Cy Stanley

Cy Stanley is the perfect soloist for an occasion that needs a little liveliness, or just something gentle nestled away in the background. His skill on acoustic guitar and voice and unique interpretations of popular songs make him extremely versatile and a sure crowd pleaser.

Cy Stanley began his music carer in Auckland, New Zealand playing 5 nights a week in a number of rock, pop, and even bluegrass bands and duos throughout a city that thrives on live music.

While he is a soloist, his command of the acoustic guitar and voice can easily have the whole room up dancing, just as it can sit tucked away in the background. His repertoire of unique interpretations of hits from the 50’s to today will add a whole lot of fun to any occasion, and also a touch of class.

Client Comment
Now that my wedding has been and gone, I’d like to thank you for helping me book Cy Stanley. He was absolutely fantastic and a consumate professional.

Not only did he learn a special song that I happened to mention in casual conversation (an obscure Maori love song), but he played all night long, which was absolutely awesome.

Apart from leaving my guests truly gobsmacked by his excellent vocals and expert guitar playing, by the end of the night it felt like saying goodbye to a friend; someone who’d gone out of his way to make our night a success.

In a nut shell, he turned perhaps your average wedding (with a cheesy dj, cake and champagne) into the best night of my life – leaving my new wife and I with many special memories, which will always stay with us.  (Many of my friends and family were equally moved by his music.)

Perhaps the best thing about Cy, as well, is his easy going, modest and warm personality, which shines through his music. At times I felt privileged to be listening to what is undoubtedly an outstanding talent… I wish him every future success; he deserves it.

I want to thank you as well for making the booking so easy and transparent.  I’ll certainly use MFL again in the future, and feel free to contact me if you need any client references etc – I’ll happily offer my support.

With many thanks,
Sam and Questa Karlsson

  1. Hi Cy,

    I am looking for a guitarist and singer who will be able to do a 30 minute acoustic set at my best friends hen party in South Kensigton London. She loves Enrique Iglesias and her favorite song is Hero and I was wondering whether this is something that you would be able to do? Your other songs you do look great as well but this is the main one I am looking for someone to play.

    It is on the 14th July.

    Do you do 30 minute sets and what do you charge?

    I look forward to hearing from you.
