Guitarist
Basildon
J. R Hemingway is a Folk/Rock Singer/Guitarist - who also plays as a duo with Violinist (if requested)

J. R Hemingway has over 10 years experience in playing Folk/Rock songs at Weddings, birthdays, and many other different types of events, private and public. With a large repertoire of songs, always happy to learn a particular song (s) to make your special occasion, event, as tailored to you as you wish. J. R Hemingway also plays in a duo with an amazing violinist/backing vocalist (if this is something that you're interested in - please request) I am Essex born and raised; at a young age I knew my calling was music. Inspired by front men like Bruce Springsteen & Caleb Followill and with a desire to create my own art, I bought my first guitar. As I got older and my confidence grew I started writing. Because your wedding day is one of, if not the most special day of your life, I want it to be the perfect day, so I aim to be as flexible as possible for you, in regards of what you want to make your day extra special. Upon request – I will learn particular songs (e.g. for your first dance or for your walk down the aisle.) I can play/sing at any stage of your wedding day that you wish. I’ve been asked to and have played as guests are arriving, during the ceremony, as guests exit the ceremony, for guests as wedding photos are being taken, during wedding breakfast, in the evening before the DJ or the band. BAND I offer the option to book me + my amazing band for the evening reception, if that’s something you’re interested in (for that bigger ‘full band’ sound). We play anything from Folk Rock to Indie songs, from upbeat dancing songs, to delicate slow dance songs. And again, we are happy to learn particular songs for you. DUO I also offer a ‘Duo’ option, which includes an incredible classically trained violinist/backing vocalist + myself on acoustic guitar and lead vocals. VIOLINIST You can also book only our violinist to highlight certain parts of your ceremony/day/evening, if that is something that you think will make your day extra special and unique.

Reviews

From customers:

Mike B, 1 year ago

Having been to plenty of open mic nights in Leigh and Southend, Jordan was always our first choice to ask when it came to playing us down the aisle for our wedding. After meeting him so he could get an idea of our musical tastes, Jordan went off and learned some songs that he hadn’t even heard before and played them as if he had written them himself. Jordan helped surround our wedding with beautiful music, and we cannot thank him enough.

Vicki T, 1 year ago

Jordan & his band played several songs at our wedding including a few requests that we asked for that wasn’t necessarily their usual style. (Drake and Rihanna) However they made it their own and completely smashed it! They got everyone on the dance floor including myself playing the tambourine, interacted really well with our guests and really made the evening!
