Testimonial

"Thank you for your help - what a fantastic night we had on Wednesday.

Andy was fantastic and played all the tunes we had wanted and then sussed out our style and continued on with tunes we have known, forgotten for a bit and still love so we found ourselves singing along before and during dinner.

He couldn't have been more helpful and fortunately saw the funny side when our puppy managed to pull his power lead out. I couldn't recommend him highly enough, a true professional, with pizzaz and fantastic voice.

Kindest Regards

Julie WIlliams

Anniversary celebration

4th Sept 2013

"Damian and I hired Andy Lucas for our wedding on Friday 23rd August. I just wanted to drop you guys a note to say that he was fantastic!!

We went to hear him play at the Living Room and were sold immediately. He was really helpful in the planning and we let him judge what music to play on the day, which he got spot on. Our wedding reception went like a storm because of him. He was enthusiastic and charming to our guests, everybody loved his music.

We would be happy to have him at another function in the future and would definitely recommend him to friends and family.

Please pass on our gratitude for a job well done. We couldn't have been happier.

:-)"

Best Wishes

Sandra and Damian McEntee
