"Gareth Hudson recently performed at my wedding reception, and he was absolutely amazing! He set such an amazing mood; my guests were relaxed and happy throughout the afternoon, and everyone was on the dance floor by the end of the night! I had so many guests compliment me on the music, one of the best wedding performers I have ever heard! Gareth also performed an acoustic cover for our first dance, and it was so beautiful that half the guests were in tears. Honestly, we had the most amazing reception and party, and it wouldn't have been what it was without Gareth. Thank you so much!!" (Megan Molloy, Wedding 2016)

"Hi Gareth. Daniel and I are getting ready to head home tomorrow. We wanted to thank you for everything you did for us on our big day! You're an incredible musician. Daniel and I reflected on the day and night and you and your band stood out. All of our guests made mention of how well you sang and that they loved the songs you chose to sing. My uncle Cecil who was the MC said you were fantastic to work with, easy going and very professional. Thank you so much for being apart of our big day. We have made lifetime memories and your music is one! Many thanks from the newlyweds, Daniel and Shannon Green". (Wedding Reception Feb, 2016)
