Wedding at The Grand
Well, what can we say…..thank you so much for what was for us the best day of our lives.
People are still talking about you Simon, everyone loved the day, and the entertainment was second to none. You were particularly popular with the ladies (I knew you would be!), but the hilarious photos which have been generated tell it all. Our photographer even took a short video of our nephew James as Elvis….brilliant!
But you need to know (I’m sure you do) that your singing and entertaining just had everyone wanting more, so much so, we would love to know where you will be performing in the next couple of months in the Paignton/Torquay area so that we can come and see you again. Many of our guests had never visited the West Country before but now have the bug…..you have a new bunch of groupies.
We will look out for you and look forward to meeting you again, you made our evening so special and we will not forget it, as my dad put it “worth every penny”. You are a star and words cannot express our gratitude.
Hope to see you in the near future, but in the meantime, keep doing what you do best!
With Best Wishes

We knew we wanted something extra special for our evening entertainment to match the magic of our special day and in Simon Rees we found it and some!
When we spoke to Simon for the first time he was a true gentleman, a pleasure to get to know and someone to whom Katy (my wife) and I grew to be more like a friend than a wedding singer.
Simon was open to all suggestions as to what songs we wanted and even agreed to learn one of Katy and mines all time favourite songs. It was a song that Simon had never heard of but from the superb performance on our wedding night you wouldn’t have known. Simon had not only learnt the song, found a backing track but put the emotion and power into the song that was necessary and we were truly amazed.
Although we had already agreed to have Simon as our wedding singer on the strength of his songs you can play on the internet he invited us to come and watch him perform in Exeter just to make sure we had made the right decision. On arriving at the gig Simon made us feel extremely welcome and we even got to know his wonderful wife and friends. It was an absolutely brilliant night. We came away from the night absolutely buzzing. We were so excited about our wedding before this, but after seeing Simon couldn’t wait for him to be the highlight of our evening entertainment.
Simon kept in regular communication with us and when he performed at our wedding he was the best we had ever seen him (I’d even seen him a few months before at another wedding!). Simon was fantastic. Not only did he get everyone onto the dance floor, but he made everyone smile and have a great time. Weeks after the wedding people were still coming up to us to ask about Simon and comment on how brilliant he was.
Our Wedding was great before Simon performed but afterwards it was truly perfect. We couldn’t have wished for anymore.
If you’re thinking of having Simon Rees…..don’t think, just do it….you won’t regret it!!
Love to you both Graeme and Katy xx

Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you! You made our wedding!
Friday night was incredible and I only wish we’d booked you for longer! Our guests loved listening to you and seeing you perform and it made our reception feel extremely special. All of our guests are still raving about you and my new mother in law wanted to take you home! Hopefully we can come and see you perform again so we can take it all in.
Thanks again, you were truly, truly amazing.

An Evening with Simon Rees
A truly wonderful Saturday night was enjoyed by all. Simon entertained us to a fabulous evening of songs and laughter. The Club members just wanted to keep on dancing till the end because he was so good. We have already booked him for another event and would highly recommend him for social club functions.
Thank you for a really memorable night.

“Simon Rees was simply awesome…….funny, charming, sophisticated, and a truly talented and professional entertainer and singer! These are just a few of the plaudits expressed by every one of our guests when Simon played at our magical wedding.
Simon’s stage presence, enthusiasm, spirit and voice are exceptional………he sang, danced, rocked and flirted the night away with us and all our friends and family and his performance was addictive. We just did not want the evening to end…….simply the best!”
Good luck to you…….you certainly deserve it. It was a pleasure to meet you both.
Very best wishes, Chris & Suzanne x

George and I want to firstly thank you for everything this weekend, you were fantastic and definitely made our big day perfect!
Everyone had a wonderful time and seeing everyone up on the floor dancing and smiling was truly amazing and so much fun.

The Manor Hotel, Yeovil
Simon is an energetic, captivating and professional performer. Our guests could not stop watching him and the guests that he had got to volunteer for pieces of his performance.
It was important to us that people got invloved in our evening reception and had FUN and that our singer performed music of our choice. Simon certainly made sure of this. He sat with us to pick our song list and made sure plenty of our wedding party were involved in something fun! We lost count of how many people commented on how good our wedding singer was! My Uncle even tried to book him there and then for a wedding this summer!
Simon, you made our evening absolutely perfect and made sure it was a night that we and our guests will remember forever. Especially Johhny B. Goode! Thank You!!!

Your range of music is so vast it caters for everyone, and thank you Simon for learning a new song especially for us. You are a class act, and we recommend you to everyone.

Simon Rees definitely has the X factor!!
Forget the cake, flowers and the disco he really is the only thing that you need at your wedding, well worth every penny and so so much more.
If you want all of your guests involved and the dance floor full from start to finish he really is the man!! We truly couldn’t recommend anyone better to make your day even more special!
Thank you so much Simon you rock and we have recommended you to all of our friends and family who have also recommended you. You really are the original wedding singer, but much better! Thankyou for making our wedding the best!
Best Wishes to you, you really should consider the X factor we are definately team Rees, love your biggest fans Char and Paul aka Mr and Mrs Wreford (Fox & Hounds, Eggesford)
Wedding at the Berryhead Hotel, Brixham
Hi Simon, Just a note to say a massive thank you for making our wedding evening so special.
Everyone is still raving about it even now! Thanks to your talent and entertainment skills every single person there enjoyed themselves immensely. I have attached a few pics for you and hope to see you again soon….(I’m sure someone in the family will book you!)
Many thanks again. Lynne and Dave Gue xx
My wife & I wanted something different for our wedding reception.
Entertainment that involved everyone but not over the top. We approached Simon after looking at his website and once we heard a few track listings we were bowled over and we knew he would be just perfect for our wedding. Sure enough he was, Kim and I were amazed! Thank you Simon for making our night a perfect night, highly recommended. Check out Simon’s track listings and contact him now! Thanks once again.

Wedding at the Close Hotel, Tetbury, Wilts
After reading all the positive comments on Simon’s website we had really high hopes for our big day. And Simon more than exceeded our expectations. Quite simply he was brilliant.
As soon as he started the first song he got the whole room dancing, and managed to engage all ages from the small children through to the older relatives. We had a fantastic time and would strongly recommend him.
Thanks again for putting on a great show at our wedding.

A Wedding for the Owners!
Simon was absolutely fantastic! EVERYONE was up and dancing at our wedding and so many people commented on how brilliant the singer was. A few of our friends who are getting married next year have already asked for his contact details.
Everyone had a brilliant time and that was thanks to Simon making it so personal to us, our friends and families. He was a star, and perfect for weddings, family occasions and for any group of people up for having a top night! We mean that! Thank you so much for making our night so brilliant.
Have a great Christmas and new year! Kate & Will
(Carnmarth Hotel, Newquay)
Wow!, thank you for making our evening a great one!
We’d recommend anyone looking for Elvis, Frank, Neil Diamond, Tom Jones & Ricky Martin all rolled into one, to book you for their
wedding day. Everyone has commented that you were the best singer they had seen, so if you ever fancy some work in Essex, you’re in demand!
Have a great Christmas, Love Stu & Nic

Simon was absolutely fantastic right from the first meeting until the end of the night. He sang a great range of songs to suit everybody, is highly entertaining, professional and charming.
Simon managed to get everybody up and dancing (even those who were reluctant at first). The evening was excellent and Simon created the party atmosphere we wanted. Many of our guests and family have commented on how good he was and some have asked for his contact details for future events.
We would recommend Simon for any occasion and want to thank you Simon for such a perfect evening and also for learning our “first dance” song which made our wedding so special. A huge thank you to both you and Nathalie for making our wedding such a memorable occasion.
Love & best wishes Claire & Ashley
Thank you so much for making our wedding reception AWESOME!
The party absolutely rocked and every single person we have spoken to about the wedding has said what a wonderful performance you gave and what a great time they had.
You managed to get everybody up and dancing and really letting their hair down. Everybody from Alec’s 89 year old Grandma Madge, to the youngest guest (23 year old cousin) loved your performance. In particular you definitely made an impression on Grandma Madge – the personal attention that you gave her (including the peck on the cheek) made her day .. and a highlight for me was when you had her on the microphone and she said ‘if I was 50 years younger …’.
… it really was a great party. And thank you for really helping tailor it to our wishes – I certainly will never forget the ‘ushers dance off’ which I know you pulled together under very short notice.
It really was a great night – thank you so much.

Well Simon, where do we start, Anthony and I would like to thank you for the fantastic performance you gave at our Wedding on 22nd July. You kept the dance floor full all evening and entertained everyone from the five year olds to the seventy five year olds.
The children (and adults) enjoyed joining in with the musical instruments and the women certainly enjoyed the Hip Shakin,! Everyone has said how much they enjoyed the entertainment and Anthony and I both agree you were the perfect end to a perfect day.
We would recommend Simon to anyone looking for entertainment for their special occasion. He was worth every penny and both himself and his wife Nathalie are one of the nicest couples you could meet.
They were relaxed, friendly and professional and filled us with every confidence that our Evening Reception would be fantastic, which it was.
