We were looking for a live Jazz / Soul performer for my birthday party June 09, checking out all the available musicians and stumbled across Catherine. We listened to a few of her tracks and there was no doubt this was the performer for my party! Catherine's voice is very soulful but yet different she made every track her own and looked stunning on stage where she played the guitar beautifully which added to the ambiance of the evening. The guests took a warming to Catherine's personality and charms and Catherine really engaged with my guests, once the dinner was over the guests started a sing-a-long with Catherine, they sang on stage with her and they all had a real ball! I would definitely recommend Catherine for any occasion be it birthdays, engagements or corporate events. My party was the talk of the town and people still comment on how much they enjoyed Catherine's performances. So what 3 things can I say to sum up Catherine??? Fab Singer... Great Personality... and Absolute Stunner... Regards, Anwar Razvi "

""Thank you Catherine for playing on our special day, you are a real star with such a great voice! Everybody was commenting on how great you were and asking where we found you? Learning that special song for us was magical and has left us with some great memories! Thanks! Si and Katie.""

"Thank you so much Catherine for performing at our wedding. You made the evening! You got everyone of all ages up on the dance floor. You judged your audience and the tone of the evening perfectly. We were so impressed that you even learnt 2 special songs for us that weren't on your repertoire list. Great for our special day. Thank you"

"Catherine you are an acoustic Diva! You arrived at our party and immediately everyone was mesmerised by your presence and fabulous repertoire. This was a private family gathering of all age groups and there was something for every one. Most poigniant was the opening song which holds special meaning for us and played on the heart strings! Wonderful!! You made our party such a memorable occasion for everyone and we couldn't have been more delighted if Alicia Keys or Stevie Nicks had turned up! Your album is fab and we have been listening to it and looking back at the special memory.Many thanks and much love from your new fan club in Manchester. Brilliant! "

Hi Catherine
Just wanted to thank you once again for your fabulous performance on Saturday.
It made the party even more special and was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.

I'm asking for a tambourine for my birthday!

Take care
