We couldn’t have been happier with Lewis. He’s an extremely talented musician who went the extra mile for us and learned two new songs for our wedding. Everyone absolutely loved his set and it really made our special day even better. Highly recommended

Perfect background music but equally a real pleasure for those guests who are lovers of guitar music and really enjoyed lingering and listening.
