Lara performed at our wedding drinks reception a couple of weeks ago and we couldn't have been happier. From when we first made the booking Lara was helpful and professional and she has so many songs available that we found it difficult to pick from so many favourites for her to play on the day. Lara sang beautifully and the piano/keyboard looked and sounded brilliant. So many of our guests came up to tell us how great Lara sounded and we were so happy to have her as part of our special day.

Lara was a fantastic booking for my wife’s birthday party mixing background performance during guests arrival and dinner then upped the tempo into dancing. Everyone was so impressed and Lara’s prompt arrival etc reassured. Very highly recommended by us and our friends.

Lara, Paul and team recent joined us to entertain our guests at a customer event and what a performance. From the gentle first set accompanying dinner they really made an impression, with the dance floor grooving non-stop once dinner was over. Absolutely fantastic

I had Lara and Paul at my 50th Garden party/BBQ. They were amazing everyone had a great time and complimented them. They made me feel so relaxed and played such a variety of songs that suited all ages. Can't wait to see them again. Fun Fun Fun
