Brooks was amazing. I have received hundreds of compliments on choosing him. One of guests is a guitar player enthusiast and was very impressed with him (which says a lot in my book.) I will contact Brooks again for the next occasion that we need.

Brooks arrived on time, and entertained our guests with cool jazz selections until our wedding ceremony began. He helped set the mood beautifully. We enjoyed his beautiful playing after the ceremony as we all mingled. We highly recommend him! ??????????

Mr. Kaplan was very responsive during the planning process of our corporate event. He was on time and even had tunes to play during set up. He had an efficient set up and break down. He did a great job at our event playing tunes throughout the ages and different genres. This worked well for our group that was made up of many different backgrounds.

From the time I requested a quote until our last correspondence after the wedding, Brooks Kaplan was amazing. He was very professional and easy to communicate with, as well as accommodating. He was always prompt in his responses and arrived early with plenty of time to set up. We couldn't have asked for anything better! He is an extremely talented musician and I would recommend him to anyone. All of our guests had wonderful comments about his performance and it was the perfect addition to make our ceremony perfect.
