The 5 star scale isn't enough. He was early and setup without me having to worry about/direct him other than pointing to a spot on the patio and saying "there would be perfect". He was fully self-contained, ready to play before the first guest arrived. He even waited to start his set until the party got to the backyard so that he wasn't playing to an empty yard (which caused him to play later but he had zero complaints and seemed to genuinely care that the party went well). His music was superb, flowed perfectly with the party all night, and was so good, that I ended up having him stay TWICE as long as he was booked for. Absolutely made the party! Book him!
