* * * * * Review from Tracey Carlin 19 Nov
We booked Russell for our annual function and were not disappointed. The feedback I have had from all our guests was outstanding. From the first song, through the DJ set and to the very last dance, he had everyone up dancing, singing along and having a thoroughly good time. I would highly recommend him to anyone (Just don’t book him at the same time that we want him!!!).

Russell and the band performed at our sons 18th birthday 14/Oct  and both he and the musicians were exemplary. Russell personalised his performance to the delight and amusement of all. I can’t recommend him highly enough. Everyone has been in touch saying what a great night it was. Thank you so much Russell

Excellent, he exuded professionalism from start to finish. The quality of the sound, the singing and the songs were excellent.
* * * * * Review from Cathy Jepson 
He was just fantastic! Everyone was very impressed by the quality of his performance. I had been a little nervous about how a ‘live’ performer would go down at this event, but Russell was just perfect
* * * * * Review from Mike Sharratt 
Russell was the ultimate professional and I feel that his contribution to night was above and beyond what was expected. The performance from him and the band really helped to make the evening a truly great event, so on behalf of me and my now wife I can’t thank him enough. We would definitely book him again in the future.

We had so many compliments on Russell’s performance. We were more than happy with his performance, and he sounds fantastic. We were so pleased that everyone enjoyed it as much as we did. The crowd participation was just perfect. The brief chance I had to chat with him, he was so lovely and pleasant to deal with. He looked the part, and sounded the part!

A professional and talented singer who we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. Many thanks for your fantastic performance that kept us and our guests dancing all night.

Everyone said he was brilliant even those not used to his type of music. We’d chatted about music before the event and I’d mentioned I liked Perry Como’s Magic Moments and Russell incorporated it into his set. I would say that Russell made the evening for me and my husband. A great big thank you to him.

Hi Russell

I don’t think the words ‘thank you’ quite cut it, but THANK YOU all soooooo much for Saturday.

You were absolutely brilliant, your set list fitted the event perfectly and the guests have done nothing but compliment how fantastic you all were!! You really did help set the tone perfectly for the event.

Hope you all had a safe journey home, we really do appreciate the distance you travelled to play for us!

Russell Shaun and his band created a truly magical evening of music for our wedding and made our day even more special. Our friends and family had a fantastic evening with lots of smiles and laughter, and of course singing and dancing! We can’t thank him enough! What a star!
