Ryder - Singer/Guitarist Feedback

He played at my wife’s 50th Birthday party and made it a night to remember. An incredibly talented young man who deserves to go far

Paul Girling,

Thank you for making our wedding unique and unforgettable. All of our guests couldn't praise you more. You really made the afternoon amazing and words can't describe how I felt when I walked into the ceremony room. We can't wait to have another event so we can book you again!

Maria & Jeff Usmani,

I just wanted to thank you for playing at our wedding at Down Hall. You were absolutely brilliant. The songs you played were fantastic for the atmosphere we wanted to create on our wedding day. The sun was shining, you played the classics, and you made everyone feel happy. We have had so many compliments about your talent from our guests and we would highly recommend you

Hayley & Terry Lancaster,

Your acoustic sets were brilliant and you managed to read the ambience of the afternoon perfectly. Everyone was very complimentary, and my friends all keep telling me how they had such a fab time dancing under the stars

Fleur Devereux,

Having known him for many years, and having seen and heard his musical talents first hand, there was nobody else that my husband and I would have wanted to play at our wedding. He played a beautiful acoustic set during our drinks reception and we have had so many wonderful compliments from our guests. He also learned and played a new song for our first dance. But most special of all, He set my bridesmaid's wedding speech to music and sung it. His talents and abilities are amazing and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him to anyone - he is brilliant! Thank you so much for being part of our special day.

Chantel and Richard Jeffery,

Thank you so much for playing, you really made the party. You have a great voice and our guests loved it

Sarah Olley,

From the first time my dad and I heard him sing at a Down Hall open day we knew he would make the wedding even more special! He learned all the words to 'Years From Now’ which made the ceremony very personal and the drinks reception had a lovely upbeat atmosphere. The fact that people were trying to give him extra money to perform for even longer during the wedding breakfast is testament to how good he was! Every request was accommodated and this made for a fun-packed dinner service. I would have no hesitation in booking him for events in the future and will be keeping an eye on his diary for a night out at The Chequers!

Claire & Chris Wickerson,

He recently played at our wedding and was outstanding. He was very accommodating with song choices and even learned a new song especially for our first dance. All of our guests agreed that he made the evening reception a night to remember, and we highly recommend him. We would have no hesitation in booking him again for similar events

Lewis & Eleanor Martin,
