Richard Hadfield/ Blue Eyed Soul
Charismatic frontman and Britain's Got Talent winner, Richard Hadfield with his band Blue Eyed Soul is bound to complete your evening. Whether you're looking for a vintage swing to your event or the class and sophistication of 'The Great Gatsby', Blue Eyed Soul will leave your guests wanting more. With a huge catalogue of songs, Hadfield and the Blue Eyed Soul can keep it mellow during dinner with their renditions of 'Summertime' and 'Moon River', and equally kick it into gear on the dance floor with the likes of 'Ole Black Magic' and 'I've Got Rhythm'. If you're looking for a Post Modern Jukebox feel, look no further. This band has unique renditions of chart toppers from across the ages including the likes of 'Shape of You' and 'Billie Jean' which fuse seemlessly with the old school standards like 'Fly me to the Moon'. If you have a special song that you'd like 'jazzing up', Blue Eyed Soul can personalise a new arrangement just for you! Fresh from the Royal Albert Hall, the Tokyo 'Blue Note' and NYC's 'Smalls' jazz club, Hadfield and Blue Eyed Soul are perfect for your event, big or small.

We just want to say how amazing Richard Hadfield and Blue Eyed Soul were at our wedding on Saturday. As well as Richard's great singing and the band's fantastic playing, we loved Richards' interaction with our guests, dancing with a number of them individually and getting many of them to join him on the dance floor whilst he was singing in their midst. Simply brilliant. We particularly loved Richard's more intimate jazz set in our chill-out room after our main evening event, which included a fantastic acapella section that Richard performed at the end. His rendition of “My Funny Valentine” was simply breathtaking. A truly amazing voice. We just wish we could have bottled it for re-living over and over again.
Thank you again to Richard and Blue Eyed Soul for making our wedding truly memorable. Everyone is still talking about them, not just their performance (which made our evening) but what really great and fun guys they all are and how they were so friendly and down to earth. All our guests really loved them.
We would highly recommend Richard and Blue Eyed Soul to all lovers of great music for their wedding or other event. The band clearly love what they do and that comes out in their high level performance. Best of luck guys for your future.

Just brilliant. Will book these guys again. Made the whole event a different class. Great choice of jazz songs and love their twists on the chart hits. Something different that’s for sure.
