Emma & Jerry Andrews

Hi Rio, just wanted to say thank you so much for making our day so special. You were so professional the whole way through, from meetings prior to the day and singing on our wedding day. We loved the fact that you easily adapted to our different music choices and were not limited by one genre. Everyone commented on how amazing you were. We would highly recommend you to any of our family or friends (we already have). Thanks again for making our day so special!

Molob and Jason

It was an absolute privilege to have Rio sing at our wedding. Rio has the ability to control the atmosphere of a venue, sing with ease and bring a sense of peace to his surroundings. Rio is adaptive, humble and a beautiful human being with a wonderful gift of singing. We highly recommend Rio.
With love,
Jason and Molob

Leah and James

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your assistance in the lead up and on the day of our wedding. During the whole process, you were so easy to deal with, and knew exactly what we wanted for our day. We had so many people comment to us on how good you were. From the moment we first met with you, your laid back nature and assurance that you would look after the music, gave us one less thing to worry about. Your music during our ceremony and canapes contributed to making our day one that we will remember forever. Thank you so much and we wish you every success in the future. We will be recommending you to friends and family! Leah and James

Annette and Adam

Thanks so much for singing at our wedding!! It was absolutely beautiful!! I could not stop smiling walking up the aisle to my husband and hearing you sing the song we had chosen so beautifully! We are so glad we found you on the internet all those months ago!:) We got so many comments on how wonderful you were and requests for your name (which we gladly provided!). You have always been so professional and easy to work with and also a lovely guy so we could not have asked for a better person to be a part of our wedding- thanks so much! We would happily recommend you to anyone holding events in the future- and we plan to do so! Thanks again Rio!!

Rio played at our wedding and his silky smooth voice was the perfect sound for my wifey walking down the aisle. His professionalism and amazing vocal and guitar skills made him the perfect choice for music at our wedding.
