Reviews for Jon

"Jon was AMAZING! He made our wedding perfect and everyone commented on how amazing he was. We asked Jon to sing before the ceremony, during the drinks reception and during the wedding breakfast and we cannot fault him. He had people singing along and dancing in their chairs. At one point he had all the guests singing along to 'Hey Jude'!! We're not sure that was what he was expecting but he loved it all the same! Everyone had such an amazing time and enjoyed Jon so much that there was outrage when he finished and after a few pleas from many a guest, we were fortunate enough to have him continue his set a little longer. One family friend loved him so much that he wants to know if he would just come and sing for him in his garden!! We suggested that he buy Jon's CD instead! We cannot thank Jon enough for his performance at our wedding. It truly was fantastic. He is extremely talented, has a beautiful voice and had the crowed eating out of his hand! We would also like to say a special thank you for learning a song that is not usually on his set list but is one of our favourites. Thank you Jon for making our day unforgettable and perfect."

Aimee and Lee - Horsley Park

"Jon you were incredible! Both my husband and I would like to thank you for putting on such a brilliant show during our ceremony but also making the reception come alive with the sound of your stunning voice and excellent guitar. Our guests all commented on how talented you were which sent a buzz around the reception hall with whispers about the music. You came and left so swiftly we didn't really get to thank you for truly making our day so special. Thanks a million!"

Mr and Mrs Roberts - Bury Court Barn

"Hi Jon...we cannot thank you enough for making our wedding day so unbelievably special. The music both before, during and after the ceremony was so important to us and you blew us away, it was more than we had ever hoped for and you will be pleased to know it made both the guests and myself cry (in a good way!). Honestly your talent is amazing and it set the tone for the rest of the day and the guests are still talking about you as are we! Thank-you once again it really did make our wedding day even more special and perfect and we will certainly be recommending you to all our friends!"

Amy and Matt - Broyle Place

A Musician of a Bespoke Quality and a Fine Purveyor of the Eclectic Seaside Vibe We'll always remember Our Seaside Wedding Day on the 3rd October, 2012 at The Beacon House in Whitstable, Kent. Amongst the many other splendid things that happened that fine day, you entertained us (and the cool, calm sea) with you perfectly fitting soundtrack. It was an idyllic venue right on Tankerton Beach ~ definitely not your everyday location ~ where you delivered the songs to match. You'd probably guessed that music is a big part of our lives and therefore standards were high and, even though ours was an intimate wedding, you didn’t fail in getting our small gathering onto the floor and asking for encores. What is more, you did our choice of songs ~ Noel Gallagher's If I Had a Gun and A Man Called Adam's Barefoot in the Head the utmost justice We purposely left this feedback for a few weeks to let the emotion of the day temper down a bit, but
What can we say?....... Stuck in our memories and meant to be All the best Jon and Thanks for being a part of Our Big Day"

Steve, Joanna & Freya

"Jon played two sets at our wedding, one outside in the grounds whilst people were having welcome drinks and one in the dining room whist we were having the wedding breakfast. Both sets were absolutely brilliant and he put together a great variation of songs appropriate for both settings. We had a number of people come up to us during the wedding and say how much they enjoyed Jon's playing, and we were extremely pleased that we asked him to play at the wedding. I would definitely recommend Jon for a wedding or any occasion."

Mr & Mrs Forde

"We had the pleasure to have Jon play at our wedding at La Veranda Restaurant in Carshalton, He has a great voice and amazing guitar skills, All of our guests were impressed with him and his professionalism. It's really difficult to find anywhere in the world such a good artist...I would definitely recommend him to anyone.Thanks a lot Jon!"

Fabrizio & Valentina

"Absolutely amazing, blessed to have had him play at our wedding, so much joy. So many of our guests were complimenting on how great he was. He helped make our day extra special"
