Reviews of Jessica Stretton
Mr & Mrs Thomas, The Mill Barns, Alveley
We chose Jess to sing and DJ on our wedding day which was back in March and we honestly couldn’t have picked anyone better. From the very beginning, during the initial communication leading up to the wedding, Jess was so friendly and approachable and made us feel at ease by answering any questions we had about the wedding day quickly. Jess made the effort to get to know us as a couple prior to the wedding, by asking what sort of music we liked and disliked, to ensure the sets she sang and the music she played during the day was personal to us and what we loved. Jess started off the day by singing whilst I (the bride) and the bridal party walked down the aisle, this moment felt even more special because the song she sang meant so much and it was sung so beautifully. Jess also went on to sing a set during the drinks reception and also in the evening. Prior to the wedding, we explained to Jess how we wanted the drinks reception as more of a chilled out vibe and the evening do as more of a party vibe, Jess considered this when choosing which songs to sing for each set, but also gauged from our and the guests’ reaction on the day to see whether to change things up, which made it feel even more tailored to us and our special day. Throughout the day Jess interacted with us and the guests in such a welcoming and kind manner and nothing felt like too much trouble. As well as the sets Jess sung, Jess also DJ’ed in-between and throughout the night, Jess really got the party started and got the guests up and dancing! Was honestly the most perfect day. We have had so much positive feedback from our family and friends about Jess and we are so thankful to have chosen such an amazing person so sing and DJ for us on our wedding day. To top things off, Jess also gave us a CD of her singing, this was such a special and thoughtful gift to have been given, as we can listen back to some of the songs she sung during the day. Thank you so much Jess for making our day so special x

Thank you for your professionalism and top performance! The second half of your performance was a pinnacle and makes so much difference so thank you! Many thanks for helping us deliver a first class event for Rockinghorse and the afterparty you performed at was a very effective and enjoyable afternoon.Tables are already being booked in advance of next year and people are asking if our secret after party will be happening again, thanks to you! We’ll have NO hesitation in booking you again.

Recently had Jess perform for our sons naming day at the end of May and my word.... she blew everyone away. From start to finish she had everyone on their feet. We chose her singing and disco package and can’t comment enough on how fab it was. Our families have talked none stop about how she made the night one to remember. Myself and my wife found Jess a pleasure to deal with from start to end and would highly recommend her for all events.
Rita W, Harris Museum, February
What a fabulous artist to work with in the run up to her #HarrisLive performance, all paperwork completed well in advance and she promoted the event too! Amazing voice, great mix of known records and her own written songs - thoroughly great evening and I would 100% recommend her.
Lisa G, Wedding Reception, April
Jess sang at my daughter and son-in-laws wedding. She was amazing, she got everyone up dancing and carried on long into the night. She has a good catalogue of songs and padded out breaks with a disco. I would highly recommend her. Thanks for a great night Jess.
Andy C, Burtonwood Community Centre, November
I booked Jess to perform at our (Burtonwood Community Centre) charity beer festival last weekend. She contacted me leading up to the date of her performance to check our requirements which always shows an interest. A very approachable person who cannot do enough for you. Her performance was fantastic and would definitely recommend to anyone looking to book a top quality female vocalist. We are looking at booking again in 2019.
April booked Jessica for her Wedding
Personable and professional. Jess went the extra mile to make our day special- including having a backing track recorded especially as a surprise for the Groom. She had people on their feet dancing during dinner! Pitch perfect and set the tone for an amazing party. Thanks so much!
Abbie hired Jess to perform on her Wedding Day at Hornsbury Mill, Somerset
My husband and I booked Jess through Garston Entertainments to sing at our wedding at Hornsbury Mill on 5th August. We chose Jess because of her amazing voice and the bonus fact that she DJ's as well as sings! The whole experience was seamless right from the off. Jess was in regular contact with us just days after booking her, we didn't have to chase her for anything which was a weight lifted on the run up to a wedding! It was lovely to receive emails from Jess saying how she was looking forward to playing at our special day. She was able to accommodate all our song requests for the DJ set, and believe me...there were a few! When Jess arrived at the venue she was very approachable and so easy to talk to, she felt like a friend we had know for years! Jess was fantastic at getting the crowd involved and so many of our guests commented on how great the singer was. We could not have asked for a better singer to have been at our wedding and we would definitely book Jess again for other events in the future. To top it all off, we received a CD from Jess that we listened to all the way from Devon up to London Airport! We cannot thank Jess enough!
Dan at Vimto hired Jess to perform at their Corporate Christmas Party at a Holiday Inn in Leigh.
We had our works Christmas party and it took a while to find the right act that was fitting for our White Ball event. However after searching for many weeks I come across Jess’s profile. Instantly I knew she was the right act, her song selection fit our requirements and it was everything I wanted for the works event. We asked Jess to perform while people arrived and also while dinner was served, I have to be honest not much eating was consumed as Jess got everyone on the dance floor mid-way through. Which was great, it set the right atmosphere. I had a few special requests and Jess was so accommodating, even to the point of learning a new song. I have nothing but positive things to say about Jess, her vocals are amazing! Song selection on point, such a good interaction with the audience and extremely professional! I highly recommend Jess! She will be booked again in the near future!
Annette booked Jess for a New Years Eve Party
Jess was our entertainment for NYE, and wow what a night she made for us. We had suffered a bereavement and was not sure to go ahead with the evening, but after talking to to our family and Jess we did. We left everything in Jess's hands, except for asking for a couple of songs she planned the entire evening, she read the audience and kept everyone up dancing and singing all night, It didn't matter what she sang she sounded amazing and entertained us all. Jess went way above and beyond what we expected, she interacted with all of us and made us feel like we had known her for ages, but most importantly gave the impression to everyone we had known her for ages, which is quite a remarkable thing to do. The night was a success, the bells were cheered in and the fun carried on. All our guest have asked about Jess and said what a night, and she was a big contributor to this. All I can say is a BIG THANK YOU and WOW to Jess she really was pure entertainment, we could not have asked for anyone better.
Maria Sharp hired Jess to perform at her 40th Birthday Party at Bishopston County Conservative Club, Bristol
Jess performed at my 40th, she was absolutely amazing, everyone commented on how amazing she was. I would definitely highly recommend and would definitely use her again.
Lance Betts hired Jess to perform at his niece's wedding reception at Aldwark Manor Golf Club & Spa.
We were looking for a accepella singer for my niece's wedding in York, and after speaking to Dave at Garston and doing some research on Youtube. The happy couple and everyone else involved would like to say a big thank you to Jess and Garston for letting us make the right choice…PERFECT! The timing of the songs and the voice was just ideal for the setting, especially the Ellie Goulding and Sam Smith songs were a great choice. Even when we moved on to the squadron bar, Jess kept the mood going with her choice of songs with a smile and great professionalism. Once again thank you Jess, keep up the good work 10 out of 10!
