Neil was a pleasure to deal with and was relaxed, professional and a great crowd pleaser. He adapted his second set to include more modern pieces and our locals thoroughly enjoyed their experience in our beer garden with many asking when The Goodfella will be returning. I would not hesitate to recommend this act to other venues and look forward to arranging a further booking in the future. Thank you Neil !

An excellent singer and entertainer. Neil tailored his performance to our event, which was my Mum and Dads 60th Wedding Anniversary. He made it feel personal. He was professional throughout and listened to what we needed. I would not hesitate to book him again.
Thank you Neil!

We hired The Goodfella for my parent's 60th wedding anniversary afternoon tea party. Neil was fantastic from start to finish. Really engaging and even specially learnt some of mum and dad's favourite requested songs. Very accommodating and sang and sang! We had lots of messages from friends saying how much they loved the 'party' and how good Neil was. I would most definitely recommend The Goodfella.
