Customer reviews

William May and his 5-piece band performed at our wedding on 2 July and we loved every minute of it! He was very charming and has an incredible voice - my husband and I stayed on the dance floor for the entire two sets dancing the night away! Thank you for making this day so unforgettable
- Chris Thompson 

The booking was made with ease and professionalism with William who kindly helped guide discussions with our high profile venue. The performance was a delight and enjoyed by all of our guests - we wish we had been able to give more of the evening to William May. Fabulous all round! Thank you.
- Sam Hyde - Charity event at The Savoy London

Wonderful entertainment William, great choice of songs and great voice. You had the whole room stunned by your performance. You will most certainly be at our next event.
- Frank Corrigan

Just to say that Carolyn and I were delighted with your performance at our wedding. Your presence lifted the entertainment away from the bog standard disco, which everyone else has, and introduced a touch of class to the proceedings, along with some real music. It made our day. Your willingness to sing the music we chose and to dedicate it to us made it very personal, which we loved. You also volunteered to sing the song for our first dance instead of our using a recorded version, which scared us to death as we’d practiced with the original Buble version but it turned out to be an inspired suggestion and could not have worked out better. Bless you for that! We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone planning a wedding or any other event requiring entertainment. In fact, I would go as far as to say that anyone planning a wedding/event without your services, is seriously missing out!
- Stuart & Carolyn Gulleford

This lad really can sing Sinatra!
- Chris Smith (String of Pearls Band) - Toured with Frank Sinatra playing trombone.

“William May was the perfect choice for our client drinks party. A great set list and great performance he even had some of the audience up and singing! We will definitely be looking to book him again for the next event.”


“Would definitely book again, William gave an added dimension to a perfect day, very professional and great voice. Many guests didn't initially realise songs were live. If you want a rat pack style performer then William is the man. ”


“William was a pleasure to deal with, arrived well in advance, set up quickly and kick started the evening with a smooth and relaxing set to welcome guests. During dinner William then packed up and moved all his kit into another area we had themed like a Speakeasy bar where William had centre stage and he wowed our guests with a lively and classy set. Even did an Acapella version of Queens 'Don't Stop Me Now' (as the guests had been doing a choir based team build during the day to that song) he sounds terrific and the whole group joined in. A first class performance from a first class performer!”


“William May was amazing and blew all of our guests away. We would highly recommend him and the band. They were very interactive and supported all our needs. Everyone was on the dance floor having an amazing time. Well worth the money.”


“I booked William for my wife's 50th birthday party. This was in our garden with just over 50 people. Whilst William was setting up I heard music from the garden and I thought he had put on a CD on whilst he was moving his gear into place. When I came out into the garden I couldn't believe it when I realised it was William singing - the guy is absolutely superb. William interacted with our guests and actually stayed singing long after he was due to finish. So many of our guests asked where I booked him because they want to book him as well. Thanks William you really did make our night - very highly recommended”
