I'm more than happy to provide some feedback....The guitarist was fantastic, he was very well presented, punctual and the music went down brilliantly. Prior to the big day, he and I emailed a few times and he was easily contactable and very friendly. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him to friends and family. Please apologise on my behalf that I didn't get chance to introduce myself on the day, the day passed by so quickly!! Thanks again for a great service.
