As my headline states - it was indeed a great show. My disappointment was in the performer's lack of attention to the needs of my event. The performer got there about 15 minutes prior to the contracted time and told me they had to go on right away because she had another show in NJ. My members were still getting their dinner so this became a rush rush period although I tried to explain that the best I could do was a 9:10 start but she was very rude and no caring about the event. I have been doing this for over 20 years and performers always leave a little wiggle room because you can't always be so exact. Once she did start (on her timetable, not mine), she cut the show to 25 min leaving the audience a little confused as the dj announced the final dance would be coming - instead it was an abrupt end. When I pulled out my contract showing her a 45 min show, she became argumentative but finally agreed to mingle with the guests for another 10 minutes. Although a great show, I will not use again. I'm not used to working with such rudeness and inconsideration for my event. If you double book an evening, plan accordingly.

Response from Anna:
First of all sorry that you are dissapointed but i must say Our agreement was 8.45pm start i started 9 pm just to make your demand to wait second of all our agreement was 30 min which i shown you then) you told me no its 45 min though it was very rude from yoyr side and not fare at all cause i have shown my agreement on gigsalad 30 min show and plus i started later than agreed i still went back and did extra 15 min just for you. I do ussually have several bookings and i do ask my customers to start on time if i can i will wait but if i cant then i need to start upon agreed time and i wasnt rude i just asked to start on time which i fidnt ivstarted 15 min later just because you were upset and i did agreed show of 30 min and plus 15 min just for you extra so i am very dissapointed with this absolutelywrong review.i am proffessional and punctual with time and no need to put false reviews.
