About the Singer Songwriter Ginger Geoffrey

The man and his music

Ginger Geoffrey's one man band kicks and strums his way through original songs and an eclectic mix of adapted indie pop and rock classics. No prerecords or looping pedals a 100% live performance delivering a rich energetic full-bodied sound.

Influenced by the intense rhythmic guitar style of Richie Havens and writing styles of Nevin, Duritz and Heaton, (Fairground Attraction, Counting Crows and The Beautiful South); Ginger writes predominantly story-driven songs woven into melodic tales. From the resilience of ‘Take what you want’ and ‘Get out of here’, optimism of ‘This heart of mine’, ‘Rendezvous’ and ‘First sight’; despair, lust and regret of  ‘Wake-up’, ‘Wanna love you’ and ‘Gone’ these tracks are a journey through the highs and lows of affairs of the heart.

quotation Ginger is ‘the premiere one-man-band’ with a 100% live signature bare-bones performance, (no backing tracks or loops), bringing his song writing, guitar, cajon and a myriad of percussion paraphernalia to bare in pursuit of liberatingly fantastic melodic foot tapping and thigh slapping music.


Ginger Geoffrey

Early Years

Born the son of a dustman and seamstress, and formatively raised on the Golf-links Estate in West London, at a time when being different put you in the 'special needs' pot within the school system. A self-taught musician, Ginger describes his earliest memory of playing guitar:

quotation “My mum and dad were looking after some possessions for an uncle which included a battered old guitar, and despite having explicit instructions not to touch any of his stuff, that guitar just kept looking at me. Early Sunday mornings I discovered a ‘how to play guitar’ show on telly and curiosity got the better of me. So while my folks were asleep, I’d take the guitar, sit in front of our black and white telly and try and follow the lessons.”

At the age of ten Ginger and his family moved to Cornwall for 5 magical years, before returning to the London suburbs in the early 80’s. A further move to Staffordshire 5 years later has been where Ginger has laid his hat ever since.

In addition to performing as a solo artist Ginger collaborates with Dr Daz forming the lively function and events duo ‘Bash and Strum'. Ginger also plays alongside Fat Fingered Freddie as the street performance duo 'Strum and Bass'; and with Mike Heathcote as part of an alternative lounge music duo 'Rock Swings'.

Bash and Strum

Bash & Strum are the result of a musical collaboration between Darren Clement and Ginger Geoffrey aka Jim.

Having spent several years as a charity covers band, Bash and Strum have made the transition to writing, composing and regularly performing their own material. Grounded in simplified acoustic rhythmic sets,  using only acoustic guitar, drums and vocals the sound the guys create is deceptively full. In recent months Darren and Jim have been performing new material as well as the songs from their debut album ‘Rendezvous’. The album explores the many-facets of relationships, from parenthood to on-line-dating. The guys say their music is intended to hopefully make the listener “think, feel and or dance!”

Performing both intimate acoustic sets as well as larger staged performances for festivals, parties, private functions and charity events. With a “just for fun” approach, the groove is lively and well….. fun.

Bash and Strums repertoire of covers is diverse and constantly evolving. Sets are always crafted around a clients needs and requirements.

Strum and Bass with ginger Geoffrey and Fat Fingered Freddy

Using Electro Acoustic Guitar, Bass, Cajon & Vocals, the guys busk reworked versions of popular music from across the decades.

The Staffordshire-based duo, met 30+ years ago as design students studying at North Staffordshire Polytechnic.

The pair now bring music to streets across Staffordshire, raising money in aid of GIST Support UK, a very rare type of cancer.

Fat Fingered Freddy

AKA ‘Bass’, is a musical explorer. With acoustic guitar, piano, saxophone (and probably recorder) under his belt, Freddy has taken on the mantle as the duo’s rhythmic heart beat.

Quirky Lounge Duo

Cafe Bar, Restaurant & Lounge Music Duo

RockSwings Music Duo

The duo perform with guitar, percussion and vocals, and have a very modest performance foot print affording venues with limited space, the opportunity to comfortably host a 100% live music experience.

Delivering a smooth unobtrusive vibe, the live music experience is unique and designed to nestle comfortably within a venue, entertaining while respecting conversation and enhancing the overall ambiance.

Lounge Tradition
The duo offer establishments a couple of ways of booking a performance. While engagements can be fully covered by the host, the duo also offer a nominal payment and tips model. This latter offering is grounded in the long established traditions of lounge music, which sees house musicians given a base payment supplemented by customer tips.

Repertoire and Set Lists for Ginger Geoffrey

Deconstructed Covers
In addition to writing, composing and performing his own material, Ginger continues to perform a selection of deconstructed covers reworked for an acoustic context.

quotation “What you end up with is a raw vibe which still maintains the essence and essential energy of the song and represents this as simplistically as I can with the resources to hand.

Excluding the Jukebox set lists, the range of covers Ginger plays in his pre-fixed sets are drawn from a variety of genres, bands and artists spanning six + decades and are established with the intention of offering a distinctly different performance of covers as wells as a somewhat unique set of songs which are a little different from the popular norm set pieces on the cover band circuit.

Music organisers have cottoned on to the problems of a lack of variety causing song repetition across artists performing covers, so much so that one festival organiser, having had "sex on fire" performed by 9 different artists over their festival weekend in 2021, so the organiser is now insisting on different songs on set lists each performer intends to play.

Additional Information to consider:

Sound Craft
Have you ever been to a live music performance where it is just too loud, or there is far too much booming bass and drums; lyrics impossible to make out and its just a woolly mass of thumping sound? (OK for some thats heaven, but its not for everyone.) Ginger is mindful of the need to tailor his audio performance to his clients/audiences needs and comfo
rt. Where amplification is required the solution selected is considered with more than just loudness in mind. Both tried and tested as well as emergent technology is employed to craft the client musical experience. If you want people to be able to chat comfortably during a first set / earlier in the day/evening and be fully immersed in the sound in the second/later in the night, this is a part of crafting the sound performance.

Professional Practice & Liability
Ginger is a member of PRS, PPL and the Musicians Union, and holds £10 Million public liability insurance, all equipment is PAT tested and should it be needed he can provide risk assessments for all his performances.

Single sets:
A single set is normally around 40 - 60 mins or so in length, and is likely to include 10-15 songs.

Double Set:
A full double set has twice as many songs (as it’s name suggests) and is divided into two halves with a 15 mins or longer break in between the two performances.

Mini Sets:
Mini sets are also catered for where the live performance of just a few acoustic songs is sought to add to an event or occasion (for example wedding ceremony).


Live Jukebox:
The performance can be configured to elicit interaction with patrons/ audience / public who request songs from am Jukebox style menu accessed and texted via the audiance members smartphone (see: Jukebox * note the jukebox is coded for Android and IOS Phones, allowing selected tracks to be text to Ginger Live during his performance). A Minimum of 60 songs, list subject to constant up-dating - see example list above.)
