"I booked Vernon to play for my 65th birthday party after reading other reviews about him. I have to say that we were not disappointed, he made the party extra special and all my guests enjoyed his music and said what a really nice guy he is. He even backed me when I did a couple of songs myself.

"We booked Vernon for a family celebration at a cottage in North Yorkshire and he did not disappoint! Vernon caught the mood just right and his guitar playing and vocals are excellent.
