Amazingly beautiful voice, calm and friendly, just perfect to play our ceremony and reception! Thanks again!

Becky Simms

Event: Private Party

R Jay was amazing - I couldn't be happier with his performance and professionalism. His voice may even be better in real life than on the videos!! He was just fantastic. I would highly recommend him - he was the talk of our event and created such a special memory for us and all our guests. He made a real effort to personalise the set to my parents, it was their 40th anniversary and he made it so special for them. If you want an absolute professional who is an amazing singer and guitarist, look no further than R Jay!

We booked R Jay to play at our wedding and he was fantastic. He also learned our aisle song which was slightly complicated. We would absolutely recommend to others, 5 stars!

Event: Wedding
Location: Bedfordshire

R Jay was brilliant... He arrived and set up well in advance and played music to help fill the delayed arrival of the bride. He learnt three new songs for the ceremony which we requested and were not on his list and they all sounded great and gave the ceremony a really personal touch. His two sets sounded wonderful and so many people commented on how good he was. All in all, a five star performance which we were delighted with and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

RJ was fantastic! Friendly and an amazingly talented singer who everyone thought was fantastic. He did a range of songs that kept us all entertained and when we requested songs, he was happy to oblige. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Fab night was had by all thanks to RJ.

Lily Grier

Prior to our wedding my husband and I had a conversation with R Jay regarding the music list and extra songs we would like. R Jay was so accommodating and let us choose what songs we wanted. I received a confirmation email from him the day before the wedding which also helped to put my mind at ease. He was very prompt and had set up and was playing by the time we walked through to the conservatory (which is what I had requested) so our guests were greeted by him playing. Every song R Jay played/sang sounded brilliant, he’s a great guitarist and has a lovely voice and was exactly how we imagined the music to be at our wedding. We would highly recommend R Jay and will also keep him in mind for our future events. Thanks again!
