Melissa and Reece played at our wedding on Saturday and we couldn't recommend them more. Whether singing an old classic or a more current song, Melissa's beautiful, soulful voice transforms it into something so special. They both put so much work into preparing and performing their set, the result is perfect, and they made a classy and magical addition to our day. Have your tissues at hand though, when Melissa started singing one of our special requests it moved us to tears!

Was a delight to have Melissa & Reece at Browns Bar & Brasserie to see in the New Year. Beautiful sound and great song choices and we can't wait to have them back. We had the pleasure of hearing 3, 45 Minute sets and we had fantastic feedback from all our guests. It was the perfect tempo and arrangment for our dining guests. Looking forward to working with you more this year! - Thank you, from Abbey, James and all the team at Browns Brighton
