CJ entertained our group of elderly members at our anniversary party. He sang songs they all knew, and they joined in, tapping their feet and clapping their hands. They loved him – he knew what sort of music they would enjoy and delivered beautifully.

CJ was a dream to work with; with so much else to do with the party organising I had minimal contact with him, bless him but he handled it like a dream. Didn't get lost (like most of the guests); set himself up; and judged the day perfectly in terms of music and volume. I'd even thrown him a bit of a curveball request but he did it! Very happy and he was great with the guests too.

We very much enjoyed having CJ play at my 40th birthday. He called me a few days before the party to discuss the set up and my particular wishes. He kept me informed when he was a little late due to an accident on the [url hidden] was obviously out of his control. He played the piano & sung brilliantly and was friendly and charismatic and took requests. He had the whole party singing a rousing rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody (complete with a lyric sheet hand out for all) which was a highlight of a lovely day. Would definitely book again.

This was a staff farewell do, and C J's music transformed the party. He was an absolute hit. People were dancing, singing along, and he very generously allowed a couple of our clients to use his equipment to perform their own tribute. C J offers a very friendly, personal service which was very much appreciated. I will definitely book him again.

C J Barton brought our venue alive, one of the best live music acts we've had. There was something for everybody in his set, and the audience didn't want to let him finish.

CJ played at my birthday party and was brilliant! The accompaniment to Afternoon Tea was lovely; but the singalong that followed was the highlight of the day. We chose the playlist together, which had everything from Jerusalem to Wonderwall. The Perfect Day finale was something I’ll never forget.

Thanks for making the music at my party yesterday. The sets were great and well chosen for this 65+ audience and the singalong, just the right length, was a great hit. Especial thanks for your flexibility, the moving around to different locations and impromptu contributions to our various entertainments as well as allowing your keyboard to be used by family musicians.
