Sam is such a talented pianist. We hired him to fill our living room with wonderful background jazz for our party and he met every expectation. He arrived on time, played beautifully, delighting us and our guests. He has a wonderful sound and is highly recommended! MJD San Rafael

I hired Sam for a company holiday party in December of 2012, he did an amazing job. Sam showed up ahead of schedule, was dressed appropriately for the occasion, and accommodating and courteous throughout the entire evening. He played a wonderful set and match the music to the energy of the event. I can't express how amazing it was to have Sam at our event; I received a deluge of compliments from my coworker about how stellar his performance was. I think the highest praise I can give is that Sam made the event a little more special, and I will hire him again in a heartbeat.

Sam showed up on time, well dressed and ready to play. His knowledge of the Christmas repertoire was first rate and he even obliged my guests that wanted to join him for a carol or two. Sam's contribution to my party was exceptional and very much appreciated.

Overall a great experience. Sam's piano skills/music choices were exactly what we wanted. He arrived on time and, thankfully, needed no directions regarding where to go/when to play etc. as we were busy with the wedding.

Sam played for three hours at a retirement party I hosted at my house. It was far and away the best party atmosphere I have ever had at one of my parties and it was entirely due to Sam. I look forward to my next opportunity to hire him. I would not think of holding a party without engaging Sam in the future. He is awesome!!

I can't recommend Sam highly enough. I went in search of a pianist for my wedding with a specific and lofty request: 90 minutes of real jazz! Thelonious Monk, Herbie Hancock, Bud Powell, Bill Evans. Turns out such a player is hard to find. I heard from a number of pianist offering to play pop and light jazz standards -- you know, standard, easy listening cocktail fare. Luckily Sam replied to my request, writing "Playing real music on an actual piano is my specialty." Boy is it ever. Sam played beautifully, bringing a touch of class to our cocktail hour that my discerning guests immediately appreciated. In addition to his musical ability, Sam was a total professional.
