* Repertoire offers something for everyone spanning music from 50s and 60s Pop to current tracks from artists such as Daft Punk, Bruno Mars and Kings Of Leon! 

John has been playing guitar and singing since the age of 14. Learning his craft playing in bars and pubs around the northwest he quickly learnt how to entertain an audience using just an acoustic guitar and his voice. He has had the privilege of playing, and singing with some of the top session players in the country having hosted open mic nights in the heart of Liverpool’s cultural quarter.

John is an outstanding guitarist who has performed, often at short notice, in a wide range of party and functions bands. These have included folk based bands, funk and soul bands, pop and rock bands and as a singer in church as part of wedding services.

Amazing acoustic sets!!

5 stars - John Gough are Highly Recommended
booked John Gough for their Wedding in North Yorkshire May 2023

“John was fantastic from the moment of booking, until the end of his sets, which our entire wedding party definitely did not want to happen. Cue the ‘one more song’ chant John was very professional over email, flexible to our timings, learnt some songs on our request and had a very extensive track list- the perfect mixture for a wedding! Thank you so much John, we loved every minute. You truly are amazing at what you do! ”

Top class musician!!!

5 stars - John Gough are Highly Recommended
booked John Gough for their Wedding in Cheshire

“I had been thorough in looking for the right acoustic singer guitarist for our wedding day, and had exhausted a few different entertainment websites only to come across Alive Network - so straightforward with great variety, plus easy communication I couldn’t recommend John Gough enough if you’re wanting a fantastic upbeat musician that gets so many guests singing and dancing. Not only that, our timings were held a bit back and he displayed complete understanding and professionalism. We were also impressed at his communication leading up to the big day, he reached out with empathy to make sure we were happy with song choices & to confirm things. A big thank you from Shaun and I for being the best entertainment at our wedding evening.”
