Josh was AMAZING!! Talented, professional, personable, accommodating, friendly. He was just the right talent for my "tropical" themed party. Several of my guests complimented me on his playing. Most of my guests ask "Where did you find him! He's great!". I have already recommended him to friends both on social media and in person. Did i mention he was talented? My only regret is that I don' have another party planned so i can hire him again!
