Vadim is a very talented guitarist, the music was lovely. He was professional, respectful, and always happy to accommodate our special requests. I highly recommend him. He was performing with fellow musician Alex Gorodetsky (Via Romen duo) as background music at a memorial dinner, a strange venue for a jazz guitarist. They handled it gracefully and played beautifully, working together to create the atmosphere we wanted. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.
