Testimonials

"Chris played at my parents' platinum wedding anniversary at the Norton House Hotel in Swansea. His range of music, the variety of instruments he played and his vocal ability meant that his music appealed to all, despite the wide range of ages. People danced and enjoyed listening to him and he certainly made a significant contribution to the success of a lovely evening. I would have no hesitation recommending Chris. Thanks."
