Jay McKay is an experienced and successful songwriter, acoustic guitarist and vocalist, with many years experience performing at all kinds of events, sending guests into a foot-stomping frenzy.

With a husky, warm-toned voice, Irish-born Jay has an amazing likeable character which resonates through his performance. Your guests will be struggling to keep still as he storms through his catchy repertoire of pop and soul classics from the 80s up to today's charts plus traditional Irish songs.

As well as being a fantastic vocalist and guitarist, he is also a skilled songwriter and has an impressive resumé. This includes (but is not limited to) two BBC Introducing "Tracks of the Day", appearances at festivals like Glastonbury, Brighton and The Fringe, a USA tour and a UK headline tour with sold out shows in London, Brighton and Ireland. If that's not a sure sign of a dedicated and hard-working musician, then we don't know what is!

Jay McKay's performance consists of vocals, acoustic guitar and a stomp box - a recipe for feel-good music. However, if you're looking to turn up the heat on the dance floor, you can opt for another guitarist to join Jay.

Jay adds his own personal touch to well-known and well-loved songs. You can also request he performs another favourite song of yours live at your event, which he will happily do for an additional fee.

All PA and lighting is provided within his standard package, plus background music for in between his sets to maintain the musical flow of your celebrations. You can upgrade this to a manned DJ service for an additional fee too.

"Jay was absolute fantastic. My wife and I wrote a very short brief about our song choices and he delivered them brilliantly. Our guests absolutely loved him and he had the dance floor packed on only his 2nd track. It was not only the quality of his voice and wide range of songs but his he added his own very cool twist to some classic tracks. I can't recommend Jay highly enough for his professionalism and quality, he definitely added such a positive vibe to the day and was definitely one of our highlights!!"
Wayne - Private Event - West Midlands
"It was a pleasure to have Jay come and play at our work event. He is a very talented musician with a really special voice. He created the perfect atmosphere for the guests and even played requested songs that were not in his repertoire but just vibe-d with the crowd. We had to change set times last minute and Jay was completely understanding about this, he's extremely easy to work with. I would highly recommend Jay McKay for any event, our guests cannot stop raving about him"
Mercedes - Corporate - London
