Lyndsey

Chose Steve to play at my 50th Birthday party last night. I certainly made the right choice. He was brilliant! He even played all the music from his palylists that I had chosen. Made my evening so special and memorable. Throughout the evening guests were saying 'Where did you find him?! He is brilliant'
Thank you Steve for a fantastic night.

Steve Young, highly recommended Bands to hire 08/08/2015
Steve Young played at our wedding at the Vale Resort in South Wales and we just wanted to feedback and say a huge huge thank you. They arrived on time, were friendly, played brilliantly and were absolutely fantastic with the many children we had at the wedding, letting them join them at the front and play the tambourine. So so many people came up to us and said how fantastic you and your partner were and how great it was to have a live band (well duo) at the wedding. It didn't matter or make any difference at all that there was "only" two of you rather than a full band as you sounded amazing, the music was fantastic and people either enjoyed listening to you, or singing along or/and dancing away. I (the bride!) certainly loved dancing to all the songs you played and you just helped to create the exact atmosphere we wanted; it was such a brilliant, fun atmosphere for our wedding reception and we genuinely cannot thank you enough. We would definitely recommend you to others. Also, thank you for playing our first dance Everlong by the Foo Fighters so well. I am a huge Foo Fighters and Dave Grohl fan and it was amazing to have our first dance played live and so fantastically! Thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts for helping to make our wedding reception so amazing, fun and memorable for us and all our guests. We really are truly grateful as you played a huge part in this and with just a DJ I do no think our reception would have been anywhere near as good. We wish you much luck and best wishes for the future, you truly deserve it. Thank you once again for everything.

Steve Young He was fantastic, we couldn't have asked for a nicer person. He was professional and played to our guests. He played our requests only minutes after asking for them. We were very impressed that he learnt an unusual song for our first dance. Out guests all said how wonderful he was. We also had a brilliant selfie with him while he was singing. There is no doubt in our mind that if we needed entertainment again we would book Steve.

Steve Young We're very happy with the act. He was very professional arrival was on time he was very accommodating as we were running a little behind on timings but we worked together to make sure he was on at the time we agreed. All the guests at the ball commented on how good he was, they felt he was very versatile and were impressed that he did requests. We will have no hesitation in booking him again for another one of our functions in the future.

Steve Young, highly recommended Bands to hire 06/09/2014
Steve Young was absolutely fantastic! We could not have chosen a better artist to perform at our wedding reception, really talented guy with an amazing voice. It must be said that Steve was professional in every way and a thoroughly nice chap. Music range was fab with something to suit all of our guests and they all loved it! We chose some of the songs from the playlist which was a nice touch as we picked some of our personal favourites! Steve performed a song for our first dance which was unusual and not off the list and sounded amazing, we will never forget that dance! If you are considering booking then just go for it you will not be disappointed, brilliant agency and in particular a brilliant artist. Thank you for making our evening even more wonderful!

From my initial booking I was relaxed that everything would be taken care of. Steve contacted me 2 weeks prior to the wedding, asked what our first dance was and went off and learnt it (Johnny Cash 'Thing called love')!On the day, he introduced himself, set up and played the crowd perfectly. I was worried that people wouldn't dance as Steve initially allowed guests to mingle and chat, then, it was like he flicked a switch, as all of a sudden every single guest was bopping away and singing on the dance floor right up to 1am!!Steve, I'm sorry that we broke your tambourine, but as you said, it was a casualty of a great night! I've had nothing but compliments from all our friends and family [url hidden] to Steve and everyone at Alive. I would have no hesitation in recommending Alive or Steve Young in the future, if your thinking about it, just do it, you wont regret it (as long as Steve has got a new tambourine of course)!

Steve Young"Steve Young did exactly what he promised to do. As a result we received many comments about how good he was and what a novel idea for an acoustic guitarist to play during our wedding breakfast. He was a lovely man and packed the set with favourites. Alive Network (esp. Clare Kimble) were brilliant and very helpful.I am a very happy customer. "

Steve Young"Steve Young was fantastic. He really enjoyed playing and this showed in his commitment to run a little longer on the first set. If it hadn't been for the snow coming in he would have stayed over his time. He really understood my husband and I and the mood of our guests and made our evening a memorable time. Our guests all raved about Steve even 3 weeks after the [url hidden] you Steve for being brilliant and to Clare for assisting!"

Steve Young"Steve Young - amazing, an absolute legend!I didn't want him to leave, he was so good and if anyone asks me re. singers, he will be the 1st person I recommend. Absolutely outstanding!I asked Steve if he knew 'Love of the Common People' by Paul Young, and he didn't but promised me he'd try and learn it in time (he had 2 weeks), that song has a lot of meaning for my husband as it reminds him of his mum that died 8 years ago and I wanted something extra for him to ensure his mum wasn't forgotten about on his special [url hidden] me tell you, Steve pulled it off, my new husband was in tears but that was down to Steve's emotive interpretation. Steve is an absolute legend and he made that moment so utterly [url hidden] at Alive Network was an absolute star, we had 2 changes of venues, we changed the times, and nothing was too much trouble for her.

Steve Young "Dear Gemma,
We were so, so happy with Steve, he was very professional and on time, he was very friendly and relaxed. He played all our requests, his choice of music was perfect, we had lovely weather so he played both sets outside including our first dance (his idea)!
The atmosphere he created was perfect and our guests kept asking him to play one more song! Everyone commented on how good he was and asked where we found him. I hope he will be booked by one of our friends or family in the future.
We just couldn't be happier about his performance and are so, so glad we booked him.
Thank you."
