BBG Testimonials


Nigel has had many kind comments and thanks from the people he has performed to and continues to do so. On one occasion the very kind owner of a Restaurant in Sleaford gave to Nigel one of the guitars that he plays to this day as a way of saying thank you, which personally makes the guitar to Nigel, priceless.

Below is an extract from a review in Today Lincolnshire for Reuben's Restaurant where Nigel played on many occasions;

"Reuben's has very much a 'bistro' feel. The intimacy of the place is enhanced by the subtle classical guitar playing of Nigel Truman, who, even though he was playing immediately behind our table never became overbearing and actually added to the whole experience. Add in incredibly professional and helpful waiting staff and Karen and Derek have a restaurant to be proud of."


A selection of the feedback Nigel has received from recent customers:

"Nigel, A huge thank you to you for playing at our wedding at Hemswell Court. The music was just perfect and made the ceremony so much more intimate. On hearing you play as I was about to walk down the aisle, I filled up with tears! Your playing during the drinks reception was also amazing. Everyone commented on how beautiful it was, and helped to set the tone for the rest of the day. Thanks again, we would certainly recommend you to anyone."

Lianne & Steve

"Nigel, I would just like to say a big thank you for the wonderful music you played at my daughters wedding at Hemswell Court on the 10th April. It set the scene for the whole day. Many of our guests commented on the quality of the music. Once again thank you."

Pat & Sue Neary

"We asked Nigel to play classical guitar during our wedding ceremony, leaving the choice of wedding music up to him, and it was wonderful, both professional and artistic It added to the emotion of the day and many of the guests commented on how lovely it was and how it provided an extra dimension to the usual hymns. We would definitely recommend him."

Carolyne & Owen McHugh

"Nigel played at our wedding during the signing of the register and definitely added to the memorable service. Nigel chose the songs himself and the choice was perfect, mixing both classic and modern music. Many guests commented on how great it was, one person even had a tear in their eye during the service. We would definitely recommend Nigel for both wedding music and other functions."

"Dear Nigel, we just wanted to drop you a quick line to say how wonderful you were on Saturday at our wedding at The Olde Barn in Marston. I'm really sorry I did not get chance to speak to you but your background wedding music really made our day special.So many of our friends & family commented on the wonderful atmosphere you created and the fantastic classical guitar music you played... a few said that they just about stopped themselves from singing the chorus to Minnie Ripperton whilst we were signing the register. Everyone was also very impressed with the length of time you played for. Brilliant - thank you so very much."
