Lee Turnbull - Wedding Guitarist Feedback

"He was great, unfortunately with the day being manic I didn’t get to introduce myself properly.  However he was punctual and smart, the song choice’s were perfect and we were really really pleased with the service.  There was a song request at dinner and he was more than happy to oblige which was great! The booking process was fine, all straight forward he was happy to speak directly on song choice etc when that came up so that was all very easy too.  I would highly recommend him to any future brides who were after an acoustic guitarist. Thank you" Hannah Giffin, August 2014

"Just a quick email to say that Lee was absolutely brilliant yesterday. He made the party. He was so accommodating and the music was spot on - what a wonderful guitarist. I would recommend him without hesitation. I would also like to thank you for your services which were both very professional and extremely helpful. Thank you to both of you and I will definitely be using your services again" Best wishes, Carol Marlow November 2013

"Just wanted to say many, many thanks for your playing on Saturday. My Mum really loved it and lots of people said to me how nice it sounded. I will certainly recommend you in the future! Best wishes and hope you have a lovely Christmas!" Alice December 2012

"We were extremely pleased with the guitarist. He was very professional throughout and both flexible (due to the weather) and approachable (to conversation with guests). He even learnt a specially requested song for the day. I would recommend both him and your agency again. P.S. the free CD was a big help in deciding."
Ben August 2012

"It is a great CD with all the varying moods created. It was lucky that I found notification of your appearance on the net and was able to combine your show with a bit of retail therapy!!! What a treat!! I thoroughly enjoyed seeing you at the Art Gallery."
