"First and foremost, Chris's playing abilities were great as many of our family also play guitars I was keen to have someone accomplished. He played at my birthday party in a nice hotel alongside afternoon tea and many guests said how lovely it was. I would book him again. He was helpful, answered emails on time, was pleasant and I am thinking about when I can have another party so I can get him to come and play!"
