Effortless voice, and fit our event perfectly as we wanted a more relaxed vibe.

A wonderful musician and singer

A welcome addition with a varied repertoire

5 stars - Nathan James are Highly Recommended
booked Nathan James for their event February 2023

“Nathan had been appearing here for some time and is a welcome addition to our regular musicians. His varied repertoire is always popular with our customers. He has a good knowledge of the kind of music which appeals to all ages and differing tastes. I look forward to his shows and so do our customers I strongly recommend him to all venues and occasions.”

My guests were full of praise for his ability and showmanship

5 stars - Nathan James are Highly Recommended
booked Nathan James for their Wedding September 2022

“It was my pleasure to have Nathan entertain at me and my wife's wedding reception. He was helpful in deciding how the afternoon and evening should proceed and was understanding of our needs, but it was he who managed to play just the right mixture of music to suit three generations. He was at the venue in ample time and was set up long before anybody arrived. He was unobtrusive but introduced himself to all those that mattered so that he got a feel for his audience. We had a few special requests, and it was a surprise to find that he had paid so much attention to what we would like that everything happened as if by magic. I have very little musicality, but my guests were quite discerning and full of praise for his ability and showmanship. I was left in no doubt that he is a wonderful musician and that he would be an asset to any function or occasion.”
