HIRED GARY FOR A 70TH BIRTHDAY PARTY AND REQUESTED SONGS FROM THAT ERA. GARY MET EVERY EXPECTATION AND REALLY MADE IT A GREAT PARTY. HE'S A FANTASTIC PERFORMER AND EVERYONE COMMENTED HOW GREAT THE MUSIC WAS. IT WAS MY FIRST EXPERIENCE WITH GIGMASTER AND GARY COMMUNICATED WITH ME FROM THE START OF THE BOOKING TO THE DAY BEFORE. HE ACCOMMODATED THE HOURS NECESSARY FOR THE PARTY AND REALLY MADE THE DAY COMPLETE AND LOTS OF FUN. I WOULD HIRE HIM AGAIN AND RECOMMEND HIM HIGHLY.
