Damian took a special request to perform at a proposal and even learned a song in which I was not able to provide him the sheet music for.

Damian is a Fraud! He starts off with one price and pushes the price as he goes. He was 1 hour late and doesn't even answer your phone call. Then when he gets there he says he has been waiting for hours not knowing I had friends and a professional photographer there as well. Then when he proformed his rusty style he is ready to bargain some more in the middle of my very important date. Won't recommend him to anyone, unless you want a headache the day of and a hand full of stress that comes along with his drama. I never give reviews like this but I had it with this Con Artist. Maybe in his young days he was a star but now he looks like someone that is a Drunk.

Damian Boucher’s Response:

This was a very difficult, rude client who had no concept of what it costs to have a professional violinist perform in NYC. After agreeing on a very discounted low price via phone and email he tacked on all these extra requests like learning a special song, which I did at no extra charge just to move forward with the event and please the client. I was professional at all times and performed a perfect show dressed in a tux at the specified location. When I was done I even stayed around posing for photos (he contracted me for 15 min., I was on site for 1.5 hours). Everyone was happy and kissing at no time did he ever complain about anything, he paid me in full, plus
