"Thank you we were very happy with the music and the whole service provided by you. You set up and left discreetly and played some really good tracks. We would recommend you to our friends"
Caroline & Andrew (Garden wedding) 11/09/2020
"I had the good luck of having Ian Ingles recommend to me by one of his fellow musicians.
I approached Ian to play at my 50th Birthday party on the 22nd of February 2020 at The Queen Phillippa in Queenborough, Kent.
During the entire process, from start to finish Ian was exceptionally professional and courteous. He is very easy to deal with and an excellent communicator. On top of that, he is an extremely talented musician.
I got to choose which songs I wanted from a large list and Ian also took the time to learn some songs by request from me and they were beautifully rendered.
Lots of people were on their feet dancing, and everyone was impressed by the quality of Ian's singing and his guitar playing.
I feel very lucky to have had Ian Ingles play for my party and I would wholeheartedly recommend him for whatever occasion you may have!”
"We hired Ian Ingles after seeing him perform at a local venue in Maidstone. He played our reception drinks for our wedding and we could not fault him. He was professional but personable and his music and talent was second to none. Nothing was ever too much for Ian and he even edited my aisle song music to help out! Guests, my husband and myself alike stated how he is wasted playing these venues because he is outstanding! I could not recommend Ian enough for anyone looking to hire him for future events. Amazing guy with an amazing voice."
"I’m a big fan of live music and we asked Ian to play at our wedding on Halloween after being sent his details by another supplier. It was a small intimate wedding and we felt Ian would be perfect in gauging the room on the evening, blending in with background music or something to get everyone up and dancing. I have to say Ian exceeded all of our expectations, he played solidly without a break for the entire evening, it was amazing and our guests are still talking about him now, we loved him and they loved him, a perfect end to a perfect day.
From day one, Ian was incredibly professional and very easy to deal with. He made a special effort to learn our first dance song and offered help and advice along the way, particularly with things we hadn’t even thought of. He wanted our day to be as perfect as we did, even sweeping the floor before we all came back into the room for the evening reception – not that I want to set any expectations for future events! I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Ian for any event, and we consider ourselves very lucky to have had Ian as part of our special day.
A massive thank you Ian, you really did help make our day one to remember."
Mr & Mrs Joseph (31st October 2019)
"We had the pleasure of Ian playing at our wedding and we would definitely recommend him. Ian gave us ideas of lovely songs and then we created a wedding song list together; he was even able to learn a new song for our first dance!"

"I have seen Ian play with his various bands and also as a solo artist, so when it came to our wedding he was the obvious choice to have him play at our ceremony.
He played while our guests were arriving, being seated, he played my wife down the isle and while we signed the register.
He then played while we were having our photographs taken.
He is very professional, well dressed, open to suggestions to what to play and willing to learn any new songs that we wanted.
He really brought the personnel touch to our day, I can not recommend him highly enough".

East Quay, Whitstable.
played at a charity dinner that we had organised and delivered a fantastic
selection of acoustic covers, exactly what we had asked for.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening and was full of praise for both his vocal and guitar playing skills.
Professional and talented, we would highly recommend Ian.”
"We first heard Ian playing at a local restaurant and knew immediately his style would suit our wedding day perfectly. His set was so full of life and fun and his range of songs were a real hit on the day. We had not told our guests that we were having live music, so Ian was a great surprise to all and really got the party started. Ian is a personable guy and really made an effort to mingle with our guests - so much so many assumed he was an old friend. He even went the extra mile and climbed over a really tall gate to get to us when someone accidentally locked him out of our venue! Overall, we couldn’t have wished for better. A great voice and great entertainer".
Emma and Matt
"I booked Ian to sing at my husbands 60th birthday party. I had seen him sing at two of my friends weddings and was impressed with his relaxed performance. The audience really enjoyed the range of songs. It was perfect for the size of the venue. A full band would have been too loud, but Ian was just perfect. He was very reasonably priced and reliable. I have recommended to several friends"
"Ian played at our wedding for the ceremony , we were delighted with him and had many comments from guests on how good he was. I told him I was a Queen fan and he was more than happy to learn some more songs for us. It really felt like he was part of our special day".
Emma & Ed
"We asked Ian to play at our wedding in October and he invited us to see him play at some local venues before the event to familiarise ourselves with his style.
Ian has a wide range of songs from Ed Sheeran to Elton John and was happy to learn a song if he was not familiar with it. He suggested some choices for the ceromony when me and my husband couldn't agree and sent us live feeds from his gigs to help us decide.
He was amazing on the day and lots of the guests made a point of telling us how impressed they were with his music and voice. He is very versatile and has a wide range of music to suit any style. I would thoroughly recommend his services for a special occasion".
"When my wife and I got married, we were very keen to get the mood right throughout our wedding day. We are huge music fans and wanted this to be just right for our wedding. Having heard Ian perform before, we knew that he was the right choice for performing at our wedding. Before the big day, we spoke to Ian about the kind of music we wanted and gave him a list of songs that we would love to hear. He used his expert knowledge of music and his back catalogue to design us a playlist that would suit our needs. It was so reassuring to know that from our few song choices that he knew exactly the type of music we wanted and designed a set list to match. On the day, Ian was extremely discrete he came forward to play and blended into the background during the ceremony. After the ceremony, he kept the guests entertained with many more songs. All of our guests commented on how amazing the music on the day was! I couldn’t recommend Ian enough for any musical event, his dedication to get it just right for you is second to none and his music is fantastic. I would definitely book him again for any future events in our lives!"
Peter & Sarah
"Ian played a set at our company family fun day. We
would highly recommend Ian and would not hesitate to use him again.
Ian is extremely professional and he arranged everything that was needed, making it completely hassle free for us.
He is a very talented musician and played a great mixture of classic and modern songs. He encouraged participation from the crowd and engaged with so many people.
We got so many compliments about Ian, on the day from our guests"
Dan, (Kims Hospital)
My husband and I would like to say Thank you for your performance at our Wedding reception.
From the very first point of contact you were extremely professional, helpful and friendly, you came very highly recommended and did not disappoint, you were prompt and polite and your playing was amazing, having everyone singing and dancing along. You performing “ Our Wedding song” which you had secretly learnt to play was totally unexpected and a fantastic surprise. You blew us away. We really cannot praise you enough.
Very best wishes"
The new Mr and Mrs Doncaster.
"We were looking for live music for our wedding in
2012 and saw Ian performing when on a night out in town (acoustic solo
artist who perform his own stuff and covers) the covers he did were really good
so we decided to contact him to play our wedding.
Ian was very accommodating with helping us pick the songs he sang and even went out his way to perform an Olly Murs number which he wouldn’t normally do, which was a nice surprise on the night for my wife.
He had people up dancing and enjoying themselves especially when he preformed a remix medley of the judges from BBC the voice, which went down really well.
From slow songs to upbeat he sure was what we was after. Highly recommend
Lewis & Caroline
“We needed an acoustic guitarist for our wedding and Ian was recommended to us by a friend. We got in touch with him and explained our requirements, which included learning a new song from scratch which I wanted to walk down the aisle to. Ian was very accommodating and even sent us videos of him performing the song so that we could check that it was what we were looking for. He performed beautifully on the day and then continued to perform a set of acoustic songs, chosen by us, as our guests mingled and drank cocktails. It was a wonderful, romantic atmosphere and so many people approached us to say how much they enjoyed Ian’s music. I cannot recommend him enough!”
"I chose Ian to play at my wedding as I am a lover of the acoustic guitar and I wanted something a little different whilst we enjoyed our wedding breakfast.
To say he is amazing at what he does is an understatement. Everybody loved his music and beautiful singing voice. People were shocked when they turned round and realised it was not a CD it was live.
Ian has a huge selection of songs and is good at all types of music including my favourite, rock.
His performance made our day even more special and I can't that him enough.
My sister loved him so much that she booked him for her special day as well.
If you enjoy live music you won't be disappointed, he was amazing.
Thank you Ian for everything.
Theresa and Brett
I hope it’s not too late to thank you for the terrific set
you played at my surprise birthday party! It really WAS a huge surprise,
and you were definitely the icing on the cake. I’m full of admiration for
the way you coped with a very difficult venue, and I loved every minute.
Actually, I would like to have been able to just sit down and enjoy it - but
you can’t really do that when so many people have been kind enough to come!
Looking forward to seeing you again at Frederic’s or anywhere else we hear about.
"I first saw Ian Ingles play at a friends birthday
party and was blown away!
So naturally when it came time to organise my mother’s surprise 70th there was only one choice - and we weren’t disappointed!
I couldn’t recommend Ian highly enough and can’t wait to go and see him play again soon.
He listened to my demands on music to cover a few decades and was so polite and friendly, nothing was too much trouble.
Get booked in before it’s too late, you won’t be disappointed!!"
