Solid Bloke, Talented Musician & a PERFECT addition to our day!

We approached Alan a couple of weeks out from our wedding in September 2021, and he was thankfully free! Alan came recommended from one of our musician contacts and he was perfect for our day.
Alan's style is 'smooth jazz', which provided the PERFECT atmosphere for our drinks reception. As well as being talented (making a couple of our guests cry with the music, no lie!), he is a genuinely great bloke and really went the extra mile - he learned a few of our favourite songs and then provided a recording of them after the event as a memento. Particularly impressive given the short timelines we hired him under, too.
Logistically Alan merely required a plug socket and an (armless) chair, was flexible, and came in at a really reasonable.
I would recommend Alan to anyone.
