James Oakton


As an accomplished solo guitarist with an incredible amount of experience in playing at weddings, corporate functions and other special events, let me help you to create the perfect atmosphere for your occasion.

My repertoire is brimming with contemporary music as well as some traditional pieces. As well as playing classical guitar, I play lively electric; with some professional backing tracks to help get the atmosphere buzzing for drinks receptions and other social events.

Let me take the stress out of arranging your wedding ceremony; with music provided throughout and your favourite piece tailored and timed to perfection as you walk down the aisle. Let me keep those guests entertained as they mingle during drinks receptions or while they dine during your wedding ‘breakfast’ (meal). A laid-back, elegant accompaniment; not intrusive and definitely distinctive. Your occasion deserves the very best and most fitting music, which I will provide for you.

Also, check out my ‘James Oakton guitar for YOU’ package; a service in which I bring my guitar playing into your home for 30 minutes via an online service. Perfect for those special romantic occasions in which you dine at home and treat your other half (or someone else who is special to you). Ideal for anniversaries, birthdays or just to let someone know you care. I perform my own music and some beautiful classical pieces for this, plus add a personalised message for the recipient. I then upload it to my YouTube channel as an unlisted video and send you the link so only you, and the person the gift is for, can view it. It is a unique and thoughtful one-off gift idea and is a way of creating a special experience for someone. Why not enquire today?!
