William May sang at our wedding last night and was absolutely amazing! As well as perfect performances he announced everything for us (myself and my new husband feel uncomfortable about public speaking) which helped our special day move even more smoothly. 5 star all round. Thank you again William xx

Customer reviews
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.

Easy to book online, very professionally presented, with everyone commenting how wonderful his singing was and he made our first dance as Mr & Mrs very memorable singing 'you are so beautiful'..... Many thanks William!

We booked William for our wedding at Westonbirt School on 18th July 2015 to perform a 60 minute singing set during our drinks reception and then to DJ during our evening as well. He contacted me before the wedding and took on board all of our requests and nothing was a problem for him. On the day, he was an absolute star; arrived on time and was set up straight away. His performance was sensational - what a voice! He kept our guests thoroughly entertained in the sunshine and went over and above - performing for much longer than expected as there was a bit of a delay with photo's etc. He really enhanced the already fantastic and romantic mood of the day and we couldn't be happier! He was also fantastic entertainment for the evening reception playing all of ours and our guests requests and making sure everyone had an amazing time. Definitely will be recommending him to all of our friends and I'm trying to find another excuse for a party so I can book him again!

We would like to say a very big thank you for singing at our wedding in Watergate Bay. It was a long way for you to come but thank you, everybody really enjoyed themselves. It was so easy to book you for the event and hassle free. Your voice is amazing and a great tribute to Messrs Williams, Buble & Sinatra. We liked you that much we have booked to see you in Royal Leamington Spa in December.
