Ray was a real gentleman from the first minute he stepped to our front door. He was a pure professional there to do a job, and added very little (none) friction for me and my wife and he let us focus on making a great environment for our guests. His musical style and volume were perfect for the different stages of the evening. He had it all planned and executed well. We will be using him again! Thank you Ray!

I hired Ray for a small gathering at my house around Christmas. He was fantastic to work with. We talked a couple of times leading up to the event to discuss music options, requests, etc. He showed up on time and was a pleasure to work with. Friendly, great catalog of music, entertaining and very talented. I would definitely recommend him as well as hire him again myself.

Ray saved our party! One day before our New Year's Eve party, our piano player cancelled and left us without a recommendation for a back-up. Fortunately, we were at a party a couple of weeks ago where Ray was performing. We enjoyed his playing but didn't consider him because we already had another musician. So with only about 24 hours to go we asked our friends how they found Ray and they gave us his Gigmasters link. He called us immediately. He had planned a quiet night at home with friends but knew we were in trouble, so he came. What can I say? His music was great and the party went off without a hitch. Wish I could give 10 stars. RECOMMENDED!
