We had James and Magda play at my 50th birthday party at which there were around 70 guests ranging from 20-75 years of age and I’m pleased to say that the duo were enjoyed by all. The range of songs performed suited both youngsters and the “silver set” accordingly with people either dancing or just enjoying sitting and listening to Magda’s mellow tones or to James’ whistling skills, i.e. in “Moves Like Jagger” by Maroon 5.
There were a few songs that I particularly wanted to be included on the night, namely Andy William’s “Too Good to be True”, Frank Sinatra’s “New York” and “Lily the Pink” by The Scaffold but none of these were in their song list and James & Magda hadn’t sung them before. However, rather than tell me they could not accommodate, they learned the requested songs especially for my birthday gig and performed them brilliantly, which was greatly appreciated.
Magda and James really do fit into any party, and I would have no hesitation booking them again or recommending them to someone else. Some performers tell you what they are going to perform and what time they will sing and for how long. Not James and Magda! They will do whatever you want and the timing is down to you and in between sets, James can look after all MP3 music through his music system! What more could anyone ask?
Brilliant night, J & M – thanks for being there,
