What people say Help

  • We were very happy with Mark on our wedding day. He was on time, courteous, discussed arrangements for music at the ceremony with the celebrant and performed well. He helped us pick the music and generally adapted the music to the mood in the room!

    Veronica, Wedding, Kent, May 2016
  • We loved Mark's performance! All our guests complimented on his music on the day of our wedding.

    Alexandra, Wedding, London, June 2015
  • I just wanted to pass on our thanks to both Mark and A Girl Called Sue for their performance at our wedding in September. When we arrived at our reception Mark was set up outside on the roof garden playing his keyboard - what a brilliant idea! He was brilliant and played our requests perfectly. He was such a professional but also a lovely guy and I will be recommending him to people I chat to on a wedding magazine forum.

    Katy, Wedding, September 2014
  • I wanted to say how super Mark was yesterday. He really was great and very appropriate. I would highly recommend him.

    Genevieve, Party, October 2013
  • Huge thanks to you for being our Musical director. We were pleasantly surprised and honored on how you took it upon yourself to add your own special touch and bring a sense of elegance and sophistication to the whole production. Your performances were truly outstanding. You managed to create suitable background music which enhanced and added to the whole atmosphere. You were extremely professional and patient and a willingness to help ensure that all went well on the night. We all hope to work with you again in the future and would highly recommend you to anyone needing a pianist and so much more!
