About Pat

Bristol-based Singer and Acoustic Guitarist, specialising in live music for weddings.
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Hi, I’m Pat – a singer and acoustic guitarist from Bristol in the South West of England. I’ve been performing and entertaining crowds for over 10 years now, and I began specialising in wedding entertainment in 2011. I wanted to provide a different service from what was already out there – traditional classical guitarists are ideal for subtle background music, but I wanted to offer more of a focal point to entertain guests and provide something unique and memorable. An experienced musician and live performer, my love of music started at an early age – learning piano from age 8 and a self-taught guitarist from my early teens. I graduated with a degree in Music Technology in 2004, and completed a Masters degree in Songwriting in 2011. I’ve been performing as a solo act regularly in Bristol since I moved here nearly ten years ago. My style is a modern acoustic guitar and vocal sound – I play live with a loop pedal to create a distinctive sound. If you’ve ever seen Ed Sheeran live you’ll know how effective looping can be! I have a large and varied repertoire to choose from, with all eras covered from the 60s to the present day. The set list is your choice – and of course I welcome requests. I pride myself in giving a first class experience – not just on the big day, but right from the start of your booking with me. I’ve worked hard to build up my reputation – so far feedback has been 100% positive from every one of my bookings – and I truly believe that my services are the best around. I guarantee professionalism, reliability and flexibility.

“Hi Pat, Me and Ollie just wanted to say a huge thank you for helping to make our wedding day super amazing! You were a real star from start to finish and we had lots of our guests complimenting you on the day and afterwards. You really helped to create a great atmosphere throughout the day and expertly “read the mood” which was really perfect 🙂 Leading up to the wedding out of all our vendors you were the most easy to correspond with and dealt with everything super quickly and professionally, so thank you so much for helping to take some of that wedding planning stress away! I’m also so glad we kept you for the evening, as I really think it added a great atmosphere to have you there taking care of the playlist at the end – one of my best memories of the day was walking into the dining room from the marquee towards the end of the evening and being greeted by a room full of dancing people – it was just amazing! I’m so glad that we had you there on our big day, sorry we didn’t get a chance to chat more! We would both recommend you without hesitation, thank you so much again for everything

We booked Pat to play at our wedding after hearing his songs online, our wedding was back in April and he was brilliant! We had some great feedback from guests on the day too. Pat was so accomodating, he learnt new songs for first dance and he even learnt a bollywood song as a surprise for my Dad, which went down a treat. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Pat, planning a wedding is stressful however Pat couldn't have been any nicer and easy to work with!

Customer questions

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

If timings change slightly, just let me know - it shouldn't be a problem. If it's a significant change, I may have to requote and will also have to check my schedule to ensure I can accommodate the request.

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

I have various playlists that I put on during my breaks - I do not offer a DJ service.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually arrive to the venue 1-2 hours before I'm due to start playing. My compact set up is very quick to get up and running, usually within 15 mins. My larger evening set up usually takes around 30-45 mins.

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

Yes absolutely! You'll find my full repertoire online which you can choose from, and you can also make a number of special requests.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes - I have two setups, a small compact PA system for the daytime and a larger PA setup for the evening, if required.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

I can! Requests will need to be given to me at least a month before the event, due to my workload. I can't guarantee I'll have time to learn them if submitted later than this.
