Lennon played for my 40th birthday and was fantastic. He took requests on the night, and let us all have a sing along towards the end. Couldn't recommend him enough!

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I think the range of genres I cover. One minute you're hearing Johnny Cash, the next, it's Marvin Gaye, etc. I love classic music, so it's always a pleasure to pay tribute to those great old artists and bands.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I've played hundreds of pubs up and down the country which has been a real trial by fire at times, but has also allowed me to master my craft in a vareity of different settings. Playing weddings and corporate events has also allowed me to see some stunning venues and parts of the country.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

The Beatles, Chris Stapleton, The Eagles, Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, Chuck Berry, Marcus King, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Lukas Nelson, Bill Withers, Elton John, Richard Ashcroft, Noel Gallagher, and so many more!

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

I once played a gig at Liverpools notorious Cavern Club, which was a dream come true.

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

This is totally fine. As long as I know a few days in advance, and as long as the changes don't require me to be on-site for for a much longer time, then no problem at all.

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

Yes of course, I can have a playlist on for you in between sets and this is free of charge.

How much time do you need to set up?

I require 30 minutes to set up for solo performances, and 90 minutes to set up for band performances.

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

Yes. I always ask for 10 favourites from my repertoire, which then gives me a good basis to start crafting the rest of the set list to your taste.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes. Always ask beforehand, as it may be a song that I already know that i've just forgotten to add to my set list. For additional song requests, I charge £25 to take into account rehearsal times.
