"The music was perfect!! Very talented musician. All requests played and these were last minute and the encouragement to get all on the dance floor by Phil for Summer of 69 was truly memory making and soo much appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble for Phil and we would certainly and are recommending him to others. From booking to the night smooth no hiccups completely surpassed our expectations. Many thanks Phil."

"We Hired Phil's band for our wedding reception on August 3rd this year through Sam Lewis. The communication was great between Sam and Phil. Phil sent us a huge list of songs for us to choose from with all kinds of different songs from old to new. Phil was great and even learn’t our first dance song and he certainly didn't disappoint. He also sang the song I chose to dance with my Dad too which was absolutely amazing. We also managed to see Phil perform one evening before the wedding which definitely helped us with knowing we'd made the right choice for our evening. Phil has a great voice. On the evening everyone was up & dancing and everyone kept asking me where we had found Phil's band. He really got the crowd going and it was such a great night and will always be memorable to us. We loved every moment and I can't thank Phil and his band enough. Phil is such a lovely person and we can't recommend him enough." (Wedding, Hertfordshire)

"As soon as we saw Phil's showreel we knew he was the person we wanted to play at our wedding. From the first moment I messaged Phil asking his availability he was just so polite and accommodating. Anything I asked for Phil made sure he would fit that into his set. The price was amazing! We had Phil from 12-7 and the whole way through he was just fantastic. The variety of songs he played was perfect for all ages at our wedding. He was great with our kids and even come to set up and hour early and came over to congratulate us. Phil is just such a lovely guy and has an amazing/diverse voice and we received so many compliments from our guests. We cannot thank Phil enough for being as lovely and good as he is. Will definitely be recommending him to our friends when they need a musician." (Wedding, Kent)

"From the first contact I made with Phil to arrange my Dad’s funeral service it was a pleasure, as Phil was so very professional, caring and sympathetic. Phil provided my Dad with the best ‘Goodbye’ ever. From the requiem service In the Church to the reception Phil was excellent - best vocals and guitar playing, in very sad circumstances. Everyone commented on how well the day had gone and this was due to Phil’s skills as a musician and performer, as well as being very charming and friendly (great personality). Phil understood the type of celebration I wanted and put together an absolutely wonderful day from start to finish, something special to remember Dad and his life. I cannot recommend Phil highly enough, so don’t look anywhere else as I know Phil is the best you will get for whatever event you are planning…well done Phil and thank you." (Funeral, Surrey)

“My wife and I wanted a singer/acoustic guitarist for a joint “significant birthday" party. Having invested a fair amount to get the right location, we wanted the event to feel as special as possible. We are very glad we chose Phil to perform for us. Firstly, he was very customer focused and professional with all the preparatory details which was highly reassuring. Secondly, he has a very warm and friendly personality which put our guests at their ease. Thirdly, in terms of his performance, I can do no better than to quote from one of my guests – ‘I couldn’t believe just how good he was!’ ”

“I recently celebrated my 50th birthday weekend with a group of family and friends and I wanted live music for the first night, as a way of gathering everyone together. I had heard good reviews of Phil Short Acoustic, and through personal recommendation from a trusted friend, so I went ahead and booked him. I absolutely could not have made a better choice! Phil was more than accommodating with the song choices I had, and had some fantastic suggestions of his own. He was so friendly and professional throughout my booking. On the evening of the event he had set everything up for the performance without any intrusion on either myself or guests. His performance was amazing! He played a fantastic selection, with some brilliant surprises, and encouraged people to sing along and even took requests. He absolutely brought everyone together and started the weekend celebrations on a fantastic high. I cannot recommend Phil highly enough – book him, you will not be disappointed!”
