I can never thank Pete enough for the perfect performance he gave at my Dads graveside service. Pete’s playing on the day brought tears of sadness to tears of great memories of our Dad . I could not fault this gentlemen ! Thank you.

Dear Peter I just wanted to thank you for playing on Saturday - you were brilliant and made a huge difference to the service. I have been told that it was the most beautiful service they had ever been to! Everything went so well and we had an amazing day - Amy and Mike radiated happiness which was infectious and we danced the night away! Rather sad it’s all over. Thank you again. Kind regards Charlotte

Lucy and myself would like to thankyou on behalf of Laura and Tom for the wonderful performance and rendition of "beyond the sea" for their wedding ceremony. It was perfect for her special day and for you to travel such a distance to Edinburgh is phenomenal and shows your dedication to your music and professionalism.We were very grateful you could do this for us at such short notice and once again we thank you.
