About Jon

Guitarist
London
Public liability insurance
I've been playing solo Guitar as well as playing in bands for 20 years and I'm available for weddings,functions, restaurants and similar.

I've been playing Guitar as a solo artist as well as playing in bands for 20 years and can cover a wide ranging repertoire. As a solo Jazz Guitarist I often get hired to play back ground music at functions, restaurants and weddings, but I'm equally happy in a bustling bar environment. Although I usually play a selection of Jazz Standards I enjoy weaving other styles into a solo Guitar format and happily take requests (in advance is preferable). I don't use backing tracks. Although a lot of my work is solo I also often work with a clarinetist and/or saxophonist and this can usually be arranged on request. I have a selection of amplification options to cover any size of venue.

I hire Jon on a regular basis and he always creates a great atmosphere for my club weather playing solo or with his fantastic saxophonist. All with out any fuss, very easy to deal with!

Jon was great. Turned up,set up and played beautiful Jazz Guitar as my guests arrived and through the meal up to the speeches. All needed was a plug socket. Totally fuss less and self contained
