Fabulous. Great entertainment and very accommodating. Was for my partners 50th and would highly recommend. Great voice and highly talented, apologies if we sang over you at times and got a little over excited 🤪 so reliable, turned up bang on time despite a long distance journey, good song choices, great live music we all really enjoyed it 🕺

James was absolutely fantastic at our wedding reception, nothing was too much trouble for him and he was so lovely and kind- a true gentleman! He was super talented and all of our guests enjoyed his performance who were aged 15 to 80. We had our reception in a pub and James definitely contributed to them having a much busier night as lots of people stayed around outside to listen to him and commented on how good he was ( and it wasn’t a warm evening!!). James had excellent communication throughout the booking process, is accommodating when picking Song choices , and arrived at our venue in plenty of time. To top it all James clearly loves what he does x x we all loved him x x if you are wondering about who to book for your event , don’t hesitate , get james booked, you will not be disappointed x x x

James played at our wedding reception on the 22nd August 2023, he was absolutely incredible from start to finish! Everyone at the reception kept telling us how much they enjoyed his performance and how amazing he was. James was an absolutely perfect fit for our event, all the kids also enjoyed dancing along to the music, it was nice to see everyone enjoying the music and the atmosphere James created. We would very highly recommend booking James for any event you are planning, his voice is incredible and he is a genuinely lovely person.

I saw Jim perform and he was really very good. Very talented and an amazing singer. Several other people in the pub commented on how great his voice was. Really enjoyed watching him and would definitely see him again.
