Wow wow wow, what can we say?
We first met James over 4 years ago at a wedding fair long before we were engaged, but as soon as we heard him song the 1st song, we both knew straight away we would book James for our special day.
He was in fact the 1st supplier we asked about availability and with James and our photographer we would have moved dates if they were not available.
From the start James was so professional yet so warm, friendly and approachable.
Communication was brilliant all the way through. James feels like a friend to us and not a supplier.
We were blown away with his service in the day, he was perfect in every single way. guests loved him.
We will definitely book you again James for our next party - you made our day perfect in more ways than one!!!
Thank you, Sarah and Andrew McNicholas xxx

James Barlow is exceptional!! He performed outstandingly throughout our Wedding Breakfast and evening reception at Caerphilly Castle last Sunday.
James possesses an amazing skill set. He performed the Master of Ceremonies duty faultlessly with perfect introductions throughout.
James strikes the perfect balance in all his songs and has a unique eye for keeping the dance floor busy.
His prior planning and arrangements with the Bride and Groom are second to none and he leaves you happy that he has all in order.
His energy, professionalism and enthusiasm is of the highest order. Can't thank him enough!
We and our guests are still reeling about how wonderful the day was and a massive portion of this is down to James and his tremendous performance.
If you are thinking about booking James, stop pondering and book him now. Trust me you will not regret it.

We had many compliments from people on your voice and how you interacted with the guests! Keep doing what your doing because you made our wedding day extra special and I'm sure you will make many more!

I was blown away by James' singing online and it was just as good in real life.
I am still getting comments about how nice it was to have a live singer and not just the usual head hurting disco that overides everything.
Very accommodating and I loved having my first dance sung live it just added that special element. Thank you.

Faye and Andrew
Inglenook Farm, Rainford. Merseyside. 13th July 2019
What can I say about James.... he was absolutely outstanding and exceeded all our expectations at our wedding yesterday.
Our guests were speechless at how good he was and his ability to get the whole wedding party on their feet and singing along......getting 80 guests at the wedding breakfast up singing and dancing to Neil Diamond's Sweet Caroline was a memory that we will never forget,which luckily was video recorded (see below!).
We would have no hesitation in recommending James for his vocal talent, his mix of music and engaging with the guests..... BOOK HIM NOW. Hugh and Carl

James is amazing! He entertained at my sister's wedding from the moment we arrived until everyone left.
He sang, DJed and had every guest and the bridal party up singing and dancing during the wedding breakfast.
Every song we requested James sang / played it.

Where do I start... I first met James at a Wedding Fayre I was about 26 weeks pregnant and hadnít even thought about entertainment, I told him I wanted our first dance to be sung live... I was pleasantly surprised after sharing our chosen song James began to sing. My eyes filled up as well as my partners. There and then without hesitation we booked.
The service we received was faultless!
If I could rate higher I would

We had James as our wedding singer recently and we were delighted with ever aspect of the day. James is really professional and he knows just what to sing/play and when.
James sang me down the aisle, during the signing of the register and back up the aisle and he sang all songs beautifully.
Lots of guests commented on how well James sang and said they thought it was a CD because he sang so well!
James sang during our wedding breakfast which was amazing, he involved all the guests and got everyone singing and waving their hands in the air, everyone loved it.
This continued into the evening with our first dance and his live performances getting everyone up on the dance floor.
We couldn't fault a single thing and we are so glad we chose him for our wedding. All our guests since the wedding have commented on how fantastic James was. We can't recommend him highly enough. Thanks James!

Wow..... James is just amazing. Everyone at our wedding commented on what a great variety of music he was playing/singing.
He was able to fill the dance floor and keep us going despite the ache from shoes and tiredness!!!
In the run up to the wedding James was very understanding and patience. Despite giving him 2 songs a week before that we wanted singing (Coldplay - something just like this and George Ezra - paradise, I did feel a bit mean about the last one) he sung both of them no problem at all for us.
We owe a special thank you to James & his support crew (aka Dad James) for going out of your way in the evening and making our day so special! Not only that James also made us a cute highlights video which is just amazing so man of many talents!!!
Youíre really missing out if you donít have him at your event!!!!

Hi James, thanks again for making our party such fun. Everyone said how much they had enjoyed themselves and it was great to see so many people up and dancing (and singing badly!!!)
Several people said they haven't had so much fun for years, and I know that to be true.
I ache all over today, except for my head... plenty of water in between the champers! I ache in places I didn't know existed, but it was well worth it.
Hope to meet you again, perhaps at a wedding venue, or maybe our 25th anniversary!
Big hugs, Karen and Paul

James sang, performed Master of Ceremonies and was our DJ at our wedding at The Villa, Wrea Green on 27th December 2017 on the Deluxe Package.
He was, quite simply, fantastic. Countless guests said how brilliant he was and he was in our view worth every penny.
Nothing was too much for James, he was patient in listening to our wishes, excellent in offering advice and reassurance and absolutely superb on the day.
We were blown away by the quality of his singing, how effortlessly he kept guests entertained and on their feet dancing. Donít think twice about booking James. Get it done early so you donít miss out!

Well where do I start.... James made the day even more perfect. His communication before the event and his friendly manner on the day was second to none.
His vocals are just amazing and everyone commented on how wonderful he was.
James was also our MC on the day and performed this so well. We had also planned for an outside wedding... but due to the English summer weather (rain) James had to change his set up on the day with professionalism.
I cannot thank James enough for making a wonderful day even more special.
Thank you (don't hesitate book James today to add the wow factor to your event)

Daniel and Nicky Walker
Goldstone Hall, Market Drayton. Shropshire. 15th July 2017
James did all the entertainment for us not long ago on the 7th July 2017. I do know him and his family well but that's not the point, I don't do bias - just the truth.
OH WOW his voice it's unbelievable. I wanted him to sing Nadine, as my name is Nadine, by Chuck Berry when I made my way down the aisle.
Sorry Chuck but Jamie really did sing it better and it made me cry just before I went in. That song has always been special to me as my parents bought it when I was 4 years old it's sentimental
That beautiful powerful voice WOW and WOW even doing the DJ bit at night he sang old songs and new. I think I like James Uptown Funk better than the original.
His eclectic taste in music blends with everyone he mixes it up his voice then CDs his arrangements were spot on.
He's friendly, warm, welcoming and all the things you need at your wedding, I am very very proud of him.
Five stars just isn't enough he made my whole wedding day unforgettable Thank you James xxxx

Duncan and Esther Careless
The Riverside Hotel, Branston. Staffordshire. 22nd April 2017
James played at our recent wedding and our guests didn't stop raving about how fantastic he was.
He is a great singer and has a wide repertoire, but also knows how to play music which keeps everyone on their feet.
A really enjoyable mixture of all types of music which kept our dance floor full from start to finish.
He catered to our brief perfectly, responded to guest requests and is a very engaging performer.
The music was one of the things I was most worried about leading up to the wedding day, as it can be difficult to judge how good performers are from online videos, but I honestly can't recommend James highly enough.
He made our night so enjoyable.
Laura and Stuart Harris
Hadley Park Hotel, Telford. Shropshire. 15th April 2017
Absolutely Amazing!!!! All our guests on our wedding day couldn't speak highly enough of James and his incredible voice and repertoire of songs.

James is truly amazing! What a voice! What a fantastic guy!
James performed at our evening wedding reception on Sunday 5th March 2017, and also provided the DJ service and up lighters for the venue making it just perfect.
From enquiring, to booking, to the evening reception James was absolutely brilliant and so helpful and friendly.
Our first dance was phenomenal thanks to James's outstanding vocals. He sang throughout the night, right up until the final song, with one fine day, and every song he performed was just exceptional.
There were too many occasions to count that our guests were saying what a truly fantastic singer he was, and he made great music choices.
We would not hesitate in recommending James to everyone, he is a must for any occasion, he certainly made our wedding reception just perfect and we cannot thank him enough xxx

Married at Woodland Manor Hotel. Bedfordshire on 26th November 2016
James was brilliant in both his singing and acting as Master of Ceremonies for us. We couldnt have asked for a more perfect day, and James was very much a big part of that.
It's not very often you have people singing and waving their arms round during a wedding breakfast and James achieves that flawlessly.
We both wanted something to break the wedding breakfast up and make it entertaining for everyone and that was exactly what we got.
Thank you once again James

James is a fantastic singer.
We decided not to have an afternoon breakfast and put everything into a celebration in the evening instead.
James made our evening so special including introducing the speeches and incorporated cutting the cake and first dance.
We have created some fantastic memories due to the upbeat atmosphere and easy flow of the evening.

Natalie and Darren Stockwin
Married at The City Rooms, Leicester on 30th September 2016
I would like to thank James for making my daughter Hannah and her Husband Rick's wedding a memorable occasion.
From the beginning James was efficient both in responding back to me and clearly explaining the packages available, to also providing a demo disc to give us some ideas.
I always felt confident that I would not need to chase him up on anything as the day approached and things got a tad busy.
The singing in between the courses gave a relaxed feel with people joining in to sing along and wave arms. The balance was just right between singing and playing tracks. James remembered our requests and those of the guests on the day.
I would have no hesitation to recommend James for any special event.

We can't thank you enough.

James made, what was already a fantastic day, even better.
Our wedding was a small intimate gathering, with James joining us at the meal and staying with us til late.
I would highly recommend him for his talent, personality and amazing voice. He travels throughout the UK and if there is one 'must have' at your wedding - it's James. He kept the celebration going with such style and everyone raved about him.
Thank you for making our day James!
