About this Act

From Saxophone to Mandolin, Clarinet, Guitar/s or warm/deep Vocals, Ukelele - plus a wide choice of classical and more contemporary music - from Mozart, to Michael Bublé...

Chris Hastings is one of the most unique, professional and sought after musicians/singers for ambient - yet engaging – mellifluous (sweet/flowing) music at social occasions & private events across South Wales..

With over 150 wedding ceremonies/receptions to his name since graduation in 2005, Chris continues to be recommended and hired by successive managers at Swansea Grand Theatre, hotels in Llanelli, Stradey Park Hotel; Swansea, Marriott Hotel; the Gower, King Arthur Hotel, and more recently the Oldwalls luxury cottages/celebrity retreat.

His 6th New Years Eve performance in the restaurant at Swansea Marriott Hotel (2011/12) is a testimonial in itself.

Chris has an extensive and growing repertoire of classical and more contemporary pieces – from Mozart to Michael Buble - subtly sung or performed on his Clarinet, Mandolin, Saxophone, Electric Guitar or Spanish guitar. He specialises in providing sonorous ambient music; enhancing and attentively harmonising with the mood of your special day.

Testimonials

"Chris played at my parents' platinum wedding anniversary at the Norton House Hotel in Swansea. His range of music, the variety of instruments he played and his vocal ability meant that his music appealed to all, despite the wide range of ages. People danced and enjoyed listening to him and he certainly made a significant contribution to the success of a lovely evening. I would have no hesitation recommending Chris. Thanks."

Jayne Hughes

“When you played during the wedding ceremony, you could have heard a pin drop – it transfixed the audience (us included).”
