Huw was a fantastic addition to our wedding and I'm really glad that we chose him to entertain our guests during the wedding reception and breakfast. He is extremely talented, yet unassuming at the same time. We had many positive comments about Huw throughout the day and I would thoroughly recommend him to anybody who is considering an acoustic guitarist for their big day. We booked three different acts with Warble Entertainment for the day and we were highly impressed at the ease of the whole process in terms of communication, payment and the acts they recommended to us. Thank you Adam Towers and the team at Warble.

Unfortunately, I didn't get to listen to Huw's set fully on the day as the groom and I were the other side of the building taking photos for most of it but our guests said he was fantastic. He very kindly sang an additional song (Ed Sheeran 'Kiss Me' - acoustic version) whilst I walked up the aisle, which was brilliant. Thanks so much.

Reliable, professional and a joy to listen to. We can't thank Huw enough for his wonderful contribution to our special day. He worked incredibly hard, way beyond the call of duty, and even found time for some of our guests who were keen to chat to him after his performance. We recommend Huw without hesitation, and would absolutely invite him back if we can find an excuse for another party. Thank you very much Huw.

Huw was both an excellent act and a friendly, helpful person - he did not let the inclement weather stand in his way - quickly adapting to move indoors!! We would not hesitate to use Huw again when the opportunity presents itself - similarly we have used Warble before (Magical Hystory Tour) and have nothing but praise for the ease of booking and excellent communication.

    FAQs

    How long do you play for?
    As a solo act I can play one long set of up to three hours in length. Perfect for wedding receptions and chilled private parties. As a duo / trio / quartet I can play 3 x 45 minutes. I can provide background music between sets if required.

    Can you provide a PA?
    Yes, I bring a small PA with me at all times. A larger PA and lights are available on request. The music will be loud enough!

    Do you have any requirements?
    Access to a power supply and some black coffee please.

    Do you know any Kasabian / Kings of Leon / Arctic Monkeys / Katy Perry / Take That?
    My repertoire is mainly based in the classic jazz songbook, the best Motown songs and the greatest Brazilian bossas and sambas. I do play some pop songs that people will recognise, often in jazzed-up versions, but I am not your man if you are looking for a nineties / noughties singalong.
