Where Is My Mind?



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!
Jade, Wedding
Simply put Marcus was absolutely sensational. We had booked Marcus for a 3 hour slot at our wedding to play to our guests as they arrived at the venue, and to play in the background during our wedding breakfast. His communication throughout from the day we booked him was excellent. He arrived early, no fuss, set up and started to play. To be honest I didn't even see him arrive he just did. He started to play in the venue but as the weather was so hot everyone was outside, so he just came out played outside and performed again no fuss. We sat down for our wedding breakfast and he performed in the background. Not overpowering just very nice background music. His repertoire of songs is first class and includes loads of well known songs by big artists. Marcus performs these songs with his own spin perfectly. We had also asked at short notice if he could learn one or two other songs to play on the day which he did no problem at all. One Man, One Guitar, One fantastic Voice. If you want to introduce some class to your event then you must book this man. Thank you Marcus for helping us make our day a truly memorable one. Nat & Glenn x (10 / 10)
Natalie & Glenn Hildyard, Wedding
After researching various places for a solo guitarist/singer for our private function we found Marcus. From initial contact through to performing on the day he was accommodating, helpful and an excellent performer. He even learned new material especially for us and played several sets into the night. I don't normally give such a high rating for things but I am unable to find fault with everything he did and all of our guests commented on how great he was so the rating is justly deserved and I have no hesitation in recommending him and would certainly use him again. Thank you Marcus.
Gordon Mitchell, Private Garden Party
Dear Marcus, It was a pleasure to have you sing and play at my Birthday Party. Your voice and tone was absolutely perfect for my event. Everybody thought that you were fabulous young and old. Lucy in her twenties was amazed getting you to play Snow Patrol with zero practice and Hildergard 90+ loved your song choice and guitar playing !! My boys in their 30s thought you were super cool and I was thrilled with my special songs and a rendition of Happy Birthday. It was lovely and we will definitely book you again. With very kind wishes for much success in your career and many more happy memories
Jenny Lane, Private party
Marcus was professional and accommodating prior to the wedding, timely in arrival and setup and outstanding in his performance. He selected our favourite songs to perform and even learnt one for us. Thank you very much Marcus for making our day so special. We would highly recommend him for any wedding or party.
Georgie and Oli, Wedding
From initial contact through to the event, Marcus was the ultimate professional. He learnt four new songs that we were particularly keen to have as part of our set list, we were not disappointed – in fact I don’t think we would have known they were new to him, if we hadn’t asked for them. Additionally, we were able to choose from his repertoire and the order for each set flowed well. An added bonus was that Marcus was able to have background music playing between sessions which was perfect. I have no hesitation in recommending Marcus for your event.
Jane Worthington, Barrow Upon Soar
Marcus kept us entertained brilliantly all evening with his large repertoire of favourite songs. He arrived early with his entire pa system and was friendly efficient to deal with throughout. I would thoroughly recommend Marcus if you are looking for a troubadour that you can trust, who will perform beautifully and almost certainly leave your crowd wanting more!
Ned Trier, staff party in a warehouse
Marcus made an excellent performance at our wedding. Came earlier and had background music during the breakfast reception. His voice is fantastic and the guests love it. We had him for the entire evening and collaborated together regarding the repertoire. Highly recommend Marcus for any type of event. Thank you for making our wedding reception special!
Ioana & James, Wedding
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!
Mel and Si, Wedding
Marcus helped me arrange something very special for my friend's 25th Birthday. Something we will both remember for a long time! He was very accommodative to my requests which was extremely helpful! His performance was beautiful :) Thanks Marcus!
