 I recentlty used GigMasters to find a pianist during cocktail time for our daughter's wedding reception. Ray Van Straten was perfect! He was responsive from the start, very professional, and a great pianist! Thank you again Ray for adding that special touch we were hoping for on our special day! I would not hesitate to use him again, and gladly recommend him and GigMasters to anyone looking for someone for their own special event!

Ray arrived to our home early (appreciated!) attired as requested, introduced himself, sat down at our 1930’s era baby grand, and proceeded to play the perfect mix of music for our daughter’s Mad Men themed engagement cocktail party. We’d recommend Ray without hesitation and hope he can return to play for us again soon.

Ray is a very classy man! He is incredibly nice, emails/contacts back in a timely matter, he's punctual, prepared, accommodating, professional, and plays the piano beautifully! Ray is a top-notch performer, and all who heard him play that evening were very appreciative. We all enjoyed his company.
