Emma absolutely made my 50th birthday....Emma and I had one conversation about music and theme of the party. Her song choices and energy made the room bounce, her personality sparkled and felt comfortable. Guests were in awe watching and listening to her playing. I have had many people come up and offer their gratitude for being able able to listen to such a professional musician. We were able to dance to house music and even sit and take in the more chilled music at the beginning of the evening. Just what I had asked for. Wonderful, Thank you x I cannot thank her enough and would recommend and hire her again.
