"Well what can I say!

Simon was fantastic. Engaging, professional and a staggering guitar player.

He gauged his audience perfectly and picked the best songs. An absolute gent to talk to and even hung around after his slot and engaged with everyone.

He made my wife’s night and I would book him again in an instant. If you’re after great music played immaculately then you need look no further.

Thank you Simon. Until next time.

I booked Simon as the entertainment for a team building day I had organised for the banking group BNP Paribas and he was absolutely fantastic. He had everyone up dancing and singing and his song choice was brilliant. He was very accommodating and patient as he had to go on later than initially scheduled - overall he was just great to work with. I shall definitely be booking Simon again.

I thought Simon was true professional.
We had a party of 50 guest and a lot of my friends wanted to know where I had found this singer. My friends all loved the music.
My party was a huge success due to Simons song choices and performance.
I would highly recommend him for an event like that again.
