About Chris

The affordable alternative to a festival band - a big sound in a small package!
Singing guitarist
Public liability insurance of £10 million

A one-man band like no other, Chris plays drums, guitar and harmonica simultaneously to create an amazing full band sound, 100% live! His foot-drum skills have to be seen to be believed, and his cunning guitar effects can make other instruments seem to appear from nowhere (organ, strings, bass, flutes, vocal harmonies etc) No backing tracks required - everything is played and sung live, for an organic, engaging and entertaining show that will amaze your guests. Material can include acoustic/folk favourites as well as a rocked-up electric set of indie, rock and pop floor-fillers. Full PA and lights system provided to suit any venue from an intimate camp-fire or living-room session all the way up to a slamming dance-floor or mini-festival.

What a great afternoon with Chris at our Coronation Street Party. Right from the off he played some great tunes and really got the crowd going. Would definitely book Chris again.

We booked Chris for a surprise party for my boyfriend at a local restaurant/bar. Chris was a delight to deal with when organising the party, listening to my needs and catering his set to them. At the party he was amazingly professional, friendly and, above all, he’s an excellent musician. His range of songs catered to a wide variety of tastes and age groups. It really helped give the party a festival vibe. He got everyone involved and up dancing and really engaged with everyone there, who were all raving about his performance. Thank you Chris for making the party a night to remember. We wouldn’t hesitate to book him again for future events.
