Curtis was excellent. He is an excellent musician and singer and very friendly with the crowd without being overbearing. We were really pleased with the set and he was happy to learn new songs at our request. Also, excellent value for money. Fully recommended.

It was wonderful. Curtis took an order which could seem quite unusual. He had to perform in front of dozens of girls at a boarding school as a birthday present for one of them. He did absolutely amazing. The girls were singing along and the atmosphere was really great. Thanks to Curtis!
