Great music, great guy

5 stars - Marcus are Highly Recommended
booked Marcus for their Wedding in London September 2022

“Marcus performed at our wedding this autumn, and we honestly couldn't have been happier with the experience. We knew prior to booking that his music sounded great and that his style was exactly what we were looking for, but we were so pleased to find that he was also a fantastically kind and understanding chap. From learning two new songs for us, to his astonishing patience with us (we're a pair of control freaks!), we couldn't have wished for anything more. Communication was clear and incredibly speedy, and yet he was also flexible to go with the flow on the day itself. Thank you so much Marcus, we really appreciate everything you did to make our day one to remember. Hope to have an opportunity to experience your music again some time!”

Full Biography

Singer-guitarist Marcus has a broad repertoire encompassing rock, pop, indie and soul from the '60s to today, from the Beatles to Bruno Mars. 

Having been classically trained on the piano since childhood, and then picking up the guitar aged 16, Marcus has been involved in music for over 20 years. Having played in several bands in London and Birmingham, and performed his own material around London at legendary venues such as the Troubadour, he has been performing for nearly a decade.

Marcus can boast having played over 200 gigs over the last two years – many of them private events and weddings. He mostly travels over the South East of England, but can go further afield where required. 

Marcus is perhaps most at home playing downbeat, romantic numbers, but is well renowned for being able to play a given song in several different ways, and is more than capable of getting a crowd dancing! He likes to tailor his performance to the event, and is always happy to learn a special song or two for the day if appropriate! With consistently great reviews from clients, and a reputation for good communication and professionalism, Marcus looks forward to sculpting his musical performance to fit your event perfectly!
