Writing this review is one of the easiest things I've ever done. I only wish there was a higher rating than 5 stars. Tavi, simply put, was amazing from start to finish. His playing is nuanced and passion filled. Our guests were essentially treated to a world class concert the moment they arrived at the church. He was extremely accommodating and sensitive to every need and request we made, from the moment we met over the phone and during our face to face. He is patient, personable and an absolute pleasure to work with. For anyone considering hiring Tavi for an event, my whole hearted advice is, don't hesitate, book him now and rest assured you are in great hands!
