He has a GREAT voice, a warm personality, and the knack of making connections with his audience. His music "makes your heart sing"--uplifting, joyful and fun.

Corporate Function in Livermore, CA on 08/20/2010
"William gave a WONDERFUL performance at our company's annual Open House for our customers. All who attended enjoyed the music, many of them going out of their way to comment about how lovely he was. The music was delightful, a perfect soft mix of oldies and easy-listening songs with his acoustic guitar. But despite his rare talent, William was professional, kind, helpful, witty, and funny, engaging the crowd at every opportunity. During his breaks, he played a great arrangement of other music for our guest to enjoy. I highly recommend this performer for your event. Thank you so much, William! We look forward to having you back at our next company event!"

"William is an exceptional performer. He is not only a gifted and very professional musician, but a delightful comedian, as well. His stage presence and personality are stellar - he reaches out and grabs the audience from the very get go and keeps them involved and entertained right through his final number.
His repertoire is broad and covers the era of 60's folk music well. But, perhaps most delightful of all, the spirit of that time appears to have stayed with William. He seems to truly believe in the goodness of people, the brotherhood of mankind, and our place as stewards of the earth. I give him my highest recommendation. Thanks William!"

They were inspired by his songs and his charisma as he told about each song's history and related trivia. The residents were extremely generous with applause and appreciation. They will certainly welcome him back again, anytime. Dolores Lucena, Aegis Activities "
