I can’t recommend Joe highly enough. My request was a little different in that I needed him to play a couple of songs for a proposal idea, and Joe was enthusiastic, helpful, flexible and just generally a dream to work with. He provided an amazing sense of calm to a hugely nerve wracking day and his performance was breathtaking. If you need a soulful, talented, kind and downright incredible guitarist and singer, Joe is your man. We’ll never forget him.

Just watching back our wedding video and we cannot thank the Laurels enough for making our evening a night to remember. From start to finish the dance floor was full! The flexibility in their setup was a big selling point for us and they fully met the brief. Their communication was excellent throughout – could not recommend these guys enough!

I could not recommend Laurels enough, we were so lucky they were available at short notice for our wedding. From the start their communication was excellent and they can be flexible in their set up to meet your requirements. On the night they had everybody up dancing from the first song right through to the last! Thanks for a great night guys!
