Reviews

Guitarist Marcus

Simply put Marcus was absolutely sensational. We had booked Marcus for a 3 hour slot at our wedding to play to our guests as they arrived at the venue, and to play in the background during our wedding breakfast. His communication throughout from the day we booked him was excellent. He arrived early, no fuss, set up and started to play.

To be honest I didn't even see him arrive he just did. He started to play in the venue but as the weather was so hot everyone was outside, so he just came out played outside and performed again no fuss. We sat down for our wedding breakfast and he performed in the background. Not overpowering just very nice background music. His repertoire of songs is first class and includes loads of well known songs by big artists.

Marcus performs these songs with his own spin perfectly. We had also asked at short notice if he could learn one or two other songs to play on the day which he did no problem at all. One Man, One Guitar, One fantastic Voice. If you want to introduce some class to your event then you must book this man. Thank you Marcus for helping us make our day a truly memorable one. Nat & Glenn x (10 / 10)

Guitarist Marcus

Where do I begin. I am a self confessed perfectionist but when I started planning our wedding I was looking for a singer during our drinks reception and wedding breakfast. Marcus was AMAZING. If you want perfection but are unsure or in doubt, book Marcus and you will not be let down. He was truly brilliant. Set up on time, all of our guests commented on his performance and how amazing he was. We were gutted when it had to end. Thank you Marcus, you were brilliant!

Guitarist Marcus

After researching various places for a solo guitarist/singer for our private function we found Marcus. From initial contact through to performing on the day he was accommodating, helpful and an excellent performer. He even learned new material especially for us and played several sets into the night. I don't normally give such a high rating for things but I am unable to find fault with everything he did and all of our guests commented on how great he was so the rating is justly deserved and I have no hesitation in recommending him and would certainly use him again. Thank you Marcus.

Guitarist Marcus

Dear Marcus, It was a pleasure to have you sing and play at my Birthday Party. Your voice and tone was absolutely perfect for my event. Everybody thought that you were fabulous young and old. Lucy in her twenties was amazed getting you to play Snow Patrol with zero practice and Hildergard 90+ loved your song choice and guitar playing !! My boys in their 30s thought you were super cool and I was thrilled with my special songs and a rendition of Happy Birthday. It was lovely and we will definitely book you again. With very kind wishes for much success in your career and many more happy memories

Guitarist Marcus

Marcus really made our perfect day complete, he sang and played guitar doing three sets throughout the day, and did an outstanding job. All of our guests have commented on how good he was and how it made the day that bit more special. We would highly recommend Marcus to anyone, nothing was too much trouble for him, he even learnt a new song for us. Thank you once again from Ash & Cobie

Guitarist Marcus

Marcus sang for us at a private dining party. He gave us a very good range of songs and his style was perfect for our evening. Marcus is a very personable guy and was very laid back about the arrangements. All our guests enjoyed his singing and we even did some dancing. Marcus helped to make this a very special evening

Guitarist Marcus

Marcus kept us entertained brilliantly all evening with his large repertoire of favourite songs. He arrived early with his entire pa system and was friendly efficient to deal with throughout. I would thoroughly recommend Marcus if you are looking for a troubadour that you can trust, who will perform beautifully and almost certainly leave your crowd wanting more!

Guitarist Marcus

Marcus made an excellent performance at our wedding. Came earlier and had background music during the breakfast reception. His voice is fantastic and the guests love it. We had him for the entire evening and collaborated together regarding the repertoire. Highly recommend Marcus for any type of event. Thank you for making our wedding reception special!

Guitarist Marcus

Marcus helped me arrange something very special for my friend's 25th Birthday. Something we will both remember for a long time! He was very accommodative to my requests which was extremely helpful! His performance was beautiful :) Thanks Marcus!

I am so glad I chose Marcus as the musician in my plan to propose to my girlfriend. He took it very seriously and done it professionally.

Guitarist Marcus

Thank you so much Marcus we all had the best night. Real professional, amazing voice and an absolute pleasure. I’ve had so many messages saying how amazing you were so much so we’ve started to make up random reasons to have parties to book you again. Would highly recommend - thank you again!

Guitarist Marcus

Hi Marcus, Just wanted to say thank you again for Saturday night. We really enjoyed your performance. All of our guests were commenting how good you are. Your brilliant! Thanks again.

Guitarist Marcus

Marcus was awesome, he played the perfect which was 'perfect' by Ed Sheeran for my sister's entrance song and other songs to celebrate the civil wedding. His voice is beautiful and he plays really well. Lots of guests complimented the the music after the ceremony. Alongside this he was super professional, he gave us a choice of songs which we can pick too. We booked Marcus last minute and he was super quick to respond and help. Thank you again for making my sister's day Special. If you're looking for anyone to sing and play a guitar you don't need to look any further! I would highly recommend Marcus :-)

Guitarist Marcus

A big thanks to Marcus - his performance was awesome, everyone really enjoyed the vibe, his energy and his professionalism - so thanks a lot. It was also really easy dealing with Marcus sorting out requests and arrangements. We'll definitely be booking again. So, thanks a lot, man! I thoroughly recommend him for others out there...cheers

Guitarist Marcus

What a pleasure it was to have you at our 30th birthday party, thank you from us both for putting on such a great performance... everyone really enjoyed the evening, we have had many of the people who attended comment on your wonderful array of songs and how good your voice was. You were the ultimate professional from start to finish and would highly recommend you to anyone who was looking for a live acoustic musician for any Birthday, Wedding or Party. Thanks again for making our evening so special.

Guitarist Marcus

Just to say thank you so much Marcus - you did a really great set of sets and everyone was very complimentary and it made the day really special ! Francesca was so happy - fab live lounge experience. What a super professional guy and easy to work with. Hope to be booking you again soon all the very best

Guitarist Marcus

Hi Marcus, just wanted to say thanks so much for Saturday night, the hen loved it as did everyone else! Thanks for getting involved and coping with the various requests as well, and especially for learning Fast Car which was great.

Guitarist Marcus

Hey Marcus. It was perfect. Thank you so much. She loved the song choice, and the fact that you played her new favourite song. Three songs were just about right. She asked me to say thank you to you for making the effort last minute to learn a new song. Greatly appreciated. Wish you all the best.

Guitarist Marcus

Marcus was absolutely fantastic. He managed to sing in the background yet fill the marquee with his smooth and mellow tones. He bridged the gap from day to evening perfectly. I will definitely be using Marcus again at other events
Hollie & Matt’s wedding

Guitarist Marcus

Marcus was fantastic, a great choice. We received lots of comments about how good he was, especially helping to set the relaxed mood early on prior to the ceremony & smoothly filling in as the bride was delayed for a while. He covered some of our favourite songs which will now live long in the memory. Thank you Marcus.

Guitarist Marcus

Marcus was fantastic; friendly, very versatile and played brilliantly. I would strongly recommend him

Guitarist Marcus

We truly enjoyed Marcus' performance at our (casual) wedding party inside Victoria Park. Marcus is a great singer / musician / person and we would book him again. Thanks for contributing to our special day.

Guitarist Marcus

Just wanted to say thank you so so much for yesterday! Absolutely loved it, really made our big day extra special! :)

Guitarist Marcus

Hi Marcus, we just wanted to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding last Saturday!! We loved the music you played and our guests thought you were fantastic too. Bella loved you and your guitar! You really were a great addition to our relaxed day! Thanks for also being super chilled about the running of the day, it was really helpful and made for a stress free day! Thank you for all your contact before the wedding too! It really was appreciated and made the whole processes super easy! Thanks again Marcus

Guitarist Marcus

From initial contact through to the event, Marcus was the ultimate professional. He learnt four new songs that we were particularly keen to have as part of our set list, we were not disappointed – in fact I don’t think we would have known they were new to him, if we hadn’t asked for them. Additionally, we were able to choose from his repertoire and the order for each set flowed well. An added bonus was that Marcus was able to have background music playing between sessions which was perfect. I have no hesitation in recommending Marcus for your event.

Guitarist Marcus

Marcus was amazing he sang every song we asked for. His voice is amazing, looking forward to booking him again

Guitarist Marcus

My goodness you sound even better in real life! I enjoyed hearing all the songs. Thank you so much for learning the requested songs you sounded truly amazing and I really appreciated you changing the order and saving the songs till we were in the room. Many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed your singing and I have passed on your details. Thank you for being so patient and your performance was spot on both sets of songs perfect

Guitarist Marcus

Just a little line to say a massive thanks for last night. You performed and played absolutely amazing. Everyone commented on how good you was…and thanks for playing a lot longer than intended. Hope you got home safely…would most definitely book you again and recommend you to friends.

Guitarist Marcus

Hi Marcus. What can I say - FANTASTIC result! So impressed. Really really happy with it. I still may need you to play it live - I'll keep you posted. Really pleased thank you Marcus.

Guitarist Marcus

Marcus was a fantastic addition to our family celebration. We were a small group but he managed to make us jump to the “dance floor “. Everybody had an amazing time, he is an excellent musician, great voice and a lovely person, very polite, and willing to accommodate his vast repertoire with our requests. I highly recommend him, you won’t be let down!

Guitarist Marcus

Just to say thank you again for last weekend. My family had a terrific time and your performance was a highlight of the day.
You have a great voice and I wish you all the very best for the future.

Guitarist Marcus

We hired Marcus for 2 x 45 minute sets for our garden party. The whole experience from start to finish was a pleasure, excellent correspondence, punctual arrival, a huge repertoire of songs to choose from, and he said he would learn a couple of new ones too for us, which he did, and they were incredible. Ask for Tennessee Whisky, he does it better than Chris Stapleton! He could easily charge double what he does, and justify it with confidence, I would go as far as to say, that he is the best live solo artist we have ever seen. This young man is supremely talented, and very hard working, and if you are lucky enough to find a date when he is not busy ... book him ... you will not regret it. Thank you Marcus for making our party an incredible success. All the very best for the future.

Guitarist Marcus

Marcus played during the ceremony and drinks reception of our wedding. He was absolutely perfect, his repertoire is so wide and he was happy to play all the songs we wanted. I think his voice sounds even better in real life than online! I would highly recommend him for any event!

Guitarist Marcus

Marcus was excellent from start to finish, he played for our afternoon drinks reception and was brilliant. He was very accommodating by setting up both inside and outside a few times whilst the weather kept changing.
He was also very friendly to our guests who went over to talk to him and even learnt our favourite songs for us with only 2 weeks before the wedding.
Would highly recommend and would book again.
Thank you Marcus!

Guitarist Marcus

Marcus performed 2 sets at our wedding, one during the reception drinks and the 2nd during our wedding breakfast. Both were brilliant and all our guests really enjoyed his performances. It was quite a last minute decision to book a musician for our wedding but we were so happy with our choice to have Marcus, he even played some requested songs from our guests that hadnt been on his original song list which was amazing. Our guests couldnt praise him enough and had nothing but good things to say! Would definitely recommend Marcus to anyone considering a musician for their wedding or any other event really!

Guitarist Marcus

Marcus was a dream to work with, especially during such topsy turvy times! He handled all curve balls thrown at him (including learning last minute that singing was not allowed during the ceremony) with grace and professionalism, and provided lovely background guitar and vocals for our ceremony and drinks reception. Was communicative, flexible, friendly, and of course, talented! Would absolutely recommend.

Guitarist Marcus

Our wedding and reception at the penthouse and pavilion at the Dorchester. Marcus came ahead of time, set up and seamlessly moved between the different rooms for the ceremony and reception. He was extremely professional, and with minimal guidance from us, played a beautiful selection of songs that set the mood perfectly without interrupting the flow of the ceremony or conversation. He even took requests from guests and was played a beautiful rendition of Wonderful Tonight for our first dance. Thank you Marcus, you really made our day special

Guitarist Marcus

Just wanted to say thank you so so much for Saturday! Your are incredibly talented and we had so many wonderful comments from guests around how much they enjoyed your sets! You really made our day even more special so thank you so much we had the most perfect day!

Guitarist Marcus

Marcus was excellent, his range on songs, quality of performance and amazing attitude made it effortless to get the scene for the proposal just right. Highly recommend!

Guitarist Marcus

'I hired Marcus to sing for a private dinner I planed for my boyfriend’s birthday. He truly made the whole evening incredible and set a romantic/magical atmosphere, I couldn't have done it without him. I can't recommend Marcus enough! He had me crying with happiness with his gifted voice which is phenomenal. He was great at communicating and made my vision a reality. I will definitely be keeping him in my contacts for any upcoming events. A massive thank you

Guitarist Marcus

Marcus was brilliant when we hired him recently for our daughters christening. Amazing voice, fantastic list of songs to choose from and great customer service too responding to my many emails! I would highly recommend Marcus and would use him again at any of our events

Guitarist Marcus

We booked Marcus for our wedding reception at the beginning of August. I would thoroughly recommend him for any similar events. Communication prior was prompt & courteous, insurances etc provided for the venue without any hassle. Most importantly on the day itself he was professional, and all of the guests very much enjoyed his performances. Thank you Marcus for your involvement in our special day
