About Si

Singing guitarist
Alton
Verified profile
Versatile vocals, masterful guitar playing and boundless energy. Si is expertly adept at engaging audiences of all shapes and sizes.

A highly experienced guitarist with a versatile and varied vocal, Si has been playing live for over 15 years across the UK and Europe both in bands and as a solo performer. Picking up the guitar while he was still in short trousers, Simon also accompanies himself with live loops or even piano and is as happy playing in the background as he is whipping up a crowd at a lively party.

Jordon, S, 1 year ago

We booked Si and his band for our wedding in Spain and it was the best decision we could have made for our party and guests. The band's administrator, was a pleasure to work with from the start. He met with us in London to discuss our tastes and the atmosphere we were seeking and seemed to accommodate our every request. Flying them out from London to Spain could have been complicated but the band's easygoing nature and professionalism made this simple and hassle-free. And then the party. This band rocks! We wanted a rock/pop party and we got it in spades! Nobody left the dancefloor while the band was on and when they agreed to continue playing for another hour the whole place went nuts! It was the best dance party and rock show any wedding could ask for and if you're looking for great guys who can read a crowd and give them EXACTLY what they want, stop your search and book Si and his band. You will not regret it.

Just wanted to say a big thanks to you and the band for an exceptional performance on Friday evening. I think my favourite bit was when I joined in for 'Livin on a Prayer', really enjoyed the first hour and fantastic last half hour at the end of the night . Good times all round! Everyone loved it.
