John is someone I would call on again. He arrived promptly, dressed perfectly and was very much a gentleman and very good natured. We hired him to play our piano for our New Year's Eve party and he impressed everyone with his talent and knowledge of so many pieces. John made our party special and memorable!

Dear Johnny Barker, We saw the smiles! Everyone is still talking about the event. An awesome walk in for all. We especially wish to thank you for working with us to compliment the style of music needed for our Christmas Holiday Event. Time went by so quickly, we were amazed how everyone was having such a great time wanting to dance more. Your smooth singing and usage of DJ songs for the young and old made the event. Thanks LB
