Just WOW!!

The (now) husband and I had the pleasure of first seeing Andrew perform at my sister鈥檚 wedding five years ago and we absolutely loved him, so we were delighted that we were able to book him to play at our own Wedding. He did not disappoint! He exceeded expectations (which were already pretty high having already seen him previously) and his musical talents speak for themselves. We received so many compliments about his performance that I'm sure we'll see him at friends' weddings in the future!

Andrew鈥檚 sunny disposition and quick humour made him an instant hit with guests before he had even started his set, and he blended in perfectly to the surroundings, with his music entertaining everyone there. Luckily we had a beautiful sunny day, so Andrew could set up outside and perform for everyone in the grounds of our venue, to the delight of passers-by who also sang nothing but his praises to us as well. We opted for the Full Day Package from 24 Live and the additional Cajon Drummer for the evening reception, and that was also a massive hit! What a party!

In the build up to the wedding, on the day and even after the wedding, Andrew has been incredibly thorough, accommodating and just an absolute dream to deal with. He is so, so friendly and personable, and he goes above and beyond to ensure that the experience he gives you is the perfect one. Nothing was ever too much trouble, and he made us feel completely at ease, he is a true professional. He leaves no stone unturned and his attention to detail is flawless.

Andrew really is a class act and an absolute gentleman, not to mention all kinds of talented. He made our day really special and our Wedding wouldn鈥檛 have been the success it was without him there. We cannot recommend him highly enough. We can鈥檛 wait to see him perform again in the future! Thank you so much for everything Andrew. 馃槉

All the very best,

Chantal & Tom xxx

The best around!!

We can鈥檛 thank Andrew enough for playing during our drinks reception on our wedding day, it was the perfect start to our celebrations. He really set the scene and he played a fantastic mix of songs that all our guests enjoyed - he played for 3 hours straight because our guests loved him so much and didn鈥檛 give him chance for a break! Everyone raved about him and he is an incredible talent.

During the build up to the wedding Andrew got in touch a number of times to confirm all details and make sure we were happy with everything, he responded quickly to any queries and was always friendly, accommodating and professional.

If you need a musician for any event or wedding we cannot recommend Andrew enough, you won鈥檛 find anyone better, do not hesitate and get him booked!

Wedding reception

From contacting Andrew 12 months ago to arrange entertainment for our wedding reception, It was the most stress free event I have ever had to arrange, Andrew was fantastic from start to finish, he kept in regular contact all the way through to the event, nothing was too much trouble for him and he goes over and beyond of what you would expect of him.
We had Andrew all day and then Chris joined him for the evening, absolute professionals all the way through, we couldn鈥檛 recommend them highly enough, 170 day guests and more in the evening were blown away with their quality of performance throughout, to go with that genuinely nice guys as well.
Thank you 24 live acoustic for playing a big part in maki g our day so special.

Blown Away!

Andrew was amazing from the moment we booked him, super friendly, amazing song choice list and always accommodating. We knew we were in good hands. Andrew was with us for the full day, singing for our ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception as a duo. Andrew learnt 2 songs on our request, and wow... They were incredible! The only thing we are sad about is that we couldn't sit and listen to him all day. All our guests commented on how amazing Andrew was and we are so glad we booked him. It was our pleasure to have him as part of our entire day.

Just wow!!

We booked Andrew and Chris for our wedding in September, and we don鈥檛 have enough words to thank them for everything they did.
Andrew is absolutely amazing, from the moment we contacted him through to the planning process and the day itself, he was so genuine and helpful, and it was a pleasure to have him as part of our day. He set the tone of the day perfectly from the moment guests arrived at the ceremony, to getting everyone up and dancing all night long. He even helped us to create our perfect first dance getting everyone involved too! He honestly goes above and beyond with the package he offers, from learning songs as a special request, to moving around the venue to make sure he was always providing entertainment. Our guests are still raving about him!

We can鈥檛 recommend Andrew enough!

Out of this world!

Well what can I say, we are the one's that feel privileged to have Andrew and Chris perform at our wedding with how booked up they currently are which shows how truly amazing they are. They were exceptional!
From start to finish from meeting Andrew and to even post wedding they were friendly, organised, knowledgable, talented and clearly love what they do which resonates and makes a unforgettable experience for us and our guests. Considering gate crashing a wedding just to see them perform again! Would highly recommend for weddings and any other special occasion. We had chilled relaxing vibes for our arrival drinks and then Andrew and Dan as a due in the evening which really got the party started! Thanks to you both for making such a memorable day and night!

Amazing!

Wow! Andrew recently performed for us during our ceremony and drinks reception and he was amazing. He made the atmosphere during the ceremony so beautiful and his voice had a big impact on our guests, they could not stop complimenting his talents. He kept in touch with us from the moment we booked him until our big day and nothing was ever too much trouble. Would 100% recommend him for any wedding day our only regret was that we did not have him with us longer! Thank you so so much 馃槂

No words are enough!

Hands down the best wedding decision we made! Andrew absolutely made our day and our guests were in absolute awe of him.
He played right from our confetti toss to our speeches. Everything in the build up was so easy, replies were super quick and Andrew played our favourite songs which we will remember forever. We had a perfect day from start to finish and we鈥檙e so glad Andrew was a part of it. X

Amazing! Would love an excuse to book again!

Andrew provides a professional service from start to finish. His communication was outstanding throughout the process from booking to performing on our special day. His performance really made our wedding, it was perfect. Every guest complimented how wonderful he & his music had been throughout the day. We would recommend booking 24 Live to anyone.

Amazing from start to finish!

All we can say is wow! Andrew has been fantastic. From first booking he鈥檚 made everything easy! We had him perform solo for our ceremony and drinks reception and then as a duo for our evening reception. Andrew tweaked his packages to suit exactly what we wanted. He has a massive song choice list which and lets you have a big choice in what he performs and has kept regular contact throughout. On the day as a solo and a duo they are absolutely brilliant! Lovely friendly talents guys. So many of our guests came to us and said how brilliant they were. I鈥檝e had guests say if they get married they will 100% be booking. I honestly can鈥檛 find any words to explain how much we loved your performances. If anyone is looking for a wedding singer please don鈥檛 hesitate in booking!
Thank you for making our day perfect :)

100% the best wedding entertainment ever!

We cannot recommend Andrew enough, from the moment we had heard him at our first wedding fayre we knew we needed him to help us celebrate our big day.

His communication was outstanding despite being so in demand. No questions were too much and he was very patient, speaking both over email and on the phone (whatever suited best). His song choices are vast and he's not afraid to try something new upon request. We asked him to play according to the room in our evening reception and he did not disappoint! No one wanted to go home and it was such a brilliant atmosphere. It is not an exaggeration when we say every single one of our guests commented on how amazing he was and asked for his contact information!

I honestly cannot find enough words to describe how amazing you are Andrew, thank you so much for being available for our wedding- the memories will last forever.

Exceptional

Andrew鈥檚 talent, professionalism, and personable nature truly sets him apart. We received numerous compliments from our guests about his performance, and many expressed their desire to hire him for their own events. We highly recommend Andrew to anyone seeking a skilled and engaging musician who can elevate any occasion. Thank you, Andrew, for adding an extra touch of magic to our wedding day!

Absolutely fantastic!

Andrew and Chris were just amazing!! We had Andrew for our ceremony and drinks reception and he was joined by Chris for our evening reception. From the get go Andrew was brilliant, checking in with us at intervals before the wedding and also taking time to discuss with us which songs from his varied set list we would like played on our day which was really important to us. Andrew learnt a couple of songs for our Wedding outside of his usual genre and performed them amazingly. We cannot recommend 24 live enough for your wedding/event, 2 absolutely sound guys who are brilliant at what they do and getting the party going.
