Sophie joined us at our home in North London and played some jazz for our guests as they arrived. My brother and I had arranged a surprise 50th for my mother and Sophie was part of the big surprise. All our guests and my family thoroughly enjoyed her music and Sophie was an absolute pleasure! Should I ever require live music I shall definitely contact Sophie again!
