About Wayne

Verified profile

My love and passion for music has led to me being a working and gigging musician for over 20 years from performing regularly in Jazz duos, trios and quartets around Leeds when I was a music student, to performing in covers bands playing every style of music imaginable; rock, pop, blues, funk, R'n'B, country, rock'n'roll, reggae, etc. My love and passion for music has also led me into teaching music and I regularly teach private music lessons as well as being a lecturer and Head of BA in Music Performance at Liverpool Media Academy. Having worked as a solo artist for a number of years, I am able to suit my set of songs to the audience, I have a wide and varied set of music from 1950's to modern day pop songs and everything in between. I am very professional in my business and if you book me for your; event, function, wedding, celebration , etc, then you will not be disappointed. Any questions or queries, then please feel free to contact me. Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. Wayne.

Customer questions

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

No problem, I always try to be flexible and realise that events especially weddings, do not always run to schedule.

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

Yes.

How much time do you need to set up?

30 - 45 minutes

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

Yes

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If given enough notice I am happy to learn a song that I do not have in my setlist.

We had a brilliant night of partying on my 70th birthday. Wayne is a great singer and an amazing guitarist. He was very friendly and obliging, what a super guy! My guests couldn't believe that I had just 'picked him out of the air', I was so lucky to choose him. Thanks Wayne, you helped make my party, I hope you enjoyed it as much as me and all my guests.

Wayne performed at our restaurant on new year's eve. He played the guitar and songs on the evening. The customers really enjoyed his performances and he was very friendly and professional. I definitely would not hesitate to use Wayne again and would recommend him to anyone who is thinking of hiring live entertainment for an evening.

Wayne was amazing at our evening reception when we got married at the beginning of September 2021. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed his playlist and we had positive comments after the wedding too. Would highly recommend Wayne and we will book him again if the need arises.

We hired Wayne for a long awaited 50th birthday party. We were apprehensive about hiring live music to play within a marquee situated in a garden. Wow!!!! Wayne was fantastic! He held the crowd from 16-80 years old. He kept the dance floor filled from the onset. Kept the entire crowd entertained. Amazing! Totally recommend Wayne for all events and look forward to hiring him again in the not so distant future.
