Live Music for Weddings & Events
I perform live at weddings. parties and corporate events.
My live set features just me and my guitar (and sometimes a ukelele too). Unlike many performers these days, I don't use any backing tracks so everything you hear is me. Take a listen to some of my recordings to some of my recordings.
I have a wide repertoire of songs from the last 60 years ranging from jazz and swing through to contemporary pop. My set is bound to include some of your favourites. If there's a particular song you'd like to me to perform, please contact me to discuss your choice. I'm always up for learning new songs! Take a look at my Set List to get an idea of the songs I perform. I also play classical guitar which is perfect for more formal events such as wedding ceremonies.
When it comes to weddings, I know that each bride and groom are different. I'm sure you'll have a clear idea of the type of music you'd like to hear on your big day. Perhaps you might want me to sing during your ceremony (especially if you've commissioned me to write a song for you) or during a drinks reception or the wedding breakfast..... Whatever your requirements are, get in touch and we can discuss how I can help you make your special day perfect!
If you're looking for something a bit different, I also perform as part of an acoustic duo, Milligan & Smith, with pianist Paul Milligan. Take a listen to some of our performances.
Every wedding is different so I will provide you with a personalised quote based on your requirements.
As a guideline, I usually play a minimum of two 1 hour sets for £250. For this price I would be available for a period of 3 hours to perform at either the wedding breakfast or the early hours of an evening reception. Recorded music can be played between sets. (I can take care of this or you can provide music of your choice e.g. on an ipod played through my PA system.) Alternatively, if you just want me to perform during your ceremony, this would cost around £150.
I can be flexible so if this format doesn’t fit your plans, please get in touch to let me know your requirements and I will provide you with a quote. I am very happy to play during your ceremony, especially if you have commissioned me to compose an original song for your big day. I can be available for the whole day if you require, up to 10pm.
I will supply my own PA system. The only requirement from the venue is a power supply. All electrical equipment is PAT tested and I have public liability insurance of £10m.
I am based in Doncaster and travel costs within 30 miles are included. Travel further afield is charged at 50p per mile.
Once a booking is made, I will reserve the date you require for 7 days pending the receipt of your deposit, usually 20% (minimum £50) of the total fee. The balance is due 4 weeks before your wedding date.
