Absolutely dreadful, did not follow brief for New Years Eve Party, did not interact with audience, sang flat, had to tell him to do party music which we contracted him to do, couldnt even play Auld langs Syne on time, asked to stop playing, he cost us alot of money in alcohol sales as guests walked out and new guests are obvioulsy not going to book thinking that this is our normal type of entertainment - have received lots of complaints from guests about the entertainment and have filed for compensation

Unbelievable! Clearly doesn't want to pay! I have played leading roles in London's West End. Notably, Double Jay in Saturday Night Fever (Original cast) at the prestigious London Palladium Theatre and Skye in Mamma Mia at the Prince Edward Theatre in London. I had a recording contract with Sony Records and toured Europe supporting the Backstreet Boys and a record contract with PoIydor Records touring North America. I have been performing for 25 years and have never received a negative review in my entire career! EVER! "UNBELIEVABLE"

We recently booked Steve for my wife's 50th birthday party which we had at our home last weekend. We can thoroughly recommend Steve - he was fantastic both before and during the event. We loved that Steve was so open to our song suggestions and how we engaged with our guests. He also has a great voice and sang each song with energy and passion. Book Steve and you won't be disappointed!
