Karl is an amazing singer. He does such a wide range of songs and his version of Ed Sheeran's perfect is fab. He's lovely to deal with, so easy going and flexible. We had loads of people come up to us at the wedding to say how good he was. Highly recommended him.

Karl was exemplary from the moment we enquired with him. He was so approachable with what we wanted for our ceremony. Karl's voice is simply beautiful and has a great and diverse selection of songs to choose from. We had Karl at our drinks reception in the Stags Head an provided a great backdrop to the reception. Finally Karl and his band Catch 22 covered our reception in Fallon & Byrne and to say the put on a party, would be an understatement. The dancefloor never emptied at any point during the night and that testament to Karl and his band. I couldn't recommend him enough, we were delighted with him and his band. Thank you Karl.

We had Karl sing at our cermony after many postponements and he was outstanding. He was very quick to reply to emails and help out with timings of the bridal party entrance. Many of our guests thought we had a CD player on as he didn’t miss a note. Karl’s voice is absolutely amazing. I would 100% recommend Karl for any music you need for your big day.

Karl was our church singer when we got married on 15th October 2021. Karl has the most amazing voice. Soon as we stepped into the church till we left ,Karl just filled the church with his beautiful voice. Every song he sang for us was perfect. So many people commented throughout the day and after on how amazing Karl sang for us. We would highly recommend Karl to any future couples with no hesitation. Thanks again Karl for making our day so special with your beautiful voice.

I have known Karl going on 10 years and the minute I heard his voice I knew. I knew one day I'd get him to sing at my wedding. I seriously not being bias. Mine and my Husbands family still talk about karl and how amazing he is. When we spoke about what kind of vibes we wanted for the wedding he totally got it. Karl doesn't make songs sound like covers from other artists he makes them sound as they were written for him to sing. You could never and would never be disappointed with karl looking after your music for your day.

Not only is Karl lovely and professional to deal with he has the most amazing voice. He sang at our Wedding ceremony in 2019 and everyone had nothing but good things to say about his beautiful voice. We recently watched our wedding video and his voice still give me goosebumps, I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.

Having heard Karl sing many times before there was only ever going to be one singer asked to sing at our wedding and it would be him. He was incredible from start to finish at our ceremony. Very flexible and did all the songs we wanted to the highest possible standard. It’s the only time I’ve ever witnessed a round of applause in the church after a song. We can’t recommend him highly enough!
