From customers:

Angus P, 5 years ago

“Nic played lead guitar in the band for Glasgow Live Productions’ ‘RENT’ and was a delight to work with. Technically he is a great guitarist and had no problems with any of the material. On top of his top-quality playing, he made very good use of different patches and effects which added greatly to the show. Nic would be welcome back to GLP anytime!”

Alan S, 6 years ago

“Nic came highly recommended as lead guitarist for a production of Rent I was working on and not only was he a fantastic player with excellent gear, he fitted in very well into the team with a professional attitude and amenable personality. I would have no hesitation in using and recommending him again”.
