Reviews

From customers:

Michael C, 4 years ago

We hired John to play for our Christmas event at Ardoe House last year - he played a great selection of current tracks and old classics that really added a touch of class to the event. Really good communication and flexibility, would recommend

James M, 4 years ago

John played us down the aisle at our wintery themed wedding last year and his musical accompaniment was the perfect addition to our day. His choice of music suited the theme well and lifted the emotions of the whole event! Would definitely recommend!
