Testimonials

We cannot recommend Shaun Preston highly enough!
He was the first thing to do with the wedding we knew we had to have, and we booked him mere days after our engagement!
He is the most humble, down to earth and INSANELY talented young man.
He was so great to work with, correspondence was easy and he was always open to suggestions about what we wanted. He learnt 2 songs for our ceremony which turned out absolutely stunning, he should definitely keep them on his song list! Plus he put up with/dealt with my severely bad indecisiveness while trying to choose songs, and helped with suggestions where he could.
We are avid Shaun supporters and will be at as many shows as possible when he returns to NZ in October, it is a guaranteed sensational night out with such a fantastic blend of old and new music, some of which we enjoy his versions more than the originals!
We both think Shaun is going to have a lifetime of success and only continue to get better. One day when he is filling stadiums like Elton John we will be able to say he performed with just as much enthusiasm and energy at our wedding for 60 people!

Shaun, we cannot thank you enough for making our day on 21/3/14 so wonderful, our ceremony was so lovely out in the sunshine with you and your piano on the lawn! We really wanted fantastic live entertainment and everyone up dancing and you made that happen with 200% energy and enthusiasm! So many people have told us they had so much fun and the best time, plus “Who was that guy on the piano he was amazing!? Where did you find him?!”

We really look forward to following you in your future endeavours and watching your success grow, you deserve everything that comes your way!

“Hi Shaun

We just wanted to pass on a huge thanks for all your efforts at our wedding. One of the first things we wanted to organise for our wedding was great live music! We loved the effort you put into learning our songs for the ceremony, entertaining our guests while we were away with photos and then the way you had everyone on the dance floor by the end was perfect. We couldn’t have asked for more. I think every guest has since commented to us how good you were.
We can’t thank you enough for playing as long as you did, you were superb and it made for a very special day.

Thanks again, and look forward to hearing you again soon.

Dear Shaun,

On behalf of the Organising Committee may I say thank you for contributing to a very successful and enjoyable Conference Dinner at the New Zealand Society for Oncology conference held at the James Cook, Wellington recently.

The delegates enjoyed your music immensely and we greatly appreciate you being able to be flexible with timings and being open to carrying your piano up the stairs!

Thank you for providing them with a fabulous night’s entertainment!

We look forward to working with you again soon.

Dear Shaun,
I would like to thank you for making my 50th birthday celebration one never to forget, I, along with the rest of my guests could not believe the way you presented yourself and the way you performed your songs in the most professional way.When I was looking for entertainment for my party, and you were recommended, I was so thrilled when I heard you perfom. I have no hesitation in recommending you for any sort of party or entertainment. We were very impressed with your selection of music and the way you kept everyone up dancing. Shaun I am so pleased to have chosen you for my entertainment and wish you well in the future.
Once again, many thanks.

This will be the 5th year running that we have had Shaun entertain at our Staff Christmas function.
We keep asking him back because each year he just gets better. Shaun always manages to get people up on the dance floor and keep them there – simply from the choice and range of the music that he sings.
He is always a true professional whose enthusiasm for entertaining people shines through with every performance.

We first heard Shaun singing and playing while having a meal at the Intercontinental Hotel in Wellington. He impressed us immediately and we asked him to sing and play at our wedding. We again asked Shaun to entertain our guests at a special birthday celebration. On both occasions we had many people comment to us about what a wonderful entertainer Shaun is.
Shaun has an amazingly large repertoire of easy listening music which he sings and plays from memory. His voice and piano playing are of the highest quality and we have found him to be very friendly, accommodating and excellent to deal with. We have no hesitiation in recommending Shaun. You will not be disappointed!

Hi Shaun!

Just wanted to pass on a BIG thank you for entertaining at our wedding on Saturday. We had so many guests tell us that you were one of the best entertainers they’d ever heard, (not to mention a few of our young female cousins keen to find out your ph number!) It’s not often you get a wedding where every single person gets up and dances – so I’m so glad we made an investment in you, as it really made the night what it was :o)

Thanks mate! See you around !

For our big day we wanted a musician that was a class act. We wanted someone professional and entertaining who could read a crowd. Someone who could be formal with their attitude and presentation and then relaxed and happy and get us all in the mood for a great night of entertainment and dancing. Shaun read our wedding crowd absolutely, positively perfectly. We had the BEST time a wedding party could possibly have. Shaun is a real entertainer, a mover and a shaker and he was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone that night. For Steve and I our wedding would not have been so memorable without Shaun there. We were loyal groupies of Shaun’s before the wedding, we are now firm loyal friends as well! We highly recommend Shaun to all prospective clients, you will not find a better musician and entertainer out there.

Hi Shaun,

Just wanted to send you a huge thank you for your outstanding performance at our wedding. People are still talking about how great it was to have you there ☺

Felicity and I both agree that you really made the night such a fun time and definitely an event to remember.

I especially wanted to thank you for the superb singing of Groovy Kind of Love for our first dance it was absolutely wonderful.

We will be sure to recommend you to anybody needing such a fantastic entertainer, and I know that some people have already got your card from the evening.

We hope that you coped with your 6 performances in a row you mentioned ☺

Take care, and we will hopefully see you again soon.

Hi Shaun

Recently I became involved in trying to secure Shaun’s services for the annual Festival of the Lights concerts here at Pukekura Park, New Plymouth.

I made committments to those putting up the money that Shaun would not disappoint, and to Shaun, that the New Plymouth public would appreciate talent. I was overwhelmed on both counts. Shaun not only performed, he worked the audience to a frenzy from a carefully thought out set list, culminating with a credenza featuring “backwards from under the piano playing”, Mozart style, to end “Crocodile Rock”. The audience after two and a half hours still wanted more.

Since then, my phone has rung hot, I have received emails galore and even notes in the mail thanking and encouraging me to try and secure Shaun for an even larger gig.

The voice, the piano playing, where is the end to where this talent will go!

To mix the metaphor’s, the sky’s the limit for this young man with his feet firmly planted on the ground!
