Andy was absolutely amazing, exactly what we wanted for our wedding day. Very professional to deal with, always responded promptly to any communication, he was flexible and a brilliant singer and musician. Our guests commented on how good he was. We would highly recommend him and if we needed a singer at a future event, we would definitely book him. He helped make our day special, thank you so much Andy.
