A very talented guitarist. Music is incredibly important to us as a couple so this was the thing we spent the most time deliberating over. Jon was perfect for what we wanted; just wish we'd got to hear more (we were off wandering in sheep poo while he played for guests at our Reception!). Thank you - highly recommended.

It was a pleasure to have Jon Alexander play at our wedding, I could not recommend him highly enough. We have had lots of glowing comments from guests who all enjoyed his music on the day, just as much as we did when we first heard him at our Tasting Event! Such a great range of modern and older songs, he really does have something for everyone. The tone was perfect for during our reception, he really added to the mood and helped us to create the laid back, summer-wedding atmosphere we were looking for - thank you Jon, you are brilliant :) Both Jon and Warble Entertainment were very flexible to work with, happy to make last minute changes to our booking with no fuss at all. The communication process was a breeze as well, very quick, detailed and efficient! Very happy customers, big thanks all round :) Mr & Mrs Sims.

Jon Alexander was a fantastic addition to our day. Not only did he play two lovely sets - both a mixture of Spanish/Latin music and contemporary pop - but he also took the time to rehearse beforehand with two members of my family who sang in the ceremony and reception. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone getting married in the area as he provided the perfect background ambience to our special day. Thank you very much!

Jon provided an excellent background for our guests while the photographs were being taken during our wedding.

Our experience with Warble and Jon Alexander was fantastic - from the booking process to dialogue with Jon about songs and timings ahead of the event to his great performance on the day. It was lovely walking down the aisle to classical music on the guitar and having Jon playing the music to our songs in the ceremony really encouraged everyone to sing along. I'd wholly recommend for an event.

    FAQs

    At what stages of the wedding can a guitarist perform?
    The guitar is a versatile instrument, therefore providing the perfect backdrop to any stage of the wedding; from the ceremony stage with classical pieces such as the wedding marches or modern popular tunes, to the reception and wedding breakfast stages for perhaps a livelier, more informal set list of Latin jazz and popular classics. All music choices are entirely the choice of the client and Jon welcomes any requests not on his set lists.

    How large a room can be accommodated?
    Jon Alexander performs with a top of the range acoustic amplifier to cater for any size of room or outdoor setting, without being too loud and instrusive.
