was absolutely fabulous, a true professional and a league above any other performer I have seen. His attention to detail whilst singing the songs was brilliant, changing lyrics so that myself and the grooms name was in the songs pure genius. He interacted with my guests and made sure everyone had a good time. Steve’s voice is out of this world if you want to have a celebration then this is the man you want.
I want to thank Steve again for making our wedding celebration magical."

'Stephen has performed at a number of events here at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead including ‘The Glass Slipper Awards’. In true professional style his capacity to judge his audience is excellent! He is very adaptable, able to cater for all needs and expectations, thus ensuring that his audience has a fantastic time. Stephen is very entertaining, presentable and we can’t wait to have him perform here at the hotel again!'

Stephen will make your celebration amazing. We booked Stephen to sing at my Mams 80th Birthday Party in September and I found him to be very professional and friendly right from the first contact I had with him. He even asked if my Mam had a favourite song, which he learnt especially to sing for her on the night, which she was so happy about. Stephen sang Rat Pack songs in his first spot, which the guests listened to and sung along to. In his second spot he sang songs that filled the dance floor. Stephen has an amazing voice and a brilliant presence and rapport with everyone in the room. He makes jokes, comments on what is going on and changes words in the songs to fit in with the night. I would recommend Stephen to anyone. All of Mams guests have said what a brilliant performer Stephen was and what a great atmosphere there was in the room.

"I would like to recommend Stephen Halliday for any events, private parties and shows. I have had the privilege and great pleasure of seeing him perform on many occasions extremely professionally. He is not only an amazing singer, he is someone who makes any occasion very special and remembered by all. He is a true professional. Thank you Steve for giving not only my clients, but my mum, so many special memories.
