He was really professional, had been in contact when we booked and arrived on the day with no fuss and just played terrific tunes. He was so professional it was a dream. Not only this, but he got everyone in the party mood. We had so many guests that commented on him. I would definitely recommend everyone to book him. 100 out of 10. Book, book, book!

Thank you so much for performing at our charity Wine and Cheese night. The jazz music complimented the evening perfectly and created a wonderful atmosphere for our guests. Thank you for being such a pleasure to work with. I shall be recommending your services to friends and colleagues.
Sarah Briscoe, Wedding Event, West Yorkshire
Alastair was absolutely amazing! He played two sets for our Wedding. One was in the day when we were arriving at the venue which was amazing. It was everything we imagined when we came over the bridge and walked up to our venue on the island where he was playing. It was really nice smooth music and then later on he played at the evening party and it was so much fun with dance music mixed into it. He did everything we asked of him & more. Moreover, he really helped make our wedding day the perfect day that it was and everyone was saying how wonderful he was. Very special entertainment. Thank you so much.
