Customer reviews

William May and his 5-piece band performed at our wedding on 2 July and we loved every minute of it! He was very charming and has an incredible voice - my husband and I stayed on the dance floor for the entire two sets dancing the night away! Thank you for making this day so unforgettable
- Chris Thompson 

The booking was made with ease and professionalism with William who kindly helped guide discussions with our high profile venue. The performance was a delight and enjoyed by all of our guests - we wish we had been able to give more of the evening to William May. Fabulous all round! Thank you.
- Sam Hyde - Charity event at The Savoy London

Wonderful entertainment William, great choice of songs and great voice. You had the whole room stunned by your performance. You will most certainly be at our next event.
- Frank Corrigan

Just to say that Carolyn and I were delighted with your performance at our wedding. Your presence lifted the entertainment away from the bog standard disco, which everyone else has, and introduced a touch of class to the proceedings, along with some real music. It made our day. Your willingness to sing the music we chose and to dedicate it to us made it very personal, which we loved. You also volunteered to sing the song for our first dance instead of our using a recorded version, which scared us to death as we’d practiced with the original Buble version but it turned out to be an inspired suggestion and could not have worked out better. Bless you for that! We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone planning a wedding or any other event requiring entertainment. In fact, I would go as far as to say that anyone planning a wedding/event without your services, is seriously missing out!
- Stuart & Carolyn Gulleford

This lad really can sing Sinatra!
- Chris Smith (String of Pearls Band) - Toured with Frank Sinatra playing trombone.
