Understood from the start what I was looking for... excellent

5 stars - Debra Jay are Highly Recommended
booked Debra Jay for their event in Wiltshire

“Debra Jay was booked to provide a background singer for a Regimental Leaving Function, she has had a few military bookings before so understood from the start what I was looking for. She filled the 2 hours with Easy listening music which was excellent. Her attendance at this event enhanced the evening, everyone commented on how good she was and her contribution gave a good send off to the leaving individual’s and their families, she was flexible with the times, and due to the leaving speeches going on worked slightly longer than planned with a smile on her face, nothing was a problem. I would recommend her to others that require a very professional singer.”

We loved Debra Jay. We would certainly recommend her and book her again.
