Alison was wonderful! She sang beautifully at our garden party and we received so many compliments from people saying the same thing. Super stylish, professional, friendly, and a great range of songs to choose from, we wouldn't hesitate to book her again 😊

"Alison's Jazz Trio were amazing at our wedding! Alison was so friendly, putting us at ease by phoning us before the event to discuss finer details & what she could do for us. We are so grateful for Alison stepping in last minute to replace our previous-booked singer, we couldn’t have asked for better entertainment at our wedding. Everyone said how much they enjoyed the music - we definitely recommend!"

"I asked Alison to sing at my Grandmother’s funeral as congregational singing is not allowed under the current Covid19 restrictions. Not only did she sing beautifully, bringing an uplifting note of spiritual joy to an otherwise sombre occasion, but she also took care of all of the arrangements with the church to ensure things went smoothly."
