Thanks again Jamie for playing the keyboard at our party. We weren't sure how it would work in the one small lounge but we were very happy with having you play for the party. Next time, we need a bigger place so you can be heard even better. You are very talented, courteous and professional and we would be happy to recommend you for future bookings.

Both myself and my partner, have had the pleasure of listening to Jamie play the piano at the Bothy in Perth, on many occasion. Jamie plays a wonderful and broad selection of music, and always with sensitivity and passion. We love it. Whenever we nip into Perth for an evening out, we always look out for him. Lovely :) Anne Palmer, Perth
