About Kurtis

Guitarist
Derby
Verified profile
My Music makes me lose control. It takes over and I am passionate about every performance like it's the first.

I was born and raised in Derby, Listening to my Dad play guitar and sing. I learnt how to play guitar at an early age and since then it has been my passion to be a singer and songwriter. I have performed In bars, Clubs, Weddings and private functions. I am used to playing in front of a wide range of audiences. I am a versatile artist who can play covers and my own songs to suit the event.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

Not a problem, As long as I have a weeks notice to change my travel times, best thing to do is message me I'll always try and accommodate.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes, if I have requests before hand I can make a playlist or alternatively, I could play songs in-keeping with the theme of the event.

How much time do you need to set up?

I would ideally like 30 mins to set up so I can ensure you get the best sound out of the set.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

I have handpicked the songs I have to suit a wide range of audiences but I would be happy to try and learn a requested song.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, all I need is a plug socket.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If you let me know within enough time, I will always try and learn a new song.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I am professional and courteous, I can play a wide range of song and I have original songs that have always gone down well at events.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have played in different types of venues and different events including a formal wedding with music played during a sit down meal, a festival themed wedding, a new years eve function room hire out and a multi band show in Lemmington spa

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Nirvana Oasis Manchester Orchestra Radiohead Kate Nash KT Tunstall Lana Del Rey Don Broco Firestar and many others.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I played to a sold out New Years eve event for 200 guests where I was the only artist for entertainment. I played a mixture of covers and originals and I have received quite a few bookings from that one event.
