Booking Andy to play at our wedding was one of the best investments we have made. He was knowledgeable, understanding and accommodating before the event and he performed above and beyond our expectations on the day. His choice of music and his voice helped calm our nerves before the ceremony, helped us create an unforgettable ceremony and helped us relax after. Thank you Andy for being amazing and we wish you lots and lots more happy customers.
