Great performance on a very warm afternoon. Read the audience well and audience feedback after event was very positive. Leighton was a very nice guy to deal with and very friendly. Would not hesitate to book again.

John was an awesome performer at our wedding. I came on time and was very professional. Before wedding he made sure that he understand our needs regarding timing, songs and was very quick with response. We all loved his singing and his flexibility to adapt to the moment. We want recommend John to everybody, as he made our special day more memorable. Thank you. K&Q

  • How can event planners pay for your services?

    I would much prefer a bank transfer the week of so we don't have to be dealing with money on the night, but if it is easier for the client I will accept cash.
