Lee Calvin Music.

Lee Calvin Music. Live Acoustic. 

An authentic acoustic live show. Any venue, any location. 


An entertaining, lively and engaging fully acoustic set. Packed with your favourite songs that consists of, mainly, Classic Rock - Indie - British Rock. 

Think: Whitesnake/Journey/Thin Lizzy/REO Speedwagon/Bon Jovi /James/Cast/Oasis/Killers/Rolling Stones/U2/Queen/Greenday…… and a few songs to make you say “ooh I’ve not heard this one for ages!” 


Lee has been singing and playing the guitar (piano too!) for over 25 years and has fronted more than a couple of local classic rock covers and original bands as well as solo.

A full PA and lighting rig as well as a choice of guitars are always part of Lee‘s arsenal. So whether it’s the corner of a micro pub or taps bar, or a big stage at an indoor or outdoor gig, Lee is ready for it! 

Lee played a couple of songs with a live band at his own wedding - so he’ll be happy to play a full set at your wedding or party.

Lee will be performing at this year‘s Darwen Live Festival at various venues - it’s a good way to check him out! 

End of May Bank Holiday weekend! 27 - 28 May 2023. See listings and Facebook for full details.
