I cannot say enough great things about Tim Bachman! So cordial during phone conversations prior to the date...and in person he exceeded our expectations!!! He is a natural talent, accommodating, prompt, willing to be there early ....even played later, as he knew the Party was still full of guests!!! ....his attention to detail -- important! The evening of the Rehearsal Dinner, not only was his selection of tunes appropriate, but the volume made it so easy for all of us to still be able to converse! Yet so many of our friends stayed close to him, just so they could enjoy his talent and the music he loves! Hiring Tim was the best choice we could have made!!

Mr. Bachman arrived prior to the event, dressed formally and was very professional. He made sure the music selection and tone was perfect. The Bride & Groom were most pleased and grateful that I hired an experienced, gracious and courteous pianist. I would highly recommend Mr. Bachman for any type of social event for clearly his repertoire is vast and he's very congenial. Sincerely, Bridgette Kronlage

Not only was Tim on time--he was early and was accommodate to delay his setup until we were ready for him. He played at the right volume and had a wonderful program set up for us as we had requested all kinds of holiday music. I would definitely hire him again. Also, he is just plain old fashioned nice.
