About Jonathan Vernam

The #1 acoustic guitarist in the new forest. I’ve played countless weddings and shows, guaranteed to wow your guests
Public liability insurance of £5 million

I am a (non singing) full time solo musician performing and teaching guitar everyday. I have a unique style of guitar playing which brings a warm atmosphere to weddings, funerals, engagements and events. My music is very emotional and passionate and is perfect for background music. Think more heart warming instrumental classics rather than party sing alongs… If you’re looking for a party singer then I unfortunately won’t be what you’re looking for. However, if you want some touching instrumental covers as a backdrop for your guests then I will fit in perfectly! Requests available pre performance.

Jonathan was amazing at our drinks reception. He kept our guests entertained with the perfect background music. His guitar covers are so mesmerising.
