Verified profile

Ever since figuring out the Crazy Frog Theme on piano at the age of 12, Marc Gallagher has always seen the quirky side of music. With an upbringing of Queen and NOW CDs, Marc’s songwriting style was shaped by the sensibilities of 2000’s pop. Spending the next 14 years picking up anything that made noise, Marc grew proficient on 10 instruments before primarily selecting the ukulele as his weapon of choice. Marc has plied his trade around bars, weddings and parties with one of the most diverse repertoires around. With countless shows under his belt, Marc has entertained audiences of all kinds with over 700 covers in his back pocket. His 2016 debut album “Hello Cruel World” saw the song Baseball Game earn video play in SXSW in Austin, Texas. Marc also achieved BBC Radio Airplay after gaining attention for a streak of 100 gigs in 3 months with no days off. 2017 saw the release of “Songs From A Shit Summer”, a deeply personal concept album which played like a sonic journal over a tough time in Marc’s life. Stripped back to the bare bones of just uke and voice, Marc’s painful stories sold out on CD within the first month. This album also bagged Marc the Red Sails Songwriting Award in Northern Ireland. 2018 brought an evolution in the form of “Level Up”, with full band accompaniment and a mature set of diverse songs. Dancing between pop, folk and some soft rock elements, the “album to smile to” compared “night and day” to the previous year’s outing. 2019’s “Songs From a Happy Winter” offers a direct rebuttal to its 2017 shittier summery counterpart. Taking influence from Brad Paisely, Paul Simon and Annenmaykantereit, his latest album reflects Marc at his most refined, with songs flirting between pop ballads and German rock. Playing every instrument-save for drums-Marc demonstrates his varied musicianship through his powerful arrangements. Instrumental covers have gained notoriety, with well-received ukulele solo performances of “Stairway To Heaven”, “Hotel California” or even the “Wallace & Gromit Theme”. These renditions have wowed audiences throughout Europe, with one cover of Tom Petty’s “Free Fallin’” going viral and achieving over 40,000 views. As of 2019 Marc maintains an online presence with weekly cover videos in often impressive locations. He also performs frequent collaboration videos with stalwarts of the Manchester music scene and the ukulele music circuit, earning wide public acclaim. Such collaborators have included Jake Shimabukuro, Abe Lagrimas Jr, Andrew Molina, Danielle Ate The Sandwich, Victoria Vox, Charlotte Pelgen, Peter Moss, Phil Doleman, Percy Copley among countless others. 2022 saw Marc's career reach new heights, averaging 5-7 live performances per week including supporting the incomparable Jake Shimabukuro at Grand Northern Ukulele Festival. He released 2 personal singles in "Sad Elephant" and "I'm So Glad You're Still Here" to widespread critical acclaim, and concluded the year on the cover of UKE Magazine. Through his online work, Marc has captured the attention of the ukulele world and beyond, earning recognition as an endorsed Artist of Pono Ukuleles, MiSi Pickups, and Ear Trumpet Labs Microphones. Marc’s musical accolades have seen him perform his energetic and emotive brand of Pop-Folk at festivals and tours in 11 countries, including Ireland, Germany, Austria and even the USA. Through a tireless work ethic, Marc has been putting in the miles on his travels, and the engine isn’t stopping anytime soon.

Thank you for being part of making our big day perfect. From booking over a year in advance, to the day of the wedding Marc was great with communication, ensuring everything would run smoothly, and giving us a huge set list to choose songs from to tailor his performance to us. Our guests couldn’t compliment him enough! I wouldn’t hesitate to have Marc play at any future event.

Marc was a great addition to the wedding something a bit different but sounded great - even better in real life than videos. Plenty of choice on song selection aswell but he knows what works!

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I adapt my set to the audience, and allow my music to complement the atmosphere, whatever that may be. From relaxed background music to dancing on tables, I can mould my show to fit whatever the occasion.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I play pretty much everywhere, and my music has taken me to The Hilton in Liverpool, Manchester's Night & Day Cafe, The Crown Hotel in Nantwich, The Lawrence Batley Theatre in Huddersfield, and I have made appearances at a variety of Ukulele Festivals around Europe, including playing at UfaFabrik in Berlin!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I am massively influenced by Ed Sheeran and Brad Paisley, but my style of ukulele playing was just developed by my own style, stemming partially from the influence of 2000's pop music.

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

Probably my slot on the Main Stage of Ukulele Festival of Scotland in 2018, with around 600 in attendance from all across the world.

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

Not a problem at all! Simply let me know as soon as you know about your timings and I'll gladly make alternative arrangements.

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

I can do it for in between my sets, let me know in advance what kind of music you like and I will do my best to make an appropriate playlist.

How much time do you need to set up?

I won't need any more than an hour to set up my equipment and change. If you have a quick turnaround, simply let me know and I can make arrangements for a very speedy set up

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

I learn new songs with great ease and have amassed a repertoire of over 750 songs. I commonly adapt my set to the audience to deliver the most engaging show possible, but if you wish to hand-pick my set list from my repertoire, you are more than welcome to do so.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Indeed! I come fully self-contained, the only thing I need is a plug socket.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If you give me at least 2 weeks notice I will learn a song or 2 especially for your event, and some of my favourite shows have included me learning a song bespoke for the client.
