Right from our initial contact we had confidence in Connor. We listened to some of his songs on the internet and looked at his playlist before deciding to proceed. He suggested a few alternatives for the evening’s running order, and we settled on 3 sets of live songs and DJ service, all easily arranged via a couple of emails and phone calls.
On the evening itself he arrived in plenty of time and we made some changes to what we’d agreed beforehand – Connor making a number of suggestions which made a real difference to the evening. Connor’s performance was outstanding – he has a fabulous, versatile voice and a very extensive range of styles, which were really well suited to our ‘do’. He was happy to take requests, and even sang Happy Birthday to a couple of our guests. Everybody said that he made the evening, and had nothing but praise for him. His fee was most reasonable, and was great value for money. We would unhesitatingly book him again and would recommend him highly – in fact a few of our guests have already asked for his details.
We Just wanted to say a massive thank you from both of us for yesterday. You were brilliant and so professional and personal to us. Everybody loved it! So thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Huge thanks to you for making our Christmas Tree Festival so special. It was a truly magical evening, enjoyed by all, your voice was super amazing as always with a great selection of songs. I am sure we have raised more money than last year and word will spread about our happy family that is St Barnabas Church, and we will grow our church which is so important for our future. We look forward to welcoming you back next year! You are a star ⭐ Truly Brilliant!
He is simply an incredible Singer and entertainer! He put so much effort and polish into his performance even though what was asked of him was decided upon last minute! I would highly recommend anyone considering a live singer, to hire him. You will not be disappointed! - Thanks!
We were very impressed with Connor at our school ball. He communicated well before the event and was on time and ready to play when the guests were seated. He was very accommodating and fitted in with our plans throughout the night. Great singer who can sing anything! has had very positive feedback!!! Would definitely recommend and invite to play for us again!
We had the pleasure of having Connor perform at my Mum’s 60th birthday and he was absolutely fantastic. From our first communication until the end of the night Connor was 100% professional and a pleasure to work with. On top of being a very talented vocalist and guitarist, Connor is very flexible and adapted his sets to work around the party which was really appreciated. He set the perfect smooth tone for the beginning of the party, and got everyone up and dancing after the food.
Very professional, and beautiful, soft velvety voice perfect for a wedding day. He sang beautifully for our ceremony and drinks reception just creating the most amazing atmosphere and so many people said it was the highlight for them and a really nice touch. During the organising leading up to the day he was very helpful and happy to take any requests, even if the song was a bit strange and unfamiliar to him, he created and adapted it in the most genius way and even offered to record a version of it just for us after the wedding!! Do not regret booking him at all. Well done!!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for singing on our wedding day. From the ceremony songs, then champagne reception and evening party you were simply stunning. We couldn't have ever asked for more. It was hard to believe your voice was live, many guests were amazed at your vocal ability! We are forever grateful and wish you all the best of luck in the world.
After searching though lots of singers on the net, we stopped as soon as we got to Connor due to the quality of his voice. It was streets ahead of any others we 'auditioned' and so asked our Dad to hire him. He did not disappoint! He warmed up our evening perfectly and played lots of 'Frank Sinatra" and "Buble" type swing songs which were just perfect - before we had a DJ to end the night. Book this man now! you won't be let down!
My husband secretly booked Connor to perform 3 brilliant sets of songs as a surprise for me on my 40th and he made the day! Starting off with acoustic songs while we ate and then after got us all grooving. This followed by another couple of hours as a DJ playing a fantastic set, then ended up with MORE singing! He has the most incredible voice! we will be booking him again!
I booked Connor to perform on my Wedding Day and would like to offer a special well earned thank you! He was absolutely amazing, and his professionalism shone through.. he won everyone over with the feeling and emotion he put into every song he sang. Nearly all our guests were in awe of him! I would have no hesitation to recommend him for your Wedding or Event! Fantastic! 10/10
