The Manchester Swingman - Jazz Pianist & Vocalist Feedback

This Act's Average Star Rating

Hi Geoff, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for coordinating the duo to perform at the Gallery this afternoon. They were consummate professionals and outstanding musicians. Their two performances of 1950's music complemented our Model Image exhibition perfectly. Over 300 visitors attended the performances and many gave verbal feedback about the quality of these along with how much they enjoyed themselves. Several started dancing to accompany the first performance and I saw some children clicking their fingers in time to the music which is always a good sign! I hope to have them perform at the Gallery again in future and will of course recommend Find a Performer to my colleagues across National Museums Liverpool.

Jo Keenan, Education Manager, National Museums Liverpool

He played at our wedding in March 2017 along with his drummer. He was absolutely fantastic and made our wedding extra special. Having a live singer pianist and drummer was something a little different but our guests loved the music and Jeremy chose the perfect songs throughout the 3 hours. Thank you

Michaela,

I've now booked him for 4 private events including a family wedding. He just has that knack of "hitting the right note" every time. It's great to hear a variety of styles, and he's a lovely guy to deal with. I'd recommend him to anyone. But not on the same date I need him next time.

Karen Kirkham,

He was absolutely brilliant ! I had Jeremy for my husband's birthday ! His voice was soulful and he completely enthralled my guests that evening . Jeremy had an excellent song list and he also kept some of the audience request . Jeremy was professional and I highly recommend him for any private functions or large events.

Meg, Birthday Party

We booked him for our wedding on the Isle of Skye in July 2017. He was absolutely fantastic and created the perfect atmosphere we were looking for. His chosen set was spot on and kept all of the guests entertained throughout the evening. He is extremely professional to deal with and super talented. We can't recommend him enough! We look forward to attending one of his gigs in the future.
