Phil was absolutely brilliant right from the first enquiry. He was totally accommodating regarding the type of event I wanted, choice of tracks and even provided music between his sets. My event was a 50th Birthday Party and Phil had the whole room on its feet. We have had so many compliments about Phil- a total professional who certainly knows how to make a Party go with a bang !! No one wanted the party to end - every track was fab and Phil’s voice was wonderful - we would definitely book him ...
