About Calum

Calum Duell's profile picture
Public liability insurance of £10 million

I am a 28-year-old musician and have been performing live shows all over the country at different events, weddings, pubs, festivals, christenings, etc... You name it I've probably done it and I always love to make a lasting impression on an audience. I can adjust from being background music and setting a nice atmosphere over an evening to being centre stage and getting everyone singing and dancing. My dad is a musician too so naturally I've always been involved in music which is why it's such a deep passion of mine. I've performed in excess of 1000 shows and have played for the likes of Led Zeppelin frontman 'Robert Plant' as well as the one and only 'Chesney Hawkes' and multiple others. I like to personalise shows as much as possible by seeing if there are any specific requests for an evening and I'll try my best to accommodate. Rest assured, if you book me for your entertainment then I'll put a personalised guarantee on having a great night.

We had a superb evening listening and dancing to Calums music at my husbands birthday party! Absolutely fantastic, everyone enjoyed themselves thoroughly and specifically wanted to say how much they loved the entertainment, and what a refreshing change to hear novel takes on the classic dance songs, he is such a skillful and accompished musician. Calum acted as our DJ too and selected the right music to match the mood and got everyone dancing. I would definitely recommend Calum for your party, and if there is an occasion in the future, would not hesitate to engage Calum again
