“We booked Alfred on the Whacked’s recommendation and we were really pleased that they suggested him. The activation that we’d booked him to MC didn’t quite work out as planned, but he improvised and got the crowds going, they loved him. He was a true professional and a pleasure to work with, we’ll definitely be booking him again.”
