booked J M Guitar for their Wedding in Cheshire

“John is a highly talented guitarist and was happy to play whilst we had our wedding breakfast. The music was beautiful and combined a wide range of genres from Lennon & McCartney through to well known classical pieces. The music was perfect and all of our guests were highly complimentary. John is courteous, professional and very easy to deal with and we would thoroughly recommend him. Many thanks for your valuable contribution to our special day.”

booked J M Guitar for their Wedding at Civic Hall in Greater Manchester

“We would recommend John to others without any hesitation whatsoever. Although he was only contracted to play when guests arrived for the reception, he kindly continued to play for the start of the wedding breakfast as well, which involved moving to a different room. The guests were very pleased with this, and when the Toastmaster suggested we should show our appreciation - they cheered and applauded John euphorically”

John proved to be the perfect professional.

booked J M Guitar for their event in Oxfordshire

“The booking for J M Guitar was extremely easy and sensibly priced. Graham Woodcock at Alive Network promptly dealt with my booking and was very efficient in organising all date booking, payments and follow-up. J M Guitar exceeded expectations and with the great background and interesting descriptions he gave of the instruments and music, the guests at my event were very happy indeed. Many came up afterwards without prompting to say how much they had enjoyed his professional and accomplished performance. Just great stuff and will be definitely booking him again. Regards, Johnny Holland ”
