Verified profile

I love to entertain people with my repertoire of over 1000 songs, and whether people just want to listen, join in or even get up and dance, I always provide an entertaining mix of songs. I love to tailor what I play based on what is requested for your event so I'm always happy to learn a specific song or two, to make the whole event as personal as possible. I'm also told I can be amusing as well! I trained as a classical guitarist, but was brought up on sixties chart hits. I have a variety of styles depending on the song whether it is fingerstyle blues, strumming, progressive rock or playing a beautiful classical piece for a wedding. In 1999 I sang to 11 million people on Stars in their Eyes and I have also played piano to two people during a gale force 8 storm, when I worked for P&O! I've been a guitar teacher for twenty years, and a songwriter for thirty. I also play in a cello/guitar duo.

John played at an afternoon garden pub party we had organised to celebrate the life of my Dad. We wanted some live music to provide a nice atmosphere and requested music from my dads era 60/70s. John pitched it perfectly in terms of volume and the songs he played. The music and singing were excellent, and he took some song requests from the party attendees. Afterwards he stayed for a drink and chatted to our guests for a bit. Highly recommend.

John played two excellent sets. Everyone enjoyed the music. We choose some of the songs and he played them really well. John was perfect for my 60th birthday party!

We have had John play over the Brecon Jazz many times, and we always enjoy the huge variety of songs he brings! He has a voice similar to James Taylor, which is light but upbeat, and he sings a mixture of pop, rock, country and chart hits from the present day back to the rock and roll era. We like his own material too, which is quirky folk. We would strongly recommend him .

Brecon T, 4 years ago

John is one of our favourite performers - he has played here quite a few times. As well as bringing a fresh, improvised feel, we enjoy the way he interacts with the audience - friendly and funny! We have had him play on New Year's Eve, too. He doesn't just play covers, he brings his own personality to them!
