A true guitar virtuoso, Sam specialises in jazz, but can play anything from classical to Latin to pop music.

He’s performed at jazz festivals across the UK, and at famous jazz venues including The Vortex Jazz Club and The Dean Street Pizza Express Jazz Club in London, Cafe Jazz in Cardiff, the Wardrobe in Leeds, the Jazzkeller in Frankfurt, Sax 'n’ Art in Saigon, Ned Kelly's in Hong Kong, and many more.

He has a wide, interesting repertoire, beautiful sound, and is equally compelling with ballads and burners! Judy, Yorkshire

Sam has also played in orchestras such as the National Youth Jazz Orchestra, Mike Garrick's Big Band, and the Guildhall Jazz Orchestra. He's worked a great deal in the theatre and has toured the UK and Europe with shows including 'The Rat Pack - Live from Las Vegas,' 'The Kings of Swing,' 'The Glenn Miller Orchestra,' and 'The Bobby Darin Songbook.'

Sam's guitar playing has been heard on BBC Radio 3's 'Jazz Line Up,' and BBC Radio 4's 'The Gift' and in theatres and concert halls including The Royal Albert Hall and the National Theatre in London, The Opera Houses of Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Nuremberg, Oslo, Graz, and Copenhagen, The Stables in Wavendon, The Cardiff Opera House, The Old Vic in Bristol and The Empire in Liverpool.

Sam's set up is minimal, and very unobtrusive, and he can move around your venue as needed. He understands how important the small details are at a wedding or corporate event, and is always dressed smartly, in a suit or tuxedo.
