About Nick

I play solo Spanish guitar arrangements of popular pop songs, jazzy & latin, TV themes, and anything else I can think of.
Guitarist
London

I play and sing versions of pop songs, jazz standards and evergreens - whatever seems suitable for the audience I'm entertaining. I create a mellow atmosphere which is subtle enough for people to be able to carry on their conversations, but that rewards listeners with musicality if they wish to 'tune in'. I have a repertoire of about 400 pieces, but am happy to add to it if there are favourites the client wants to request - if I can learn them, I will! I have been doing this for a while, and so I am well accustomed to adapting to what is needed, and picking up on the mood of a room. I have also had a lot of experience entertaining people, and so, if the audience is in the mood to participate, I can go with it and have some fun!

Nick played at our wedding recently. He was the most amazing, flexible and communicative professional during all the process. He even learnt new songs for the day.

My company had a drinks reception for some clients, and I hired Nick hoping to make the gathering a bit less formal. It worked a treat. The atmosphere was was so much friendlier and Nick’s choice of music was spot on.
