Looking for some music for your wedding?

Or maybe you’re planning a birthday, or an anniversary party?

Whatever you’re celebrating, having a live singer can really lift the atmosphere – and make it a really memorable day for your friends and family.

We booked Joel to perform at our wedding and he was *excellent*.

He created an electric atmosphere and even took requests from guests! The kids were besotted with him and I hope we get the opportunity to book him again in the future.

But finding the right singer isn’t always easy!

Like a Band, but Smaller!

I’ll admit it – I’m a big fan of watching live bands (in fact I also play in one). But for a lot of occasions, a full band with electric guitars and a drum kit will just be too much.

Hi Joel,

Well what can I say – Absolutely brilliant my friend.

I lost count of how many compliments were made about your performance – everyone truly enjoyed your music and you did us proud. I will definitely recommend you to friends and family, and I hope we get the chance to listen to you again.

Here are some things that you won’t have to worry about if you hire me:

Volume level – whether you’re worried about the neighbours, or if you just want some laid-back music so that you and your guests can talk to each other, sometimes a full band is just too loud. That’s especially true if the band has a drummer (as anyone who’s ever played in a band knows, drummers don’t have a volume control!). Book me and you’ll get some great live music, with no need to worry about the noise level.

Space – a band takes up a fair bit of floor space, so it can sometimes be difficult to squeeze everyone in! Because I use a small, very-high-quality sound system, I can fit easily into small spaces. Even our duo line-up takes up hardly any room – so we won’t get in the way.

Price – book a full band and you’re basically paying 3, 4, or more peoples’ wages… before you know it, the cost can really add up. With my solo or duo act, you’ll get great musical entertainment at a fraction of the cost. And because you’re booking direct with me, there are no agent’s fees to pay either.

Songs for Everyone

Whether you’re getting married or just throwing a party for friends and family, it’s likely that you’ll be inviting guests of many different ages. Parents, children, grandparents… they’ll all have their favourite songs they want to hear, so it’s important to have a variety of songs to keep everyone happy.

My set list ranges from:

So no matter what age your guests are, there should be plenty of songs they’ll know and love!

(Most people don’t just want to hear the songs they grew up with, either… I’ve seen plenty of 12-year-olds asking for Beatles songs, and 70-year-olds asking for Pharrell… yet another reason why it’s good to have a wide variety of music)

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for playing on Saturday night at my 40th birthday party, I really enjoyed your performance and so did the guests.

100% Live – Just Voice and Guitar

Unlike some singers, I don’t play along to backing tracks.

Why?

For me, a big part of the excitement of hearing (and playing) live music is that no two performances are ever exactly the same. Like a picture that’s drawn by hand, each one is slightly different to the next. A backing track, on the other hand, will sound exactly the same every time you press “play” (and most backing tracks sound really cheesy, too, like listening to bad karaoke).

The truth is that people who learn to play the guitar properly don’t really need backing tracks. With 6 guitar strings plus 1 human voice, that’s more than enough raw materials to make some great music!

Professional & Friendly

If you’re paying someone to do a service for you, you should expect them to be professional.

But when you’re talking about musicians, what does “professional” really mean? Obviously, you need somebody who can sing and play the guitar to a good standard – that’s certainly a good start!

Joel played at our wedding in Sept 2013. We can’t recommend him enough! He always responded to phone calls and emails prior to the wedding and even learnt a couple of new songs for us. Nothing was too much trouble!

However, there are other things that I believe really set a “professional” apart:

I can fit easily into small spaces!

* £5 million of cover will be enough for the vast majority of wedding venues. In the unlikely event that your venue asks for more, we can discuss a quote that includes upgraded insurance.

You played a big part in making the day one of the best of our lives. Hopefully given a suitable occasion you can make more amazing music for us!
