PERFECT. We couldn't be more pleased. William Florian is professional and easy to work with, so there was never any problem at all. He has a GREAT voice, a warm personality, and the knack of making connections with his audience. His music "makes your heart sing"--uplifting, joyful and fun. Everyone agreed that his performance was simply wonderful. We would recommend him without reservation.

William is awesome! He is a consummate professional, a gifted performer, and one of the nicest people I've ever met. For our event, he arrived early despite traveling more than 2 hours. After setting up, he started playing right on time and proceeded to captivate the guests with his great songs, flawless guitar and perfect voice. He did everything we asked and more. All of the guests are looking forward to listening to his CDs and seeing him again live. Two huge thumbs up!

Thanks to William Florian for making my husband Bill's 50th birthday on 10-10-10 a once in a lifetime occasion. As a longtime John Denver fan, Bill really enjoyed singing along to Country Roads and and other Denver songs. And everyone loved the 60's music, young and old alike. It was quite exciting to have a professional musician of William's caliber in our own backyard. He is funny and charming and really added something special to the day. I highly recommend him for all occasions for people of any age.

William gave a WONDERFUL performance at our company's annual Open House for our customers. All who attended enjoyed the music, many of them going out of their way to comment about how lovely he was. The music was delightful, a perfect soft mix of oldies and easy-listening songs with his acoustic guitar. But despite his rare talent, William was professional, kind, helpful, witty, and funny, engaging the crowd at every opportunity. During his breaks, he played a great arrangement of other music for our guest to enjoy. I highly recommend this performer for your event. Thank you so much, William! We look forward to having you back at our next company event!

William Florian performed at Aegis on Saturday, 10-3-09. He was warmly welcomed by our residents who came with interest and left with much enjoyment. They were inspired by his songs and his charisma as he told about each song's history and related trivia. The residents were extremely generous with applause and appreciation. They will certainly welcome him back again, anytime. Dolores Lucena, Aegis Activities
