Booked Kevin for my son's 30th birthday. He was absolutely brilliant and I wouldn't hesitate to book him again or to recommend him. He played a mixture of music accommodating any requests. He's also really friendly and all the guests loved him.

This man was SUPERB, everyone commented on his style of music. I have hired a lot of musicians in the past and Kevin was the easiest to accommodate by far. Turned up on time, very easy to get on with and hit all the numbers and notes for everyone. VEREY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED WILL BE HIRING AGAIN Daryl

Kevin played during our wedding ceremony and reception drinks and was truly amazing. He added that extra touch and made our wedding day all the more special. Kevin's passion shone through and he absolutely blew us away. We lost count of the amount of guests that commented on how fantastic he was. He was brilliant from start to finish. We would have no hesitation in using him again for future celebrations and we'd certainly recommend him to anyone. We couldn't of wished for anything more and we thank you so much for everything. All our love Sam & Lisa Westerham Golf Club - 29.09.2018
