Oscar is a professional and adaptable guitarist, who has been playing live for nearly 20 years all over the UK and abroad in many different acts, from signed original bands to top tribute acts. As a full time musician and teacher, Oscar plays over one hundred functions every year!

Oscar performs popular acoustic covers of songs from all eras, to suit all ages and tastes. His all-encompassing repertoire takes in artists such as Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis right through to the latest releases by James Bay. So whether you’re after a foot-stomping sing-along or laid-back classy background music, he’ll be able to tailor the perfect set list for you.

You were a massive part in ensuring our reception went so well! You even got my Granny up dancing, which, trust me, is unheard of! Harvey & Clare, Wedding, Leicestershire

Specific songs, versions or arrangements may be requested beforehand. His PA system & lighting is small and portable, meaning he can play in almost any sized space, indoor or outdoor.

Oscar can provide music for wedding ceremonies, champagne receptions and evening parties as part of a duo or 3-piece band, if you're looking for a bigger sound to get your guests on their feet. One of his most popular booking options is a solo acoustic performance in the afternoon followed by the 3-piece band for the evening party.
