  • "the performance of a really high standard"
    This testimonial was entered by Darren Jones on 24 May 2019

    Darren did a fantastic job with his acoustic performance at our wedding. Alot of the guests commented on the quality and wide range of songs and styles he was able to play. (Including some songs he had learnt specifically from our requests) Not only was the performance of a really high standard but he was very quick and helpful with any correspondence. Another 2 members also joined him in the evening to form a band and that was also really great! Would highly recommend and great value for an amazing service! Thanks again, Ian & Charlotte
