I had to work with Don long distance, only hearing his voice on recordings. He has a good voice, more sweet than loud, which was very good for a wedding. I asked him to play with my brother, whom he'd never met, and they only were able to rehearse for an hour and a half prior to the start of the performance. Don was very accommodating, and I was very happy as to how well it went. Of all the professionals I'd hired that day, Don is one of the very few I am able to say did everything they were supposed to do as well as I'd hoped (nothing goes completely as planned on a wedding day... but his performance actually did!). Complete professional.

I hired Don for my mom's 80th birthday party. Don was so personable, so friendly, so professional,and most of all, sounded so great! He showed up an hour before he was to be there. He called me and emailed me to find out what songs we wanted sung, and to find out more about my mom and family. I got so many compliments about how wonderful it was to have him playing at the dinner. No one was planning on dancing, but a few of us got up and danced (including my mom and dad)! I would highly recommend Don! You will not be disappointed. He made the night so special and added so much more to this event.

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.
