Ben arrived on time and was mindful of our request to start when we needed him to. He was very friendly to our guests and answered questions about his instruments. His continuous play did not overpower the room or the conversation of our guests. He was an absolutely a perfect addition to our function. I would recommend Ben to anyone who may be looking for this type of entertainment.

Ben played violin at wedding ceremony for us in an historic little country church at The Historical Society Museum Center in Tomball this past Saturday night. Everything was excellent in his selections and performance. The ceremony was carried out with a Celtic flair and the music was absolutely awesome. We had requested classical, popular arrangements and Celtic music and all were superbly executed. Much appreciated and highly recommended!

Very professional, excellent performance, and attentive to details. Ben really came through for my wifes birthday dinner. His celtic songs transported us across the ocean. And he also has a great array of modern classics and even current hits. Thanks Ben, everyone is talking about how great it was.

Ben did a great job fiddling for our firm's summer BBQ. Ben played a selection of country, western and blue grass fiddle tunes. He was the perfect addition to our small party (about 60 persons) and really set a delightful ambiance for our event. He was a pleasure to work with.

This was a present to my daughter on her 30th birthday. I talked to her after his performance, and she was thrilled. He was very accommodating, playing everything she requested (including part of a Bach partita), plus some Celtic fiddling music, tango, and jazz. He played the "Meditation from Thais," which I requested, too. So I think she also would rate him very highly. Thanks!

As other reviewers have stated consistently, Ben is a great professional, from planning to actual execution. He had great advice, such as what music to play and it was Ben's idea to use his charming and talented accompanist Lara on harp during dinner, and then switch to piano afterwards. Ben arrived 40 minutes early! We appreciated not only their talent, but their sensitivity to special needs guests, ensuring everyone was enjoying themselves and having a good time. This was a true gift for all. We would not hesitate to recommend Ben.

Ben did a wonderful job for our daughter's wedding. He was diligent in his preparation and helped us through, offering suggestions for songs and patient with us as we were quite busy planning and executing the event. At the actual event, which was outside, late morning and in Texas, quite hot. Ben stayed with it, despite the heat, and kept our guests entertained and soothed as much as possible :) I would highly recommend Ben if you need a violinist for any event.

I was impressed that Ben agreed to do this gig when I only contacted him one week in advance. He was very good about checking in with me several times in the days leading up to the event. He arrived early, and was ready to perform on time. He related well with the residents at our retirement community, and was willing to play their requests as well as his prepared program. Since it was a St. Patrick's party, it was informal and freindly. The residents enjoyed his music, and it made a memorable event for us.
