We hired John for a Grand Opening celebration at BLICK Art Materials in Tampa, FL. John was very accommodating to the needs of the store, and was incredibly professional in his interactions with staff and customers. John provided the ideal ambiance for our special event, and came to the store completely prepared with what he needed to perform that morning. This made it so easy for BLICK staff to accomplish what we needed to while he played music for our 150+ customers that day. John received compliments from customers, as well as BLICK associates, who used words to describe him such as "classy", "perfect fit", "talented", and "professional".
