About Lewis

An Acoustic Musical Journey - 70's to modern day, 5* singer guitarist.
Singing guitarist
Public liability insurance of £5 million
Verified profile

Hello and thankyou for viewing my page! My name is Lewis, I'm a singer & guitarist from Maidstone, Kent, UK. First and foremost I'm passionate about music and in particular playing music for people! I love the way music and songs can transport you back to another time in your life, make you feel a certain way. My role is to create that atmosphere at your event! I've been a working musician for 15 years of my adult life, playing bars, restaurants, weddings, private parties and corporate events... Some on boats.... But mainly not on boats. I like to include as much variety as I can. There's so many amazing genres, one for every mood and setting, why pick just one? Diverse sets include music from the 60's to present day, acoustic rock & pop, to folk & soul! Perfect for any occasion, whether it's for atmosphere or for up front entertainment! My set up includes: *Bose L1S line array PA system for audiences up to 500 people. *Bose L1 compact line array PA for audiences of up to 50 people. Both of these create very high clarity, wide sound for any event or situation. *LED can lighting, if required *Full public liability insurance with up to £5,000,000 cover. Please feel free to browse my videos or take a look at my reviews from previous clients A musical journey for any event or function, if you're interested in more information, or to book, please get in touch. Many Thanks, Lewis

Cannot recommend Lewis highly enough. The lead up to the event was fantastic - Lewis was in regular communication with us, checking all the required details, answering any questions we had thoroughly and quickly. Unfortunately we had to postpone our wedding twice due to covid and Lewis couldn’t have been more supportive and understanding, taking care of the moves without any issue whatsoever. He even specially prepared a recording of a song in advance which he performed with my sister as a special surprise for my parents, a real highlight of the day. On the day he was phenomenal - arrived in perfect time, he was so unobtrusive that we didn’t even realise he’d arrived until he was fully set up and ready to go, no fuss whatsoever, a total professional. His music added so much to our ceremony lead up, our ceremony and our drinks reception - the atmosphere was amazing, so many people mentioned how great he was and we are so so lucky to have had him there at our wedding. Thank you so much, Lewis!

We booked Lewis for our wedding and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. Firstly Lewis was excellent to deal with in the lead up to our day and was really helpful and understanding with our multiple rearrangements due to Covid. Secondly Lewis was flexible subject to what the weather would be like on the day as to where he would set up. Lewis played 2 sets for us after dinner, prior to the nightime entertainment and he set the mood brilliantly. All our guests have commented on his brilliant song selection and his incredible voice and we couldn't agree more. Top bloke all round, Highly recommend, look no further.

Lewis was quite simply superb. Aligned on my musical choice before, ready to go as promised and then entertained the party building the atmosphere as he went. Received comments all night about how superb he was. Can't recommend him highly enough and happy to provide direct recommendations as needed.
