When did you first start playing the guitar?
I started playing when I was 15 years old, I saved up and bought a Fender Squire and a very rubbish amp. I’ve become obsessed and currently own five at the minute, you just can never have enough of them!
Who are your musical icons?
I’ve a very varied taste but mainly I’m a classics guy. I adore Fleetwood Mac, The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix. Recently I’m listening a lot to Old Crow Medicine Show and Jason Isbell.
What’s your greatest claim to fame so far?
I performed a few songs for the one and only Hugh Grant at our fine establishment a few months back and he actually stayed for a few hours too so I think I did alright !
What styles of music are your favourite?
I honestly play a bit of everything but more recently I’m more of a folk/country fanatic, that being said I always love the chance to crank up the amp and riff out on the electric with some tasty blues or rock.
What / Who do you love covering?
I love covering Neil Young, Old Crow Medicine Show (Wagon Wheel is the official Sandy’s Live Mic Anthem), but at the end of the day I’m and Irishman so you’ll always catch me knocking out some classics like Whiskey in the Jar or The Wild Rover! But playing in the bar circuit past few years has left me with large variety of songs and genres! Just ask, if I know it I’ll play it !
