About Craig

Singer/Guitarist playing the very best Rock n Roll, Pop, Rock, Blues, Soul and Country
Public liability insurance of £1 million
Verified profile

I have played in various bands over the last 30 years, I decided to go it alone and have worked hard to put together a great set covering the very best from the likes of The Beatles, Elvis, Johnny Cash, The Jam, Madness, Status Quo, Coldplay, R.E.M , Kings of Leon, Billy Idol, Culture Club, T Rex, Simple Minds, Elvis Costello, Adam and the Ants, David Bowie, Depeche Mode, Rolling Stones, Inxs, Queen, Eric Clapton, Thin Lizzy, Morrissey, KC and the sunshine band, ZZ Top, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Clash, Roxy Music, The black Keys, Otis Reading and many more.. Having taken a year off performing live due to relocating to England and working on my song writing. I’m now ready to get back out there and get people dancing. I have my own pa and lighting and use professionally recorded backing tracks so you get the big band sound without the big band price.

Very pleased that we booked Craig for our function. He arrived in plenty of time and was extremely flexible in adapting his set to accommodate our timings. His choice of music was spot on, sound and presentation was very professional and he certainly added to the success of the evening. We would be happy use Craig again.

Steve P, 5 years ago

This guy is awesome. We saw him play at the weekend and he didn’t play a bad song all night. Great music, great sound and a nice guy too. Go see him if you get a chance.

Murdos A, 5 years ago

After having Craig play at our bar, we had great feedback from our customers. Can’t wait to have him back
