Verified profile
I am an experienced musician specialising in Vocals, Keys and Trumpet, based in Brighton but willing to travel

I am an experienced musician specialising in Vocals, Keys and Trumpet. I have played and sung since an early age, and became a full-time professional musician in 2008. Since then I have been involved in many varied projects from session work including TV and Radio appearances, through to international performances in Japan, Sweden, and Ireland among others. My career so far has incorporated genres as diverse as opera, reggae and metal, demonstrating my versatility. For the past 9 years I have managed and fronted a function band Major Major performing at weddings and parties, and have been a member of Professional choir Blossom Street recording an award-winning CD. I have performed at festivals and events to thousands of people, and love to entertain crowds and put on a great show. I also accompany 60-strong indie choir The Jam Tarts for concerts and festival appearances. Please get in contact if you feel I might be suitable for your project, whether it be recording or live, or if you would be interested in booking any of the projects I work with.

Major Major played at our wedding and they were superb! Took the time to come chat with us and congratulate us during intervals and played a wide range of music so that everyone was up on the dance floor! I'd recommend them to anyone, they were fantastic! Thank you for making our day the best ever! Alex & Emily Mulvin

Geoff C, 3 years ago

A huge thank you to Ian for an amazing set at our wedding on the 29th October last year. His energy really got the crowd moving, lots of positive comments from our guests (many of them musicians themselves) We enjoyed every moment of it, including our first dance which he performed so beautifully at what I understand can be a bit of a challenging venue! *BOOK HIM NOW, YOU WON'T REGRET IT!

Jackie, 2 years ago

A 5 * act. A very talented, personable performer. So nice to see someone enjoying what they do so much. He got people dancing and everyone has said how great he was. A great find would definitely book again
