Jon was absolutely fantastic, couldn’t thank him enough. He was really great and provided a fantastic atmosphere for our wedding reception, even when timings went a bit wrong he didn’t worry at all about staying late and doing his second set later than planned, what a guy!!

A massive thank you to Jon. You made our wedding day so special! Jon is the nicest guy you will ever meet and has such an amazing voice to match. Jon was very helpful with song choices and suggestions during the the run up to our wedding. On the wedding day it’s self we could not of asked for more. He moved from inside to outside and then back inside once the rain was too much! He learnt a number of songs for us which were all sung beautifully. Everyone commented on how amazing he was (one of our guests want him for their wedding next year!) Thank you again Jon, love Mr and Mrs Hatton

Jon was extremely professional from start to finish and showed his true talent. He played instrumental until my arrival and played extra as there was a delay in myself getting ready! He then played Cannon in D on his guitar for myself walking down the isle and he couldn’t have done it more perfect. All of our guests commented on how good he was and created a lovely, happy atmosphere. He played a wide variety of songs for our guests while they waited and into the night. For anyone wanting a singer/guitarist for their wedding/party we highly recommend jon and would give him a massive 11/10. Thankyou very much jon x
