Recent Testimonials

"We can't thank you enough for the fantastic night you gave us. We were impressed with your professionalism from the outset when you first contacted us for our ideas on what we would like. You then put together a set list outlining the types of music we liked, incorporating any special songs we requested.
All our guests have commented on the quality and variation of your singing from our 17 year old daughter to my 72 year old Dad! You made it so special and personal by learning and performing 'oh what a night' for Tracey: you truly are a very talented singer/performer. The dance floor was never empty which meant our party was a total success. We would definitely recommend you to anyone who is looking for that extra special touch.
Look forward to seeing you again soon."

Tracy and Phil, 25th wedding anniversary, November 2014
