Brian Kelly was hired to provide both current and Christmas music for a large party my wife and I hosted. It was to be the last party in the house before we retired and moved South. In that I am a guitarist, I asked Brian to back me up for one set of special songs during the evening. We practiced twice before the event, for which I paid him an hourly rate. He is very talented, very sensitive to style and totally complementary as back up. The evening went wonderfully, everyone enjoyed the treat of live music, and the special set made the evening. He is a wonderful person, expert musician and wonderful addition to any group.
