Niki was friendly and helpful when getting the right music for the wedding couple. She was brilliant on the day and really gave a fantastic performance for the guests! A pleasure to work with.

Niki played at our wedding reception on the 26th July 2019. Niki was amazing. She kept in touch with us before the day and we agreed a playlist. On the day her music was incredible it really added magic to our special day. We recommend Niki as a true professional who will add sparkle to an event.

As a professional vocalist myself I know how important it is selecting the right music for any Event. Niki set during my Cousins Wedding was just perfect and she played beautifully. The sound was great and volume just right. I absolutely recommend her.

I am a publican and have been booking entertainment for over 30 years. Niki is a superb saxophonist, by far the best i've seen. I booked Niki in her duo Strawberry Blonde on the off chance, but really speaking these girls are far too good for pubs!
