There aren't enough accolades to cover how great John was. He really made my mother's party. He was professional, polished, his music was excellent and we got many rave reviews from all of my guests. Thank you, thank you, thank you John - you made the day!! Louise

John brought the extra sparkle to our party! I would hire him again and again! He's professional, kind, interactive with guests, entertaining, a nice person, and detailed. Calls are returned promptly, and his follow-up call to be sure we were happy with everything was a pleasant surprise. The sound quality and volume were perfect, and he has a large selection of music too. Everybody was dancing and smiling, 16 - 82 years old! Thanks, John!

John was perfect for my dad's 90th birthday party. He related to the guests in a friendly, sensitive and accommodating way and played all of dad's favorite Italian tunes. He gave so much joy and pleasure to dad and brought him out of his shell. It was like the very best medicine. I am grateful for his wonderful contribution to the party, where he was a key to its success.

John was exactly the old school and interactive touch we were looking for on our big day! He was energetic, professional, had a wide song base and was more than talented with his accordion! Would highly reccomend John to anyone looking for that special touch!

John drove almost 2 hours to our event. He arrived ahead of time and even stayed an extra half because everyone was enjoying his music. He played everything from Italian favorites[it was a party for my aunt's 85th Birthday] to itsy bitsy spider for our youngest guests!! He is a such a gentleman and we were so happy that we hired him!!

John was simply a pleasure. He is not only a talented musician but also a terrific guy who knows how to read and please his audience. It's obvious that John loves his work and his enthusiasm was very infectious. He got the crowd going and it was only a few songs in before people were up dancing. There were some sing alongs as well and with a party with ages ranging from 11-85, everyone had a great time. Fantastic job John!

I hired John to play while I was getting ready for my wedding. He not only learned a traditional romanian song, but spent time talking to me about other songs I'd like and was open to doing something different than he was used to. He was very pleasant, very professional, and very communicative. Overall a pleasure to work with and would recommend him highly!
