Amazing performance

Choosing Matt to perform at our wedding was a no-brainier for us. We’ve been watching him perform for a number of years and he is so talented. He’s an amazing singer with a huge range of songs under his belt and his energetic and charismatic performances have always been superb. Matt pulled out all the stops at the wedding and all my guests loved the music. The songs he chose to play were perfect for us and he was also great at communicating with the venue to make sure everything went to plan. Matt’s performance was the highlight of the day to us and to so many of our guests!

Exceptional

Matt played our party and rocked, from our first chats through to the evening itself Matt was very engaged and tailored our evening to suit our musical tastes and style, and most importantly got people dancing.

Couldn't have asked for better

Reliable, great communication skills and really knew how to work the crowd. Great tunes and really accommodating with our requests. Would definitely hire for my next wedding (lack of emojis here lets that joke down)

More than we could imagine.

Bearfoot Soul helped make our day fantastic. from contact to the ceremony, there was constant contact and demos of the song list we wanted. We had Matt with us all day. his professionalism is second to none. Timings for when the music was needed were spot on and a happy, cheery guy. I would recommend him for anything not just weddings. The name is well suited to Matt, he has a real passion for what he does and sang from his soul, which shows in his work.
Thank you.

Wedding reception

If you want your wedding reception to start with a bang, then Matt White is your guy! 100% guaranteed to get the party started, with an eclectic repertoire and charismatic performance. Nothing was too much, he even took the time to learn our first dance song for us which made it all the more special. His talent matches his professionalism, making sure the sets ran smoothly and keeping to the timings of the evening. I cannot thank Matt enough for putting the cherry on top of our most favourite day

Our experience with BearFootSoul was second to none, highly recommend.

BearFootSoul not only sang at our wedding but sang me down the aisle and sang our first dance. Matt has left us with such special memories as he made the ceremony more intimate. We had so many guests asking who Matt was as they were blown away with not only his singing but his professionalism, effort and approach to the whole day/evening. He gave us full communication regarding the song choices and demo which filled us with confidence. Thank you very much BearFootSoul.
