7/14/12 Bastille Day Celebration

Thanks for a great party! Everyone was commenting that this was the best year ever! I had so many people ask about the musicians so I hope you get some referrals. I loved your dj package as well. You really have this French thing down! Thanks to all of you.

7/23/12 K&L Gates Event

I just wanted to say thank you for the great event at Phipps Conservatory.  I really enjoyed getting to hear you live - it was so relaxing for me in an otherwise stress-filled week.  Unfortunately, they placed the bars in the cooler places for our group, which, as you well knew, was where everyone clustered.  I look forward to working with you again - thanks again for your patience and for the great performance.

7/21/12 Divine Celebrations

Got a last-minute call from Erin at Divine Celebrations to play Cocktail Hour of the wedding she was planning at the Doubletree Hotel in Moon Twp.  The Dj - who she did not hire- failed to mention to the client he could not provide music for the first hour in the lobby so "Who you gonna call ?".  Turns out the mother of the groom was the curator and gave the VIP tour of the French Impressionist paintings as part of the Bastille Day celebration I played on July 14.

7/21/12 Market District Pine Township

Joh Garrick and I were back at this Giant Eagle Store in the Village of Pine on Saturday afternoon playing a wide variety of favorites that had them dancing in the aisles.  Thanks to Kim at Big Day Entertainment.
