Verified profile

My name is Tom and I’m a singer/guitarist based in Leeds, UK with a passion for performing great live music. Whilst studying music at University, I began playing in a covers band focusing mainly on Motown, Pop, Funk and Soul. Since then, I have developed a love for performing live music, whether it be fronting a band or as a soloist with an acoustic guitar. After leaving University, I continued to play live and have since performed at over 200 events. With years of experience playing at pubs, parties, weddings and private events, I've built an extensive repertoire of songs spanning through many genres of music (see sample repertoire below). As a performer, my priority is to consistently play to the highest standard whilst making sure the audience is having a great time.

Book this band. You will not regret it. Booked the guys for a Christmas party with only 3 weeks notice and they were so helpful - with the added bonus of being low maintenance, flexible and chilled to work with. Not only was their band set excellent despite being down a bass player - they had people up dancing from the very first number (no mean feat in Yorkshire) but their DJ set kept the tunes coming. They worked around us and even gave us an extra 30mins of boogie times at the end. Top blokes. Will definitely be booking again! They need to learn a Bowie number though... (10 / 10)

Customer questions

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

Not to worry, I’m really flexible and can cater set lengths and timings to your needs.

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

Yes, I always provide background music in between sets and can provide a DJ service until 12am for an additional £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually arrive an hour before playing unless requested to arrive earlier. If I am required to arrive any earlier, I charge £10 for every additional hour.

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

You are more than welcome to provide me with a list of “favourites” from my repertoire which I will work into my sets.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes definitely! All instruments and equipment are included.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If there is a song you’d particularly like me to play, I will be more than happy learning it for you for an additional fee of £20.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I have a personable and charismatic approach to my performances. I am well known for my ability to appeal to all audience members and entice people of all ages, whether by humming along to background music or filling the dance floor. I cover songs from all eras and pride myself on performing songs famously sang by both male and female artists.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

My main influences include Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, John Mayer and Bruno Mars. Being a lover of all kinds of music, there are too many to list here but I lean towards artists from the funk, soul and Motown genres.
