James has a lot of residencies in the South Yorkshire area and is happy to travel around the UK for events.
James Taplinhas been performing over 100 shows a year since 2010 and has honed his craft to become one of the most sought after music personalities in the North of England. He has become very well known around his hometown of Doncaster and the surrounding areas where he frequently gigs.
Hearing him sing live is a truly memorable experience and his effortless showman abilities, charm and wit shine through with every performance. He has a voices that can stop you in your tracks and stay with you for a long time.
His unique style of performing covers is a breathe of fresh air. His 'rootsy' take while covering popular songs gives them a different feel and really is something different to the standard wedding/event band.
Backed up by his 3 long term friends and musical colleagues, the full band provides a tight, punchy sound to compliment James' effortless singing ability. Perfect to fill any dance floor, which is of course the most important part of any event!
For smaller events or afternoon performances, either a James Taplin solo or duo set is most suitable. This can still however pack a dance floor out if required.
