I hired Niki for my 30th Birthday party and she was absolutely FANTASTIC, she deserves more than five stars! From start to finish Niki was incredible, she got everyone in the party spirit and the dance floor was constantly flooded with guests, which is all you want for a party! I received compliments from almost every guest on the night expressing how wonderful she was. Niki’s communication before the event was effortlessly consistent and her enormous array of song choices and genres were exceptional to choose from. I need another excuse to throw a party just so I can hire her all over again, Niki helped create one of the best evenings of my life! So much so that once she’d finished her set we asked if she’d carry on until the end of the party and she did! Thankyou again for all your help!

Niki was amazing from the very beginning. Called first to establish our taste and made sure she would be able to deliver exactly what vibe we were looking for. She sent through some examples to help. On the night she was so friendly, professional and involved, mingling with the guests as she played. We were so pleased, she made the evening that extra bit special. I would highly recommend Niki to anyone looking for a night to remember

Wow, Niki was absolutely amazing and made our Ocean Club Party as close as we could get it with not being able to travel to Marbella this year. Her playlist was perfect and was fully engaged with my guests. Very flexible with her approach and was great company on the evening. Thank you for making the event a tremendous success :) Craig and Nathan x

We had Niki for our low key wedding reception/garden picnic. She was amazing and very professional, all our guests loved her. Her communication was excellent throughout and she always made sure that we were happy with everything and what songs we wanted played for each part of the day. She learnt some songs specially for us which was amazing. Niki went above and beyond and even allowed us to use her PA system for the speeches afterwards which was really appreciated and meant she even stayed on extra time. Without doubt, we will be having Niki again for our bigger wedding celebration next year and we can't wait to have her back and hear her play again! A lovely person all round!
