Piano Player Testimonials:

Ana and I wish to thank you once again for your great work Sunday at our wedding. We certainly enjoyed hearing you play, but it’s the number of guest inquiries that has me really excited to share with you.  ‘Where did you find this gentleman?  He’s wonderful!’  ‘He adds the perfect complement to your service and to this venue!’  ‘He provides such a great backdrop!’  ‘I found myself toe-tapping along and trying to determine each song without the lyrics…very entertaining!’ With warmest regards and sincere thanks! – Ana and Steve M. (West Bloomfield, Michigan)

Thank you for playing last night, you did a wonderful job and everyone was complimenting. I will be sure to recommend you to our friends and family when they are having events. – Neda N. (Ann Arbor, Michigan)

We, my small dinner party, couldn’t have been more pleased. He even did Bohemian Rhapsody like no other could! I look forward to having my piano tuned and having him back.  – Rosalie R. (Bloomfield Hills, Michigan)

David was a huge hit at my company event. He even played some Korean holiday music which really scored some smiles from the president of our company. I will be hiring him again next year and hope he will be available! – Kimberley P. (Novi, Michigan)

As a kind of last minute decision I (hired David) for my son’s outdoor wedding. It was super easy and we texted back and forth a few times until we had all the kinks worked out as far as what to play and when. David did a great job! Everyone raved about how perfect the afternoon went because of David. He did exactly as we discussed and it went so smoothly! – Mary C. (Farmington, Michigan)
