Andrew attended our Mums Wake. We were very lucky to have found him, as he made a sad day a little better. Would highly recommend using Andrew, he must of attended many wakes before I am guessing because he knew exactly what to do at the right time. Thank you Andrew Laura & Lee Davis

Andy was very professional and personable. He was very organized in gathering our music choices and discussing the music schedule with us. He arrived early to review the venue and see the layout. Quality. Once the event started, the music was rousing, fun and absolutely beautiful. Andy was able to walk the venue, pause appropriately for the benefit of the guests. It was a treat for us all, and everyone was appreciative. Afterwards he was available for photo opportunities and good conversation amongst friends. Nothing but great things to say. Thanks for the great & stress-free experience! Will use again.
