Tom was amazing! He is extremely talented and passionate... he even took the time to learn our favorite song. He set the mood perfectly for a proposal and surprise engagement party. He was such a pleasure to work with all around. I highly recommend him as a musician, and I will definitely reach out to him again in the future.
