The jazz music complimented the evening perfectly and created a wonderful atmosphere for our guests. Thank you for being such a pleasure to work with. I shall be recommending your services to friends and colleagues.Louise Anderson, ManchesterAlastair was absolutely amazing! He played two sets for our Wedding. One was in the day when we were arriving at the venue, which was amazing. It was everything we imagined when we came over the bridge and walked up to our venue on the island where he was playing. It was really nice smooth music and then later on he played at the evening party and it was so much fun with dance music mixed into it. He did everything we asked of him & more. Moreover, he really helped make our wedding day the perfect day that it was and everyone was saying how wonderful he was. Very special entertainment. Thank you so much.Sarah Briscoe, West YorkshireAbsolutely Brilliantly!! Made the terrace session wonderful.Colin Williams, Anglesey Thank you so much for coming to play at Richard’s party.
