I have been delighted with Tony’s performance for my event. He has been extremely professional and played all my requests, as well as some of his own choice. All my friends had a lovely time, and he exceeded my expectations. Highly recommended.

Tony has given a great and passionate performance to my family and friends with a varied program. He is very versatile and talented. Also, he was very professional and understanding when I asked him if he could include some pieces my grandfather liked. I would definitely hire him again for various events!
