GUY CONNOR

SINGER/GUITARIST - CORPORATE EVENTS, WEDDINGS, PRIVATE PARTIES & HOSPITALITY.

ABOUT

Hello! My name is Guy and I have been a working musician for over 15 years, so I am highly experienced and very professional. Last year saw me play over 100 gigs around the UK at many events, weddings, venues & parties. My CV also includes repeat performances at festivals such as Benicassim, Glastonbury, Kendall Calling, & Hop Farm, as well as performing all over Europe and in the U.S.

I work hard to tailor any performance specifically for the type of event that I’m playing at, to make sure I choose the songs to project the right vibe and tone to best complement the client’s desired effect. To be either upbeat, or relaxed to suit the given time of day, mood & style of event. I am very attentive to detail, such as being at exactly the right volume, dressing for the occasion, ensuring my equipment is as neat & tidy as it can be, and that I’m not taking up any unnecessary space in the venue etc.

I try to choose songs that are very well known to people, yet not always what they might expect to hear, and I always try to put a slight spin onto the versions of these songs, which keeps my sound fresh & unique.  

I am completely self contained, punctual & very reliable, and I always make sure my performance is the best that it can be.

I am based in Manchester in the North West. Some of my past clients include Marriott Hotels, Hotel Indigo, Manchester Airport, Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet, Pizza Express & Jack Daniels, plus many weddings up and down the UK.
