Since the late seventies, John has been performing live covers of the most popular songs since the fifties to the present day.  His repertoire of over 1,500 songs covers rock, pop, ballads, country, reggae, ska, punk and swing.  Armed with just his guitar or, depending on the occasion, supported by backing tracks, he has always tried to stay true to the originals - except for the odd parody!

Below is a mixture of soundbites from a live performance at the Marquis of Granby, Harpenden in 2017.
