"Catherine performed for us at our 50th wedding anniversary evening reception at the Grosvenor Hotel in Chester. I'd looked at a number of singers on-line, but Catherine seemed to fit the bill, not only because of her lovely voice and her wide and varied repertoire, but also because the warmth of her personality came through even on-line. We didn't want to be deafened by a disco; Catherine's performance meant that guests could listen, continue chatting, or dance.
I had many compliments about Catherine from guests, who thoroughly enjoyed her performance. Guests praised her voice, the repertoire of songs, and her professionalism. She sang our favourite romantic songs, lively numbers, and songs for the children. The period covered was from the 1960s to the present day.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Catherine for any event. She is very easy to liase with, an ultimate professional, a lovely personality, and a brilliant singer."
Samantha Jayne was amazing! Truly entertain for all ages and my guests now would like to book her as a result! One of my guest stated they have been to bbqs before but with the sax player this really topped the rest!
Hello Jess, thank you very much for your performance; it was very well received by all of us (especially me!) with several saying “you can get her again” to me. It was most enjoyable.
I will anyway be in touch late in the year when I get to organising the Benenden next set of meetings.
Thanks again, Mike
