"My new husband is a musician and absolutely loves music, so I knew he'd have pretty high expectations for the live music for our wedding reception. Russel exceeded our expectations. We wanted an acoustic guitarist to provide good music that all our guests would be able to dance to. Russell provided exactly that! He sang, played guitar and trumpet, as well as providing DJ sets. He read the room perfectly and chose just the right music to keep everyone on the dance floor. He was lovely to work with and required minimal direction in the lead-up to our wedding; he knows what he is doing! All of our guests were very impressed. Thank you, Russell, so much for making our wedding reception so memorable." – Taylor + Matt

"Russell did an AMAZING job at our wedding reception! He made the whole process really easy. I didn't really specify exactly what music we wanted playing throughout the night, but instinctively he picked up on the sort of atmosphere we wanted, and his song choices were perfect. We had trouble deciding between a DJ or live entertainment during the planning process. We are so glad we chose Russell, as I don't think our wedding would have been the same without him. For anyone looking for amazing entertainment at their wedding, I would highly recommend Russell." – Carmel F
