Wedding Ceremony in Fort Worth, TX on 10/20/2012
"Laura was amazing to work with. From email to working with her in her office home, she was professional, and willing to listen to my ideas while adding her musical talent and experience to my themes and compositions. With Laura's help, and advice we put together a unique and lovely wedding ceremony unlike any other I had ever attended. We incorporated traditional wedding music, with popular songs of ours using string and classic piano melodies composed by Laura. We will be using Laura for any other occasions we may be planning, and recommend Laura to all of our friends and family. "

"Laura was wonderful. Her attention to the detail of our event made me feel I was her only client (which clearly was not the case). Laura is very talented, and caring. Laura customized all her music to support our themed family reunion. The wide variety of music she was able to provide was amazing. I would recommend hiring Laura."

Birthday Party (Adults) in Grapevine, TX on 07/31/2011
"Laura Cummings is a beautiful musician, and overall, a beautiful individual. She responded quickly to my request on gigmasters, and tailored her performance to our event. We were amazed by her repertoire, and pleased by the way she planned and shared the entire list of music in advance. Laura arrived early, with her husband, who is her assistant; between the two of them, they handled their own set-up. Laura's music is lovely, and she provided just the perfect level of entertainment while still allowing our guests to dine and converse. We heartily recommend her, and hope to see her again in the future."

Wedding Ceremony in Fort Worth, TX on 11/11/2012
"Laura was so sweet! We loved that she welcomed us into her home and took her time playing different music options for us and helping us choose songs that fit our wedding best. She had tons of songs to choose from, but at the time of our wedding, was not able to take any new song requests that were not already in her repertoire. Aside from that small detail Laura was very prompt, very organized, and a pleasure to work with. "
- Erin K.
Laura Cummings’s Response:
"I would like to respond to the Score of 4 pertaining to special requests.
At the time that Shawna booked her wedding with me, I had a huge amount of bookings on my schedule. That is why at that particular time I encouraged Shawna to try and work with my existing repertoire (which is over 400 pieces of music.)
I book not only through Gig Masters, but also through my own site.
I often learn 2 or more new songs for the weddings that I do. This past spring and fall, however, has seen a tremendous increase in my bookings, thus, I had to set some limits.
I encourage brides to book early on. This helps a vendor to be more flexible about requests. "

Christmas Party in Dallas, TX on 12/10/2011
"Laura was very accomodating and excited about our Company's Holiday party. She painstakingly researched the music of the 40's jazz era - weeks before the event and came up with a jam packed play list that fit right in with our theme. She even made certain that she dressed the part with a "just darling" 40's outfit. Laura is obviously very musically talented and keep the party going and would recommend her!"
- Cherlyn W.

"She was a delight to work with. Very personable and flexible around our party schedule for activities as well as playing suggestions. She blended in well with accommodating us with background music, which was the perfect atmosphere.
She was wonderful when she played a couple of requests so our Owners Daughter(age4) could sing to our group.
I would recommend her very highly.
Thank you very much Laura
