Gig at the World of Wedgewood on 29/9/18

Our special one-off party for 150 guests was greatly enhanced by Pete's sublime guitar playing. The unique repertoire of pieces extended over two hours, and brought a sense of summer evenings, Spanish culture and a maestro at work. Having also booked Pete to play for audiences at Stoke-on-Trent's popular literary festival over recent years, his vast experience provides him with extensive musical resources from which to select. He places much importance on preparing and having knowledge of the venue, the occasion and the audience.

A true professional on all levels.

Jo B, 2018, North Staffordshire

We've all enjoyed listening to your playing and it's good to hear someone who can really play the guitar properly.....and my son is a fine musician too

Wedding in Stoke On Trent

Pete played at my daughter's wedding on the 14th April 2018 at the prestigious Potters' Club in Stoke On Trent. He is an outstanding guitarist and took the time to learn some of my daughter's favourite pieces which he then played during the champagne reception. Our guests were thrilled with his repertoire.

I would have no hesitation in recommending him for any occasion. He is a charming gentleman and a pleasure to deal with.

It is High 5's on all scores and I would highly recommend Pete. The music played suited our function perfectly and what higher recommendation than our Company Chairman thanking him for the music he played and a resounding round of applause from our Members.


Karina and Chris Whiteley

Thank you so much for playing at our Spanish themed wedding: you sounded great and all the guests agreed with me as well ! It was brilliant that you played outside while the guests were having welcome drinks, then inside the barn. You played a mixture of songs to suit everyone's taste. Great communication with you before the wedding, would definitely recommend you. Thank you so much for making our day special!

I hired Pete to play background music for a wedding reception. I was very impressed with his playing, which was tasteful and varied in repertoire. At all times he was professional and easy to work with and I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who is looking for a classical guitarist for their event.

Dear Sir/Madam

I have had the good fortune to benefit from Pete McNamara's stunning guitar playing many times at my restaurant. He provides melodic and pulsating flamenco and soulful romantic combinations of classical and contemporary standards; along with all of this he is a genuine person and great entertainer. I would strongly recommend him to anyone at any level.

Just a quick note to say thanks for playing at my wife's party at the Olive Tree in Cheadle. We had a paella last night and played your CD - great stuff! We really enjoyed the evening and many thanks for playing the requests.
