Help ;-)
After a busy weekend singing in Wales it was lovely to sit and watch a live band and enjoy a few drinks with my family and friends in my hometown of Culcheth, Cheshire.
Singing this evening in North Wales. Thank you to Mike and Helen Suckley for inviting me as your wedding singer. One more set to go! Lovely crowd. Hope you have a great honeymoon!
Thank you Colin for asking me back as your summer party singer in, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire. What a lovely afternoon and we got the weather we wanted! Such lovely guests and thank you for the excellent BBQ! Hope to see you again soon.

A big congratulations to Steph and James on their marriage in Darwen, Lancashire on Saturday. Whitehall Hotel, is a great wedding venue and perfect for a singer like me. Really enjoyed myself. Thanks for the kind words too!
I just wanted to say a quick thank you for coming and performing on Saturday at our wedding.
You definitely made the evening for us and we had so many people complimenting you on such a great job.
Everyone had lots of fun and it wouldn't have been the same without you so thank you so much.
Steph & James"
Neil is a full time singer for hire based in Cheshire, North West
I was booked as a surprise singer at a private party near Liverpool last night for just 8 guests. What a lovely evening. Beautiful house with 4 couples. I think this was officially my smallest audience! Such great people who know how to have fun. Really enjoyed myself and thank you Jackie and Jim for the very generous tip! Happy birthday Alan :-)
Went to the audiologist yesterday in Manchester to have ear impressions taken. These are now being sent off to create custom in ear monitors for my Shure earphones so I can hear better on stage. Wasn't expecting it, but it was quite painful! It will be about 4 weeks before I get them back. I will post a pic when they arrive.
In ear monitors are a modern version of floor wedges with the advantage of protecting your ears from the loud music and hearing every detail for pitch and intonation. Really important for a singer.

As a full-time wedding singer I feel it's really important to have good equipment that can take the demands of gigging. I constantly update my PA system to ensure the best sound when providing wedding entertainment across the North West. I have gone with Sennheiser's digital microphone using their excellent 945 capsule for warmth and clarity. That combined with my new Dynacord CMS 600 mixer, FBT Versus line array speakers and MacBook Pro, I have an excellent PA system worth over £7000. I must stop now though!

Another great afternoon singing yesterday for my lovely senior citizens in Coventry, West Midlands. I think this was my 5th or 6th visit to them over the last couple of years and I have to say they are the most wonderful group of people. I love performing for them and they love the swing music. So appreciative. Can't wait for December when I'm back!
A text off 93 year old Naomi after I left:
"Thank u Neil for another wonderful afternoon there is no doubt you are MAGIC and we all love you. Can't wait for the next time Enjoy Agnes and thank you again x Naomi"
It was an honour to be your wedding singer in Lancashire this spring. Thank you Hilary and Nick for such kind words!
"Neil - we just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our wedding day so special. You have an amazing voice and were absolutely the perfect accompaniment for our two hour cocktail party prior to our wedding breakfast. All our guests loved you and you kept everyone thoroughly entertained. From initially looking at your website to then speaking to you - you were a joy to deal with. So professional with a warm, friendly manner. I felt like I was booking a friend & I mean that most sincerely. I couldn't imagine having anyone else there & it was magical to have you sing us down the aisle immediately after our wedding ceremony - it well & truly got the party started. You are a wonderful guy and we wish you continued success. If anyone reading this is considering booking Neil, then don't hesitate. He is an amazing talent and will enhance your event. Thank you once again from the bottom of our hearts. Love & Best Wishes, Hilary & Nick (AKA Mr & Mrs Duxbury) xxx Astley Bank Hotel, Darwen. 7th April 2017."
