Giles played at an evening baby shower at the Toledo Zoo in Toledo, Ohio. This was Giles' first baby shower, and he nailed it. He arrived on time and set up quickly and quietly. He prepared a playlist that included baby inspired songs, like "Christopher Robin." He was able to flow with the evening, playing ambient music at times, and singing and playing at other times. His sound system was small but carried sound nicely in a larger room with high ceilings. Even the polar bear hung out a little longer to hear Giles play. Two thumbs up!

Giles more than met our expectations while planning for and during our Celebration of Life. He played softly during our meal and performed wonderfully during our Program. Several guests commented on the great music.

Giles was on time, willing to accommodate my musical requests, and presented himself in a friendly manner. He received lots of compliments from my guests....as well as from me.....and his music was enjoyed by everyone. I would not hesitate to hire him again. He certainly added to the evening's enjoyment.

He played acoustics for a wine tasting event and the guests were very pleased. I appreciated his "just right" sound.
