Alan did an outstanding job for us at our wedding reception. We hired him to play during the cocktail hour and throughout dinner (2 hrs). We gave him a vague idea of what we wanted (ellington, sinatra and glenn miller type stuff). Alan did a great job of understanding the type of music we wanted and incorporating different artists into the overall mood we were looking to set. When dinner ran late, he didn't get up and leave, or look over at us as if to say this would cost extra. He just kept on playing. We received a lot of compliments on selecting him including one from my brother who is a professional musician and band instructor. We would strongly recommend Alan to anyone looking for a talented, highly professional piano player.
