Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for Sunday. You were amazing and all of our guests commented on how great you were! Even to put in Take 5 was a real nice touch! Sorry we did not have chance to say goodbye but we really did appreciate you coming all that way to perform at our wedding....thank you so much!!! Kind regards, Thomas & Sarah.

Dear Chris, I hadn't' have the opportunity to give you any feedback or even say thank you for the event last month! It was absolutely amazing! Everyone who attended gave me fantastic feedback and told me how much the residents enjoyed it, it was perfect!! They also love you and want you back!! Raquel Pena Aristizabal.

Just wanted to say thank you for our wedding day. The music was beautiful, everyone complimented how it really added to the atmosphere of the day. Sorry I didn't get to meet you, being pulled in many directions, but thank you again, it was lovely! Thanks, Susie, 21st April 2017 at Caroline Gardens, Peckham.

Chris has played at our garden party for the last 2 years and our residents really like him and enjoy his music. They have said the songs chosen were perfect and the sound level was not intrusive at all. Chris is always very professional, punctual and reliable. We have enjoyed his playing so much that we want him to come back for a third year running!

Chris has always received such positive feedback from the residents when he plays. He is quite unique in what he plays, and the music is varied enough to suit all tastes. As the Activities Coordinator I see a lot of musicians and can honestly say Chris is top class. He's extremely professional, and never fails to express us with his talent. The residents and myself thoroughly enjoy listening to him.

Over 150 Friends and guests enjoyed a wonderful party to celebrate our 25th anniversary. Music was provided by Chris Hooker on the clarinet and saxophone; he specialises in music from the 30's and 40's.
Friends of Bushy Park

Fabulous and yes the same format, and lots they can dance to for the second half of the evening as that is what they have raved about being able to dance. Look forward to seeing you then and could well be in touch before then.

Dear Chris Thank you for yesterday evening. The occasion was very much enjoyed by everyone. Please could you do the same again for us next year on Tuesday 13 December - 7.00 - 9.00?
 Many thanks Linda 9th December 2015

I was wondering if Chris Hooker is free to give a performance in the afternoon of December 3rd 2014, as I am presently putting together next year's programme. Myself and other members heard him at the auditions and were very impressed.

I am writing on behalf of the residents of Galsworthy Nursing Home to say thank you for coming to entertain us on 19th June 2015 we had a lovely afternoon out in the garden with a cream tea and to have the lovely music you played for us on your Saxophone and Clarinet made the afternoon really special. We had 14 residents and 3 visitors that afternoon.
On the 30th April 2015 we had a lovely afternoon with you playing the Saxophone and Clarinet on that occasion we had 20 residents and one visitor who attended the afternoon, everybody loved your style of music from the 1920's to 50's.
Looking forward to seeing you on the 23rd June 2016 weather permitting hopefully out in the garden again.
Best wishes Julie Activities Co-ordinator 12th May 2016

The residents here at Lee House always look forward to and enjoy the music played by Chris. The music is always varied and suits all tastes, there is never a spare seat when he is booked to play here, Chris has a great rapport with all the residents here and we look forward to having him back in the near future. Chris has played here three times now and I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
