"Our booking with James Peters and Alive was the first time we'd booked live entertainment and it was a bit of a worry as the first time we'd booked entertainment was for our Wedding - the most important event for us. We need not have been concerned.
James was very warm and approachable but very talented too. I was blown away by our first song he'd rehearsed at our request (The Seahorses) and throughout the night guests asked me who were the band as they thought they were amazing.
James did requests for guests at the wedding and got everyone onto the dancefloor dancing and pleased all us scousers with a prolonged rendition of 'Hey Jude' at the end of the night.
A wonderful day / night was had by all and I'm very appreciative for the part James and his band played in making that happen.

"James is a true professional. Our guests loved him and we could have listened to him all night long!
Punctual, friendly, he knows how to engage with an audience (and ours was a diffficult one with so many children) - none of it phased him. We were very impressed and our guests were too.
Alive Network have a user-friendly website with many artists of different genres to suit all tastes and pockets. The co-ordinator we had was very polite and professional and we would happily recommend both Alive Network and especially James Peters.

"We could not be happier with James. He is very friendly, professional and easy to approach. We had a good chat with James prior to the wedding reception where we discussed what songs from his huge repertoire we would like to be played. James was more than happy to play the songs we wanted and he also helped us, using his own experiences, with what order the songs should be played.
The actual performance itself was fantastic, all the guests told us how great they thought James was. We definitely recommend James Peters and if we ever have a need for live music again we will definitely be booking James.

"James arrived promptly, was professional and very well presented. We and our guests enjoyed his performance very much and would use him again and recommend him to friends.
We choose James from your list of entertainers because he fitted our requirements exactly, in that we did not have much space for a large band but we wanted a musician as well as a singer/performer.
We have used Alive Network before and found them to be professional and extremely helpful and so did not look elsewhere for entertainers.
Thank you once again for helping to make our party go with a swing!

I can tell you that James arrived early which was great, because after introductions, we left him to set up while we had our dinner. He was polite, professional and well turned out and we almost forgot he was there until it was time for him to start.
I can honestly say that his voice sounded even better in real life than the demo! Everyone enjoyed his singing, including the group of sons/daughters/neices/nephews whose ages ranged between 16 and 25 years. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
I heard about your agency through the internet. To be quite honest, I left the booking of the entertainement quite late because we were not sure whether to have any. I was concerned that having listened to the demo, the actual performance wasn't going to be as good. How wrong I was!
Anyway, many thanks again to James and yourselves."

"Everything went very smoothly from booking James to him turning up and putting on a fantastic show. Everyone who attended said how much they had enjoyed the party and how good James was.
I think James enjoyed himself also as he stayed over with us till next morning. I will certainly use Alive Network again. A big thankyou to everyone at Alive Network and to James for making our party one of the best or even the best we have put on!!!!!

"We booked James Peters through Alive Network for a 40th birthday party. Alive Network were really easy to deal with and responded to our booking request really quickly.
James was great and all of our guests loved his performance. We even had neighbours down the street stopping to tell us they thought it was a great show.
I wouldnt hesitate to use both Alive Network and James again."

"We hired James Peters for our wedding party last Saturday 29th May and wanted to take this opportunity to thank him again for a great evening.
He was on time, friendly, the music was perfect, he got our guests involved and everyone was rocking by the end of the night.
We would gladly recommend him to anyone thinking of hiring a solo rock star!
