Sean was absolutely brilliant! All our guests loved him, he was there singing as we all arrived and even moved inside while we were eating. It was perfect! His playlist was just what we wanted and above all of that he was a lovely guy! Highly recommend, especially as he saved the day taking on our wedding less than 2 weeks before the day due to a cancellation. Very very happy!

Sean was brilliant! Right the way through the process he was helpful and highly professional. He arrived punctually and had even learned a few sea shanties for our themed event. He’s very talented and such lovely person.

Good morning Sean. I just wanted to tell you how much we all enjoyed your music on Sunday. Every single guest commented on both the music & your warm personality. You made the party extra special. Many thanks.

Sean was a pleasure to work with in the lead up and provided a fantastic performance on the day. He has a lovely sound and a wide repertoire of song choices which importantly (on this occasion) include Johnny Cash! I would highly recommend Sean for your event or special occasion.
