Rev. Reister was very professional. He learned a song for me and played all my songs beautifully. He paid attention to the transitions between songs. He was early to the ceremony and played until the last few people had moved on to the cocktail hour. I highly recommend him.

Pastor Bill was in continued communication with me prior to event. He was prompt and arrived early to set up for event. I would highly recommend him when a harpist is needed and most likely will use him again in the future. D. Nelson Milton Florida

He was WONDERFUL! We loved him!!! We asked him if he could do an unexpected song, (our singer didn't come), even though, he was asked last minute, he said he had the music and did it. Because he is a Pastor we asked if he would mind giving the benediction. He tied in all that was said througbout the service, then gave the benediction...........PERFECT!!!! He is AWESOME!
