We were really impressed with Joseph's professionalism, song list, presentation and most importantly talent. He really set the mood for our affair. Everyone was impressed with our one man band instrumentalist. Guests were able to conversate while Joseph played Other guests chose to just listen and enjoy the show. It was a very good balance. This was our first time booking entertainment for a house party. Having done so, now we will have live enterainment at all of our future parties. We were impressed with the GigMasters booking process. We only decided to have a party five days before the event. Joseph was quick and responsive within a few hours of our post.
