About James

Electric Guitarist
Public liability insurance of £10 million
Hi! I'm James, a guitar player living in Coventry. If you would like me to perform for your event please get in touch!

I've always been around music, whether it was singing in choirs as a child to playing drums in my teenage years, music has always been a massive part of my life. I have been performing since the age of 7. I picked up guitar at 14 and at age 18 I moved to Coventry to study guitar on Nexus ICA's Popular Music & Worship course. Throughout my time at Nexus I grew massively as a musician and I began playing in several originals and covers bands. Since finishing I have gigged across the country, everything from a tent outside, o2 academy venues, dingy pubs to MainStage at a festival. I have also performed at many wedding ceremonies and receptions with my band Stuck In The Groove. Currently I am studying Music Technology at Coventry University as I am pursuing work in recording and live sound.

Stuck in the Groove brought a wonderful atmosphere to our wedding day with their music. Nicola and James are great musicians and played beautiful music at our reception. They worked well with our preferences for the evening and played a lovely variety of chill out covers as guests arrived from the ceremony. Stuck in the Groove were polite, friendly and professional throughout the event. Many of our guests were thoroughly impressed by the music. Stuck in the Groove are a great choice for weddings and we would highly recommend them to other couples!

Stuck in the Groove was AMAZING! We loved having them perform at our wedding. Everyone danced all evening and they even did some of our favourite songs. And on top of that, our first dance was played live, which made it even more special. Thank you so much!
