Kind regards Nick and all my family

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.

William May has an amazing singing voice and in our intimate dinner setting he made our 80 year old grandmother feel like the most special person ever, changing the lyrics to the songs so he was singing just to her! It made her so happy, and her face shone, we will remember it forever. His relaxed laid back style and fantastic rapport made for a great evening...so much so we were up dancing from the table and we even had other hotel guests coming to the door to listen and then dance in the corridor! A really special evening made truly memorable by William! Please pass on our sincere gratitude, we can not recommend him enough!!

We were so pleased with Williams performance, he really surpassed our expectations. He sounded amazing for the core performance (Frank Sinatra tracks) but we were equally impressed with the other artists he covers. When he's not singing he has an impressive library of music and is more than happy to a accommodate specific tracks we wanted to be played. All our guests were impressed with his performance, especially as we kept his performance a surprise. Great singer, sharp dresser and very professional. Kindest regards Mr & Mrs Gould Xx

William and Mark were truly excellent. They played everything that we asked and did so brilliantly. Several people both during the evening of our wedding and in the days afterwards commented that they couldn't believe it wasn't a really high-quality recording of the original playing when in fact William was singing. If you are worried that two people won't be able to give a big band feeling, don't be. They were also seamless in the way that they set up and were very accommodating in providing the PA system for the speeches. All in all, we couldn't have asked for more. It might seem like a lot of money to have someone play at your wedding, but for us it was definitely worth it.

William May entertained us at a charity Ladies night. He has a great voice and personality, was professional and well presented. The live music mix was excellent and the disco sections certainly hit the spot, as ladies were up dancing and had a fantastic evening. Would certainly recommend William as an entertainer!

William, thank you so much for making our Wedding day so special. Not only are you a great entertainer and singer but your service and organisation are first class making sure that the day went exactly to our specifications and delivered an all round great experience for us and our guests. Everyone commented on how good you were and would recommend you without hesitation. For Elaine and I, arranging Mark to play the piano requests during the wedding breakfast made it very personal and singing Ordinary People as my dedication to Elaine could not have gone down any better. There were not many dry eyes in the room after that! Our only reservation in recommending you to others without question is our selfish desire to keep you free for when we are able to book you again....as we will! Until then we look forward to seeing you at the Frank Sinatra tribute in Leamington in December.
