Aaron sings with soul, and has a smooth tone, with warm, rich vocals, and gives a lively, engaging and entertaining performance which audiences always enjoy, with songs to get audiences dancing and singing, as well as slower, romantic songs and ballads. Aaron is a versatile performer, and sings a wide range of styles, for all to enjoy, dance and sing to - including Swing, Pop and Soul - from 50s, 60s & 70s, to Modern hits. He covers Swing artists such as Michael Bublé and Frank Sinatra, Rock 'n' Roll artists Elvis Presley and The Beatles, Soul and Motown artists Stevie Wonder, The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, T.Rex, David Bowie, and modern singers Amy Winehouse and George Ezra. Aaron is sure to give a memorable night's entertainment.

He is also able to sing Classical music, such as the songs of Andrea Bocelli, suitable for occasions such as Weddings. He can also perform a more laid back Acoustic Pop set.

Aaron was fabulous for our party, he created a charming atmosphere, and sang beautifully all our favourite songs. He is a very talented young singer. He was a big hit with all the guests, and everyone was talking about his performance. I would certainly book him again! It made for a very memorable evening.

Aaron has a beautiful velvety tone which exudes warmth and character. His style of singing was remeiniscient of the likes of Elvis Presley, Sinatra and Dean Martin, yet uniquely his own. Very glad we booked him before he hits the big time!

Aaron created a great atmosphere, and performed brilliantly. He has a superb voice. A good mix of crooner-style songs and more upbeat ones, old and new, so everyone could enjoy. He was even able to sing a requested song, which meant a lot to us.
