We cannot recommend Jan enough! We had our day in October 2020 in-between the lockdowns, and the support given was second to none. Due to government guidelines our day was completely planned from start to finish in 6 weeks and was changed twice within the final 3 weeks on the run up to our day, leaving us with only 15 guests and only a ceremony. Having such an amazing musician on the day added that perfect, romantic and intimate touch, that we really thought had gone throughout the roller coaster journey on the run up to our day. All of our chosen songs were played and some beautiful tones just made our day magical. The whole performance throughout the ceremony was absolutely faultless!! Really is worth his weight in gold!

We are delighted that Jan took part in the Ribble Valley Music Festival. He embraced and thrilled the audience with his multi-instrumental skills and passionate performance of a wide range of popular music. He is a true professional both with arrangements of an event and his performance. Clive Greenwood, Ribble Valley Music Festival.
