Client Testamonials:

Key103 Jingle Ball-
Maria is a superstar in the making and we are so proud to have her perform at our jingle ball and cash for kids events each year. We get no end of fabulous comments from clients year after year.

One to watch!

Trevor-Golf Club
Wow! What a show, this young lady is destined for bigger things.
Gay Pride 2012
The event was great and Maria was by far the highlight of our day! She has an absolutely fantastic voice and I don't think I've ever seen such a huge crowd before.
Alex-Sywel Aerodrome Air Expo
Maria was amazing!!!!!! We certainly want her back next year. Very kind, listened to exactly what you wanted and delivered a cracking performance. True Brilliance. All our customers had a great evening and really liked her range and choices of songs. Thanks Alex 
Jennifer- Key103

Having seen Maria perform a stunning set at our annual Jingle Ball, I recently hired Maria for a Key 103 listener party and the feedback from all guests was excellent. The selection of songs was spot on and the dance floor was packed, I wish I'd have asked for an extra 1/2 hour!!

Stephen- St Catherine's Hospice
Maria – you were superb and doubtless have a sparkling future. Many thanks for making the night go so very well. You and your group made all the difference.

Kenny and Jess Owen
At our wedding last week in Hathersage, Derbyshire, we hired Maria to play her Jazz/Blues sets in the afternoon followed by her Rock/Pop sets in the evening, accompanied by the DJ service as well. They were both absolutely fantastic and made our day so special. All of our guests have said how brilliant Maria was on the day, setting just the right mood for the pre-dinner drinks and canapés and then later after the meal for the Disco. The music / entertainment make or breaks the wedding for sure and I cannot thank you both enough for the thoroughly professional, yet friendly and accommodating service that you provided. We can’t wait to book you again in the future and would encourage anybody reading this to look no further in your search for the perfect performer for your event. All the best, Kenny and Jess Owen xxx
