Looking forward to the summer…

AT LAST! My exams are finally over and done with which means I can now concentrate on my music!

Over the next few days I’ll be putting together a plan of gigs which will continue for the next few months. Watch this space for more!

Also if you would like to book me for your party, dinner, festival or anything else, please get in touch either by messaging this page or via my website. I can provide entertainment for crowds large or small for a tailored length of time that is sure to get any audience laughing and tapping their feet! www.matthewquilliamukulele.wordpress.com

Finally, I will be producing a few music videos and recordings to share here soon as well as working on my plans for an exciting announcement about a possible event at the end of the year…

I would love to see you at one of my performances soon! Thank you to all of my supporters, your kind words mean a lot!

Acoustic Cafe June 20th

I’m very excited to be doing gigs in less than a month! Here’s a link that will take you to some information on a showcase session that I am involved in!

This event is a great night. Food and music 8 until 10. Four acts including myself performing; it should be a great night!


Bracknell Acoustic Couch
8pm – 10pm
Four acts including Matthew Quilliam and his Ukuleles


Performing at the similar ‘Acoustic Cafe’ last October


May Update

First of all, thank you to all those at Listen Up! Berkshire music fair! It was a great day for music, playing and listening. I look forward to making use of the opportunities that were presented that day!

The main point of this post is just to say that my exams are now well underway and it’s non stop until June 16th. On the plus side that means that it’s less than a month until I can plan and announce my gig dates for the summer of 2017! Watch this space as there is something pretty exciting being planned for the end of the year!

Despite this I can confirm a few upcoming gigs already. These are:

Tuesday 20th June – Acoustic Couch Showcase, Bracknell
Monday 3rd July – Acoustic Cafe Showcase, Bracknell South Hill Park Arts Centre
Saturday 19th August – WEYFEST, Surrey
Saturday 9th September – Yateley Cask and Cork Festival 2017

Ready for the summer…

Hello everybody, I am now taking bookings for the summer! I can perform at your party (birthday or other), wedding, function, festival, club or anywhere else you would like 40 minutes or an evening of entertainment!

My act is a light hearted adventure through the more nonsensical side of music from the past few decades! George Formby with his cheeky lyrics, to Madness with crazy ideas, through to Barry Manilow, the king of cheese, and a trip across the pond to Italy with Joe Dolce! Then there are some more serious pieces to break up the action and some random numbers that one wouldn’t normally hear on a ukulele: Kraftwerk, jazz or Tom Jones for example…
