“Gareth Wax performed a brilliant turn at The Surrey Steampunk Convivial. Even when his 30 minute set followed an exciting and vibrant band, he managed by hook or by crook to get absolutely everyone on their feet and dancing; Fantastic value, great fun - and we’d love to have him back again and again!”

I was blown away when I first saw Gareth play his set at a local charity festival called West Fest. His energy and enthusiasm, the quirky upbeat tracks he played, his drumming and (not forgetting) his bow tie 😊 made me start to think about throwing an informal house party for around 30 of our friends and how we could make that work. Our garden isn’t massive by any stretch but the kit he bought with him soon filled the air wonderfully and he had our guests really engaged in his performance and enjoying the music. At the beginning of the evening, he had over 6 kids of all differing ages surrounding his drums; asking questions and being inquisitive. Gareth entertained them brilliantly, answering all of their questions and really getting them interested in drumming and music before providing his set for the rest of the night. We hadn't had a party like that for many years : hours of fun and laughter and of course great music. Gareth was a huge factor in making the evening go with a bang. The rate he charged us was extremely reasonable too and he checked in with me throughout the entire evening to make sure we were happy with the style of music played. I would highly recommend Gareth for your event and will be using him again in the future for sure. In fact, I need another reason to celebrate.... when are you free next Mr W....?!?’ 😊
