Testimonials

"My wife (then fiancee) and I had seen PR (or Phil as we know him!) several times playing at various pubs and restaurants in the Dorset area and at the wedding of some friends in the Maldives, and he was our first choice to play at our wedding-thankfully he was available and played a fantastic set for us at our bash in Devon. Phil's repertoire is huge and despite being a solo act he has everyone up and dancing before the end of the first number. He covers everything from pop, soul and country through to blues, folk and rock, all seamlessly woven together with his great vocals and flawless guitar playing, not to mention his witty and hilarious anecdotes and audience banter between songs. We couldn't have wished for a better performer for our wedding-so much better than a cheesy disco and classier than a noisy rock band!

"I booked Phil to play at our company function with his rock band The Lost Boys. They were SUPERB, they really knew how to rock the crowd and played hit after hit with barely a pause for breath!! My favourites were their blistering versions of Seven Nation Army, Mr Brightside and Summer Of 69, absolutely brilliant band and what a singer. They really made our bash go with a bang!
Michelle Diabase (Function) 10/10"

"Phil did our wedding back in 2014 in Brockenhurst in the New Forest and we couldnt have been happier. Amazing big sound for a solo artist and had the whole crowd on their feet dancing and come the end of his set begging for more. I felt guilty for our DJ having to follow him, he's a great big guy who makes a great big happy noise! Also a very friendly and businesslike guy to deal with prior to the event, he was happy for my fiancee and I to come to Wimborne where he's based and meet for a coffee to discuss arrangements and so forth. Always answered emails almost instantly too, didn't leave us hanging or worrying once. Cant recommend him highly enough!!
