Leos Strings had plenty of performances to listen to on their website; we used them to learn about them and to make our decision to hire them for our event. We was amazed at how many different types of songs they could play! Rachel especially helped us with planning the event too. The quarter did an amazing job at our event and the guests were especially happy with their work. They added a real aura of beauty to the event and were real consummate professionals at what they were doing. Thank you for doing so well and being a part of our event!
I have used Niké on several occasions now - one being my wedding and, because we found her so amazing, my daughters wedding too! I found her professional as well as very talented and flexible enough to compose just the right set on both occasions. Thank you Niké. I would definitely recommend her for your special occasion.
WOW! Philip was fantastic! I booked him to play at my 50th birthday party in the Highlands (yes he was willing to travel 4 hours to get there - awesome!). As I live in New Zealand it felt like a bit of a risk booking an act through PopTop with no personal recommendations. However Philip was great at sending me set lists and video clips so I had more of an idea what I was booking. We were just a small crowd of 22 people, so I wasn't sure if anyone would even want to dance, preferring to chat and chill out....but no! I've never seen so many men on the dance floor having a rip-roaring time of it. Everyone at the party was so complimentary of Philip's voice and performance (his video clips don't do his voice justice - he is a highly skilled vocalist), and he played a mix of electric and acoustic guitar, and a great wide range of material, judging the audience well. We were in quite a small space, but he judged the volume correctly and had fantastic lights which just made the whole evening even more professional and spot-on. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone - he was the highlight of the whole weekend of partying!
