‘Bloody ell, you really can play that thing!’ Bill Wyman
“Completely and utterly brilliant! Dante set the scene and added to the atmosphere of this old, quirky and historical setting we had for our son and daughter-in-law's wedding in June 2017. From the minute we booked him, Dante was reassuringly professional and did everything he could to make the day the success it was. His performance goes beyond his clear talent – his charm and wit merely added to the overall enjoyment felt by all our guests. They truly did not stop talking about how fabulous he was. Different costumes, different instruments all kept the interest from beginning to end. Truly Dante we can not thank you enough....” S.B., Yorkshire
‘Hired Dante for our wedding at Yaxley Hall. He is unique; and a charismatic and talented musician, providing informal entertainment for our guests and always attentive to the requirements and sensitivities of his audience. If you're looking for something different, to keep your guests talking long after the event, Dante's the man.’ R.M., Suffolk.
