Absolutely Fantastic. Jonny played at our wedding and everybody loved him. The French style music he played was exactly what we wanted and everybody thoroughly enjoyed it. Jonny was playing in Nottingham that evening but managed to come to Cambridge and play for us on our special day. What a nice chap. thank you Jonny.

Wow what a performance. Jonny played the accordion at our recent wedding and certainly entertained. All the guests commented on what a fabulous idea it was to have an accordion for a wedding and also what a talent he was. We would highly recommend Jonny for any event.
