About Chris

'Whether you require smooth ballads, uptempto party starters, rock and roll classics or all three plus more Chris has got you covered!'
Chris Cumberbatch's profile picture
Public liability insurance of £1 million

I started off my musical journey like everyone else as a fan! My passion for singing had me performing as a solo act and then in various bands in my younger years. I picked up the guitar while performing with a folky/rocky/hip hoppy band in my early twenties and have never looked back. Performing as a solo act, armed with my guitar and loop pedal in and around London for over 10 years has given me the experience to cater for any crowd. I play an eclectic mix of cover songs and am as comfortable with an uptempo track as with any smooth ballad.

We wanted a guitarist/singer to provide some atmosphere at our wedding reception while drinks were served. Chris was recommended by a friend and was one of the many highlights of our special day. Very friendly and professional.

We booked Chris to perform at our wedding reception. He played a chilled out mix as guests arrived and then a more up tempo set after dinner, just before the DJ started. Great selection of songs, would definitely recommend!
