"Wow! Steve was absolutely brilliant from start to finish. He did our first dance which made it extra special and even performed a song requested at short notice. All of our guests could not believe how good Steve was and we have had so many good comments. He is the first thing the guests mention when we talk to them! Steve was very professional from start to finish and had the dance floor full the whole time he was on. His song choices were excellent and just what we wanted. Me and my wife called it the perfect end to a perfect day!! If you have a wedding coming up get Steve booked now and I guarantee you will not be disappointed!! Thank you Steve for a perfect performance!"

"Steve was fantastic throughout the evening, he arrived promptly and managed to get the crowd dancing all night, he performed some fantastic sing-a-long anthems all night. Steve learnt our obscure first dance song 'McLean' and was able to sing this acoustic - It was absolutely outstanding and we couldn't have asked for more. Not only that he was tremendous value for money, I couldn't ask for more!"
