Thanks so much for all the work you put into the wedding Roly, it was genuinely fantastic, loved November Rain walking up and aisle and You'll never walk alone was the highlight of the day I think... So many people commented on how much they loved the music at the church and thought the piano during the meal was lovely and not forgetting the band after the meal, our DJ commented that it was the best band he has heard at any wedding he has played at and I would have to agree.. We had an amazing day and a lot of that is down to you.
Wishing you all the very best of luck both with your wedding and work wise.. Mick see you again in Bucks some night !! Massive thanks again

Hi Ladies,Roly did the music for our wedding recently and we were delighted. All of the guests commented that he really set the tone for the day. His music is cool, jazzy and contemporary. We even asked him to continue throughout the meal! All the girls agreed he's rather easy on the eye! An absolute pleasure to deal with so don't hesitate.

Hi Roly,
We cant thank you and Lynn enough for your beautiful music on the day of our wedding, it was commented on by many of our guests. You made it extra special and i will always remember hearing 'river flows in you' as i stumbled up the aisle! For the many phone calls and emails, thank you for your patience. We didnt had to worry about the music or timing on the day, you were just there when you were needed and so professional. We cannot recommend you enough or sing your praises!
Hopefully we will get to work with you again some day soon!

Hi Roly and Laura
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for your marvelous performances during both our wedding ceremony and the drinks reception that followed. From the outset, you were both a pleasure to deal with and were instrumental in helping me choose the perfect music for the day.
Everyone has been raving about the amazing sound you produced on the day. You are both truly talented. Your rendition of Etta James? ?At Last? was my personal favourite. I know I wasn?t the only one in the hall who had goosebumps when you performed? you could have heard a pin drop the atmosphere was so charged.
I would recommend you without hesitation. Best of luck in the future. I have no doubt that you will be kept very busy.
Kind Regards

Roly was great. he had no problem with the wide range and style of songs we wanted to hear at our wedding. in fact he even sent us a demo of one we hadn't heard him play before but had practiced especially for our event. He was fully contactable in advance of the big day and arrived, set up and got on with things without any fuss. between the ceremony and reception he kept the guests entertained with a repetoire partly based on our play list and partly based on his excellent judgement of the mood of the crowd. whether it's piano or guitar, past or present, upbeat or laid back Roly won't disappoint.

We wanted live music during dinner as we felt that piped music wouldn't have the WOW factor that we wanted. We are totally delighted with our choice in Roly, he definately has the WOW factor - now a month after the wedding everyone is still asking about him!
He started with a nice relaxing set working up to the party atmosphere that we wanted as dessert was being enjoyed by our guests.
He took requests much to our guests delight and learned a speacial song that delighted 5 country girls.
Not alone is he an accompilished piano player he is also a fantastic guitarist and singer and a really friendly person -definately someone you would want around you on your special day.
I would recommend him 100% ten times over!

We got married on 2nd Sept 2010 and we wanted something a little different as the stereotypical band has been done so many times - Roly was our choice of entertainment and the best choice ever!!! He was a pleasure to deal with in the run up to the day and is both highly reliable and punctual. On the night he played a fab mix of music and blew everyone away, all our guests were up dancing and he created such a cool atmosphere. He brought a guitar for our first dance which added another unique element. I highly recommend Roly for all types of events and in particular weddings as he made our night exceptional!! Thanks a mil Roly :0)

It was an absolute pleasure booking Roly to perform at our humanist wedding ceremony and drinks reception. We wanted music that reflected our more Indie taste and he was so thoughtful in helping us make our selection and happily accommodated adding new songs to his repertoire. We were delighted to have music we liked played and sung so beautifully and we received many compliments from our guests. I would not hesitate to recommend Roly.
