Verified profile

Hello! My name is Guy and I have been a working musician for over 15 years, so I am highly experienced and very professional. Last year saw me play over 100 gigs around the UK at many events, weddings, venues & parties. My CV also includes repeat performances at festivals such as Benicassim, Glastonbury, Kendall Calling, & Hop Farm, as well as performing all over Europe and in the U.S. I work hard to tailor any performance specifically for the type of event that I’m playing at, to make sure I choose the songs to project the right vibe and tone to best complement the client’s desired effect. To be either upbeat, or relaxed to suit the given time of day, mood & style of event. I am very attentive to detail, such as being at exactly the right volume, dressing for the occasion, ensuring my equipment is as neat & tidy as it can be, and that I’m not taking up any unnecessary space in the venue etc. I try to choose songs that are very well known to people, yet not always what they might expect to hear, and I always try to put a slight spin onto the versions of these songs, which keeps my sound fresh & unique. I am completely self contained, punctual & very reliable, and I always make sure my performance is the best that it can be. I am based in Manchester in the North West. Some of my past clients include Marriott Hotels, Hotel Indigo, Manchester Airport, Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet, Pizza Express & Jack Daniels, plus many weddings up and down the UK.

Customer questions

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

No problem at all, just get back in touch with your new times.

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

Yes.

How much time do you need to set up?

30 mins.

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

Yes, no problem.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, I am completely self contained - all I require is access to a mains power supply.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes no problem. I would charge an extra £20 per new song.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My song choices are always hugely complemented by clients. I like to play well known tunes that might not always be heard regularly by cover artists - so often people are pleasantly surprised by what they hear. I also get praised very often for my voice as well.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have been playing a long time, so there would be too many to list! but a few stand out venues are The Ritz, The academy & The Deaf Institute in Manchester. I have also played some pretty unusual places too in the past such as The Lowry Cinema, and Manchester Airport!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

For solo acoustic performances I would say Neil Young, Paul Weller, John Martyn & Van Morrison...

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

I played the main stage whilst the sun was setting at Benicassim festival in Spain.

We booked Guy for an after dinner corporate event, the perfect end to our Celebration. Great Music that everyone enjoyed and commented on. Good response to questions beforehand which put us at ease, went to see Guy perform in Manchester before the event and had no doubt he would be just what we wanted. Would use him at future events and definitely recommend him.
