"Pat was the host for the evening at our Top of the Pops themed FMBE Awards show at Troxy. He was both professional and charming with his awards delivery, and also delighted the audience with a lively DJ set that got the crowd up on their feet and dancing. He certainly proved popular with guests of all ages, who were queuing up to have selfies taken with him. If you’re looking for an upbeat, competent and charismatic host then look no further than Mr Sharp. I can thoroughly recommend him. "

"I have booked Pat several times when we have had big events for clients and the theme has been 80s. Pat is a great guy and does a great performance, not only as a DJ but also a host for the events. I would recommend Pat for host and DJ, especially for the 80s party/event – he really brings back the good times! "
