There’s an upbeat night of live funk heading to Stamford in early January with a green message.
Businessman turned musician James Gittins is a man on a mission.
The recruitment professional has returned to his musical roots and will be performing live at Mama Liz’s after Christmas in a gig that’s set to blow away the festive cobwebs and send out a message that ‘there is no Planet B’.
The classically trained guitarist with a passion for conservation is bringing his funky tunes to a new audience with his headline gig at Mama Liz’s on the first Saturday of 2019, with a live performance of his recently released album Choices on January 5.
The solo artist and song writer has had a long affiliation with Peterborough having been responsible for recruiting many of the high skilled tech and exec professionals for the biggest employers in the area through his recruitment businesses.
Whilst still very active in his businesses, James has also taken time to write, record and release two albums which he’s now touring throughout the country.
His music is an uplifting mix of disco, punk, rock and house which also delivers 21st century social and environmental commentary about the challenges we and the world are facing. It’s no surprise then, that he’s also donating 20% of his streaming profits from Choices and Choices, The Voxless House Mixes to conservation causes.
“I had to pick the guitar up and start making music again as large parts of society seem to be on a self-destruct mission, damaging our beautiful little planet which is my daughter’s most important inheritance,” says James.
“It’s far from doom and gloom though, it’s uplifting and upbeat music to get people thinking about the everyday choices we can take to make the future better for everything!”
As reviewer Kath Harris from SLAP Magazine wrote – ‘James seems to be on a one man mission to save the world with as much funk as possible’.
James’ music is available on most online channels and stores such as iTunes, Spotify, SoundCloud, Deezer, Amazon Music, Google Music amongst others.
To join James for a fun and funk filled evening and to dance the cobwebs of 2018 away, join him at Mama Liz’s Stamford on Saturday January 5 from 7.30pm. Tickets are £5 on the door.
