Midlands Wedding Musician

Hello and welcome to my site. If you are here looking for a musician for your wedding, congratulations on your engagement!

I play a range of music from across the decades so you can be sure I will have something for everyone. I also take requests of all kinds and will do my best to accomodate, so if your special songs aren't on my list I can still make sure they get played on your day. Check out my Set List page for a pretty comprehensive (and ever changing) list!

Playing a bride and groom's first dance is one of the biggest honours I get, so I'd be happy to learn and play your song. Because this is such an important moment in your wedding day, I'll send you a video of me playing the song before the day so you can decide if you like it or not. I won't be offended if you decide you prefer the original!

I also run a small studio and take commissions on recording and songwriting, so we can do something really special for your big day.

I'm a trained and respected sound engineer, so you can rest assured that the music on your wedding day will sound highly professional. I'm also fully insured and all my equipment is anually PAT tested.

Testimonials

Amazing performance all day/evening yesterday!!!! Brilliant!!! Well done you!

Your sound was so professional I had to check it out to make sure it was real! Would definitely recommend you.

Comments from guests at wedding at The Mount Hotel, Wolverhampton - June 2016

Sam played a set at our wedding…and what a set it was! There are few words that can adequately describe how amazingly awesome he was and how amazingly grateful we are. He got everyone in the party spirit and he soon had 120 people jumping up and down singing along. It is the thing that all our guests are still talking about a few months on. Sam also did a version of 'I'm Gonna Be' for our first dance – we were so touched that he took the time to put it together for our big day and his performance was perfect. Sam is a complete diamond and I'm so glad I went in for that coffee when he was playing a gig.

Bethan Thomson, Married November 2014, Pendrell Hall, Codsall Wood.


your performance on the day far exceeded our expectations! The music was thoroughly enjoyed by guests of all ages; from small children to the most senior (at 94 years of age). We loved your renditions of favourite songs and in particular it was incredible to walk down the aisle and to end the ceremony with live music rather than a recording. Guests enjoyed requests and we were extremely happy when you agreed to learn new songs which had meaning for us and our families and friends. The only criticism was a very positive one - my Uncle felt that we were not paying sufficient attention to your music - with the photographs etc - to be honest I would have enjoyed the chance to sit and listen myself! It turned out to be a gloriously warm day and you responded to this on the spot by setting up on the terrace!

Jane Cerisa, Married September 2012, The Mount Hotel, Tettenhall.
