Bruce was absolutely amazing and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him for performances. Our guests were seriously impressed. He really captured the mood and atmosphere for our wedding perfectly. Please pass on my thanks.
Yes Bruce did a fantastic job! Thank you for the great entertainment. Bruce was so friendly, flexible and a hit with the rest of the wedding guests. He read the audience well and even backed up a family performance by one of the uncles. I'll definitely be recommending him to anyone who is looking for some background wedding music.
Yes all good
All went well thanks!
