Aaron was fabulous for our party, he created a charming atmosphere, and sang beautifully all our favourite songs. He is a very talented young singer. He was a big hit with all the guests, and everyone was talking about his performance. I would certainly book him again! It made for a very memorable evening.

Aaron created a great atmosphere, and performed brilliantly. He has a superb voice. A good mix of crooner-style songs and more upbeat ones, old and new, so everyone could enjoy. He was even able to sing a requested song, which meant a lot to us.
