" We booked James just a few days before our New Years Eve wedding - we hadn't heard him play so it was a risk, but it was so worth it!!! He played absolutely beautifully and really picked up on the atmosphere of the room and the guests really enjoyed it. Aside from his playing and professionalism, he was very polite, respectful and flexible. I would highly recommend him. "

" I had james play during my wedding breakfast at my wedding on Friday 24th may, he was a big hit with my guests and we loved him. He played our wedding song as requested, and even offered to learn any song request we wanted prior to our event. I would recommend James to play at your event, we are looking for another party excuse to have James play again for us. "

" James played for our Wedding - both at the drinks reception and during the Wedding breakfast. Excellent pre / post event communication, helpful and reliable, but more importantly our guests loved his music! Thank you! "

Mr & Mrs Norton, Wood Hall Hotel, Wetherby

" James was amazing from beginning to end, he helped us choose our music as we had no idea what sounded good on the piano. It all came together perfectly on the day and the music sounded so amazing I was in tears before I’d even entered the ceremony room, it just made that perfect moment all the more special. Six weeks on and people are still telling me how lovely the music was. James is so friendly and polite which was very important to us as wedding planning is stressful enough but he made it all so easy and fun. I honestly can't recommend James highly enough, if you're looking for a pianist to play at your wedding or event James is your man, you won't be disappointed. "
