Francis performed at our Masquerade ball at Cranage Hall in Cheshire to raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust. His guitar style is unique, effortlessly and perfectly playing modern hits and standards on his guitar as a perfect accompaniment to the evening. Our ball guests gave Francis rapturous applause during and at the end of his set and he really added some class with a modern twist to the evening. We left the play list to Francis and he did not disappoint. We couldn’t have asked for a better musician and would highly recommend him for any occasion.

Thank you for coming over to Roecliffe, North Yorkshire to play at my wedding. You were exactly what were after and I felt you set a lovely tone for our drinks reception. 5 stars – you were amazing.
Francis performed at our church wedding and was absolutely fantastic! He learnt my favourite song – usually played by 3 guitars – and it was amazing, so much better than I could have imagined, and played it beautifully as I walked down the aisle. In addition to this he learnt yet another song to surprise my husband as we walked back down the aisle after the ceremony.
He was thrilled when he heard it and I can’t thank Francis enough for recording both songs for us to keep as a lasting memory of the day. Our guests were thoroughly entertained both before the ceremony and during the signing of the register and many commented to us on the day and afterwards about how much they enjoyed listening to Francis. We couldn’t have asked for a better musician and would highly recommend him for any occasion. Thank you so much Francis!
