Excellent. This was a difficult gig. A small birthday party for a very ill friend. James dealt with this brilliantly. He was lovely. Created a great sing a long atmosphere. He’s a very talented singer and keyboard player who adapted well to the occasion . So glad we chose him. We would use him again and happy to highly recommend him.

We cannot begin to thank you enough for playing at our wedding on Saturday. Our guests absolutely LOVED the surprise, and so many came up to us to comment on how much fun it was. They were very intrigued as to where we had found you! It was great to have such a fun and friendly pianist at the wedding who mingled with guests too. Thank you for being so animated and enthusiastic-we really appreciated it.

James recently played at my 40th birthday party and he made the evening! Prior to the event he was completely professional and organised, visiting the venue to assess what equipment was needed and setting up earlier the day so as not to disrupt the party. At the party itself he was fabulous - great songs, brilliantly sung, and with a friendly and welcoming way of talking between songs that made all my friends feel like they could join in, make requests, sing along and get involved. I had an absolutely fabulous time and plan to hire him for every major event in my life from now on!
