Johnny Reno was amazing! I had booked him to surprise my father for his 85TH Bday party, my dad shares the same exact birthdate as the king. So surprising him with a performance was perfect. The booking was very simple and communication regarding details worked perfectly. Johnny kept his word on the plans that we agreed to and everything worked out so smoothly. His performance knocked our socks off, our party guests and especially my dad were elated. I would definitely recommend Johnny Reno to any of my friends and family. Great JOB and thank you for making my dad's big birthday one we will never forget.
*** WINNER OF GIGMASTER'S BEST OF 2012, 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 AWARDS ***
This past year was especially difficult for our country and we gig performers were affected in our own way like everyone. Cancelled performances as well as annual repeat shows that we loved doing with old friends did not happen in 2020. I had to do work arounds with virtual and telephone singing telegrams, along with brave souls who wanted live perfomances, acknowledging special rules with masks and social distancing of course, and we were still able to get enough shows in for me to be honored with my 8th award in the past 9 years. Let's hope and pray 2021 will be a much more sane and successful year for us all. God bless us all and God bless America. Thankya, thankyaverymuch.
