Acoustic Guitar, Vocals & Bookings
Welcome to our website!
My name is Kyle - Lead singer, guitarist, frontman and band manager for the Snap Chaps. I'll be your point of contact through from your initial enquiry, our complimentary consultation call and bespoke quoting service, leading right up to event management on the day, fronting our performance and taking requests from you and your guests!
I'm really proud to have accrued 18+ years experience in planning and performing at all types of events. Beginning my musical career at 18, with a popular wedding evening function band, I've since come to specialise full-time in acoustic entertainment options, covering everything from solo amplified, singer-guitarist shows, a range of fun amplified duo and trio options and finally founding the Snap Chaps - Strolling Band in 2020!
I love nothing more than leading this fantastic, talented and entertaining troupe of musicians into an event and bringing smiles to the faces of our clients and their guests alike!
Please do get in touch! It would be great to have a chat and bring your party entertainment to life!
