’We thought Santino was fantastic, and did a brilliant job. Everyone really enjoyed
it… I am a wedding photographer and I will defo be recommending Santino’. Claire
Johnson, Private Party.
’Santino came to entertain us on a couple of evenings. His repertoire is varied,
he has a great singing voice and our members were impressed with his renderings of
songs from Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Elvis Presley etc, ec. Santino, also played
some light classical guitar music. All in all, a very nice, presentable young man
who was courteous, friendly and adaptable to our needs. I do not hesitate to recommend
him for whatever event you have in mind’. Chairman of Group 88, a social group for
the over 50s.
’Santino is an excellent singer and versatile performer. A valuable asset to any
event. Plus he’s a great guy to work with. Thoroughly recommended’. Dave Langton,
Tiger Entertainment UK.
’Both Santino and Pauline sang beautifully at my Father & Mother’s funerals. The
words and music were most appropriate for the celebration of both their lives and
meant so much to myself, my brothers and all of our family and friends. Santino obviously
put a great deal of thought into choosing the words of the songs / hymns which fully
encompassed everything that the family wanted to say in our final farewell to our
beloved parents / grandparents’. Paul Cosgrave, Kent.
“A very big thank you Santino for last night. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and the
customers who were here last night were really impressed. We would definitely like
to book you again. I'll be in touch.” Maria, Kent.
“Santino was a fantastic addition to our wedding day. He was so professional and
always reliable. Our guests couldn't praise him enough and said what an amazing voice
he had. He made our day even more perfect and sung with such charm. Can't wait to
hear him singing again, and would recommend him to anyone.” Kayleigh and Dean, Wedding
Care Homes & Day Centres

Oatlands Care Home, Bromley, Kent.
’The performance was such a meaningful interaction and it’s great to see Mum smiling
when she heard the music’. Son of resident Edna of Greenhill Mission Care Nursing
Home, Bromley, Kent.
’Santino has done some wonderful work at Greenhill providing music therapy sessions
for small groups as well as one-to-one with our bed-bound residents. Santino has
a broad repertoire of lovely songs which appeals to a wide range of people. It is
such a pleasure to see faces come to life when he strikes up a favourite tune’. Tina
Wood, Activities Coordinator, Greenhill Care Home.
’Santino had a great voice and played a variety of up tempo songs and ballads. It
was great to see residents swaying in their seats and enjoying themselves’. Ashcroft

again”. Jane, Bexley.
Sonny & the Harp and B.B. Slim’s Band
“Sonny & the Harp played at our charity fundraiser in Bromley last year. They were
professional, punctual and provided a great atmosphere and superb music throughout

to booking them again in the near future.” Andrew Truzzi, Bromley.
“Sonny & the Harp you were brilliant. Will book you again soon.” Tim, Surrey.

back next year.” Michelle Le Varne.

Anniversary. My husband was thrilled with your performance and thanks for playing
all of his favourite songs. Was great having live music we could dance to. Hope to
have you back soon.” Barabara Morris, Kent.
“B.B. Slim’s what a wonderful evening. I saw you perform at the Foxgrove Club last
Saturday and I have to say it was one of the best evenings I’ve had in a long time.
It was such a fun, relaxed and enjoyable night. I’m going to recommend you to all
my friends and family. I’m already looking forward to hearing you play here again.”
Katherine O’Shea, Beckenham.
“Cheers B.B. Slim’s. That was really fab. Thanks for persevering despite the rain.
I had many great comments about you all, so will rope you in again next time.” Phillip,
’People that stood out were Santino Fabbricatore’s ’Kenickie’, Dom Cade’s ’Doody’,
Juliet Hogarth’s ’Marty’ and Alissa Mear’s ’Jan’. All four threw themselves into
the characters with bundles of energy and enthusiasm. The key to good acting is what
you do on stage when the focus isn’t actually on you. Too many amateurs (and some
professionals it may be said) stop acting when they do not have any lines and quickly
slip out of character. These four kept in character throughout and gave convincing
and watchable performances’. Sardines Magazine Review.
’Santino led a Gospel choir during our wedding ceremony in May 2013. The professionalism
of all involved was second to none as they accompanied our guests whilst arriving
and added that unique quality to our wedding ceremony. Their performances during
the signing of the register were breath taking and rather than just having the usual
church wedding we had something unique in our wedding that really set it apart and
everyone remembers’. Monica and William Devereux, Wedding in Kent.
’Santino shows a remarkable dedication to his music groups. For four years he volunteered
his time and travel and great music skills whilst he led the London Youth Gospel
Choir (LYGC) as it was growing. Through the workshops LYGC ran he has worked with
thousands of school children, adults and groups with various special needs and handled
them all with his usual grace, care and professionalism which is second to none.
His passion for music and for people enjoying it is matched by his keenness to improve
and challenge himself. LYGC will be glad to have Santino continue as a visiting
MD and will look forward to any collaboration opportunities with his fantastic new
choirs!’. Naveen Arles - Artistic Director, London Youth Gospel Choir & Musical Director,
Choir With No Name.
’Santino Fabbricatore and Nav Arles led on our Peace Assemblies for primary and secondary
schools in Islington, including the Pupil Referral Units, in September 2012 and 2013
and therein delivered music sessions that really captured the children’s imagination.
Santino and Nav engaged the pupils in an energetic and fun way whilst exploring
various, and sometimes serious, themes around Peace. We highly recommend this work’.
