I booked Jonny husband 40th birthday and I was slightly worried about booking a musicians for only a party of 12! However I really need not of worried as it was AMAZING! Jonny was such a joy to have play, his playlist was extensive to choose from and he even did a special request at the end of the night and played the Mario theme tune for my Mario obsessed 6 year old off the cuff with no notice! What a lovely, relaxed chap! Everyone is still talking about Jonny and hi sue performance days on and I’m sure we will for years! He is truly amazing and hopefully my husband might book him for money in 5 years time!

Jonny is a very talented artist who listened to the requirements of our event and put together 2 excellent sets that went down very well with our members. He arrived and was set up in plenty of time and was very professional and courteous in his approach. I would have no hesitation in booking Jonny for another event or recommending him to anyone else considering hiring him.

Jonny performed at our ceremony, drinks reception and wedding breakfast. He was flexible with his timings as some parts of the day went faster than expected. So many people asked where we found him and lots have said they will likely book him to perform when they get married. He played exactly what we wanted and adapted timings well to fit the ceremony. He also chose appropriate music to play for the drinks reception and wedding breakfast. Some of our guests are huge David Gray fans and said that he reminded them of him, so he played some David Gray songs for them and they were delighted. He was absolutely lovely to deal with and we highly recommend booking with him.

Jonny played two sets at our wedding day, he arrived before our ceremony had finished and was playing shortly after for all our guests while we had a drinks reception. He surpassed our expectations and played a great mixture of songs, some that we had requested and others that fit in with the genre's we clearly liked. Jonny had great people skills and spoke to many of our guests all of whom loved him and his music. The sound quality was fantastic and not overbearing on our special day, both young and old guests appreciated this. Jonny's second set involved playing through some of the wedding breakfast up until our main was served this involved him moving his equipment into another area but he done this quickly with no problems. He was very polite and came to say thank you to my wife and I and then spoke at length with my parents. Jonny playing at our wedding was fantastic and we would fully recommend him to anyone planning a party, wedding or event. Thank you Jack and Gemma Goodman

I struggled to find the words to describe just how great he was! He was without a doubt the best wedding singer I have ever seen (and we've been to a lot!) and the atmosphere was simply amazing - the room never stopped 'buzzing' and people never stopped dancing from start to finish. I still can't believe he was just one person, it was like having a full band in the room...and for half the price!! We had an awful start to the day, with set back after set back and the worst weather in history for a wedding... yet Jonny managed to turn the day around for us and make the evening the best of our lives. Not only did he have a fantastic voice and song choice, but he is genuinely a great guy with an obvious passion for music. Myself, my new husband and every single one of our guests recommend him a million percent if you want an evening of fun, partying and dancing! We can't thank him enough!!
