Don Crane made our wedding fabulous! From playing the right music during a solemn wedding ceremony, to dinner music, to singing and dancing during the reception - he could do it all. Don was the ultimate professional in all regards, plus he is a fun and talented musician. I highly recommend Don for your next event.

Don was great! Showed up early. His piano and vocal skills are amazing, we still have friends talking about our party. Don is very easy to communicate with and also very accommodating. Our piano never sounded so good! Thanks Don!

Don played for our daughter's wedding reception during dinner service. All of our guests, both young and old, told us over and over again how wonderful it was to have live entertainment. Don also was gracious enough to say a prayer for the couple when our minister was unable to make the reception. His announcement of the bride and groom and the rest of the bridal party was a perfect start to a great reception. His music was upbeat and covered a wide range of styles and eras. Lastly, Don went above and beyond to fit us into his schedule. Kudos to a true professional! We are thankful that you could help make for a very memorable day.
