We would highly recommend Steven. He was professional, but also very compassionate, seeing as we hired him to sing at our mother's graveside burial. He was able to learn the song we asked for within a short time, and was kind enough to check in with us to ensure he was preparing appropriately. He was on site when the funeral procession arrived and played beautifully. We couldn't have asked for a better performer or performance. The Hennessys

Steven O'Toole - Irish Musician’s Response:

Hi Ellen -- Thank you so much for your kind words about my performance at your family's memorial service for your mother. It was a real honor to help celebrate your mother's wonderful life of 91 years by performing the music she loved for your family and friends. I'm glad I was able to bring the Irish spirit to the occasion and perform exactly the songs you wanted. God bless you and your family. Kind regards, Steven O'Toole

It was really amazing. He entertained us with his music, singing, and interaction with the group. He had us on our feet trying to do a jig and he took requests too. He was perfect for our event and gave us more than we expected for a fun, crazy St. Patricks celebration. Becky Fye
