We hired Josh Walker Trio for an convention event. He and his trio provided background jazz during a reception. He arrived promptly and ready to perform. He and his trio members were excellent musicians and we enjoyed their playing. He added the right touch to the reception. I'd hire him again and his sound really lends itself to receptions, dinners, events where you want really good music to add that sparkle to an event. Well done Josh!! Thank you for a great job at our conference!

Josh was extremely flexible in dealing with last minute changes to the booking. He was always polite and responded to in a timely manner. His trio chose a great set for the event and played at the perfect volume.
