Solo Musician For Events
As a solo musician for events my aim is to make sure I create the perfect atmosphere for you. As both a singing guitarist and a DJ, I offer a large range of musical options throughout your event. With the acoustic and DJ option it cuts out having to look for multiple entertainers and means you deal with me and only me. I can start with an acoustic ambient atmosphere – possibly for reception drinks or dinner. As the evening develops I can head over to the decks to get your guests partying on the dance floor.
Are you putting on a drinks reception, private party or corporate event and need some acoustic music in the background? I provide music for all of these types of events and more. As a solo musician for events I’ve performed at some beautiful occasions around the UK and Europe. And at all of them I have tried to create unique sets of music that will stay with you well after the day. Do you need me to DJ background music or a mix of pop, house, EDM, drum n bass, 60s, 70s 80s, etc?
Having a solo musician at your event is perfect for those with limited space, a smaller budget or those wanting an unobtrusive performer. I find my solo sets are well received during reception drinks, at corporate dinners and at small private parties. And go down equally well looking for a raving party.

What are Clients Saying?
“My husband and I had a joint birthday tea dance last week at the Grimsdyke Hotel. Sheldon provided fabulous jazz and soft music on guitar and keyboard during the tea. After this he became our DJ and had everybody up and dancing for 2 hours! I have had so many wonderful comments from my friends and family all citing the great job Sheldon did.
I would not hesitate to have Sheldon supply the music for any parties or functions we have in the future.”
Norman and Amber – Birthday party – November 2017
“My eyes and ears genuinely lit up the day I found Sheldon, he had the most professional website, he was passionate and tech savvy enough to have video blogs. For a future bride to bride I loved watching them and picturing my own big day. It wasn’t just that though because the first time I emailed Sheldon, I had an instant and helpful response and within a day, we were speaking on the phone. He knew exactly what to say and even explained that rather than paying for a DJ, he could do it all in one. This made perfect sense to me, as my experience juggling suppliers for events, I was desperate to hire one pro to take over one element of the wedding. And choosing Sheldon to organise the audio was the best decision I could have made.
What would I rate Sheldon out of ten? I couldn’t he was too fantastic!! All I wish is I could do it all again and I would hire him all over again.”
Tim and Cat – Wedding – August 2017
“Sheldon performed 3 45 minute sets at our wedding, our first dance and then was our DJ for the rest of the evening. From our first conversation, Sheldon was fantastic. He even learnt a song from a YouTube video for our first dance and it was perfect! All our guests have commented how good he was. The choice of songs was perfect and he had everyone dancing until the end of the night. Highly recommend!
Thank you again for everything. You helped make our day perfect and so special!”
Larna and Jamie – Wedding – July 2017
“Our wedding was an intimate occasion in a small hotel in Henley on Thames. Sheldon was an integral part of this, playing and singing live for our reception drinks and later DJ for our party. His live act was outstanding- creating a convivial atmosphere for our reception and complimented by many of our guests. We appreciated Sheldon’s versatility and helpfulness – filling in gaps when needed with great background music for our civil ceremony and over dinner, changing plans due to bad weather and the time he took to understand what we were looking for before the day. We think Sheldon was a real ‘find’ and would recommend him to anyone! ”
Sonal and Jeff – Wedding – July 2017
I would like to say a massive thank you for your performance at mine and Nicola’s wedding – I believe the two sets that you played in the courtyard really made the wedding, and is one of the main things that people have been commenting on. Having our first dance sung rather than played by a DJ was really special, and your level of professionalism was second to none.
I would recommend your services to anybody having a wedding, or any other special occasion, and once again would like to thank you for making our day that little bit more special.
Chris and Nicola – Wedding – June 2017 – Singing guitarist
Just a quick note to say thank you for your performance on Sunday afternoon at my engagement party. I was surprised by how many people kept coming up to me and asking about you because they were all really impressed with the performance. Although I knew you were good which is why i booked you in the first place! ????
You set the tone perfectly and completed the atmosphere to make a great engagement party. Really can’t praise you enough.
Dan and Laura – Engagement Party – June 2017 – Singing guitarist
Sheldon performed at Laura’s and my wedding, in the south of France in May 2017. He played guitar, sang vocals and DJ-ed, for the duration of the festivities.The whole day was an incredible success, and Sheldon was an integral part of that. In addition to his musical and DJing abilities, he is extremely communicative, helpful and adaptable. His experience and calm demeanour helped things run more smoothly.
Throughout the whole process, pre-, during and post-wedding, he was really easy to deal with. I have no hesitation in recommending using Sheldon, if you need a DJ and/or musician.
David and Laura – Wedding – South of France, May 2017 – Singing guitarist and DJ
We booked Sheldon as a compromise between having a band and a DJ at our wedding. Sheldon met with us beforehand to discuss what music we did (and didn’t) like, and to get an idea of how the event was due to run. On the day Sheldon took care of music from start to finish, playing our chosen tracks during the ceremony, performing some live songs to get the party started and DJ-ing until late to keep the dancing crowd happy. We had positive feedback from our guests and several asked whether Sheldon was a personal friend, which we hope he took as a compliment!
Helen and Phil – Wedding – December 2016 – Solo, DJ live and DJ
My husband and I hired Sheldon to perform throughout our wedding day in September. Sheldon was a pleasure to work with on the lead up to the wedding, with great communication, support and ideas – just what we needed through the planning stages! Our evening guests were blown away with Sheldon’s early evening performance and they loved hearing some modern songs with great twists. Sheldon finished the night with a 3 hour DJ set comprising of all our favourite songs. Thank you so much Sheldon, you made the atmosphere of our special day exactly how we wanted it! We would hire you again in a heartbeat!”
Ali and John – September 2016 (wedding) – Solo and DJ
“’It was a joy to have Sheldon performing at our Lunch. He played all the music we love and sang and played for us in his easy style, and really set the mood for the rest of the afternoon. He was easy to deal with and is a true professional”
Kay and Keith’s 50th wedding anniversary – September 2016
“We had a great evening with Sheldon providing live music especially selected for our party guests. His friendly attitude and energy helped the evening go really well, everyone had a great night”
Ian and Liz’s 50th Birthday Party – June 2016
Thank you so much for singing and playing at my mum’s birthday celebration. Your service was professional, friendly and stress-free from start to finish. You really listened to what we asked for and on the day your performance was perfect for the occasion and the age-group. All our guests have commented on your talent and how your music made the party really special. Thank you.
