Antonio was awesome! His music was like having candy for your ears!
Very professional and talented. Easy to work with and very flexible.
Antonio was a wonderful performer, and we would love to hire him again! He kept the audience engaged and offered a variety of music across a few different genres. He understood the needs of the group (Alzheimer's and Dementia) and was able to cater the performance to their tastes.
Antonio was incredibly helpful during our event. He came on time and prepared. He knew the music well and was flexible when we wanted to make adjustments. I would highly recommend antonio if you want your event to go smoothly.
We decided to add an accordion player to our Italian-themed party as an extra, over-the-top suprise. Antonio is a very talented musician and did a wonderful job of entertaining our guests. One of our friends, a professional singer with opera training, even sang with him, which became a highlight of the party! Antonio was a pleasure to work with and we were completely satisfied.
Antonio was professional and worked with me on my elaborate request.
