'Had a lovely afternoon on mothers-day where the atmosphere was lovely, the duo who sang were great singing some fantastic songs. Our waitress was so helpful and couldn't do enough to make our afternoon special. The food was delicious especially my dessert.

"It would be too easy for me to say that Alex & Lydia were simply outstanding, and it would probably do them a disservice too. So, to qualify such high praise, let me first say that I regularly book live entertainment for various events and have done so for the past 30 years or more. From the outset Lydia was a delight to deal with in the pre-planning of their performance during our Christmas party night for 120 people of all ages. On arrival (at the pre-arranged time) both Alex and Lydia were extremely relaxed, yet professionally efficient in setting up their equipment in front of everyone, causing no inconvenience to anyone, including during their soundcheck. They started singing exactly on time and from the first note had the attention of everyone. Their musical versatility and ongoing rapport with the audience was excellent. Individually their voices were exceptional; as a duo they complimented each other perfectly, and together they provided a thoroughly entertaining night of vocal excellence across a wide range of musical genres that had people on the dance floor, or completely in awe, throughout.

These are two highly talented, motivated and extremely polite and respectful young entertainers, with a professionalism and desire to do a good job that not only exceeds their years, but is sadly not so common these days. The amount and sincerity of ongoing positive feedback I have received from everyone present is unprecedented and I will certainly be re-booking them in 2020 when we next repeat this event... my life would not be worth living if I did not! I could not recommend Alex & Lydia highly enough and I wish them both all the adulation they rightly deserve in what should surely be long and successful musical careers."
