Oliver's ability to work an audience is magical. His colossal musical gift and friendly personality coupled with an uncanny knack of knowing instinctivly what people want to hear (even before they do sometimes!) ensures that wherever he plays the party always goes with a swing. His voice (with it's three octave range) has been likened to Chet Baker and Billy Joel but with a style that is uniquely Oliver. As one New York music fan put it "He out-Manilows Manilow!"
Oliver creates all his own arrangements that are instantly recognisable for their pianistic dexterity as well as their vocal individualism.

24/08/2010 Oliver S
"My Wife and I booked Oliver S through Alive Network and couldn't have been happier with the results. Alive Network communicated clearly with us and kept us updated when they were checking the availability of the artist, once the availability was confirmed, everything was presented to us in a straightforward manner.
Oliver contacted us a little while before the wedding and was very helpful and accomodating in any special requests we had. On the night he was on time and performed just as we wanted, there were plenty of comments from guests and staff alike about the quality of the pianist. He was very polite and we were very pleased with the service that we received.

23/09/2008 Oliver S
A big thank you to Oliver for the fantastic musical entertainment at our wedding! He was very patient in setting up (we had unwisely ended up having lots of photos taken at the end of the Barn where he was going to be playing!) and provided a brilliant selection of music which was exactly what we wanted. He certainly got people up and dancing, including me! I am certainly very glad we booked through you - hassle free and the perfect result.
Customer review by Caroline
13/08/2008 Oliver S
Oliver was such a hit with everyone! We had booked Oliver to play/sing toward the end of the Wedding Breakfast and to take us into the early evening. Oliver surpassed our expectations but his comment, "I welcome requests and can usually get a feel for the type of music people want..." was spot on! Whilst we had emailed a play list to Oliver, he had a rough idea of our requirements and I can remember talking to so many guests during this time and hearing Oliver sing/play every song that was so special to our family and friends.
Truly a professional with such a wonderful voice that can adapt to any song.
Guests in the day commented on how refreshing and relaxing Oliver's performance made them feel, as opposed to "the usual string quartet/cello/harp in the background" - this was just the sort of atmosphere Katie and David wanted to create.
The evening guests were also blown away by Oliver's performance as, usually, they arrive at an evening reception and there is that awkward lull before the entertainment begins. On this occasion they were met with the melodious tones of Oliver ("surely he is related to Nat King Cole" was the comment of one guest).
Brilliant day, brilliant weather and brilliant artist!

Oliver S was great and his songs just right for the mood of the evening.
He was indeed very accommodating and helpful and we were very pleased with his performance. He even went without his breaks so that we had an uninterrupted performance.
Thanks so much for your help

"Oliver was fantastic - we had so many great comments about the music. Everyone was really impressed - especially since he managed to play for about 4 hours with only minimal breaks and no repeats. This is one talented musician!! I am definitely happy to recommend him to anyone else who is interested in booking a musician for any event.

"Oliver was great, perfect for the intimate audience, and very flexible during the evening, a number of my guests particularly said that he was the highlight of the evening. I would happily act as a reference for anyone considering him at a future event."

"Hi Martyn, sorry for the delay in responding. The wedding was great and Oliver was fantastic - everyone loved him, he was really friendly and got people up and dancing, which is exactly what we wanted. I would certainly recommend him to anyone. He really was very impressive and managed to do exactly what we wanted him to. Please could you pass our thanks onto him, as I dont have any contact information for him. Thanks also for all your help with the arrangements.

"I was planning to send you an email to forward to Oliver. We were very pleased with the service he provided, he was friendly and accomodating and did not mind having to set up in one room for a couple of hours and then dismantle and reassemble in the second room where the food was being served. The music he provided was great and I left him to judge the sort of songs which would work - which he did wonderfully. Oliver has a lovely voice and I would recommend him to anyone - be it for a private or corporate event. I have already been congatulated on the success of the evening - and of course Oliver played his part in contributing to that. Thanks also to Alive Network for a very comprehensive website from which to choose from and a hassle free booking process.
