Solo Guitarist for all occasions.
We booked Oliver quite last minute to play during reception drinks at our wedding, and it was perfect, we could not fault him. So many of our guests commented on how good Oliver was and it really made the recpetion drinks that extra bit special. He music was just right for the occasion and the outdoor venue Thank you again for making our special day even better

Oliver played two sets of solo background music at our Orientation event for MBA students. We were extremely impressed with his performance and will definitely be asking for his help again in the future. Thank you Oliver!

At last minute we found Ollie for our leaving party BBQ. with only 24 hours notice he turned up 1/2 before start time was set up and playing well on time. He made the perfect background to a very pleasant evening - good quality amped acoustic guitar. Thanks Ollie!
