Gigabit is Lesley Graham and Jon Jessup.....both singers and performers with a range of experience spanning over 60 years between them. Lesley won a National MOD silver medal when she was 10 and progressed through folk, country and rock to 5 & 7 piece show bands for over 20 years. Playing everywhere from pubs and clubs to corporate and private functions - and a gig at the London Palladium - before 'settling'' into a duo working the club circuit in & around London for 6 years. After moving back to the highlands in 2007 Lesley became a solo act for the first time - working many diverse venues singing a wide range of popular favourites including the Black Eyed Peas and Amy Winehouse until she met Jonny in 2011.
Having moved to Embo a couple of years previously Jonny was keen to get 'back on the road' - and Gigabit was born. Jon has been playing guitar (bass, lead and acoustic) since before he was old enough to buy a pint. Honing his expertise on the club circuit in the North of England in 4 piece
semi-pro bands, as well as doing his PA engineer (and harmony vocals) in a busy 7 piece soul
Band, playing mostly weddings and corporate functions before taking the plunge and going solo... specialising in weddings, hotels and corporate work.
Coming together to form this exciting duo, Jon and Lesley give every song they perform
an energy and sound equal to none. Passionate about their craft Gigabit work hard to provide Fantastic harmonies, powerful lead vocals, excellent electric and acoustic guitar AND a range of music spanning 6 decades including all genres from rock, pop and soul to country - including the chart hits of today. All delivered with flair and professionalism to make your function stress free and enjoyable for all age groups regardless of musical tastes. Using the best modern equipment with customised backing trax and providing a full lighting rig if required, our fantastic PA creates a smooth but dynamic sound, suitable for any venue. Add to all this a selection of tunes for 'burling' if you want the kilts to fly, and some creative acoustic numbers where appropriate. Gigabit are happy to learn pre 'requested' songs for your first dance to ensure your wedding is all the more special - they want you to have the best time possible......and look forward to seeing you!
