwards. With my own PA and lighting I will bring the show and you can sit back and enjoy it knowing that you and your guests will be thoroughly taken care of!

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I think the song choices - usually ones people love and know!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Lots of fun weddings, parties, corporate events.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

So many different people to be honest, tricky to pin point many, I grew up listening to lots of 90s and 00s pop.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I would say GoogleLondon as I’ve performed for their events a number of times with my duo Bethany Jane and Bro at their HQ. We have really enjoyed being called on to bringing the vibe for them!

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

I always try my 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 me know.

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

I can offer a DJ service for you event - please see my extra services to add this on. For background music I can play some music from an ipod between sets for free.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually need around 45 minutes. As soon as my PA is set up I can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!

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

I can try and make sure I do ones from my set list you would like played.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! I bring my own instrument and PA so it's all covered.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I am happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.

I am not quite sure where to start because Bethany is amazing!! Me and my (now) husband found Bethany online and we loved her so we got in touch and managed to see her locally before we confirmed booking and within a minute of her first song we were sold and knew we had to have her! From that night to the wedding day, Bethany was a dream to work with and so easy to contact and so helpful with timings etc and how things work! She sung and learnt our walking down the isle song which is so special to us! If I could give Bethany 10 stars I would as she is fabulous! If you are thinking of booking her, just do it! You will not regret it! Thank you for such amazing memories Bethany, Adam and Emma xx

Weekend went well and I’ll be very happy to have you playing at the pub again, All best! Hans
