I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for the fantastic performance you put on at Gatwick airport for my girlfriend's arrival. Your voice was absolutely incredible, and I was so impressed by how you could effortlessly incorporate all of the requested songs into your playlist. It was clear that you put a lot of thought and effort into making the performance special, and it truly made my girlfriend's arrival all the more memorable. I also wanted to commend you for your professionalism and willingness to request permission to use an amplifier from the airport. Your dedication to providing a high-quality performance really shone through, and I do not doubt that anyone who has the opportunity to book you will be blown away by your talent. I would highly recommend you to anyone looking for a talented and professional musician. Your performance exceeded all expectations, and I can't thank you enough for making my girlfriend's arrival so special. Thank you again for your incredible performance

We want to thank Kane from the bottom of our hearts for getting our Wedding Party started for us. We were specifically looking for a Soul/Motown singer for the first part of the dancing and couldn’t believe our luck when we came across him on lastminutemusicians.The fact that he had performed in Motown The Musical felt too good to be true. Dealing with him during enquiry and booking stage was completely stress free and Kane’s communications were excellent. On the night he certainly didn’t disappoint. In fact he far exceeded our expectations. His smooth, soulful voice was divine and he is a wonderful, fun performer who got almost every single guest up on their dancing feet. We had so many compliments on Kane’s talent. He was worth every penny spent. Emma & Murray Rich
