Andy Nash Wedding Guitarist m-Repertoire

Song List

My repertoire is a carefully chosen selection of contemporary music – unique among ‘classical’ wedding guitarists – to cater for a wide range of tastes and age groups (with a little humour thrown in for good measure!). It’s tried and tested over several hundred bookings and is under constant development. Suggestions are welcome!

“… the Indiana Jones theme tune was a particular hit!”
“My friends were in tears to an acoustic version of Shake it Off!”
“We wanted something a little bit different … great song choices that really reflected our style of day and our personalities…”

I use an electronic looper-sampler pedal to layer parts in real time (NO pre-recorded backing tracks!!) and incorporate a lot of live improvisation into my performance – while of course remaining faithful to the familiar melodies of the original. The list below represents my ‘standard’ set-list; additional requests may incur an extra charge (see FAQ).

Other various

I can also play the traditional Bridal Chorus ‘Here Comes the Bride’ by Wagner and Pachelbel’s Canon.

The above selection is based on the most obvious, popular choices across pop, jazz and rock – I can play lots more by artists such as Nirvana, Pink Floyd, Flight of the Conchords, Foo Fighters, Radiohead and even Rage Against the Machine if you fancy something a bit different! I’m very open to learning quirky versions of songs so don’t be afraid to ask. Film themes such as Indiana Jones, Rocky, Top Gun and Star Wars are always popular – not to mention the title music to Match of the Day and Black Beauty!
