booked James Nicholas for their Wedding in Cheshire December 2021

“AMAZING!!!! Would definitely recommend it to any of our friends/family in the future. The performance for the aisle song was exactly what we had imagined and his performance was flawless. The guests have all said how amazing he was during the wedding breakfast set. Great background music and really helped us set the mood off perfectly.”

Superstar performance from an amazing musician

5 stars - James Nicholas are Highly Recommended
booked James Nicholas for their Wedding in Cheshire October 2021

“We booked James to play at our wedding, and he was amazing. Everybody was full of praise and he was so engaging with our guests. We thought he sounded brilliant on his promo videos but to hear him live was exceptional. It was like having our own private concert with an A-list performer. We couldn’t recommend James highly enough. In the run up to the big day James’ communication and organisation was second to none. Also helped by him being a super nice guy!”

Fantastic performer - thank you James

booked James Nicholas for their Wedding in Suffolk October 2021

“James was fabulous, brilliant in run up to wedding and making contact and sorting out playlist. He entertained our guests wonderfully and his voice is something quite incredible. Would highly recommend. His rendition of Etta James - At Last was amazing for our first dance and everyone who attended our wedding was very complimentary.”

Extremely talented singer, simply AMAZING!

5 stars - James Nicholas are Highly Recommended
booked James Nicholas for their Wedding in Kent August 2021

“We booked James to sing during the day of our wedding. He is very professional and always responded to our questions quickly. We had James perform in an area without power and he did everything he could to ensure he could perform for us he also moved his equipment during the day as we requested - very grateful for James’s flexibility. We’ve received loads of raving reviews from our friends and family.”
