“Toby's playing was fantastic and blended in perfectly to our special day. Thank you!”

Mohamed & Rebecca, Wedding, Birmingham, January 2020

“We wanted to celebrate in style and create an occasion that would stay in the memory for a long time. Jazz played live on the piano creates an informal atmosphere that helps people relax and is that bit special. Toby's playing was excellent - as a musician I wish I could have just sat and listened. Also the level of professional service was very good, very friendly and easy to talk to. All in all, Toby has helped to make this a memory we will treasure.”

Nick , Private Party in Warwick, 2019

“Beautiful pianist, very quick to set up and played a great mix of music. His jazz playing is particularly good!”

Shuri, Private Event, Birmingham, December 2019
