Sophie was a delight - not just for the lovely set which she delivered at my wife's 60th birthday party (which was very well received), but also for the manner in which she dealt with us, both before the party and during it. Strongly recommended!

I Booked Sophie for an Engagement Party as a surprise. From the point of booking up to the event Sophie kept me updated on Times, Tracks, any requirements, Organising an event/party can be stressful but I found the whole experience of booking, confirming, deposit being paid extremely straight forward and transparent.

Sophie asked about the tracks requested to be played and also set track lists, I had a specific request for a song which Sophie had not performed before or even knew how to perform. Nothing was too much trouble for Sophie, Who within a few weeks learned a brand new song and also performed it at the engagement!

The amount of people I have had ask where I booked sophie, How amazing the music and atmosphere was.

The DJ at the party was brilliant, but what a difference Live music makes, Sophie brought the venue alive.

Sophie interacted with everyone in the room whether they were up dancing on the dance floor or seated at their tables, everyone felt included within each performance.

The variety of songs is absolutely brilliant and catered to all ages of the guests we had at the event.

I found Sophie to be Extremely professional, very approachable and an amazing talent who we were lucky enough to find!

I would highly recommend Sophie if you are thinking of booking for any event! We will be using Sophie and also the Duo Sophie is apart of too for our future events!

Sophie you were absolutely Brilliant and thank you so much for making the night so special!!

"All my guests loved Sophie and I have had nothing but positive feedback about her.

She has been a delight to deal with during the booking/planning of my wedding and has been extremely accommodating to any special requests.
She has been quick to respond to any emails and questions in a very professional manner.

I would highly recommend Sophie to anyone.

Thank you for helping to make our wedding a memorable day."
