Reviews

“Dear Jess, Thank you from me and Mat!!! You and your band have been absolutely fantastic – we really enjoyed having you sing and play so beautifully and for being so flexible with timing. EVERYONE loved you and the band – they all said you have the most fabulous/ stunning voice and presence. The “EVERYONE” includes all the chefs (they were boogying whilst getting the meal out), the floor staff, and my neighbours who were still working in the garden and didn’t quite make over to dinner. Thank you also for singing the 2 songs I requested – my brother (the one who led the speeches) was very touched as they were for him and thought you sang them beautifully! We will certainly be in touch again when we entertain with live music again! With very best wishes to you and all your band members ”
