Birthday Party (Adults) in Barrington, IL on 09/14/2013
"From the first contact to the end of her performance, Nina was a consummate professional. She is an excellent, excellent accordion player and everyone enjoyed her music very much (even those who previously thought that they didn't like accordion music). If you are looking for an accordion player there is no one better. And if you are looking for a musician of any type who will do a great job entertaining your guests, Nina would be an excellent choice."
