Denise Bruckno entertained our guests during our recent wedding reception. She was fantastic! It was a pleasure communicating with her during the planning- she was organized and professional and very accommodating. Our guests truly enjoyed her playing. Our family members are quite musical and can be tough critics when it comes to other performers, but everyone raved over her musicality and pleasantness. We would highly recommend Denise, we are so thankful we found her!

Denise played keyboard for my Dad's 85h birthday on June 23, 2013. She is a gifted jazz and standards interpreter and has a terrific repertoire under her fingers, but this was no regular gig -first, while the party was in Philly, I live in Los Angeles. Plus, I had written an original song and didn't complete the lead sheet music until 3 days before the party. Denise not only learned the song on her own time, but met up with me the day before to rehearse! The song went off perfectly, and Denise's musical style and easygoing personality really made the party. There's something special about a great musician -- Denise has it. Enthusiastically recommended!

Denise is a wonderful musician, and her jazz provided the perfect background atmosphere during the cocktail hour at my daughter's wedding reception. We didn't have access to a piano, so she brought her own keyboard and equipment and got everything set up beautifully. She was also accommodating about the timing when the schedule shifted on our end. Highly recommended.
