“Our music evening at Novotel Manchester Centre was elevated by Rory. His talent and skill made for an entirely lovely evening for all of our guests, many of whom commented on how much they enjoyed the performance. I would highly recommend this act again as they were not only talented and played wonderful music but also displayed a high level of professionalism throughout the evening.”
Mark Spanton, Rory @ Novotel, Manchester, June, 2011
"Rory and his colleagues played at my husband’s 40th birthday party. This was held on a summer evening at home for around 60 people. Having live music totally transformed the night. Rory's band created a really unique atmosphere. The music was relaxed and subtle, which meant that the conversation could flow, but so enjoyable to listen to that you didn't want it to end. I would love to have the opportunity to hear him play again and I would not hesitate to engage him for another occasion."

"Rory played for our client's open-air Brazilian carnival summer barbeque. Combining swinging samba and Bossa Nova with up-tempo popular tunes and funky originals, he went down a treat with our guests, creating a festive atmosphere and keeping them drinking and dancing until the embers glowed. The standard of musicianship was excellent and the level of professionalism very high. A great success!"
Andy Hick, Rory @ Proof Bar, Manchester (Chorlton), July, 2011
“Rory put on after show performances for Manchester Camerata at the Bridgewater Hall and at the Royal Northern College of Music respectively. I am pleased to say that both performances went successfully; Rory brought a tasteful cosmopolitan selection of Brazilian tunes and acoustic Latin, blending well-known arrangements with original compositions, which created a buzzing vibe and went down very well with our audiences, keeping them at the bar all evening! Great fun and would definitely book for future events.”
