TESTIMONIALS  AND RECOMMENDATIONS

TESTIMONIALS

"I hired Rachel to play for an event yesterday at our local golf course. Rachel was an absolute dream and extremely professional from our very first email, communication was brilliant and I knew I could trust her to show up etc. We just wanted some background music whilst our guests enjoyed a buffet etc. singing wasn't required for this event so Rachel was more than happy to just play for us. We requested her to play some soft love ballads, as well as some specific songs.  We got exactly what we asked for, soft background music that was so so lovely to listen to, (piano/cocktail bar vibes)  Rachel's piano skills are absolutely fantastic.  Rachel was already set up and ready to go when we arrived, beautifully presented and it felt like she played constantly for 2.5 hours! the guests ALL said how amazing she was and how it completely lifted the atmosphere of the event. It was such a pleasure to meet Rachel and have her perform for us and I would highly recommend her expertise for any event in the future. 10/10! "

"Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. You absolutely smashed it and understood exactly what we wanted.I had the best day and part of that was due to you! The song playing as I was walking down the aisle was just perfect!!! Flawless. Everything was stunning, and I'm so so grateful to have had you there. I can't thank you enough. My mother and mother in law got emotional as I walked down the aisle - they loved the way you played Say You Love Me.  Thank you so much again for all your hard work. You're such a lovely person too and you looked incredible on the day."

"I hired Rachel to play at my mum's 70th birthday party. I have to say that we had the best night. Rachel was very professional. She sang all the songs we chose she looked and sounded lovely and had the crowd up on their feet. I would highly recommend her."

"Rachel's undoubted talent is matched by her professionalism.  She has a wide range of material and took time to get the right balance for the event. The  warmth of her personality, her vibrant and accomplished performance and connection with her audience made her a great choice.  Everyone loved her and she could not have done more to make the evening a success.   Highly recommended!! "

"We have booked Rachel several times over recent years and each time we have been impressed with her professional vocal and piano talents. Our audience is primarily of the more senior sector; however Rachel is just as comfortable belting out a Chuck Berry rocker as she is with an Adele ballad.  We have confidence in recommending Rachel for: weddings, parties, socials, dinner dances etc. you will not be disappointed."

"Any wedding day will inevitably be full of highlights but one of my favourites at ours was Rachel’s rendition of an Elvis song, for which I re-wrote the words especially for my wife. I had no idea how she was going to pull it off but it was better than I could ever have expected. Rachel’s performance was flawless and I loved the wide range of songs she chose to sing. There was something for everyone, young and old. She’s a true professional and I would highly recommend her for any event."

"We have booked Rachel as a vocalist for our venue on a number of occasions over the past few years and she has always provided the pub with a fabulous evening's entertainment. Rachel has such a wide repertoire and is brilliant at tailoring her performance to the atmosphere on the night - even taking requests, and builds a rapport with her audience. Highly recommend her vocal talents!"

I booked Rachel to sing at my mother’s 60th and she was fantastic.  She pitched the playlist perfectly and by the end of the evening everyone from the oldest friend to my four year old niece was up dancing.  In fact this led to Rachel being asked to sing at my niece’s 5th birthday party and my friend’s 30th, illustrating the diversity of Rachel’s appeal and repertoire.  Every time I’ve seen Rachel perform she is professional, impressive and works the room.  I would recommend Rachel to bring any party to life.
