Where do I even start! Josh arrived before we did, he sang so beautifully, hauntingly so, setting a wonderful ambiance for our reception guests to arrive to. I can’t thank josh enough for adding to the magic of our day!

Josh was brilliant! Created the perfect atmosphere for my event and did amazingly at reading the crowd and fitting the vibe. He was professional from start to finish, more than happy to personalise any playlist requests, very reliable, and was just the all round perfect addiction to my party. All my guests loved his style and complimented him massively throughout the night. A lovely guy and I will definitely be booking again for future events!

Josh was fab- he’s got such a beautiful voice and blended in perfectly to our summer party in the garden. He played exactly what we wanted and was always happy to take requests.

Josh definitely made our event. He played at our daughters 21st party, he is a lovely guy, very talented, perceptive and adaptable to our requests. We would thoroughly recommend Josh, a friend who attended our event has booked him for theirs next month.

I booked Tristan and Josh via a friends recommendation for a work party. They were brilliant. Very nice guys and very professional. They provided the perfect background music that we could sing along to and have a good time. Cheers lads
