Chris was the consummate professional! He arrived early, dressed impeccably. His piano playing provided the perfect backdrop for our event. His piano skills are outstanding, his repertoire varied. He was a pleasure to work with. I will definitely book Chris again for future events!

Chris was friendly and accommodating. He had a fine selection on his playlist. Exactly what I asked for. A mixture of classical, 40's, 50's and standards. I also asked for quiet ambience. His piano was unobtrusive so conversation was easy. I would hire him agai Oh and he was on time and ready to play.
