Christmas PartyReviewed on December 2, 2022From Sturbridge, MA

R.D. was great to work with. He arrived early and was set up and ready to play prior to guests arrival. His musical talent was well received by our guest and I receive many complements on my choice of entertainment for the cocktail portion of our evening. I would highly consider hiring him for the entire evening in the future!!! Thank you again R.D.!!!, for making our party a success. Kim H., Office Mgr. - G&F

FuneralReviewed on October 29, 2022From Fitchburg, MA

We were so fortunate to have Russell available for our gravesite memorial service. His musical talent made the event so special as he led us in song, but he was also very professional in advising us in choosing appropriate selections and in attending to details leading up to the date. All who attended were moved by his beautiful arrangements, accomplished guitar work and thoughtful presentation. K. Dowd

Rehearsal DinnerReviewed on June 10, 2022From Newport, RI

Russ was extremely professional and exceeded our expectations. We hired him for our rehearsal dinner and did not regret it. I would highly recommend him to anyone as our guests were raving about both his personality as well as his musical ability.
