Extra Accommodation

Live Acoustic Guitar. Alan Plummer.

Alan has been playing guitar professionally since he was 12 years old. Raised in a musical household with a father that had worked with people including Django Reinhardt, Groucho Marx, Julian Bream and Ginger Baker and with a sister who became principal piccolo for the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Alan Plummer was the first classical guitar player admitted into the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. Despite their best efforts, Alan ended up age 17 sharing a stage with bands including The Saints and Radio Birdman.


As a classical soloist and accompanist Alan has for over 20 years provided both entertainment and ambience at five star hotels across Sydney, performed at the Sydney Opera House (Utzon Room), the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, University of NSW and more. Most recently he has appeared at the Hydro Majestic, the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre, and the Blue Mountains Theatre and Arts Hub.

Applause for Alan (a recommendation from a Dantosa 80th birthday event organiser and loving son)

My Dad had is 80th birthday at Dantosa. Alan was absolutely perfect for the occasion. 60 guests joined my parents to celebrate my Dad's important milestone. Everyone, and I mean everyone, loved Alan's performance. I received so many comments from guests about how lovely it was to have Alan playing his acoustic guitar. Dantosa's large entertainment room was perfect for his repatoire. Guests were seated in the room, enjoying the moments while Alan played throughout.

Alan played classical / Spanish guitar during our wedding reception and provided a beautiful background music, ensuring the moment was extra special. Would highly recommend him.
