Last M, 4 years ago

I met Simon at the Budock Vean Hotel, where he played for my wife and I and many of our friends at our annual get together (as well as providing easy listening music for all the hotels guests at dinner). Simon is extremely personable and a very talented musician. He added a wonderful aspect to our gathering; playing an extensive repertoire of jazz music - that we had had the chance to choose. I would recommend Simon to anyone who wants that extra special "something" at an event. (10 / 10) David Spratt

Chris and I would like to thank you for coming all the way to Gloucester last Friday to play at our wedding. Your performance surpassed our expectations, and we had an unbelievable number of comments about how fabulous the music was. Thank you for helping to make our wedding day truly memorable! (10 / 10) Jo and Chris
