5 stars - James Nicholas are Highly Recommended
booked James Nicholas for their Wedding in Lancashire October 2022

“We had booked James Nicholas for the drinks reception of our wedding on 21.10.2022. James Nicholas played a full 2 hour set with no interruption and completely took on board what we had discussed in our initial meeting beforehand. He is wonderfully talented musician, with a fantastic singing voice. So many of our guests had commented to say how good he was and how much they enjoyed his performance. I only wish that myself and my now husband were able to see more of him on the actual day! Would absolutely recommend. He drove a long way for our wedding and we were incredibly grateful. Thanks again!”
