Superb! Paul made my outdoor bbq party! Great pianist with his upbeat boogie woogie music. He got my guests dancing in the barn, the whole event came to life through Paul. Extras were that he played music through his pa system when not playing, keeping the party alive and his lighting system gave his ‘set’ extra class. A real professional. Great pianist with a beautiful voice. Paul gave my guests a night to remember. Definitely would recommend.

Paul gauged the mood of the evening perfectly. He was professional and a really nice guy to have in your home. Ours was a small intimate gathering, he added real style without being over- powering. Clearly very talented and I am sure would be fantastic whatever the occasion.

Really easy booking system. Paul came to our house to perform for a private party of 30 guests. He is such a warm, easy going guy with a great sense of humour. Nothing was too much for him. Dealing with lots of random requests, playing an extra set at short notice and dealing with some rather over excited, drunken guests! He is professional and very talented. An incredible voice and brilliant pianist.

Having worked with Bamalamaloo for many years and booked them at multiple international venues I can happily say they are a dream to work with. Fantastic musicians, excellent entertainment and a professional attitude at all times. I look forward to working with Paul for many years to come and would highly recommend.

Lara, Paul and team recent joined us to entertain our guests at a customer event and what a performance. From the gentle first set accompanying dinner they really made an impression, with the dance floor grooving non-stop once dinner was over. Absolutely fantastic
