About Jonathan

Bass Guitarist
I am a friendly professional bass player with 15+ years of live gigging and recording experience across a multitude of genres.

Born in Texas and raised in Suffolk, Jon is a music graduate of Surrey University and the Academy of Contemporary Music and has been playing professionally for 20 years. He has spent the majority of the past decade playing with leading function bands on the London circuit as well as a recent stint on 6 star cruise line 'Seabourn' as the house bassist playing 4-5 sets daily in a myriad of styles - a real challenge in sight reading and versatility! Jon plays 4 and 5 string electric (fretted and fretless) and upright basses.

We hired Jonathan as a duo - double bassist and piano for our wedding drinks reception and it was an absolute pleasure. Jonathan communicated throughout, highly organised and more importantly the set list and music was amazing and exactly what we wanted. Thank you so much for helping make our wedding special

When I met Jonathan on the day, he was polite and very professional. They arrived promptly and we discussed the evening and how the client would like it to go. They were so flexible with discussing the timings especially as my client changed the brief slightly but they were more than happy to accommodate. Having this can do attitude not only makes my job as an event organiser so much easier but also helps the client relax and know that they are in good hands. The group entertained the party during dinner and certainly set the mood and got people into the Christmas spirit - this was a MUST. Thank you again for being so friendly and professional. Would certainly recommend.

Absolutely loved working with Nouveau Lounge - they customized their music (which was fantastic!) for our event, were incredibly responsive and an overall pleasure to work with. We've used them before for events and will definitely be using them again! Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful and fun ambiance for our event.
