Some recent client reviews:
PRIVATE WEDDING at Durn House, Portsoy, Banff - Maggie & Kenny P. - Sep 2021
"Debbie and Fernando played at our wedding and they were truly amazing. Debbie has such a beautiful voice and Fernando adds something special to the duo. They have a wide selection of songs spanning over 60’s to current day songs. The age group at our wedding was from teenagers to 80 years old and everyone loved them. We were on the floor the whole night. We were especially delighted that they learnt our first dance which was ‘A Man’s a Man for a’ that’ and were able to perform it in the style of Paola Nutini which is what we had asked for. They knocked the ball out the park in their performance. I can’t thank them enough for such an enjoyable night."
PRIVATE WEDDING at Carnoustie Golf Hotel and Spa, Carnoustie - Aug 2021 - Mairead R.

Blend Coffee Lounge, Perth• April 26, 2019
We were fortunate to have the duo Debbie and Fernando playing at this venue one night. They are an acoustic duo with a great mix of their own cover arrangements of modern and classic songs and they were a real pleasure to listen to. I would definitely recommend them for anyone looking for an upbeat and engaging acoustic duo to hire for their own private event or public performance.
Cafe 269 Perth• April 12, 2019
Debbie and Fernando performed on 12th April at our café restaurant in Perth. Their choice of setlist was a particular advantage and created a friendly melodic atmosphere that really entertained our customers. Throughout their set, they were professional while at the same time being warm and welcoming to new arrivals. I would highly recommend this acoustic act for events and functions.
Matt Braybrook• Jan. 19, 2019
We've had Debbie perform for us twice now and I have to say, what a voice. Her musical range is superb and she gets everyone in the party mood, I will definatley be booking her again to perform for us. all of our customers have informed me that they have really enjoyed their night when Debbie sings. If anyone is thinking of hosting an event I would put Debbie as first on my list.
Pauline Leitch, Winter Wonderland Festival Organiser• Dec. 9, 2018
