Review by Noah T.

FestivalReviewed on May 13, 2017From Elkhart Lake, WI

Rory did a great job for us at a major jazz festival. He was professional: learned all the music we sent him, was punctual, well dressed, and with a great sense of humor. A very capable pianist, he played all our piano parts with ease...but was also able use his ear and creativity to create his own material and add to the music where needed/wanted. We would hire again!

Rory B.-The Killer of the Keys:

Roman Street jazz and Latin music ensemble was a pleasure to collaborate with for the jazz festival. They are very professional and were courteous to me as a new member joining in for the first time making sure I was comfortable with the set list both ahead of time and on the day of the gig. Loved working with them and look forward to another opportunity to collaborate and make music together!

Christmas PartyReviewed on December 17, 2016From Pewaukee, WI

We were very pleased to have Rory at our holiday brunch. He did a fantastic job entertaining and his piano playing was awesome. It was so nice to have the pleasant background music. We all really enjoyed it and would highly recommend Rory. Thanks! Francine Teska - Reinhart Foodservice, L.L.C.
