Event: Wedding
Location: Hampshire

It was a lovely sunny day in beautiful gardens and Dave provided the perfect soundtrack to the drinks reception of our wedding. All our guests commented on how cheerful, beautiful and non-intrusive his music was. Dave himself was friendly, courteous and professional. We thought his rates were very reasonable for the quality of his musicianship and wouldn't hesitate to book him again.
