Elliott was fantastic! He is a great musician with a lovely voice, who does not "just" replay known songs but gives them his own touch (we found a few of his versions were better than the original ones!). Not only that, he was very easygoing and flexible on the day and extremely patient and understanding with the children (that can't have been easy!). We can only say a big thank you for contributing to make our event a success. Magali Srivastava (40th Birthday Party) 10/10

Over the Christmas period we hired Elliott Rooney for a special dinner party we were hosting at our home. It's an annual event and each year we try to do something a little different. Our evening with Elliott proved to be the best we had ever done. Elliott is a very talented singer and piano player. So first and foremost he is great to listen to and to have live music in your home is a real treat. However the thing that made this evening so special was his personality, my guests really liked him. He was able to take request after request, on the night and just play whatever we asked for. So the evening turned into a big sing along , with favourites for our guests and lots of special moments re-lived. I can't recommend Elliott enough as an all round entertainer. We have booked him again.
