Full Description
I am a double award winning musician based in Essex and I have over 15 years experience performing as a musician and have played at some of the UK's most distinguished venues. I have built up a hugely successful cover act where I have been booked in big and small venues across the UK and event worldwide including France, Italy, Croatia and Thailand. Armed with just my acoustic guitar and a microphone, I believe my unique blend of popular cover songs make my act both distinctive and original. This is the reason why I have performed over 500 times since I started this project in 2008, which I think speaks highly. I offer entertainment through all parts of a Wedding day such as the Ceremony, Drinks Reception, Wedding Breakfast and Evening, where I play live sets and also provide a DJ service. Sometimes I am even booked to perform for the whole day building through to a crescendo as the day goes on and have every guest singing at the top of their lungs and dancing like a silly person :-) I've recently added an electronic kick drum to my act which really adds an extra dimension to the sound and used when I do my lively evening sets. I have been honoured to win 2 Wedding Industry Awards for Best Wedding Act (solo or duo) in 2012 and 2015, and be shortlisted for 2016. As well as being Shortlisted in the Essex Wedding Awards recently too. As a musician and member of the Musicians Union, I have gained valuable experience learning this trade, which I feel has elevated my level of performance to that of the very highest quality and second to none. You really have to see a live performance before you can compare me with other similar musicians. My equipment is of the highest calibre which is PAT tested every year. I am also covered by Public Liability.

Everyone commented on how good you were
Hi Jamie, Hope you are well? Sorry I have not been in touch - we got back from Honeymoon yesterday. Firstly, thank you for doing such an amazing job at our Wedding! Everyone commented on how good you were, and a few people have said they wanted you at their parties etc - I think Toms uncle may have even spoken to you about this? Thanks.

We met you at my cousins wedding and straight away
Evening Jamie. Well firstly let me apologise for not emailing you sooner! We have just been in a little love bubble and just got back from our little familymoon! What can we say Jamie... Thank you so much for your performance at our wedding you absolutely smashed it! Starting with our first dance made it truly magical and then to carry on with everyone up dancing you really did an amazing job. We did have a lot of guests comment on how great you were! There is nothing quite like a live singer to dance the night away to and to have you be part of our day was so special to us, we met you at my cousins wedding and straight away knew you were the singer for us! And you did keep to your high standard throughout! You are a truly amazing singer/artist/performer and Dean and I are very grateful for you making our day absolutely amazing, one we will never forget! Hope you are well and we hope to see you again. Good luck with everything Jamie and i'm sure I will be in contact in the future. All the best Jamie.

You cared about us - you cared about the music
Hi Jamie, just to say a massive 'thank you' from Hannah and I for contributing to the most memorable day of our lives. Your prior diligence in understanding exactly what we were after and tailoring the day as such was spot on, and this is no more exemplified than in this video, the only one I took on the day... You went out of your way to learn a song that we requested, you got everybody there engaged and singing along, and this - and your whole performance - to my mind set you head and shoulders above someone who just 'turns up': and as a consequence it was also a million times more memorable... You cared about us, you cared about the music. Legend. Thank you.

Neighbour sat in the garden all evening listening
Morning Jamie, just wanted to say a massive thank you for Saturday. Sincere apologies for not being able to spend some time with you chatting and getting to know you, the day was just a bit hectic, but your professionalism and general performance was second to none and I’m sure this isn’t the first time you have heard this but you made the evening just fantastic. I lost count of the number of guests who said you were amazing, we even had a letter through the door the following morning from a neighbour who said she sat in the garden all evening listening to the music because she thought your voice was brilliant! All the best.

What is your most memorable wedding?

It would be easy to say the weddings where I have been booked to play at exotic venues in far away countries are the most memorable. They are great. But I'd probably say a wedding at Blake Hall in 2012 for a couple who happen to live down the road from me. It was a day of moving inside/outside due to the unsettled weather, but the couple and their family and friends were all lovely. I'm pleased to now call them friends.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Original, Professional, Excellent, Friendly, Committed.

What about your business are you most proud of?

My repertoire of over 380 songs!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Make sure the supplier you choose is as passionate about your wedding and committed as you are. A good wedding supplier will be a very busy supplier and it's important that they give you the feeling that your wedding is their most important wedding, rather than too busy to give you the attention you deserve.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Individual picture for all guest's at their seat was a really lovely idea, as was the personal message for each guest too at another friend's wedding.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

It usually starts with an email enquiry. I like to be quick to respond and be thorough with my information and pricing as there are many parts of the day I can perform at. I offer to meet with the couple if they wish to, preferably at a public performance if one is upcoming so that they can hear me and chat to you before confirming a booking. I will send a Contract once all the details have been confirmed on both sides as this I feel gives security and confidence to the booking. Closer to the wedding we will have an indepth telephone conversation where we confirm all the arrangements and talk about particular song requests.

What makes a romantic first dance?

When a man keeps his focus on his date and gives his undivided attention during the whole date, as well as open doors, takes their coat. If you doesn't get you a second date after that then maybe you should've considered an alternative to McDonalds!

What is your number one floor-filler?

Currently it's Shut Up & Dance, but A Little Respect always gets the chaps and the girls up singing at the top of their voices.

Which band from the past would you most like to have been part of?


What is the soundtrack to your life?

'What's the Story Morning Glory?' was probably the most important record for me as that's what got me in to learning the Guitar
