"Thank you for being a total professional from start to finish. The communication was responsive and clear, and the selection of available music wide ranging. It was really special that you were able to learn a piece of music that we requested, which added a fantastic touch to the day and you were so good about doing that for us. The standard of performance was extremely high, and the technical ability on show was truly excellent. A 5 star professional and performer, and superb value for money."

"We hired Alan to play at our wedding reception. Throughout the whole process leading up to the wedding, he was extremely responsive and engaging, as well as accommodating, as he even moved things around to be able to perform on our day. He provided us with a long list of songs in different genres that he could play to help us choose the songs we wanted. On the day, we had a lot of positive feedback from our guests regarding how well he performed. His performance went a long way to help create an amazing atmosphere during the reception as well as the wedding breakfast. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Alan to anyone that wishes to engage in his services. Thank you Alan for performing on our special day!"

"I found his videos on FixTheMusic and decided to message him to book and I’m extremely glad I did. Within a week of booking Alan had learnt the song we had requested and sent us the audio file. We had to postpone original date due to covid but that was no issue and Alan extremely accommodating. We even extended hours we wanted him for within 2 weeks notice of the big day and he was fine with that too On the day Alan entertained our guests on arrival and during the breakfast with a vast array of songs that were known to everyone My guests were really impressed and made multiple comments how good he was. He’s extremely skilled at what he does and we are grateful that he could make our day even more special."

"Alan is an outstanding guitarist, so much so that we have now booked him twice. Each time he has surprised and delighted our guests and is certainly the ‘talk of the town’ each time. His playing is professional, familiar and we loved being able to choose our favourite songs from his extensive repertoire. Everyone couldn’t help but dance or sing along to his playing and quite honestly he is the perfect wedding entertainment. We are already thinking of what we can book him for next! Thank you again Alan for bringing the fun is such a classy way!"

"Hi Alan, We just wanted to say a huge thank you again for playing at our wedding on Saturday! You were honestly incredible. Every single guest and supplier we hired came up to us at some point in the day to tell us how amazing you were playing. You are incredibly talented and made the atmosphere so romantic. Our first dance song that you played for us will stick with us forever and we are so grateful that you were able to pull another lovely song out for us on the spot so we could do a dance with our mothers. You were better than any DJ we could have hired and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you. Thanks again, Becky & Charlie Mayne."

We had many guests complimenting the tunes he played, there was such a great selection and variety that were all perfect for our big day.

"Alan was an amazing addition to our day. He played a great range of songs incredibly well and it was the perfect backing to the reception and wedding breakfast. I loved hearing some of my favourite acoustic songs as I looked out over the room filled with my nearest and dearest. Alan was amazing from the start - he gave us all the information we needed, responding to queries immediately, and was even willing to play a few more of our own requests. Everyone has commented on how good he was. He was the least stressful component to planning a wedding! "
