What others are saying..

We are very happy we engaged Phil to play at Lancewood Villa in the Upper Moutere for Alastair’s 60th birthday party. We were looking for someone to create a beautiful musical ambience as guests mingled for starters in the courtyard and then enjoyed a catered sit-down meal indoors. Phil provided us with just that. Besides being one of the nicest people you could meet. Phil can sing and play a really cool guitar. He has an impressively diverse playlist including his own compositions. It was nice to hear guests identifying particular numbers as their favourites. Phil gauged our crowd and context perfectly, blending into the occasion with ease both indoors and out. We would not hesitate to have Phil back again for future events and we can highly recommend him to others. Thanks Phil!’

Fiona and Alastair (Lancewood Villa)

‘We had a post party, cruisy fun day at Neudorf where we had Phil come and play live for the afternoon. He was perfect for this situation, playing a fabulous selection of old and recent music and when requested revved things up to make it more party like. Easy to have around with a friendly gentle nature and great voice, thanks Phil!’

Mike & Biddy Davies (Neudorf Vineyards)

‘Phil provided some great entertainment for our Birthday party. Lots of our guests were impressed with Phil and his easy going style of music.  Good variety and well executed covers. Would recommend Phil to others organising similar events. Thanks!’

Tim & Alison Martin (The Freehouse)

‘I hired Phil to play at our company Christmas dinner held at the Village Hall Monaco Resort. Phil’s brief was to provide background music during our meal and socialising, whilst still allowing the guests to converse. Phil achieved this well, gauging the crowd and playing music that appealed to all. Phil helped make our evening a success and I have no hesitation recommending Phil for any similar event.’

Scott Robinson (Function Organiser)

‘I have known Phil for approximately 2 years, when he was recommended to me by some good mutual friends. Since that time Phil has been employed by us on a regular basis to play music at our Bar, known as The Welsh Dragon, in Wellington. His acoustic guitar playing skills are outstanding, & he sings well from a very wide range of popular cover songs. He plays for approx 3 hours, but many a time he has gone on for longer if it proves to be a busy night & no one wants to leave!  Phil is a really nice, quiet guy who minds his own business, gets on with playing music which he obviously loves, & entertains a captive audience. He is also very flexible in the hours & times required, often filling in for someone else at very short notice. ‘
