Guy Pratt is

The Sideman

 

Celebrating 30 years as the bass player of choice for the heavy­weights of rock and pop.

A fas­ci­nating glimpse behind the rock ‘n’ roll cur­tain.

★★★★ Fest

Limos, Lear jets and transit vans, it’s all funny with Guy… well limos and Lear jets anyway.

Johnny Marr

Pratt is pretty bloody hilar­ious.

The Irish Times

He regaled the audi­ence with hilar­i­ously indis­creet anec­dotes about the stars he’s worked with.

Toby Young, The Spectator

What tales he has to tell.

★★★★ The Independent

An hour of rip-​​​​roaring anec­dotes.

★★★★ The List

A nat­ural racon­teur with a droll turn of phrase.

The Guardian

Bass players are ten a penny but a good wit is hard to find, so we hired him.

David Gilmour


Guy Pratt has been a cru­cial member of the rhythm sec­tion of megas­tars such as Pink Floyd, David Gilmour, Robert Palmer, Roxy Music, Bryan Ferry, Jimmy Page, David Coverdale, Womack & Womack, and The Smiths.

And when he’s not been parading his tal­ents live on the stages of every sta­dium, con­cert hall and fes­tival around the world, he has been a favourite studio bassist and accom­pa­nying singer for the biggest recording artists including Madonna, Michael Jackson, Iggy Pop,The Pretenders, Echo and The Bunnymen and McFly.

His one man show is all about life at the pointy end of the music busi­ness; Guy regales audi­ences with sto­ries from behind the scenes. His self-​​deprecating wit is irre­sistible and his rip-​​roaring anec­dotes are bril­liant and out­ra­geous. This is an evening which is both funny and frank with enough insider’s ref­er­ences to sat­isfy even afi­cionados — and he’ll be bringing his beloved vin­tage Fender bass to demon­strate his craft.

Guy is also a com­poser who has won a Grammy and been nom­i­nated for two Ivor Novello Awards – not bad for a bloke who just “hangs around with the band”!
