Gary B, 4 months ago

WOW! Alex is an incredible musician, a wonderful person and played a superb part as an integral part of our wedding. With the obvious COVID problems our booking was over a year old and had to be changed on numerous occasions and Alex and Encore were great in any changes. Alex always kept in contact, was always on the front foot planning and asking questions making sure everything was just the way it needed to be. He would always go the extra mile, keeping in close contact, checking out the organ prior to playing, attending our wedding rehearsal and making the day so special. We will never forget the first time we heard him play Widor's Toccata at our rehearsal, it took all of our breathes away. On the day he was a joy, professional and always so personable. Thanks to Alex for making our day so wonderful. We can't recommend highly enough! Gary & Sophie

Everything was great; Alex helped us choose the music ahead of time which was really useful given we werent sure what to play. He arrived promptly on the day and climbed into the rather tight organ space without complaint! I am no expert in organ playing and was somewhat distracted by the act of getting married, but as far as I could tell everything was played beautifully and went off without a hitch. Wouldn't hesitate at all in recommending him for future events. Thanks!
