Function Work & Testimonials


“Versatile, multi-talented & unobtrusive, Nick has played Cowes Week Firework Night each year since 2014 to huge acclaim.   Nick tailors his offering to the location & clientele. Laid back or upbeat, background or full party mode, Nick’s your man.”

Angy Lewis, The Boathouse, Cowes, IOW.

When not performing  my own material at music venues and festivals around the country,  I regularly play at weddings and corporate functions where the brief is to enhance the atmosphere with with a mix of carefully chosen songs and instrumental pieces that lean heavily on jazz, blues, and even classical influences . . .  all played at a sensitive volume level that allows guests to enjoy both the music and their conversation.

Click below for a constantly updated list of some of the songs I cover together with a list of some of the artists I cover but this is by no means definitive.  If there’s something you’d like me to have a go at then please let me know.

I love getting new suggestions – especially the ones that aren’t obvious!

 “ . . . a true professional and always reliable.   I can’t recommend Nick enough and look forward to hearing his music again at our next event.”

Rebekah Cummings.  The Three Tuns, Bransgore
