5 stars - Phil South are Highly Recommended
booked Phil South for their event

“I recently celebrated my 50th birthday weekend with a group of family and friends and I wanted live music for the first night, as a way of gathering everyone together. I had heard good reviews of Phillip, and through personal recommendation from a trusted friend, so I went ahead and booked him. I absolutely could not have made a better choice! Phil was more than accommodating with the song choices I had, and had some fantastic suggestions of his own. He was so friendly and professional throughout my booking. On the evening of the event he had set everything up for the performance without any intrusion on either myself or guests. His performance was amazing! He played a fantastic selection, with some brilliant surprises, and encouraged people to sing along and even took requests. He absolutely brought everyone together and started the weekend celebrations on a fantastic high. I cannot recommend Phil highly enough – book him, you will not be disappointed!”
