booked Sonny Ray for their Wedding in Kent March 2024

“Sonny Ray (Joe) performed at our wedding, he was lovely on texts and calls in the lead up to the wedding and learnt a song specifically for the ceremony. He was amazing when he played through the ceremony and the reception, I'd highly recommend him!”

Unreal performance!

booked Sonny Ray for their event in Kent December 2023

Absolutely amazing!!!

booked Sonny Ray for their Wedding in Oxfordshire November 2023

“Sonny Ray was just amazing, a beautiful addition to the wedding of my son and now daughter in law. I booked Sonny as a gift for the newlyweds and he was indeed a gift, a silky smooth soulful voice with incredible tone that just blended seamlessly with the rhythm of the day. We had a few timing changes as is often the case with wedding ceremonies, not a problem for this young man who just read the situation and performed accordingly. What followed were several wonderful acoustic sets that can only be described as magical. Sonny was professional, polite, punctual, just perfect, an absolute joy to listen to. I am genuinely chuffed with the great choice I made and the sheer amount of feedback from other guests suggests the same. A couple of days before the event I asked Sonny if he knew a particular song that wasn’t on his playlist ( a favourite song of the Groom which is a big song from a big hitter ) it was a lovely surprise when he weaved it into the playlist as if it was his ow...”

He was polite, punctual and has an absolutely stunning voice!!

booked Sonny Ray for their event September 2023

“Sonny Ray was kind enough to perform for our garden party, even with last minute notice. He was polite, punctual and has an absolutely stunning voice!! He really was the highlight of our party and many of the guests were mesmerised by his voice and singing style. He was so friendly with everyone and even took the time out to entertain a few of the young children at our party with nursery rhymes. I really cannot recommend him enough, and look forward to hiring him for our next event. Thank you so much”

Absolutely Amazing!

booked Sonny Ray for their Wedding in Essex September 2023

“Joe played at our wedding last week during cocktail hour and was absolutely incredible - I couldn't fault him! It was the perfect addition to our day having him sing outside in the sunshine whilst our guests enjoyed their cocktails and canapes (and our guests agreed!). Thanks so much Joe - you were a star!! :)”
