John-Paul was crucial to making our party the hit of the season! Our 40+ guests had never been invited to such as event, described by one as a "New York style" party, where live music was offered in an intimate setting, so John-Paul, being the first had a high mark to set, and he did! I was the one who insisted on a live piano player, and had the highest expectations. John-Paul helped make "my" party. Even my wife, who got many compliments on everything, received compliments on his performance and our good taste in making it the type of party it was, and none of that would have been possible without John-Paul's work. My wife's "mixer" of Sing with the Piano Player was only possible because John-Paul was so accomodating and made our guests comfortable. On the objective points, arrival on time, dress, deportment staying with it to the end, and always performing...all "5's", but when engaging a performer. one looks for the subjectives, and John-Paul's subjectives were also "High 5's".
