Recent testimonials:

“What an amazing performance and experience!  All the guests loved you and the choice of music was brilliant, you certainly got the crowds going. The couple absolutely adored the serenading, as we all did. Every thing about your performance was first class, you looked very professional on stage and we loved your outfits.  As every thing has sadly come to end, we are left with the wonderful memories of the day and we like to thank you for being memory makers at our daughter’s  wedding.”

”Thank you so much for everything – EVERYONE commented on how amazing you were, Greeks and English. I know the family especially loved the Trikala song you played. You really set the atmosphere, and for me the special touch was being serenaded as we arrived at the reception 🙂 The photographer (on my facebook friends), said the photos will be ready in a couple of weeks. We are off to Santorini tomorrow for a weeks honeymoon…”. Jemma
