"Had John play at my 30th birthday party recently and he was absolutely amazing. Played two sets that got everyone dancing and created the perfect atmosphere. Can’t wait to find another excuse to book him again. Highly recommend him!"

Emma Camden

"Top, multi-talented musician, great guy, brilliant voice and writes fantastic music too!"

Ahmed Khwaja

"Myself and my wife recently had the pleasure of having JR perform at our wedding. John is not only a stand out performer, but one of the nicest people your ever to likely meet. He was happy to perform songs of our choosing and created two sets that met the tone of the performance times. John performed our first dance song and moved us both to tears as we danced. Our guests loved him and couldn’t praise him enough. Much love 10/10 xx"
