Andy played at our ceremony and reception drinks on Saturday and it was fantastic. As soon as I heard the song we requested for my to walk down the aisle I was in tears. The music was such a beautiful mix and everyone told me how wonderful the music was. My friends were in tears to an acoustic version of Shake it Off! I would recommend Andy to anyone! His music would suit so many settings and was the perfect touch to our relaxed spring wedding.

Roberto G, 1 year ago

Andy is such a talented guitarist! He played during our wedding ceremony and drinks reception and his music was absolutely perfect for the occasion!He learnt a bespoke version of Zara Larsson’s, Symphony for my entrance and although perhaps not conventional he made it sound romantic and graceful ... absolutely beautiful.All our guests commented on how brilliant he was!A pleasure to deal with when booking and discussing our requirements.. really professional .. do not hesitate to book with Andy!
