Full Description
Hi I'm Marcus, an experienced singer-songwriter who has performed regularly (400+ times) around London, South East and further afield for the last four years, including 50+ weddings. I play a mixture of popular cover songs from 1960-2020, mostly in the pop and rock genres, but sometimes with a touch of soul and jazz. I have a repertoire of 150+ songs. I can play to accompany the ceremony, quiet background music for dinner, the first dance, romantic ballads for drinks & canapés outside, or whatever else you need. Alternatively, I can provide lively upbeat material for later on to get people dancing. My one man show can be a surprisingly effective (and far more affordable) replacement for a band! I try to be really flexible in accommodating exactly what you want for the day - and am happy to consult over video beforehand to make sure we get it spot on! I'm always happy to learn a song or two for no extra cost, if you would like something special with a more personal touch for your ceremony / first dance. I am fully insured and happy to travel anywhere in the UK or further afield. Please check out some of my many outstanding reviews for an insight into how I can make your day extra special!

My goodness you sound even better in real life!
My goodness you sound even better in real life! I enjoyed hearing all the songs. Thank you so much for learning the requested songs you sounded truly amazing and I really appreciated you  changing the order and saving the songs till we were in the room. Many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed your singing and I have passed on your details. Thank you for being so patient and your performance was spot on both sets of songs perfect.

Hi Marcus, we just wanted to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding last Saturday!! We loved the music you played and our guests thought you were fantastic too. Bella loved you and your guitar! You really were a great addition to our relaxed day! Thanks for also being super chilled about the running of the day, it was really helpful  and made for a stress free day! Thank you for all your contact before the wedding too! It really was appreciated and made the whole processes super easy! Thanks again Marcus!

Marcus was AMAZING
Where do I begin. I am a self confessed perfectionist but when I started planning our wedding I was looking for a singer during our drinks reception and wedding breakfast. Marcus was AMAZING. If you want perfection but are unsure or in doubt, book Marcus and you will not be let down. He was truly brilliant. Set up on time, all of our guests commented on his performance and how amazing he was. We were gutted when it had to end. Thank you Marcus, you were brilliant!

He bridged the gap from day to evening perfectly
Marcus was absolutely fantastic. He managed to sing in the background yet fill the marquee with his smooth and mellow tones. He bridged the gap from day to evening perfectly. I will definitely be using Marcus again at other events Hollie & Matt’s wedding

Marcus was fantastic, a great choice
Marcus was fantastic, a great choice.  We received lots of comments about how good he was, especially helping to set the relaxed mood early on prior to the ceremony & smoothly filling in as the bride was delayed for a while.  He covered some of our favourite songs which will now live long in the memory.  Thank you Marcus.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

An Indian wedding where I performed in front of approximately 500 people - my biggest audience to date!

What about your business are you most proud of?

I am extremely proud to have made the transition to working as a full time musician in 2017 and never looked back! I'm often told that my performance has really made people's day - which is backed by my 100% record of positive feedback, and some of the incredible comments I've had. Being able to see how happy this makes people is something money can't buy, and is the most rewarding thing about being a performer.

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

Regarding the music - make sure you have the appropriate thing for every moment of the day. Visualise what it will actually be like, and how your guests will interact with / interpret it, and feel free to ask any questions so you can get an accurate picture!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

First contact is made via either email or phone, where we discuss the day, answer any questions, and quote you a price for what it is you have in mind. After this, we would typically discuss the finer details and make sure all logistical concerns are pinned down as far in advance of the wedding day as possible. I will then get down to learning any specific song(s) which the couple have requested, and can always send you a quick recording of the song(s) in question to make sure you are happy with the arrangement. I'm also happy to jump on a video call at any time before the day to discuss anything necessary, so you can get a feel for me in person. If you like, I can also give you a list of public places (usually pubs) where I will be performing leading up to the wedding date, so you can see me perform in person if you wish.

What is your number one floor-filler?

Probably Valerie (Amy Winehouse version), Faith (George Michael), or Mr Brightside (The Killers).
