Private PartyReviewed on August 24, 2019From Deerfield, IL

Steven was a great addition to our party. Everyone loved him! He kept the energy up, took requests and accompanied our guests when they had to write their own songs. We would highly recommend him for any type of event.

Pianist On Call - Steven Solomon:

Thanks, Stacey for the kind words. Wow was that a fun party! Loved all the guests in their 'Broadway Show' costumes and accompanying them on their very clever and funny original songs, along with all the sing-alongs and requests throughout the night. Cool house, cool party and wonderful hosts...and guests! Thanks for having me at the piano. Looking forward to being of service to you at the piano at your next fun party. And what an added thrill to be able to hold and take a picture with one of your husband's Tony Awards!

Retirement PartyReviewed on September 30, 2016From Lincolnwood, IL

Steven Solomon was great! The party started slow because everyone was catching up so Steven played soft back ground music.Later everyone was into the music Steven took request and I found the entire party group was singing and dancing a good time was had by all. I would recommend Steven highly. He was professional, and accommodating to all my guest.

Pianist On Call - Steven Solomon:

Thanks Jackie for the kind words. What a fun party you put together. Appreciated the nice comments your guests gave me during the evening and fun interaction at the piano with you and your guests. Great piano and delicious food :) Looking forward to your next party!
