Skip was WONDERFUL! He contacted my parents to form a playlist tailored to their tastes for their anniversary party, kept in contact with me for the contracting piece, showed up promptly and early, and happily played to the crowd's delight. Many of my parents' friends asked Skip for a card if that is any indication of how well he performed. So glad we booked Skip and he made the event truly special!

Skip looked quite 'dapper' in his tuxedo. Skip was very accommodating in the 'timing and presentation' of the United States Air Force song for us, and the happy birthday music too, and particularly wonderful 'love' songs for our 50th wedding anniversary and my husband's 90th birthday. Highly recommend Skip to everyone.
