Thank you Tony for a brilliant evening of entertainment. You pitched your show perfectly giving the audience the chance to chat over coffees and drinks after the meal with some well known romantic songs (not too loud that we could still hear each other chatting!) and then plenty of more upbeat ones filling the dance floor . The feedback from guests was so complimentary--you have a great voice and kept the evening flowing. I have no hesitation in recommending you highly. Thanks again for helping to make the evening a huge success,Gillian.
Excellent afternoon with trio of piano, cello and violin. Great performance and selection of music. Happy to accommodate special requests and also happy to play outside for part of the event. Everything was perfect! Many thanks!
