Kevin was everything I wanted from a musician at my party. His playing was great and he was good to have around. My guests were very complimentary and wanted to know how I found him,

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
