We hired Bruce to play the piano during a special event for our daughter at the Fairmont Copley Hitel. Before the event, Bruce was very responsive and accommodating. I requested a combination of classical music, jazz, religious hymns, pop, rock and R&B (Bach, Mozart, Joe Sample, Beyoncé, Gershwin, etc.). Bruce played every single song on my long list of specific song request from a many genres. The music was wonderful and we were very pleased with his performance. Our guests complimented us throughout the event. I would definitely hire Bruce again and highly recommend him to our friends and family.

We had Bruce play the piano at the cocktail hour at our recent wedding. He was very professional and easy to communicate with during the planning process. Our guests enjoyed Bruce's playing and were thrilled when he played their requests! He also played a special request at the conclusion of the cocktail hour. We would highly recommend booking Bruce to entertain your guests at any type of function.
