Where do I begin. I am a self confessed perfectionist but when I started planning our wedding I was looking for a singer during our drinks reception and wedding breakfast. Marcus was AMAZING. If you want perfection but are unsure or in doubt, book Marcus and you will not be let down. He was truly brilliant. Set up on time, all of our guests commented on his performance and how amazing he was. We were gutted when it had to end. Thank you Marcus, you were brilliant!

Simply put Marcus was absolutely sensational. We had booked Marcus for a 3 hour slot at our wedding to play to our guests as they arrived at the venue, and to play in the background during our wedding breakfast. His communication throughout from the day we booked him was excellent. He arrived early, no fuss, set up and started to play. To be honest I didn't even see him arrive he just did. He started to play in the venue but as the weather was so hot everyone was outside, so he just came out played outside and performed again no fuss. We sat down for our wedding breakfast and he performed in the background. Not overpowering just very nice background music. His repertoire of songs is first class and includes loads of well known songs by big artists. Marcus performs these songs with his own spin perfectly. We had also asked at short notice if he could learn one or two other songs to play on the day which he did no problem at all. One Man, One Guitar, One fantastic Voice. If you want to introduce some class to your event then you must book this man. Thank you Marcus for helping us make our day a truly memorable one. Nat & Glenn x (10 / 10)

After researching various places for a solo guitarist/singer for our private function we found Marcus. From initial contact through to performing on the day he was accommodating, helpful and an excellent performer. He even learned new material especially for us and played several sets into the night. I don't normally give such a high rating for things but I am unable to find fault with everything he did and all of our guests commented on how great he was so the rating is justly deserved and I have no hesitation in recommending him and would certainly use him again. Thank you Marcus.

Dear Marcus, It was a pleasure to have you sing and play at my Birthday Party. Your voice and tone was absolutely perfect for my event. Everybody thought that you were fabulous young and old. Lucy in her twenties was amazed getting you to play Snow Patrol with zero practice and Hildergard 90+ loved your song choice and guitar playing !! My boys in their 30s thought you were super cool and I was thrilled with my special songs and a rendition of Happy Birthday. It was lovely and we will definitely book you again. With very kind wishes for much success in your career and many more happy memories

Marcus really made our perfect day complete, he sang and played guitar doing three sets throughout the day, and did an outstanding job. All of our guests have commented on how good he was and how it made the day that bit more special. We would highly recommend Marcus to anyone, nothing was too much trouble for him, he even learnt a new song for us. Thank you once again from Ash & Cobie

Marcus was professional and accommodating prior to the wedding, timely in arrival and setup and outstanding in his performance. He selected our favourite songs to perform and even learnt one for us. Thank you very much Marcus for making our day so special. We would highly recommend him for any wedding or party.

- Georgie and Oli (Wedding)

From initial contact through to the event, Marcus was the ultimate professional.  He learnt four new songs that we were particularly keen to have as part of our set list, we were not disappointed – in fact I don’t think we would have known they were new to him, if we hadn’t asked for them.  Additionally, we were able to choose from his repertoire and the order for each set flowed well.  An added bonus was that Marcus was able to have background music playing between sessions which was perfect.  I have no hesitation in recommending Marcus for your event.

Marcus sang for us at a private dining party. He gave us a very good range of songs and his style was perfect for our evening. Marcus is a very personable guy and was very laid back about the arrangements. All our guests enjoyed his singing and we even did some dancing. Marcus helped to make this a very special evening.

- Private party, Cambridge

 

Marcus kept us entertained brilliantly all evening with his large repertoire of favourite songs. He arrived early with his entire pa system and was friendly efficient to deal with throughout. I would thoroughly recommend Marcus if you are looking for a troubadour that you can trust, who will perform beautifully and almost certainly leave your crowd wanting more!

Marcus made an excellent performance at our wedding. Came earlier and had background music during the breakfast reception. His voice is fantastic and the guests love it. We had him for the entire evening and collaborated together regarding the repertoire. Highly recommend Marcus for any type of event. Thank you for making our wedding reception special!

Marcus was awesome, he played the perfect which was 'perfect' by Ed Sheeran for my sister's entrance song and other songs to celebrate the civil wedding. His voice is beautiful and he plays really well. Lots of guests complimented the the music after the ceremony. Alongside this he was super professional, he gave us a choice of songs which we can pick too. We booked Marcus last minute and he was super quick to respond and help. Thank you again for making my sister's day Special. If you're looking for anyone to sing and play a guitar you don't need to look any further! I would highly recommend Marcus :-)

It was also really easy dealing with Marcus sorting out requests and arrangements. We'll definitely be booking again. So, thanks a lot, man! I thoroughly recommend him for others out there...cheers.

- Rich (family birthday)

Marcus performed as a surprise entertainment for a ladies lunch. It was for a friend who loves Simon and Garfunkel. Marcus performed a medley of Simon and Garfunkel’s hits. He liaised with me to arrange running order, favourite songs and details. He was prompt, professional and really good. I wouldn’t hesitate to book him again!  He brought The Boxer to the party. He went down a storm!

What a pleasure it was to have you at our 30th birthday party, thank you from us both for putting on such a great performance... everyone really enjoyed the evening, we have had many of the people who attended comment on your wonderful array of songs and how good your voice was.

Hi Marcus, just wanted to say thanks so much for Saturday night, the hen loved it as did everyone else! Thanks for getting involved and coping with the various requests as well, and especially for learning Fast Car which was great.

- Rachel (Hen Party)

 

Hey Marcus. It was perfect. Thank you so much. She loved the song choice, and the fact that you played her new favourite song. Three songs were just about right. She asked me to say thank you to you for making the effort last minute to learn a new song. Greatly appreciated. Wish you all the best.

- Jai (proposal)

Marcus was fantastic, a great choice.  We received lots of comments about how good he was, especially helping to set the relaxed mood early on prior to the ceremony & smoothly filling in as the bride was delayed for a while.  He covered some of our favourite songs which will now live long in the memory.  Thank you Marcus.

- Gary & Dianne (wedding)

Marcus was absolutely fantastic. He managed to sing in the background yet fill the marquee with his smooth and mellow tones. He bridged the gap from day to evening perfectly. I will definitely be using Marcus again at other events.

- Hollie & Matt (wedding)

Marcus was amazing he sang every song we asked for. His voice is amazing, looking forward to booking him again.

- Annabel (private party)

My goodness you sound even better in real life! I enjoyed hearing all the songs. Thank you so much for learning the requested songs you sounded truly amazing and I really appreciated you  changing the order and saving the songs till we were in the room. Many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed your singing and I have passed on your details. Thank you for being so patient and your performance was spot on both sets of songs perfect.

- Natasha (wedding)
