"I always try to play exactly what the song needs, nothing overly complicated when it’s not required. I run my successful function band that uses a lot of dep musicians so I know exactly what is wanted when someone books a dep. I know a huge range of songs but if there’s songs I don’t I’ll learn them accurately to make sure the performance is as seamless as possible.”

I had the good fortune to book James on a Xmas function band gig when I was let down at the last minute by my regular guy. James was brought to my attention by a recommendation from a colleague. He did a superb job holding down two marathon high-energy sets of material and fitted in with the ret of the guys brilliantly. My bass player was particularly effusive about his playing - praise indeed. I'd have no hesitation in using James again - esp considering he's such a nice guy to boot. 5 glowing stars!!
