We hired Josh Walker Trio for an convention event. He and his trio provided background jazz during a reception. He arrived promptly and ready to perform. He and his trio members were excellent musicians and we enjoyed their playing. He added the right touch to the reception. I'd hire him again and his sound really lends itself to receptions, dinners, events where you want really good music to add that sparkle to an event. Well done Josh!! Thank you for a great job at our conference!
