We were extremely happy with Curtis, his singing was great and he was most accommodating, Playing music between sets. Once we had discussed the program he just got on with it, no hassle, allowing us to enjoy the event. Great communication with him beforehand too.

Curtis played at my engagement party and he was great. Didn’t need any prompt to perform classics and new music which was entertaining for people of all ages.
Would highly recommend!

It was wonderful. Curtis took an order which could seem quite unusual. He had to perform in front of dozens of girls at a boarding school as a birthday present for one of them. He did absolutely amazing. The girls were singing along and the atmosphere was really great. Thanks to Curtis!
