Chris is a fantastic singer and he judged his performance just right for the audience for my parent’s 50th Wedding Anniversary.
Our guests ranged from children to elders so he sang a brilliant mix of Rat Pack, Jazz, Swing, Elvis and modern songs.
On the day, and since, our guests have been telling us how great Chris was. We highly recommend him. Thanks Chris for making the event a special one.
