About Thomas

Hi, my name's Thomas Brian! I'm a solo guitar vocalist that provides entertainment for weddings and other private functions.
Singing guitarist
Manchester
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Hi, my name’s Thomas Brian. I’m originally from Leicester but I’ve lived in Manchester since 2007 when I moved up north to study music at Salford University. Since then I’ve been very active in the Manchester music scene, playing in a variety of function bands, originals bands and acoustic ensembles. This included my previous function band The Flat 5 Band who I was with for several years. In the summer of 2015, I spent several months as the resident guitar vocalist at Caldera Palace, a 5* Thomson resort in Crete. This was a big learning curve for me as it allowed me to improve my playing, having to perform up to four sets a night, six nights a week to a widely varied audience.

Tom played for us on the Sunday of our event. We needed some music for a catering area at the show. Great guitarist and great song choices for the occasion. Ideal for the audience. Knows what he's doing and does it very well. Very nice chap too. Will certainly re-book.

'We asked Tom if he could learn a selection of songs for Jane's 60th birthday, and he did not disappoint. The restaurant was very small but Tom knew actually how to gauge the audience and the atmosphere that afternoon, and provided us with a perfect mix of songs from the 50s and 60s. I would highly recommend him again for any sort of event!'
