Bookings

I have played at over 100 private and corporate bookings over my four years as a professional performer - as well as countless performances in pubs, bars, restaurants and hotels.

 

​I am currently taking bookings as a solo performer of cover songs (vocals and guitar) including: weddings, private functions, proposals, pubs, clubs, restaurants, festivals and most other public or private events.​ With a broad repertoire, and open to just about any opportunity, I am confident that I can tailor my performance to any type of venue or event.

FAQs

How can I book you?

Please or fill in the form on the contact page of this website or email marcus@marcuspike.com. Or feel free to give me a call on 07471188827. Please let me know the date, location, nature and approximate timings of your event.

What kind of functions do you play?

Weddings, proposals, pubs, clubs, restaurants, festivals, residencies, other private or corporate functions - I'm open to just about anything, try me!

How long do you typically play for?

Usually 2x45 minutes or 3x45 minutes - but it's entirely up to you. I frequently play much shorter sets too, and sometimes longer. My current repertoire I can fill over 5 hours hours, and I will happily consider any length of set.

 

What are your prices?

My wedding prices are laid out on the weddings page. For all other enquiries, please enquire with as much information as possible and I will provide you with a quote. I offer very competitive rates based on the nature and timings of the event.

 

How far are you prepared to travel?

I am based in East London but can drive just about anywhere. I usually stick to the South East of England, will happily travel to just about anywhere in the UK, or further afield.

Do you charge extra for travel?

Not usually. If the event is based further than around 50 miles away, I may incorporate this into the price. If you are interested in booking me for an event abroad, I will typically require my travel and accommodation to be covered.

 

What equipment do you use?

I will provide a top of the range Mackie PA system with mixer and microphones if there is not one available at your venue. I play a Taylor 210ce electro-acoustic guitar, but can also play electric guitar if preferred.

 

Can I request a song that isn't in your repertoire?

Absolutely! Just let me know in advance and I'll see what I can do!
