Dave was very nice and responsive via email and phone. However, I was explicit about wanting just music when our party started to establish ambiance. Originally I had requested acoustic/flamenco music for our Valentines Cocktail party. I'm not sure if Dave was flustered about arriving late due to a car accident that caused a traffic jam or just forgot my request as he started by singing songs. He said he had performed earlier in the day, perhaps he was tired, but so many songs were sung off-key. The live music was a nice element, but the singing wasn't note-worthy.

Dave Winstone’s Response:

I'm stunned!I was asked to stay half an hour overtime and received a tip and warm thank you from Mrs M. After discussion w/the client I was contracted to play 'suitable music' for her Valentine’s Day party with guitar and some vocals. She wrote “I'll leave the entertainment to your judgement-I'm sure you're great at reading a crowd.” I began instrumentally. Vocals were in response to requests by guests and her husband.I checked with Mrs M twice during the evening to make sure that everything was OK. Although it was a small cocktail party guests were singing along and a couple of people including the hosts danced.Many guests thanked me for the great music.
