About Tom Corneill

All your favourite tunes brought to you by an authentic singer-songwriter.
Singing guitarist
Bath
Public liability insurance of £1 million

I've been providing the perfect soundtrack for audiences all over the world for over a decade. I specialise in popular music from the 60s to today, and in providing the perfect entertainment for your big day. When I’m not bringing the groove to events like yours, I’m enjoying life as a singer-songwriter with music of my own. I have been played on TV (Hollyoaks, ITV Sports) and radio stations worldwide (BBC Radio 2 with Dermot O’Leary, BBC 6Music with Tom Robinson and other stations all over the globe) and have graced many a festival stage with my original material (including a couple of slots at Glastonbury). Artists I might cover on a night like yours include Eagles, The Beatles, Rihanna, Oasis, Taylor Swift, Del Amitri, Crowded House, Prince, The Jayhawks, Tracey Chapman, Roxette, Elbow, Foo Fighters, Bear’s Den, Tom Petty, Take That, Ryan Adams, Donovan, Willie Nelson, Fleetwood Mac, Glen Campbell, Green Day, Sheryl Crowe, Don McLean, Elton John, Jimmy Eat World, The Verve, Simon & Garfunkle, Bob Dylan, David Grey, Erasure, The Rolling Stones, Dire Straits and there are more being added to the list all the time. Entertaining isn't just about singing songs, it's about understanding the host's needs and being able to read the room and play something just right for that moment. And that's what I intend to do for you! My years of experience have taught me how to deliver exactly what you need, and how to ensure your guests never forget the fun they had. So book me, and let's get the party started!!

Tom is an extremely talented musician - he played at our wedding in France, both throughout our ceremony, cocktails and later into the evening. He brought an energy that matched our day exactly as we planned, creating the perfect atmosphere through key points of our day. Not only does he sound great, he also worked with us to tailor a set list with all our favourite songs and explore other considerations that might be suitable. Tom is a lovely chap, it was an absolute pleasure to work with him on the lead up to our wedding and have him there on the day - I would absolutely recommend Tom for any event!

Tom Corneill's Song list

I play tunes from recent years right back to the sixties and would be happy to curate the perfect playlist for your night. My list grows every week but here's a sample (and please let me know if you'd like me to play specific songs so I can get them fresh in mind!). I've grouped it roughly by era so if you can't find the one you're looking for, it might be in another list!
The following list is sorted roughly into eras and/or styles - for country/americana style music please make sure you check out the category at the bottom.

Packages
Pub & Hotel Proprietors
If you are a pub or hotel owner seeking a standard set of entertainment for 2x45 minutes (plus Spotify playlist during my break) and are happy for me to choose the songs, I offer my cheapest option. Pubs, bars and hotels are an important way of showcasing my performances, which is why I make such an allowances. For these bookings I provide all of the necessary equipment and provide a well-travelled set of crowd-pleasers from across the decades, from the Beatles to Ed Sheeran. Please note: I can't offer to learn special requests for these events, though I'm happy to take suggestions on the night if I know the tunes. This fee includes local travel costs but I may apply an additional fee for longer distance travel.
£225
The Proposal
Are you planning the perfect proposal? Do you need the perfect surprise soundtrack to the big moment? I'll make it the most memorable occasion for you by turning up and playing a perfect hour of romantic songs (or shorter, if you like). We can get creative - if you can find me somewhere to hide, it can be an additional surprise! And if it's in a remote location - on a beach, in a field etc - I will come completely unplugged so me and my guitar can roam as needed. And if you need me to disappear, just say the word ;) Let me know your special song and I'll play it for you as you celebrate your special someone saying 'YES'!!!
£450
Wedding ceremony
I'll welcome your guests for up to 30 minutes as they make themselves comfortable, then I'll play your choice of special song for your big entrance! I'll provide a few tunes during the register signing that are appropriate for the occasion, and then I'll play your choice of exit song as you leave the ceremony and enter the celebrations!
£450
Drinks reception
Following your special ceremony, let me provide the perfect soundtrack as you and your guests mingle and celebrate together. I can play for 60-90 minutes for the stated fee, or see my standard price list for longer bookings.
£450
The Full Day Soundtrack
For this price I will play up to 4 hours* from my playlist, spread across your day at whatever intervals you like. *for bookings over an hour I may take a quick break during sets as needed but will switch to my Spotify playlist in these moments. Let me know what you have in mind and we'll put together the perfect soundtrack to your day!

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My ability to pick the right tunes and play them with the right energy for the moment. I can play chilled out, I can get the room moving or I can take the crowd from one to the other. You let me know what kind of event you're looking for and I'll see it done.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Aside from wedding venues, pubs, clubs and festivals all over Europe, venues of note I've played at include Glastonbury Festival, The 100 Club in London, The Cavern Club in Liverpool, several O2 Academy and Komedia stages and many more.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I have very varied tastes but I suppose closest to my heart as a performer are acts like Eagles, Del Amitri, Tom Petty, Crowded House, The Beatles and Radiohead.

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

It's difficult to pick the most high profile gig but highlights have been sets at Glastonbury, headlining and being the main support on stages at smaller festivals around the UK and supporting bands like Top Loader and The Coronas. Oh, and I've supported the Wurzels!!

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

Just let me know and I'll always try to accommodate. As long as I get enough notice to make changes before taking more bookings on the same day that may clash, I'll endeavour to make it work!

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

Yes, let me know your requirements and I'd be happy to fill in the gaps via a playlist. Either you can send me your own Spotify playlist to put through my PA or I can create one that matches the mood of the day.

How much time do you need to set up?

Setup is generally pretty quick but I try to allow 45 minutes in case I need a little longer. This time is factored into my pricing.

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

Upon choosing me, at your request I'll share my master list of tunes. You have the option to select your favourites or leave it to me to choose the right ones for the occasion once you've told me a little more about the event. You can choose up to two additional tunes if something you want isn't on the list for an additional charge of £30 per song.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, I bring everything needed.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

I offer to learn up to two additional tunes per event (I perform several events per week and learning takes time!) at an additional charge of £30 per song.
