Joseph was fantastically professional, just what you want when you have a million things on tour mind in the run up to a wedding. And that's aside from his talent as a musician. He also arranged to have an acompanying musician without any hassle. They were both there in plenty of time, easy set up, perfect professionalism throughout. Joseph also helped us plan the music we wanted and could play general favourites throughout the reception. We couldn't have asked for any more, so glad we found him. Thank you Joseph, you really helped make our day!!
