Angus James is a seasoned Melbourne based performer. After spending the last few years establishing a firm foothold in the Australian music scene, he has become a staple at weddings and corporate events all around Victoria and interstate. Having tackled some of the countries most renowned venues such as The MCG, Marvel Stadium, AAMI Park, Melbourne Park (Australian Open), Rochford Winery, Spotlight Stage (Federation Square), and many more, Angus can command a crowd. At times, having entertained over 15,000 people, he feels most at home behind a microphone, singing, and holding a guitar.
As a kid, music was always around the house. Angus picked up drums when he was about eight years old and started playing guitar and singing when he was 15. His parents, both musicians, met in a songwriting session in the UK. The family moved back to Australia when Angus was just eight years old. Inevitably, it didn’t take Angus long to realise that a career as an entertainer and performer was his calling; it is cemented in his blood.
Angus’ versatility is second to none, his dulcet tones are stunningly beautiful. He is perfect for the once in a lifetime walk down the aisle or setting the mood at a corporate event. He can also satisfy the needs for the Dancing Queen’s inside all of us with his extensive live loop pedal set up. Layering drum beats, acoustic guitars, vocals and bass guitars, in true one man band style he will have you dancing into the wee hours of the morning. Playing music from all eras, Angus’ playlist is extensive and knows what people want to hear, and is always happy to take any request he can play. Further, if an acoustic soloist isn’t what you’re after for the whole evening, he is now quickly becoming an experienced DJ, and with his incredible knowledge and experience in song choice, and crowd reading, will make sure it’s an event to remember.
