To be honest, we are really disappointed. It seemed the artist just wanted to get in and out. The music was not spread into the later evening as agreed. It was all done within 2 hours of starting and when he was done he just unplugged our playlist from his speaker and left without helping connect to the venue speakers. It was a shame because most people were outside in the sun so no one really heard the music. It seemed he didn’t want to be there because he was on his own. I wouldn’t book again. Really disappointed.

Thanks Emily! It was a pleasure playing for you and your guests. I especially enjoyed everyone singing a long at the end! Hope you had a great time!

Christian was absolutely phenomenal. It was a very late booking and he committed on the spot. Beyond his excellent repertoire I was keen for him to learn a few songs that my friend, whose party it was, had written. He couldn’t have been more supportive and helpful and set about learning the songs. On the night he did incredible renditions of my friend’s songs and my friend was utterly blown away. Christian is a fantastic guitarist with great vocals. Overall superb and I would thoroughly recommend him.

Christian was very helpful, accepted the booking very last minute. Amazing voice, very fluid and adapts to different audiences and tries his best to accommodate any requests. 100% recommend - so much so he has two more bookings from his performance at my birthday. Book Christian you won’t be disappointed!

Christian has a love for music that really shines through. His zest is truly infectious, and within a couple of songs, he had the whole place singing along. Great voice, strong guitar playing - I highly recommend.

Customer questions

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

No problem. I appreciate that sometimes I have 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?

Yes. No charge if you would like music played between sets. If you would like a DJ service for after the performance, then I charge an additional £100 for this.

How much time do you need to set up?

I will drive at least 1 hour before I play, but set up takes no longer than 10-15 minutes as there is minimal equipment. If you have a PA system, I may come earlier, just to ensure I know that the equipment functions properly.

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

My set lists are designed after countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, I'm definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event on a Skype call.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes! I do not have a PA system, but I have a sophisticated amplifier which is is more than suitable for guitar and vocals.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance that I may 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.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The passion and soul I put into every song. Natural ability to engage audiences. Ability to learn songs very quickly.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Various weddings, Fiddlers Elbow (London and Brighton), The Star (Guildford), The Boileroom (Guildford), Wintershall Festival, Reading Festival.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?
