Amazing, played our ceremony music perfectly and kept our guests throughly entertained whilst we were away getting photos taken.

David was an absolute pleasure! Beautifully played and sang the songs we requested for walking down the aisle and kept our guests entertained for the full drinks reception. Lovely person and would highly recommend. Many of our guest complimented and a few are interested to book for their wedding also.
Thank you for making our day so special!

I just want to leave some feedback as we cannot thank David McKellar enough for how well he performed at our wedding. Even before the wedding took place, his communication the whole way through was perfect.

David sang during our ceremony and drinks reception and was fantastic!! He did exactly what we asked him to do and more! He had good banter with our guests during his set for the drinks reception which provided a great atmosphere and the songs he choose were spot on! So many of our guests commented on how good he was and how it was such a nice touch for the ceremony and drinks reception. We would highly recommend David and cannot wait to go see him perform again. Thank you so much for being part of our wedding and for making it special David. Lots of Love Sarah & Rory xxxx

Excellent service from Hireaband and they are very accommodating considering we had to make a few changes to our entertainment due to Covid. David was excellent on the day and all our guests made comment on how interactive he was with them and has a great voice. Thank you to both Hireaband and David!

Hi David, Daniel and I would like to express our thanks and appreciation for you providing such fantastic entertainment on Saturday. Every single one of our guests said how great you were and how engaging you were with them. With it being such a small wedding party, you created such a great atmosphere. Thanks again, Natalie and Daniel.

David McKellar

We just wanted to say thank you again for being a part of our wedding day! You were exactly what we were looking for and played the songs we requested including some that were new to you superbly!

We wish you all the best for the future and hope things return to normal as soon as possible for you!

Dear David,

We just wanted to drop you a very quick thank you for your incredible playing at our wedding this weekend.

James and I have done our peaks of the weekend and you featured on both of our lists. It really make the biggest difference to have live music after dinner to get the party started, and your playing and singing was amazing. You hit the tone bang on to create a fun, relaxed atmosphere where everyone felt like they could really let your hair down and we’re both so grateful to you for being so accommodating.

We hope you have a fab summer now that things seem to be getting back to a bit more of a normal place. We’ll definitely be recommending you to friends whenever we can.

Lots of love,

Rosie and James x
