Laurence Marshall - One Man Band
A traditional style one man band ideal for mix & mingle, walk about and street style entertainment
inside or outdoors (no electrics needed).
Laurence has a vast repertoire spanning from 1920s music through to modern day pop tunes played in a bit of an old school style.
Laurence has experience playing at all sorts of events from weddings and birthdays through to street parades, shop openings and agricultural shows. Having a large repertoire means that he can tailor his sets to fit specific event themes and can also take impromptu requests on the day.
As a traditional one man band set up it's completely acoustic and portable. He can play inside or out and can perform on stage or more commonly in a walk about / mix and mingle fashion.
When performing in more intimate settings Laurence will get involved with the crowd taking requests, joking around and performing some ukulele tricks which breaks the ice nicely and develops a rapport with the audience.
Laurence has performed in the past at all types of different events including children's parties through to large scale corporate events and everything in between.
Laurence can adapt his repertoire and costume as required to match a number of different styles including:-
Red suit top hat – Perfect for when you really want him to stand out and make a splash
Victorian (Dick Van Dyke) – Ideal for Victorian markets and other themed events
Black Tie – Balls, 1920’s, prohibition style parties
Other Requests – He's open to other suggestions for example he's played as a pirate previously and in the style of the star wars band before, just ask! (there may be a small extra charge for any new costumes required).
Over 200 songs - 1920s jazz through to modern pop and everything in-between.
Requests taken in advance
