Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on May 5, 2018From Woodbury, MN

There aren’t enough superlatives to describe his skill :) He did background music which helped to set s great tone for my husbands 60th birthday party - we had many theater and choir people there and he played and they sang for hours! :) Everyone loved him and we were blown away by his ability to vamp and play any request. Highly recommended! (But don’t book him on any nights when we want him to return!) :)

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on September 24, 2016From Hopkins, MN

Nate was fantastic! He had very few requests of him and just let him do his thing; he's the professional! We had a beautiful grand piano in our venue and wanted to utilize it. Our guests recognized his music, could see them bobbing a long to the beat and he played a variety to appease different generations. He came early and played longer than he had to. We never asked him to but did it for a seamless transition from cocktail hour to dinner. I'm finding reasons to have more parties just so I can have Nate come play for us again. Nate, thank you! You made our evening and more memorable and our guests loved it!
