5 stars - Alex Lloyd Williams are Highly Recommended booked Alex Lloyd Williams for their event

“Alex played Classical and Spanish guitar at our wedding party in September this year. From the moment we booked Alex he was very professional and wanted to give us a really positive experience. Alex was easily contactable and asked us if there were any special requests that we would like and he made a point of visiting the venue prior to our event. On the day Alex was very punctual and set up without any fuss or bother. The music was beautiful and perfect for our party and a lot of our guests commented on the music during and after the event. Alex played at perfect volume to be able to hear and enjoy but not drown out conversation. Having Alex added such a nice personal touch to our party and we shall be certainly using him again at future events and I would very highly recommend him. Charlotte and Luis Hernandez”

5 stars - Alex Lloyd Williams are Highly Recommended booked Alex Lloyd Williams for their event

“Hi Gemma, Thanks for your email. Alive Network was fabulous during the process of my booking and I would happily recommend you in the future. Alex was wonderful at our wedding on the 15th May 2010. He played during the ceremony and it created a magical atmosphere, I was so high on adrenaline that it was so hard to focus on anything but my husband but the music was truly memorable. He continued to play on the stone terrace in the sunshine as we drank champagne and had photographs; everyone commented how good he was. A true talent! Thanks again Love Mr and Mrs Dale ”

Full Biography

Alex is a professional guitarist teaching and performing in Staffordshire and beyond for the last ten years prior to which he was based in the North West. He has performed at many weddings functions and arts events: Preston Guildhall Theatre; Lichfield music festival; Shugborough Hall; Staffordshire County Show; Stafford Gatehouse Theatre; and supported John Otway.

Alex has been playing for 30 years; starting comparatively late for a classical player aged 13 he nevertheless took to the instrument very quickly. He then took Grade 5 as his first exam within two years and quickly went on to learning Grade 8 and recital pieces. He simultaneously built up experience in differing styles of music and has been in various bands playing styles such as rock pop indie and reggae. The first wedding he played at was that of a pupil who asked for an arrangement of Van Morrison’s romantic classic Have I Told You Lately? More unusual requests have included playing the Bridal March and Here Comes the Bride in the style of Jimi Hendrix! So provided enough notice is given arrangements by special request are no problem.

His classical repertoire generally includes the main styles of renaissance/baroque (eg. Dowland and Bach);  Latin-American (Lauro and Villa-Lobos); Classical Romantic Spanish (Tarrega and Llobet); and various other composers. He has also started to include jazz in his repertoire played either on the classical or on a traditional jazz guitar and one or two folk tunes such as Bert Jansch’s arrangement of Black Water Side. Alex is constantly working on broadening his repertoire across these styles.

Testimonials

"A versatile guitarist through a range of styles from classical to jazz. Alex is technically brilliant but also plays with magnificent fluid feel. He captivated the room with his stunning set. I loved his Bert Jansch covers and have already booked him again."
Pete Wearn Promoter of Live in Starbucks Stafford.

"Alex Lloyd Williams played classical guitar at our wedding. Alex not only played superb classical guitar but he provided the perfect relaxed atmosphere for all our guests to enjoy themselves and mingle with a smile on their face.
I would highly recommend Mr Lloyd Williams for any such event."
