We just wanted to reiterate our massive thanks for your outstanding guitar playing throughout the day of our wedding. We knew from the start that we wanted  the feel of a classical guitar, something a bit different from the normal harp or string quartet; being a musician myself I know how important choosing the right instrument for the occasion is, and you certainly exceeded expectations, giving the day a relaxing yet intimate feel. I admit that I seemed to change my mind somewhat about the song choices, but we got there in the end! - your playing was truly fantastic, and I'm just waiting to get hold of a copy of the wedding video to re-live the memories! We would certainly recommend you to others for any suitable occasions, and thank you once again for making our special day even more memorable

Hi Brian On behalf of Michael & Mandy and all the guests at the Cedar Court Hotel A big thank you for your marvellous guitar playing while we were enjoying our celebration lunch last Saturday. I thought the music sounded really well, the disco at night wasn’t nearly as good but then I love and play live music and I realise what goes into making it sound good, so well done Brian.
