Luke – Thank you so much!! Still on a high to be honest – such an amazing day but so surreal! It really was the people there that made it. You did a fantastic job and various guests have continued to rave about you all this week! Can’t thank you enough for ravelling down & creating an amazing atmosphere. My maid of honour was reduced to tears when she heard Boston during the meal, she wasn’t expecting it! – Alex L
Hi Luke, I just wanted to say thank you for performing at our wedding reception over Easter. We are only just back to reality! It was great and the guests loved your playing. We really appreciated you helping out last minute (and the disney requests!) – Katie H
“I would like to congratulate you on your style and expertise. Apart from the ability to put your own stamp on all the songs you performed on piano and guitar, I loved your interaction with the audience. It’s not enough these days to be able to play, you need to play what they want and when they want it. That’s what you do.
My wife and I were blown away when we went for a quiet drink after dinner, and there you were playing the guitar, singing, and setting a great mood under the stars..
Well done and good luck with the future. I’m sure you will be very busy with a talent like that.”
