We had the absolute pleasure of experiencing Ben's performance at our wedding on 2nd April 2024, and it was truly exceptional. We are a couple who individually and collectively have music as part of our core values and subsequently have high expectations of performance, especially for that of our wedding. Ben’s talent and passion shone through in every note he played and sang. Ben's voice has a beautiful tone that captivated everyone in attendance, creating a fantastic atmosphere that enhanced our special day. Our guests all thought he was outstanding. We had very particular song choices, some which required similar recreation to the original and other pieces we let Ben have free rein for him to add his personal touch that made the moment memorable. We even scrapped the optional ceremony readings at our marriage service in favour of another song performance by Ben. We highly recommend Ben for any event where top-notch musical talent is needed; he truly made our wedding unforgettable with his incredible performance. On a more personal note, Ben is so lovely and genuine. He truly cared about our special day and nothing was too much trouble. He has excellent communication and arrived promptly at all our meetings and the wedding itself. So…whether he likes it or not… he has us as groupies for life. We are already planning to book him for our next party. You won’t regret booking him for your event, whatever it is. Best wishes Shannon & Manoj

My husband and I would just like to thank Ben for playing at our wedding in Bristol on May 1st! He was absolutely fantastic! We had so many people tell us how great he was. Ben was extremely professional and we can't thank him enough for making our day so perfect. He was very easy going and friendly, my only regret is that I didn't get a chance to speak to him as much as I would have liked to! Thank you Ben! We will definitely be recommending you to friends and family :) Kind regards, Lizzie and John.
