Testimonials and reviews

"Hi Tim, thank you so much for all your help finding Claire and the band for my party on Saturday. They were perfect! I’ve had several people ask where I got the great band from and I’ve told them all about you but please let me know if there is somewhere I can write a recommendation too. It has been wonderful to deal with someone who was not pushing their agenda but instead had my best interests at heart and worked very hard to find the perfect match. All the hard work definitely paid off and I had an amazing time. Thank you again."
Sara Neary, 30th Birthday Party, Docklands, London

"Just a short note to thank you very much for your lovely singing and playing at Kirstie & Joe’s Wedding on Saturday, I was sorry not to get chance to thank you in person, I was caught up in the emotion of the day, as you would expect. It is a lovely venue and the piano playing made the ceremony extra special. I know that our wedding co-ordinator – Gaynor Pearson, was very impressed and hopefully you may be able to make further contact for future work."
Beverley Gentry (Mother of the Bride), Wedding, Essex

"One of the best jazz evenings held here, and musicianship that was second to none.
Jazz Night, The Brentwood Theatre, Essex

"Just to say thank you for a great performance on Saturday night,  you went down a storm with everyone. There were plenty of very positive comments and everyone said what a lovely voice you have. Thank you again and I will certainly recommend you to anyone who asks.
Camilla and Steve, Wedding, Essex

Thankyou so much for putting Claire my way to play at my retirement party. She and the double bass man were simply wonderful, just perfect for the occasion. So many people made compliments about the duo, so thank you so much.
Linda Porter-Cohen, Retirement Party, Cambridgeshire

"Thankyou so much for a truly wonderful wedding reception. We had such a fantastic day and having you play in the evening made the day even more memorable. So many of our guests made a point of telling us how much they enjoyed the music. Your arrangement of 'Can't Help Falling In Love' was so romantic. It was perfect."
Sarah and John Roberts, Wedding, Essex

"Many thanks for Saturday and making our lunch party go with a swing. Everyone had a great time and loved your sultry jazz - fantastic day! Can't believe how lucky we were to have you and your sax player - he was great."
