Paul was great, my guests were happy with his work but wished they had more time with him (unfortunately we just didn’t have more time). He arrived in advance of time to get set up and prior to the event we shared several communication and Paul was very accommodating to our needs. I would definitely use him again and would recommend him to others

Paul was prompt and polite. He mingled throughout the evening producing hilariously accurate caricatures of the guests. A great addition to any party and a fantastic artist. Many thanks Paul.

What is your competitive advantage (special features)?

Certainly we can! Just let us know if there's a song you must have included and the band will make sure we know it.

As a caricature artist I may take one sor two hort comfort breaks. The band would normally break for a minimum of 20 mins between sets but this can be decided upon together with our start time.
