Music And London

London Guitarists & Bands

The list of incredible guitarists and musicians hailing from London is almost endless. Eric Clapton, Slash, Brian May, Elvis Costello, Cat Stevens, the list goes on. Guitarists who have reached the very top in music, resided in London, written songs about London, and perform several night residencies in London at the end of their expansive world tours.

Beyond the guitarists simply born in London, there are also many guitarists for whom London became home as they took one of the primary career routes for UK musicians looking to ‘make it’ in the industry – Moving to London! (As referenced in famous guitar anthem “Sultans Of Swing”)

Of course a band can ‘make it’ anywhere in the UK, but for decades now, the off-the-record advice from within the industry is simply – move to London. Epitomised in recent history by bands like Oasis – Manchester born and bred, but synonymous with London’s Camden Town in the 90’s Britpop revolution.

London Music Venues

London music venues - Bruce Music

Just about every act’s world tour stops by London for at least one night. Meaning if you live in London there’s nobody you can’t see perform. London is home to so many iconic music venues, from the Albert Hall, to the O2 Arena, to Hammersmith Apollo, to the fantastic outdoor gigs and festivals that take over Summer in London – Hyde Park, Somerset House and others.

For smaller and emerging acts, there’s a gig on every night of the week in hundreds of London venues. There are too many to mention, but some of our favourites include Paper Dress Vintage, The Hoxton Pony, Oslo in Hackney, and many many more! Not to mention the incredible choice of London open mic nights, where first time performers can get up and play a song or two to tip their toe in the water.

Not only are you in the right city in London, but also we at Bruce Music as a company have the connections to introduce you to venues, open mic nights, promoters, jam nights and so on and support you through the process.
