About Simon

Saint Ives
Versatile and understanding Acoustic Singer.

I am an acoustic guitarist/singer based in St Ives, Cambridgeshire.I have played all over the UK as part of a band and as an acoustic act for the last 10 years. I play covers ranging from 1950s on wards. I have performed numerous Weddings and events, around 800 shows in total! I am a perfect option for music whilst guests arrive at your wedding, or something a bit more lively later on before a DJ or band. My rates are competitive ( I am married so understand the expense! ) I provide my lighting and PA system. I also have a play list which can be tailored to your event for when I am not performing. For my set I do 2 x 50 mins or I can tailor to your needs depending on what you would like? Please email me for my song list and quote. If you want a live music element on your big day then what I can offer will cover most needs and you will not be disappointed. I am booking quite quickly for Summer 2019, so please don't hesitate to get in touch!
