Sessions, weddings and functions
If you need a guitarist for a live or studio session I have the skills, equipment and experience you need. Having previously played for a variety of artists from the UK, USA and Europe, I can guarantee a professional and high quality service.
I also have the ability to record online guitar sessions from home using protools and send the files via email. This is an ideal option for those willing to avoid the costs that mount up during the recording process, or for getting hold of a lot of guitar loop samples very easily. With an online guitar session there are no travel fees or studio fees; simply send a request with any recordings you have so far, and as much detail as you can write about the sound you want, and you'll get a reply with a quote within 24 hours. I'll then record a few different interpretations of your track and forward them to you. And if you're not happy with the first batch of takes, I'll keep going free of charge until you are!

¦ Weddings and Functions ¦
If you’re planning a wedding, a corporate event or any other kind of party and you want live music for your guests, give me a call. I have done everything from playing a bride’s favourite song as she walks down the aisle, to entertaining hundreds of exhausted-but-happy Tough Mudder competitors after a ten mile run.
I can offer an upbeat and lively set, featuring both modern and older rock, pop and soul songs to get your guests singing and dancing. Or should you be looking for something a little bit more low key for a drinks or dinner event, I can perform a set of folk and jazz tunes, either with vocals or as guitar instrumentals to provide a relaxed atmosphere. Live packages start from £220. Get in touch for a quote and see what I can do for you.
As standard I include…
-2 hours of live music, split any way you want them.
- One song of your choosing (eg first dance) learnt with no extra charge
- Complimentary laptop DJ set
- PA and lights
You can also ask me about optional extras such as…
- Additional sets
- Additional female vocals
- Three piece rock band (2 x male vocals, drums, bass)
All our guests have complimented on what a lovely addition to the day this made and what a brilliant singer Martin was. Thank you Martin, you were professional but extremely friendly. Thanks again from Mr &Mrs Newsome
