Customer Reviews:

Des made my Mums' 90th Birthday Party such a memorable occasion, he's professional and knew just the right tunes that would fit into the event. I wouldn't hesitate to call Des again ....oh, and he's a nice bloke!
David Brand

Des recently played the piano at our wedding reception. His performance was exceptional and loved by all our guests who arrived to hear a lively choice of music. Des' personality is amazing. His attention to matching the music to the occasion added a beautiful touch to our wedding. We would not hesitate to recommend Des to play at any function.
David and Marlene

Des played piano at our Church for our marriage ceremony, we gave him modern music to learn and play and he did so brilliantly, and was also happy to undertake some (very) last minute changes. Des is a fantastic chap and no job was too big or too small. Cannot recommend Des enough!!
David Barnard

He is a fantastic Pianist and his playing really added to the ambiance of the evening. a warm and friendly person and we would not hesitate to ask him to play at events in the future.
Matt Jackson

It gives me great pleasure to write and recommend the musical talents of Des. I have known him for many years and we were colleagues in the same design and build company, but it was not until he played the piano for an important company corporate function that I realised just how musically gifted he was. When my daughter was married and her reception was arranged at Swinfen Hall, it seemed a natural choice to ask him if he would play for us during the arrival of guests and we were so pleased that he was able to do this for us. He played tirelessly for over three hours and we were delighted with the variety of music he could provide. In fact he was so good the bride and one of her bridesmaids joined him at the grand piano, much to the enjoyment of the guests. I believe that Swinfen Hall were so impressed that they asked if he would be available for similar functions! He was so professional and his exceptional talent assisted in the day being a really magical and memorable occasion for us all. We wish him every success in his musical venture and have no doubt that he will succeed. His talent and love of music are so evident and this is reflected in the appreciation shown by all those who have heard him perform.
Anne Pointer

He brought with him a bass player and together they were absolutely perfect, playing their choice of smooth, popular jazz. The music was beautifully delivered and they made such a great accompaniment to the party, the ideal background music to create a warm and swinging atmosphere and a few people couldn't resist a dance. We all loved it, young and old. He was also highly organised, professional and conscientious. Superb, I would highly recommend him.
Helen Owusu

He was absolutely brilliant. He played for 4 hours solid and he absolutely nailed every song. He combined brilliantly with the drummer and everyone agreed they produced a great sound. I would unreservedly recommend him for any function where you need live music. Not only that he is a great guy and really got into the spirit of the occasion.
Ian Pidgen

He provided excellent background music for nearly 3 hours. As a musician myself, I found him to be a talented, versatile and very professional performer. I would heartily recommend him to anyone.
Garry Martin

you pitched your programme just perfectly. Congratulations and well done!
Anne Lewis

everyone was so impressed with you, even the owner of The George said how good she thought you were. To cope with such a spread of ages and keep everyone happy is pretty impressive!
