Reviews

From customers:

Mat (

James not only had an extensive repertoire of current and classic favourites at the ready but had an incredible voice to back them up

Rachel, 1 year ago

James really engages his audience well and allows them to choose what they want to hear. He has a very broad spectrum of what music he knows and is always prepared to change it up at any second
