“Thank you so VERY much for your exceptional piano playing. It was such an appropriate, tasteful and classy way to start our birthday party. Everyone was commenting on how wonderful you were. So, thank you for helping to make my birthday such an amazing evening... almost worth being 50 for!”

Diane, Birthday Party in Worthing, January 2019

“Dave was an absolute pleasure to have as part of our wedding day. He was an professional from start to finish. He was fantastic to work with prior to the wedding, and truly went the extra mile for us by learning a new and unusual piece for our 'Here Comes The Bride' aisle walk plus he was 100% receptive to the playlist we asked him to put together. We had so many comments on Dave's playing during and after the wedding day; he played beautifully and his repertoire fitted perfectly with our wedding, which was a bit more alternative and quirky. Dave's style was also fresh and unpretentious, which is so different to many of the more stuffy pianists we've seen at other weddings. We honestly cannot recommend Dave enough; we were so particular about our wedding day and wanted everything to be perfect, and Dave absolutely delivered. Thanks so much Dave!”

Faye & Bradley, Wedding in Essex, May 2018

“Dave made a wonderful atmosphere for the event. He was able to bring a key board so we could have the piano played in the function room. He played a wonderful repertoire and everyone commented on how beautifully he played and how great it was to have a pianist at the event. It was a pleasure dealing with Dave to make the arrangements and I would highly recommend him for any event.”

Karen, 80th Birthday in Brighton, January 2018

“You did a fabulous job on the day, and made it so special. Thank you so much for your skill and talent, we look forward to seeing you play again.”

Giles and Zoe, Wedding in Worthing, June 2017
