Gigging with bands in the North West since the age of 16, J.C developed a reputation for his varied, imaginative and entertaining sets, before bringing his talent down to London. Influences from The Beatles and Eric Clapton to Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars inform his fresh use of the loop pedal, which has to be seen and heard to be believed! John’s gigging isn’t just limited to the UK. His experience working abroad includes having headlined Agiotfest in Corfu, the world’s first live streaming restaurant in Brooklyn USA, a number of regular shows across Europe most notably, Belgium, Austria and Denmark and a 2 month American/Caribbean cruise.
In 2016 he supported Earl Slick (David Bowie’s guitarist) and Bernard Fowler (Rolling Stones) performing at O2 academy venues in Glasgow, Liverpool and London. Want to request a song? Feel free, J.C has an enormous repertoire and actively encourages a fun, interactive set.

We have our fantastic live Party Duo bringing their high quality, high energy show to this year’s Hampton Court Palace Summer Food Festival!

In addition, they have appeared in TV shows, films, commercials and their voices can often be heard on TV and radio adverts as well as performing backing vocals for well know recording artists & bands.

With their seamless close part harmonies, high-energy dance routines, and plenty of audience interaction (especially for our little guests!), they will keep you entertained on the East Front Gardens on Monday; whether you choose to take the weight off your feet and recline in one of our comfy deckchairs, or work up an appetite for your next artisan treat with a boogie!
