About Steve

Steve Gibbs's profile picture
Guitarist
Peterborough
Verified profile
I've been performing and entertaining since I was a nipper, my primary goal is your enjoyment!

I've been playing guitar since I was 8 years old, writing songs and playing in bands since my early teens. When performing solo, I play acoustic guitar and a mixture of instrumentals and songs. I can perform sets of all covers, all originals, or a mix of the two - whatever the customer wants! When I'm not busy doing my own thing, I'm also lead guitarist with The Boatmen and half of Two Lucky Pluckers

Customer questions

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

I appreciate that arrangements can change, often at short notice! I'll do my very best to help you make your event run as smoothly as possible.

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

I'm happy to provide music through my PA, both before I play, in between my sets and after I finish, for an additional fee of course. You can provide the music yourself on an iPod or similar, or send me details of the style of music you'd like and I'll do the rest!

How much time do you need to set up?

I can be set up and ready to play in seconds if it's an acoustic gig. For bookings where I need my full PA and lighting etc. then I'll need around 45 minutes to be ready to perform.

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

Absolutely, I'd rather you did!

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

I bring everything needed for my performance, including lighting, PA etc. All I need from you is a performance area at least 2 meters square and a suitable nearby mains electricity supply. Oh, and parking near where the stage is!

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

I'm happy to learn and perform and few songs of your choosing if they're not already in my set list, providing I have a few weeks between when you booked me and the performance date to learn them!

What do your clients love most about your performances?

They tell me they love my music and musicianship, and the banter between me and the audience.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have performed all over the UK, in everything from Scout Huts to Stadiums, but I'm happy playing in smaller clubs, pubs and private venues as well.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

People like Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton, Tom Petty, The Eagles. But I just love good music, any good music.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I played quite recently at a stadium in Cardiff to many thousands of people, so that would be the one.

We booked Steve and Ross to play at my wife’s 50th birthday party. The guys were absolutely brilliant and played an excellent mix of great songs. Both were really friendly and fantastic at what they do, we can’t recommend them enough! Thank you for helping make it a great night guys!

We chose the lucky pluckers as the 1st band to play at our wedding during the drinks reception and bbq. We couldn't have made a better decision. They were brilliant from the minute we booked them, calling weeks in Afghans to chat through details and see if we had any requests we wanted playing to the minute they left the wedding have played a brilliant set for 2 hours. They are the friendliest and most professional pair who really wants to make our day special. And they did. Thank you so much, I couldn't recommend highly enough.
