Jay was professional and very pleasant. He played beautifully and made an effort to dress the part as well. He was easy to reach leading up to the day and really accommodating of our requests. We have highly recommended him to everyone we know getting married and hope to have an excuse to rebook him in the future! Undoubtedly one of the best decisions we made for our day. Just perfect, thank you so much Jay xx

Timothy Chiu

Location: Manchester

Jay was really good in reaching out to me and making sure I was happy with the music on the day. I made a request for him to learn a song for the wedding procession and he played it perfectly. Learned it in 2-3 weeks and it was fantastic. Really good music and a nice fella. Would recommend to friends.

We booked Jay at the last minute and we couldn't be happier with the service he provided. He contacted me beforehand to discuss the music for our ceremony and wedding breakfast. He went out of his way to get the music for songs that I had requested, which made it really special for us. He is so talented and polite. Don't hesitate to book him for your event! Warble were also excellent and I would recommend booking through them to anyone.

A big thank you to Jay the Pianist who played at my son's wedding on Saturday 21st July. He was amazing and we truly believe helped set the mood for the whole reception! He was very professional and played some beautiful music, loud enough to blend in, but not be intrusive on people's conversations. Everyone thought he was great and we would have no hesitation in using him again. Well done Jay and Warble Entertainment - first class!

Jay exceeded our expectations. His choice in music for or wedding breakfast was perfect, even taking it up tempo towards the end of our meal to get the guests in the mood for a good boogie! I have never been to a wedding where guests are up dancing in between the meal! That was all down to Jay! To say he was excellent is an understatement. We would most certainly recommend!!! Thanks Jay x

Caroline Dearden

Event: Wedding
Location: Lancashire

Jay was just amazing at our wedding. He arrived in good time, set up efficiently and even relocated downstairs after the ceremony to the bar area to play during reception drinks. Nothing was too much trouble. Excellent value for money, Jay playing before, during and after our ceremony. The piano music was wonderful, adding a really classy edge to the wedding. Jay played a variety of tunes, something for everyone, and of course, the specific tunes we had chosen for our ceremony. I would not hesitate recommending Jay, he is very professional and accommodating, and even took the time to congratulate us after the ceremony, thank you Jay.
