Chris did a fabulous job. He called to confirm date/place/arrival time which put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend Chris for your event!

CelebrationReviewed on October 22, 2019From New York City, NY

Chris was the dream choice for a crowded book party celebrating the biography of Elaine Stritch! He was familiar with her work, which really gave me confidence, and listened to my suggestions for songs, but also added his own expertise about what might work at such an event. Everyone loved his playing, which lent exactly the right mood. I was very nervous about the party and his professionalism and humor instantly put me at ease. He was prompt, polite, and just perfect. Would hire again in a heartbeat.
