It was a pleasure to have Alex and his band play at our wedding. We’ve been following the group for a number of years and they brought all their energy to our weekend. On the Friday night they played jazz, while on Saturday they upped the tempo to funk, which quickly filled the dancefloor. A talented group! They went out of their way to fit into our arrangements and did everything with a smile. A delight!

Alex is a hugely talented musician. I have seen him perform many times over the years, solo and in groups, and couldn’t think of anyone better to play some live solo piano during our wedding reception. We were so happy that he was available! He truely played his socks off, playing jazz standards from memory and some of his own musics, and was a big favourite with all the guests. We had to deal with COVID rules threatening to change, but Alex kept in communication throughout and understood our situation. In summary he is a talented professional and would thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting a touch of class to their event.
