Reviews & Kind Words

Knowing that I’ve added something special to a couple’s big day is so important to me! Below are some comments I have collated from previous bookers, taken from online reviews or letters/cards I have received from them. You can also read more feedback in the reviews section on my Facebook page.


Kate and Morgan at Kelmarsh Hall

James is utterly brilliant. He’s super talented, very accommodating and extremely friendly and enthusiastic. He worked really hard to make sure that the music played during our ceremony suited us and our tastes. All guests have been so complimentary about James. He added a touch of sophistication and class to the ceremony without being cliché. It was an absolute pleasure having him play at our wedding. He is truly exceptional!

Harmeet and Mitch cake toppers.
We cannot recommend James highly enough – he is genuinely brilliant! His music really added to the atmosphere and made our wedding feel extra special. All of our guests had nothing but compliments. James is also such a lovely guy – from the moment we reached out to him, he has been super friendly and accommodating. Thank you so much, James!

Ella and Harrison at Amalfi White.
We’ve been meaning to contact James to say thank you so much for the amazing performance he did at our wedding. There were so many compliments about the music throughout the day. He is in a league of his own and we can’t recommend him enough! We hope to see him at another event very soon!

Thank you for all your extremely hard work, organising the truly amazing music you provided on our special day! We can’t even comprehend how many hours it took to organise. Your hard work truly made our day even more magical and the guests were well and truly entertained and we have had lots of extremely positive comments about you!

Charlotte and Lewis at Barnsdale Hall Hotel.
He was absolutely amazing, learned and played songs we requested and our guests thoroughly loved him. Cannot wait to find an excuse to have him play for us again.

Jess and Joe on the wedding day with their dog Mia.
My wife and I were fortunate to have James play at our wedding reception. He did play all of the wedding standards, while also having some personalised songs that meant so much to us. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Thanks so much for being a huge part of our day – loved your performance, James! Walking in Memphis was special.

Joe Durow
He was absolutely brilliant! We threw a slight curveball with the era and James got on board with our theme, happily learning some new music to complement the evening, all delivered with perfection. Couldn’t recommend highly enough.

Jenny and Jeremy in Willoughby-on-the-Wolds
It was such a highlight, creating a fabulous atmosphere and playing all the songs we had said we loved from 70s and 80s. The white grand piano looked a real show piece too, made for a really impressive entrance for our guests as they arrived. Can highly recommend.
