About Josh

Josh is a very experienced touring musician having played in touring shows and private events.
Singing guitarist
Verified profile

I'm a very experienced singer and entertainer that can accompany myself on the guitar. I've performed in pubs, clubs, weddings and events and have experience with UK touring theatre companies. I'm very versatile as far as my set goes. Nothing is concrete for me so if you want something specific just let me know and I can tailor my set to your needs. On the other hand, if you are unsure as to what you want, I'm happy to provide suggestions once we are in contact. I have a lot of experience playing live music and performing in front of large theatre audiences and more intimate events audiences. I'm willing to play on my own at events/pub or club gigs. Don't mind being made a feature or just providing back ground ambience. I can play a variety of styles depending on what you require or don't mind taking bookings with a specific style or genre. Eg: a 50's / 60's Rock and Roll, 80's Rock Hits, Jazz/Crooner standards, modern pop/rock hits... I'm can also session for bands who require singers/backing singers who may need to play rhythmic instruments such guitar, bass, keyboard and drums.

Yes. All equipment is provided in the quoted price.

Josh Tye is a fantastic singer and musician who we got from the internet, he attended our joint 50th birthday party playing live with his guitar and tailored our songs to suit, of which we selected a variety of 60's 80's to modern. Communication was easy and he will play to suit times and breaks etc, we highly recommend him and will definitely use Josh for any future events.
