Thank you, Russell & your team for the week spent up-skilling our students to better harness their instrumental skills to put on another great show. Your support is continually helping our students develop what we hope is a lifelong love of playing music.

Russell did an AMAZING job at our wedding reception! He made the whole process really easy. I didn’t really specify exactly what music we wanted playing throughout the night, but instinctively he picked up on the sort of atmosphere we wanted, and his song choices were perfect. We had trouble deciding between a DJ or live entertainment during the planning process. We are so glad we chose Russell, as I don’t think our wedding would have been the same without him. For anyone looking for amazing entertainment at their wedding, I would highly recommend Russell.

Once again, a great evening! Russell, thank you very much for making the planning process and the evening so easy. As always, your punctuality, flexibility when it comes to setting up, your performance skills and talent shined yet again. I would definitely recommend Russell as a soloist or with his band to everyone! Russell is a great entertainer and I have no doubt you will be happy with your choice!

My new husband is a musician and absolutely loves music, so I knew he’d have pretty high expectations for the live music for our wedding reception. Russell exceeded our expectations. We wanted an acoustic guitarist to provide good music that all our guests would be able to dance to. Russell provided exactly that! He sang, played guitar and trumpet, as well as providing DJ sets. He read the room perfectly and chose just the right music to keep everyone on the dance floor. He was lovely to work with and required minimal direction in the lead-up to our wedding; he knows what he is doing! All of our guests were very impressed. Thank you, Russell, so much for making our wedding reception so memorable.

Amazing job last night. Everyone loved it and couldn’t stop raving about it. Made it very special for Jamie and I and playing a few John Farnham songs was awesome. Thanks again.

I’ve engaged Russell to perform at a welcome dinner for one of our International clients last month, and I can tell you how much I enjoyed working with him and of course how well received he was by every guest. Russell is a friendly, funny guy, punctual, professional and flexible. I am looking forward to working with Russell again in the future and I would highly recommend him for any future events.

The party would not have been complete with you, Russell. Thank you for the wonderful entertainment.

My now husband and I are massive jazz fans (swing, big band etc.) and we wanted a 4 piece ensemble to put the cherry on top of our special day. The communication and organisation of the band and Russell was impeccable. It was the perfect evening with everything we wanted. Talented musicians, jazz improvs, an amazing atmosphere. We could not be happier with the level of musical talent on offer. We honestly had nothing bad to say about anything. The band were discreet when packing down and very professional. Thank you for the perfect entertainment for a perfect night!

Russell and his band were exactly what we wanted for our special day. They knew exactly what to play for each set so not only was everyone able to enjoy the evening, but kept the dance floor filled all night! Russell was fantastic to communicate with and was able to be flexible with all of our requests. 100% recommend!

The perfect acoustic soundtrack to the wedding celebrations. A consummate professional, Russell created an amazing vibe from beginning to end – setting the tone for arrival drinks, through to the reception, to getting guests up on the dance floor for an unforgettable night. Stars: 5/5
