5 stars - Blake Taylor are Highly Recommended
booked Blake Taylor for their Wedding in Lancashire

“He was absolutely amazing. We couldn’t have asked for anything better. He played and sang fantastically and was the perfect accompaniment to create atmosphere during our meal. Due to COVID-related changes, we booked him last minute and everything was arranged quickly. People loved the mixture of songs he played and there was something for everyone. Also a lovely fella!”
