Recent Reviews

"Kevin, thank you for playing beautifully [and tirelessly] at our house. Our guests loved it just as much as Anne and I did. You added elegance and romance and the feeling Fred Astaire was about to appear!"
-Julian

"Kevin was great from start to finish! I needed someone who could come in and play that perfect jazz piano background music for our cocktail/birthday party. He pulled that off with ease and by the end of the evening, people had gathered around the piano making requests to sing along to. Things were going so well that I further enlisted his services beyond the originally agreed to time-frame and he was very accommodating. As a piano player of 30+ years myself, I can vouch for his skills to entertain. I'd definitely hire him back again should the opportunity present itself. Thanks, Kevin!"
-Marc
