Peter performed while people were having drinks and snacks at the Festejar in Bournemouth square. The ambience that Peter created was absolutely lovely, evocative and not overpowering. People could still converse quite happily while Peter was playing some lovely guitar music in the background. I can highly recommend him for any occasion including weddings and functions as his music provides the perfect backdrop to a relaxing occasion.

"Peter is a very talented guitarist who played at our wedding ceremony. He was kind, professional and easy to communicate with throughout the whole process. He played exactly what we wanted and everyone thought he was excellent at the ceremony. His repertoire is very extensive and can provide a huge amount of choice in song selection, albeit from a somewhat older era.

I would thoroughly recommend Peter for any event and would consider hiring him again in the future."
