Reviews

“Very impressed! Very organised and professional before and during our event!! A credit to the industry! We all were so impressed! Thank you, Nigel & Jane”
Nigel Rowlands, Wedding Event, Surrey

“The King of Swing sang at our daughters wedding and was just brilliant. Turned up in good time to set up, looked so smart and then gave two brilliant sets of music that the whole audience absolutely loved. The wedding was quite simply breathtaking from start to finish and the only criticism I received was that I didn’t book him for a longer time!”
Mike Harrison, Wedding Event, Buckinghamshire

“We wanted to thank you for giving our wedding that extra wow factor with your great talent. The King of Swing was recommended to us. He was the perfect choice of entertainment to get our guests tapping their feet, singing along & up & dancing.

With an amazing voice & great range of songs to suit everybody and his interaction with guests he was first class. It was also great for evening guests arriving to see that the party had already started with a swing, what a great way to start the evening off.

All of our guests were very very impressed (especially the ladies!) and we had lots of great compliments about his performance. We have since been to see him performing at the Eastbourne Band Stand with his very popular Michael Bublé tribute act and had yet another fantastic time. If you are looking for an entertainer for your wedding or any other event then look no further, you won’t be disappointed.”
Katie & Sid, Wedding, Hellingly

“The King of Swing – the ultimate performer – once heard, never forgotten and in my opinion – often sounds better than the original artists! Fantastic sound, fantastic look and fantastic opportunity for audience participation! The King of Swing – better than the rest and one of the very best!
Lord Brett McLean, The Marina Pavilion

“When I first saw him, he was booked as the Teenage Crooner and I was so amazed at his talent and style and how he appealed to all age groups, I immediately booked him for a private function.

Neither I nor my guests were disappointed and as the years have gone on he has got better and better becoming a staunch professional and not just as a ‘crooner’ but as an entertainer.

I have been to several of his gigs and can only say that as his voice has got stronger, his repertoire larger, it gets harder and harder to book seats which shows just how high his popularity is and deservedly so as well.

I would have no problem with recommending The King of Swing to any of my friends or indeed to anybody in the leisure industry who is looking for a talented and professional singer to entertain their customers.”
Di, Eastbourne Herald

“I have worked with the King of Swing for a while now, both as a crooner, recording covers (sometimes better than the original) and a solo original artist recording his own music. His voice blew us away the very first time we heard it.

With a fantastic talent and a firm, ‘head screwed on’ type manner that he brings to all aspects of his work, he really is a treat to work with. He is professional, always smartly dressed, talented, but above all, a fantastic character to work with.

A genuinely nice guy. I look forward to seeing what the future brings for the fantastic King of Swing.”
Tom, Managing Director, CMP Studios Ltd
