Jim was a fantastic addition to our wedding evening reception. We chose him because we loved the sound of his voice on his music videos, and he didn't disappoint. We wanted some popular classics which were laid back and chilled, but still upbeat and to get people on the dance floor and Jim was great at this. He then followed the rest of the evening DJing with lights, so great value for money. Great acoustic artist, Jim helped make the day special.
Highly recommended, thanks Jim!

I asked Jim to play for my wife's 50th up in Preston. He did a lovely job of playing for us and got the whole club dancing and singing along! Would definitely recommend him to anyone else. A lovely bloke too!
