James was a fantastic choice made by us. He is an amazing singer and musician. And performed brilliantly, with a sense of humour and engaging with over enthusiastic guests. Guests got up to dance to his performance and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. There were loads of positive comments from our guests after he had finished saying how good they thought he was. We want to say a huge thank you to James for helping make our day extra special. We would recommend him 100%.

Thank you James! From booking until after our wedding your were the ultimate professional and so accommodating. You created a really special atmosphere for our wedding ceremony with a beautiful, intimate rendition of one of our favourite songs. Many of our guests commented on how amazing you were - that voice! Thank you! Abi and Will Feb 2018
