Ali played last night for my 50th birthday party. He was superb - played all the songs we wanted, played and sang beautifully and really got the crowd going. Really good to work with and strongly recommended.

Ali played at our wedding reception at the Tower of London - he was brilliant! Great set of songs, great voice and volume, just helped us create the relaxed ambiance we hoped for - we highly recommend him and would use him again, a lovely guy to, great communication in the lead up to the event and no dramas - all perfect - thank you Ali.

Ali was the best at our reception drinks and canapés for our outside wedding! He had such a lovely voice and played the guitar wonderfully.
Ali had so many songs to choose from that we couldn’t narrow it down to favourites for our 90 minute slot we chose, so asked Ali to decide based on the guests and chose some great songs! It really topped our wedding off having a singer so if you are considering booking Ali, don’t hesitate and do it!!
Ali has such good communication throughout and really pleased we had him. Thank you 🙂 Natalie and Ian

I had the most lovely evening and Ali was incredible, he brought the right vibe to the party and his voice was pure gold. Ali is so talented and he felt like a friend the minute he came to the house. Ali performed for three hours and my friends and family were blown away. My requests were all played and would readily rebook for another evenings entertainment.
