David brought the finishing touch to our little party!

David made my 29th birthday for the 21st time, birthday party a complete hit. He was totally awesome to work with - Very professional and played beautifully. He arrived when promised and played to our 1920s theme with perfection. Even taking unplanned requests! Would recommend David to anyone asking and will book him again in the future.

Response from David Webb:

Thanks so much for the kind review, Stephanie! You and your guests were an absolute joy to perform for and your kindness and hospitality are much appreciated. Happy Birthday!!

Excellent and professional service! A++++

I used David's services for my wedding on October 27th, 2012. He did an absolutely fantastic job. Everything sounded great and he transitioned through the songs beautifully. He was very easy to get in contact with and was very accommodating as far as what he could play and what he was willing to learn to play. As a bride, you don't want to have to worry about all the miniscule details and with David, I didn't have to. He made a ceremony music lineup for me and put my mind at ease with his promptness. He is very talented, has a lot of experience and does GREAT work! I would absolutely recommend using Mr. Webb as a pianist at your event.

Talented and So Easy to work with!

David and his jazz band, including a drummer and a bassist, performed at the grand opening of a new Starbucks at USAA. Before the apperance, he was in constant communication with me to insure he had all the information he needed and would be prepared. Since we are in a corporate environment, one of our biggest concerns was people would complain about noise. David assured me that they could adjust the volume if need be. After about 20 mins of them playing, I got a phone call (expecting it to be someone asking us to keep in down...) Instead it was an employee who wanted David's contact info so they could book them for another gig!! Between the fair price, the great feedback we got, and how easy it was to work with David and his friends, we would certainly recomend this musician to others!!

Review by J.S.

We hired David Webb to provide holiday background music at our office building tenant holiday luncheon. The music not only sounded great, but our tenants loved the added feature while enjoying their lunch. David is a very talented musician. He was professional, arrived on time, and was self-sufficient in setting up his equipment for the gig. I would highly recommend using David for your next event. We definately will.

Overview

My task is to provide a pleasant and aethstically pleasing experience. Often, my job is to simply be ambient/background music for parties or gatherings. I play a wide repetoire of styles and my goal is to make the audience awrae that I am present and offering a little something extre while at the same time allowing for conversation. I enjoy spontenaity, take requests and will have as much or as little interaction as audience members desire. I've turned piano bar gigs into full blown weekly concert series by playing my heart out and interacting with audience members.

For wedding ceremonies, I meet with clients and determine their desires. I've had brides march down the aisle to a tango, and had couples exiting to Vince Guaraldi's "Linus and Lucy",as well as an all Duke Ellington ceremony. I encourage couples to be creative in their choice of ceremony music, as it is their very special day and want the music to be a memorable part of it. I have a wide range of potential ceremony repetoire and gladly entertain all suggestions.

Additional Booking Notes

I provide my own PA (Bose L2- very compact, inobtrusive and powerful) where required for most standard house/wedding/private functions which will cover a medium ballroom sized area.

and 3 open input channels into house system:2 for keyboard, one for voice.
