Kellie and Patrick Lewis - Wedding - 26 Sep 2016
Wayne and I just wanted to say a huge thank you for being utterly fantastic throughout our wedding day. You were absolutely incredible before and after our ceremony, completely understanding our vision and setting the tone perfectly. During dinner, you were so unassuming, you just got on with it, no fuss, no stress, just singing beautifully and creating the laid back, chilled atmosphere we wanted.
You truly made our wedding the day it was and we can't thank you enough.
Lucy & Wayne - Wedding
Thank you so much to you and Shute playing at our wedding yesterday. It was absolutely perfect and our guests were very complimentary on you! We had a great day and evening.
Daniel - 26 May 2016
Calder was an absolute dream to work with from beginning to end. After a simple phone call to discuss times and locations for a few sets at our wedding, he literally took care of everything else. Very friendly and professional throughout, he really made everyone's day. All our guests were very complimentary and really got into his performances. Our only regret is that we didn't book him for longer! Hugely talented! Great musician! Can't thank you enough.
Dale & Ashley - Wedding
Calder played at our Wedding Reception on 26th September 2014, in probably the smallest space he's ever had to perform in. The two sets he performed for us were fantastic, even though in the confined space, he found himself surrounded by quite 'merry', middle aged women, bopping the night away! We would recommend him wholeheartedly. He did a great job, his covers are as good as the originals! Thank you.

Dean Newark - Kendrew Barracks - 11 Sep 2014
I just wanted to say how fantastic it was to have Calder McLaughlin performing at our wedding on Friday. His music during the ceremony made it feel extra special and he was brilliant before and afterwards, playing songs we had requested. He even did a bonus Maggie May at the end especially for my mum! Everyone commented on how good he was and the staff at Blackbrook house were impressed by his friendly attitude and professionalism. I highly recommend him. What a fantastic musician and lovely person.
Thank you so much.
Lucie & Dan Riley - Wedding - 29 Jul 2014
I just wanted to email you to say that Calder and his band were absolutely amazing on Saturday. All of our guests there thought he was absolutely brilliant and we would definitely recommend him to anyone. The dance floor was packed all night and if we ever had a big party again we would definitely ask him to come back.
Georgie Parker - 16 Jun 2014
I must admit I don't usually leave as much feedback as I should, however, I felt I had to on this occasion. I wanted to make people aware that Calder played at our wedding reception on and he was amazing. Everyone commented on how great he was, he was very professional and a proper gentleman. I would recommend him all day long, you won't be disappointed.
Dan & Vic - Wedding - 19 Sep 2013
Please could you pass on Neil and my massive thank you to Calder for the beautiful music he played at our drinks reception. I can’t tell you how perfect it was, Calder’s voice was fabulous I could have listened to him play for hours and he did an amazing job of singing all my favourite songs that I’d requested. I just wanted to pass on our thanks and feedback on how fantastic he was.
Abbi & Neil - Wedding - 21 Aug 2013
If you haven't seen him already, you're in for a treat. Calder oozes talent and never fails to entertain. His play list of classics, old and new, has something for everyone... and what a voice!
