booked James Avery for their event in Staffordshire December 2022

“James saved the day for our cycling club Xmas bash after our original booking was cancelled . And although it clashed with England’s match with France , James was willing to start the set a little later . The songs were spot on , and after a few songs in , it wasn’t long before we had a few up on the dance floor for a good old singalong . ”
