We hired Ryan Blakemore to play at our wedding with less than two weeks notice. He fulfilled all special requests, such as dancing music and waltzes for the dance and then beautiful atmospheric music during the meal. He blended diverse styles such as Dixieland jazz and Russian expressionism. He came early, played beautifully, and stayed until everyone else was gone. He was a joy to work with, and when we didn't know what music to ask for, he had great suggestions. I highly recommend him as a professional.

We booked Ryan to play my wedding ceremony. Ryan was friendly, helpful and accommodating throughout our planning process. I'm sure I was a difficult client because I knew how I wanted the music to sound but, not having much technical knowledge, had a difficult time choosing songs and describing what I'd like. He was kind and professional,offered suggestions, spoke with me, my mother and my musician brother on several occasions to make sure he was creating just the right sound for each part of the ceremony. For an additional fee he was even willing to learn a few songs by ear for which there was no sheet music. The music was beautiful and we were thoroughly pleased!

We cannot even begin to explain how happy we are with Ryan and his music he performed for our daughter's wedding. If we could give him more stars, we definitely would! Communication, promptness, appearance, demeanor, talent, and cooperation throughout the entire process were far above what we ever expected. We recommend him to anyone who is looking for the best piano player you could ever want for your event! THANK YOU so much, Ryan, for making our daughter's dreams come true on her special day!!!!!

Ryan was the absolute perfect answer for our wedding and reception. Professional, versatile, accommodating and charming. I didn't even get the chance to meet Ryan prior to our celebration, and everything went off without a hitch! He is a very talented pianist and accompanied our vocalists beautifully with very little rehearsal. I would not hesitate and instant to provide him as a referral for any type of function or venue. Wish they offered 6 stars here!!!!
