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 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.

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!
