We booked Glen for our wedding and we certainly were not disappointed. So enjoyable to listen to and our guests seemed to really enjoy it. Thank you, highly recommended.

Glenn was great. So helpful on the lead up to the wedding and then played so beautiful at the wedding - even filling in when I had a bit of a dizzy spell in the church!!! He played an amazing set at the reception - I just wish I'd been able to sit down an listen to more. So very, very happy and would recommend Glenn to anyone. Warble were also great to deal with.

The event was a great success and Glenn was excellent. I will certainly bear you in mind again should we hold another similar event.
