"We wanted to say a huge thank you for making our wedding extra special! We had the most beautiful day and it was perfect for us. One of the highlights for me was undoubtedly James singing "our song " accompanied by the string trio! Wow what a moment - unforgettable and so perfect! Great job James thank you so much we couldn't have asked for more. The evening party was so good and you played many of the songs we requested, lots of our guests said what a great job you did and how much they enjoyed the whole evening. We were very lucky to find such a great, talented and professional band, a memorable evening and such good fun! Thank you again!"

The dinner is the most prestigious occasion in the FWA calendar where the great and the good from the media and football gather. Playback are an essential part of the evening. Always professional, fantastically entertaining and, most importantly, fully aware of the unique demands of the event."
