Yes, all was good. Annemarie was great, our guests thoroughly enjoyed her!
We will definitely have her back again.
We had a lovely evening on Saturday night. Annemarie certainly contributed to the success of the occasion. She was very professional and provided a fantastic selection of background songs which contributed to the ambience without dominating it.
Annemarie was amazing. I couldn't believe how good she actually was! Her selection and style fitted our location and us perfectly.
Thank you - happy to give a reference if ever needed.

It was a wonderful night, Annemarie was brilliant
Annemarie’s performance was excellent and we had lots of very positive feedback on her singing and the impact it had on building the great atmosphere on Friday night.
Sorry I haven’t been in touch since getting back from Christchurch, but things have been flat out here. I just wanted to say that Anne-Marie was absolutely wonderful and everyone really enjoyed her music and I would recommend her to others. She’s such a lovely lady and very obliging and please pass on my big thanks to her to help make our launch a very successful event.
