Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I'm able to perform songs that clients really love and I'm happy to learn songs that are particularly sentimental to clients. I've performed at a wide range of events and that has broadened my repertoire to cover all ages and styles.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Carden Park Manchester House Owen House Barn Styal Lodge Sailtaire Town Hall The Principal Hotel, Manchester Castlefield Rooms Didsbury House Old Trafford Cricket Club The Albert Hall, Manchester The Deaf Institute The Mercure Hotel Manchester The Renaissance Hotel, Manchester The Freemount Affleck & Brown KPMG - Manchester Ethiad Stadium - Manchester City

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

James Taylor Paul Simon Joni Mitchell The Kooks Queen Ed Sheeran Chuck Berry

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

I've performed as part of footballer, James Milners Wedding and private meal and for footballer James Chester at his wedding. I was also in an episode of Cheshire Housewives performing for a birthday party.

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

I understand a lot of events can vary in their timings, I'm happy with up to 30minutes of a change but any more than that I'd charge a £50 fee per hour for wait time and if it is extra sets required that would be an additional fee on top.

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

Yeah, I can provide a iPad service for inbetween sets and possibly after if that is what you'd require. I'm happy to do it for free between sets and after sets it is £100 an hour.

How much time do you need to set up?

Usually takes me around 30 minutes to load in a set up all of my equipment.

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

Yeah no problem and I'd be happy to learn tracks for your event too.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yeah I've got all I need and my sound system is fully insured and PAT tested. This will amplify my guitar and voice for the event.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yeah that is no problem, I'm happy to do this. Send over a link to the song and I can learn it for you. Happy to send over song demos too I charge £15 a song for rehearsal time.

Liam was the perfect addition to the drinks reception at our wedding! We were so impressed with his performance, as we’re all of our guests who couldn’t stop raving about him! Liam performed all of the songs we requested and really sent the mood for the rest of our wedding day! Thank you so much for being part of our day!

I booked Liam to play during my wedding drinks reception but honestly wished I’d booked him for the whole day! So many guests approached me after he’d finished to say how he’d just made the whole afternoon. So talented and professional, he reached out a few weeks before the day to confirm details and was on time and ready to start as soon as we arrived at the wedding reception. Cannot recommend highly enough!

I stumbled upon Liam’s when searching for a guitarist to perform at my mum and dads surprise anniversary party. At first I was hesitant about booking a musician as I was worried about it being only a small event and I only wanted backing music. I emailed Liam with my concerns and he put me at ease instantly,he was quick to respond, patient with my ongoing list of questions and he even sent a list of his upcoming events so me and my sister could go check out his performance before booking! After seeing him perform I was massively impressed and instantly put down the deposit! Liam took the time to learn a requested song which was my mum and dads wedding song and performed it beautifully as they came Into the room!! I can’t recommend Liam enough and throughout the event I had numerous amounts of people, including the director of the venue, asking for Liam’s details and complimenting his performance! Thank you again for helping to make the event so perfect !
