Verified profile

Hi, I'm Mike James, a Cardiff based singer/songwriter who performs soulful acoustic covers in a wide variety of settings. I have performed at many private events and weddings, from beautiful Manor houses, outdoor events and even very small boats! Always happy to accommodate! Haha I have also written and performed "best man" songs for friends in the past, so happy to help with that is required (just pass on their number) 😜 I know a large amount of songs without the need of those cheeky iPads that people use (I believe in old school musicianship 😝) and am also more than happy to learn any requests you have for your big day. Just give me some notice please as this can take some time. I provide all of my own equipment and have my own transport. I’m very friendly to communicate with and will always help make your day a special one to remember. Thanks for looking and do get in touch, you won’t be disappointed. Look forward to hearing from you, Mike 🎸

Customer questions

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

I will always try my best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know as soon as you can and hopefully we can work things out : )

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

Absolutely. I actually offer this service for you. I can set it up for you during my intervals for free. If you'd like a DJ service via the PA before my 1st set or after the final set, that will be no problem, but will be an additional £35 per hour.

How much time do you need to set up?

I can usually set up in about 30 minutes before the performance time. It may take slightly longer depending on the setting.

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

My set lists are crafted from many performances and learning what songs/order works best to ensure guests have the best time. However, I'm definitely happy to chat through my songlist and make sure we find what works for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes! I bring my own acoustic instrument with a PA suitable for the venue.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list then feel free to request a new song. I'm more than happy to try to learn any new songs for you. There is a fee of £50 per song for this service which takes into account practice and rehearsal time. (It might be £1000+ to learn Bohemian rhapsody on ukulele though!!!) Haha ; p
