From customers:

James F, 4 years ago

Absolutely perfect, I couldn't have dreamed of better support for our magic moment. A brilliant musician, who's energy and style was the perfect romantic accompaniment, Emmett even became a willing conspirator in the lead up to 'the big question', acting as a busker when we met him, then following us through London onto a bridge, playing as we walked. Going the extra mile, he even learned a couple of new songs for us too - helping to craft the perfect moment, and delivered them exquisitely. Friendly and helpful throughout, he was able to offer advice on how to plan the event, routings and even scoped out a backup plan in case of rain. Emmett - I can't thank you enough, you took the night to the next level and we'll remember that for the rest of our lives. I've got your nunber for the wedding too! See you next time... (10 / 10)

Joe A, 4 years ago

Emmet performed at our wedding recently... A total pro and really great to deal with. He could keep the whole crowd entertained and was able to add the songs we wanted. Highly recommended 10/10 (10 / 10)
