"We used Glenn for our outdoor wedding so that we could have both ambient music for the ceremony and entertainment during the reception. Glenn was absolutely A+ in his performance. During the ambient portion the music flowed gently – the transitions between songs were buttery smooth and we didn't notice any gaps – it was perfect. For the reception we kicked it up a little bit and Glenn selected a great mix based on our tastes. My wife and I heartily recommend Glenn, he's a master at what he does and we were lucky to have had him." — J. K., September 2007

"We hired Glenn Kramer for an improvisation show because we were aware of his ability to
make up tunes on the spot in a given style. What a difference it made in our show! Besides the fact that the audiences loved that we made up songs to go with his melodies, he added colorful music that suited the styles of our scenework. We were so glad that we chose to
enhance our show by having Glenn there. When he told me that he had composed a classical CD, I had to have that as well. Unbelievable! If he can create and play works like that in addition to making up a jazz number, a rock number, and a torch song for us on the fly, any event I can imagine - from high-brow to bar-crowd - the attendees would love him!" — M. Shapiro, July 2010
