Geoff: Jazz Guitarist ref: 6133
Geoff has been playing and teaching guitar professionally for over 30 years. Over these years, he has travelled as a working (session) musician across the UK and Europe.
Geoff started his professional guitar playing career in bands that worked in London night clubs and most of the city's leading hotels. He was also employed as a session guitarist working in numerous recording studios. He then spent a year in Sweden playing lead guitar with one of Scandinavia's top groups whose recording of 'New Orleans' went to number three in the Swedish Charts.
Geoff now plays at special events such as wedding receptions, Civil Ceremonies, anniversaries, birthdays and corporate events. Generally, he works across the Home Counties (Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Middlesex) but has no trouble travelling further afield within the UK.
Geoff's repertoire ranges from romantic ballads through to more up tempo pieces with music by Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, Peggy Lee, Bobby Darin, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Celine Dion, Adele, Eva Cassidy, Whitney Houston & The Beatles etc.
Although Geoff is a solo guitarist, he always has his superb backing group with him pre-recorded.
|Wedding||Thank you so much to help make my daughter's day perfect. Geoff played at my daughter's wedding reception at the Oxford Belfry, Milton Common, Thame. I left it to Geoff to decide what he played and how loud. He got it right on both counts. The courtyard at the Belfry sounded amazing.|
|Birthday||Geoff provided the afternoon's music at my father's 60th birthday celebration. He was very professional and friendly. His chilled, laid back music was a total hit with the guests, many of them commenting on what a great way to start a garden party.|
|Party||Everyone at our Golden Wedding Party praised your music, our phone did not stop ringing for the next two days regarding your performance. Well done, your music was fantastic. We will be in touch and will recommend you to anyone else that has an event. Good luck Geoff, great jazz guitarist.|
