As soon as I heard the samples I just knew we had to have Evan sing and play at our Wedding. Evan was so polite from the moment we met him until we said goodbye at the end of his set. We asked Evan to perform at that time between the wedding breakfast and the evening reception and Evan created the most beautiful laid back relaxing atmosphere. I could have just listened to him all day but I had things to sort out. So much so we're having a second reception and I'm hoping that Evan will be available to play at this too! Everyone that heard him commented on the beautiful way he played the guitar and the mesmerising sound of his voice. Evan thank you so much for making our day so special!!

Mr and Mrs Munday, Wedding Event, Warwickshire
Absolutely faultless! Quality of music, presence in the room, communication you name it was perfect! Every guest commented on how beautiful the music was. In the two sets played at our drinks reception, a number of requests were included, which were outstanding. Evan's style is truly unique. A huge thank you from Mr & Mrs Munday!

Jane Mccardle, Wedding Event, Hereford and Worcester
I couldn't have been any happier with Evans performance, he played during our ceremony which added such a special touch and then afterwards during reception drinks. He was very professional throughout and even played a couple of unplanned requests from me, which made my day. My guests all commented on the wonderful quality of his singing and guitar playing so if you are looking for something unique for your special day then look no further! You will not be disappointed!
Richard Simpson, Wedding Event, Staffordshire
Evan, many thanks for the pre and ceremony sets that you provided. Extremely professional and smart. The music was pitched just right to create the perfect atmosphere for our wedding. The guests were all complimentary on the performances and commented on what an excellent musician Evan is. We would definitely recommend Evan and certainly would look to book him again on both a personal and corporate level. Thanks Evan for setting the perfect scene on our memorable day. We have some professional pictures of the day which capture Evan if you would like us to forward these to you. Best wishes Mr & Mrs R Simpson
Steve Allday, Ethel Austin Properties, Corporate Event, Cumbria
From the moment we first spoke to Evan, to the last minute of the event, Evan was polite, easy to work with and stood up to the challenges we threw at him, going above and beyond the call of duty. But more than that, there's an air about Evan Young, a presence, something in the way that he plays, the way that he sings. An effortless quality that just demands to be heard. Each song that Evan played on our evening was well chosen and beautifully portrayed, nothing as you expected, but somehow more beautiful than the original. Evan is a class act that deserves real success and we would definitely book him again for events in the future.
Sarah Middleton, Wedding, Liverpool
We were fortunate enough to have Evan play at our wedding reception at the Athenaeum Club in November. He was fantastic,so talented and all our guests were as bowled over by him as we were. Thanks, Sarah
Royah Fathi, Wedding, Cheshire
Evan is an amazing singer and guitarist. He played at our wedding ceremony and went totally above and beyond to make it extra special and bespoke to us. All our guests loved him too and we will most certainly be re-booking! Thanks Evan: ) Mr and Mrs Bell x
Faye Howard, Wedding, Liverpool
Hi Evan, Sorry we didn’t get a chance to speak with you yesterday but we wanted to send you a message as soon as possible to say how much that not only did we but 'all' of our guests commented on how great you were. The music was fab and very special. Thank you very much again and hopefully we will see you in the future at another wedding as we have highly recommended you. Thanks, Faye & Keith
Elizabeth Reeman, Wedding Reception, Essex
Thank you so much for joining our line up at Wedstock! Your music was just perfect and exactly what we envisaged. We were keen to have a relaxed festival vibe and that's exactly what we got. You are an immensely talented musician - I lost count of the amount of times my guests commented on your beautiful music. It was just perfect! I hope that our paths cross again soon.
