I have to say it was a pleasure to have Adam perform on our wedding day. From the moment we booked with him down to the end of his set Adam managed to make the whole process very simple and straightforward. Adam responded almost immediately to any quires we had and was also really flexible and tentative to our requests. Great lad, great performance, certainly helped to make for the best day of our lives.
