Chris was fantastic- he was very responsive to emails, showed up on time, adapted to the environment and was extremely talented. I look forward to working with him again!

Chris did a wonderful job playing at my party. His musical selections were perfect for the vibe I wanted at this party. A guest surprised me by having an opera singer perform and Chris was able to accompany him beautifully without ever rehearsing . I would definitely hire him again.

Mr. Cooley went above and beyond my expectations for my wedding. Of particular note was the fact that he was able to accommodate our singer by learning a song from a recording by ear (along with all of the voicings for many very specific extended chords) and then by transposing it down to a key that better suited her voice. I appreciated his professionalism, punctuality, and cordiality throughout our conversations and also on the day of our wedding; I would recommend him to anyone who needs a highly competent and reliable musician.
