About Steve

Singing guitarist
Solo singer guitarist playing feel-good songs from the last 7 decades. Very professional with many years experience.

I give an enthusiastic and engaging performance, with either quiet gentle background music or more up-tempo songs to dance to. I just use drum beats with my acoustic guitar, so my sound is clean, simple and personal. Ideal for weddings, parties, special events, pubs and clubs around Essex and neighbouring counties. My speakers and lighting can also be used as a small disco, when I’ve finished. I have many years’ experience performing with cabaret bands at theatres, holiday camps and working men’s clubs, all around the UK and Ireland. This has included being lead guitarist with a Roy Orbison tribute show and a singer guitarist with two professional and well established touring bands. In South-East England I have performed with trio’s, duo’s and as a solo artist at hundreds of venues and special events. A recording contract in my 20’s meant appearances on live radio shows and gigs on the London circuit.
