James the Guiitarist - Wedding Guitarist

This musician is a professional solo guitarist of contemporary and classical music, available for weddings and other private functions. An experienced and
accomplished player, he strives to create an elegant and stylish atmosphere that is fitting for any special occasion. His repertoire is extensive and incorporates a range of well-known contemporary and classical pieces, to suit all ages and tastes.

The style of playing is non-intrusive so it can be heard and appreciated but not be overpowering, and his wide range of musical styles varies from Spanish classical to acoustic blues. Where a lively, less formal feel is required, some pieces, where appropriate, are performed on electric as well as classical guitar.

Based in Derbyshire but is prepared to travel, and can be booked for weddings, corporate functions, birthday or anniversary celebrations, blessings, civil partnerships, or by hotels or restaurants wishing to have live music for their diners. He is also a teacher of music and has performed on BBC and local radio as well as doing some other live performance work in theatres. He has been playing guitar professionally for many years as well as being a long-standing resident guitarist at an established and leading hotel in Derbyshire.

James the Guiitarist - Wedding Guitarist Feedback

Hi Geoff, We had a lovely time at our wedding on the 6th and in answer to your questions:Yes he was everything we'd hoped for (only wish we had more time to sit and listen to him but lots of people said how brilliant it was having him there!).He was smartly dressed and punctual and knew what he was doing and where to go so we didn't have to worry about sorting him out which took the pressure off us. The booking process was very easy and was great considering we booked so close to the date.All in all he helped make our day even more special; he was a great guitarist, very friendly and professional and we'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for similar entertainment for their event. Thanks again!
