"What a great singer and genuinely lovely person. Catherine played everything we asked for with great enthusiasm for the event and the songs; adding her own twist to some and generally engaging with all at the event.
We have recommended her to others not at the party and I sincerely hope this leads to other bookings.
Good Luck
Mark"

"Catherine performed at my 60th party like a true professional , great personality and a fantastic musician , all the guests were gushing about her performance both on the night and this week. She also helped me perform a couple of songs assisting me with encouragement ""positive thinking "" as she kept telling me together with technical and musical back up . I now understand how good she is as I destroyed my little repertoire. She will be my first port of call for my next big bash ! Hopefully in the near future. From the moment she arrived with her big smile until she left she was a big shining smiling star !!!"

"Catherine performed at my mothers 70th Birthday Party, I was initially looking for a Dolly Parton, Country & Western singer but the lookalike was too far away, I found Catherine here online and all I can say is... I was blessed to find her. She performed faultlessly and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. What a lovely, wonderful person. I would highly recommend her to anyone. Her voice is lovely, she exceeded expectations, was great with the children and we felt she belonged to our family.
Look forward to booking her again in the future.
Wishing you all the very best Catherine."

"""Catherine performed for us at our 50th wedding anniversary evening reception at the Grosvenor Hotel in Chester. I'd looked at a number of singers on-line, but Catherine seemed to fit the bill, not only because of her lovely voice and her wide and varied repertoire, but also because the warmth of her personality came through even on-line. We didn't want to be deafened by a disco; Catherine's performance meant that guests could listen, continue chatting, or dance.

I had many compliments about Catherine from guests, who thoroughly enjoyed her performance. Guests praised her voice, the repertoire of songs, and her professionalism. She sang our favourite romantic songs, lively numbers, and songs for the children. The period covered was from the 1960s to the present day.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Catherine for any event. She is very easy to liase with, an ultimate professional, a lovely personality, and a brilliant singer."""
