Matthew - Singer / Guitarist Reviews
    I would like to say a huge thank you to Matthew for Sunday, it was so perfect having him sing mine and my husbands song as I walked up the aisle. It was a surprise for my other half and he was blown away. Everyone said how beautiful it was and what an amazing voice Matthew has. It was perfect. Thank you also to Bands for Hire for a very easy process with lots of communication. Just fabulous.

    I just wanted to say a big thanks to Matt for the music on our wedding day. It was a really great addition to our post-ceremony drinks party. All of our guests complimented Matt on the day.

    Rob Anderson - Wedding
    From initial enquiry to the event itself Bands For Hire were timely in their initial response and we received good communication from them throughout. Matt was the perfect choice for our intimate wedding at The Lost Village of Dode in Kent. He arrived early, was polite, chatty and mingled with the guests perfectly. Matt has the most incredible voice we'd ever heard and is a wonderful musician. We feel absolutely honoured to have had him perform on our special day. All the guests have raved about him and his performance since! Matt was a star, dealt with requests with patience and good humour and is a thoroughly lovely guy. I wouldn't hesitate to book with you again for other celebrations and I'm sure our guests would too. Thank you so much Matt, you're an absolute star and Bands for Hire....so glad we found you!

    Matthew performed for our company barbecue, he sang a wide range of songs and also did some requests. Everyone enjoyed his performance. He was friendly and professional and we would highly recommend him.

    Jane Jordan - Corporate Summer BBQ Party
    Matthew did an AMAZING job at our wedding! His laid back, flexible yet highly professional approached fitted perfectly into the vibe of the day. His song choice was spot on, he was friendly and interacted with guests and most importantly is a brilliantly talented musician and singer! Lots of the guests commented along the lines of: ‘where did you find this guy, he’s ace!’ Hopefully he’ll get a booking or two from the event! Thanks again Matthew!

    Hayley Summer - Wedding
    We booked Matthew to sing for early evening entertainment at our wedding and we honestly can't recommend him highly enough. Due to not knowing what entertainment we would be allowed to have on the day, Matthew was quite a last minute booking but we're so glad that we did and can't quite believe our luck in securing someone so fab so close to our date! Matthew's covers were fantastic and he really brought such a great atmosphere to the evening celebrations. So many guests commented on how amazing he was- and I'm pretty sure one was hoping to book him as a result! Matthew was really lovely and even spent time chatting to family and friends in his break as well as squeezing in an extra song when guests didn't want him to finish! If we ever need to book a musician again there'd be no questions in booking Matthew. Thank you so much! It made our day

    Jodie Ballard - Wedding
    We also wanted to say how fantastic Matthews performance was! We thought he was brilliant and all of our guests absolutely loved him. We even had to give out his details as some wanted to book him for their own events! Please pass this on to him to show him how pleased we were with his performance.

    Sarah McKernan - Wedding
    We couldn’t have been happier with Matt. He was amazing and we had plenty of positive comments from guests and the venue. We have recommended Matt to a fair few members of family and friends. He was polite, skilled and it felt like he was playing longer (for which we would be very grateful if he did indeed). If there is anything I regret, it would be not having him booked for the whole day and evening!
