About

For the last fifteen years I have dedicated myself to performing at weddings, private functions and parties along the South Coast. I have 28 years of experience in live performance and a wide repertoire of pop, soul, jazz and dance music. I offer a professional and friendly service.

I hold full public liability insurance and all of my equipment is PAT tested.

I studied music at Poole College and subsequently Chichester College of Arts, Science and Technology specialising in popular music. Since then I have performed at hundreds of weddings and private functions both locally and nationally. I have played alongside DJ sets in nightclubs and at corporate events along with performing with many bands. With experience performing abroad in Koh Samui Thailand, Taiwan and Europe.
Some previous clients include: The Royal Navy, AFC Bournemouth, Cirque du Soleil, British Telecom, Habitat UK, Lloyds Bank, Bournemouth Tourism Awards and Martin & Co.

In November 2016 I won the Dorset Wedding Supplier Award for Live Musical Entertainment having also been a finalist for three years.

As a solo act I perform alongside professionally recorded backing tracks and my Bose PA System. I can set up my equipment to create a background atmosphere for drinks receptions, through a wedding breakfast or an evening function. I also have an up-tempo set for more of a party atmosphere and can provide a larger PA system and lighting if required.

I can perform alongside a DJ or offer a package with a DJ and percussion for the evening.

I can also offer a female vocal and saxophone duo Vox&Sax. Playing Pop, Soul, Jazz, Acid Jazz, Disco and Dance classics. We will tailor our sets for your occasion. Performing for daytime or evening celebrations as background music or lively evening entertainment.
