booked J M Guitar for their event in Merseyside March 2023

“The idea was to have a soft mix of classical music along with well known covers in a classical way. This was during an annual Reunion Dinner so the intention was to have quality "background" music. Which is exactly what is was.”

Excellent, professional service!
