If I could go higher than a 5, I would. I can't begin to say enough remarkable things about Skip. His professionalism, talent and ease to work with, was one of stellar quality. He truly made our event very special, and we received numerous positive comments from the crowd. I would highly recommend Skip to all that I know, and I hope we get a chance to see him again in the future.
