Jess is a great, talented singer with beautiful voice. She can create a nice, relaxing atmosphere. She is passionate about what she is doing, put people on ease and can bring the spark to her entertainment.
Our Homeowners also commented about her friendly, kind personality and she was able to bring everyone together and create a sense of unity. She was also immaculate in her appearance and her performance was just stunning!

Where do we start?! We hired Jess to sing at my Husband's 70th Birthday Party. We were very much looking forward to meeting Jess on the night and hearing her sing. She did not disappoint! Amazing, beautiful lady with a fabulous voice. All our guests loved her and asked how we found her! Our only regret was that she only sang for an hour! Would absolutely recommend this lovely lady to anyone who is looking for a classy vintage singer. Thank you Jess, love Mandy & Don xxxx

We were over the moon with Jess. She was amazing and made our day fantastic. She was happy to start earlier than previously requested and was a dream to have at the wedding. I wish I could write all of the compliments we had about Jess but I do not have space, everyone said how amazing she was. I highly recommend Jess for your events. I'm so happy we hired Jess, she sang our first dance and Husband and Husband beautifully. Thank you.
