Fantastic for Oktoberfest

We hired Bruce for a Family Oktoberfest at our Library. He did a fantastic job playing background music for part of the event and then participated in a storytime and parade for children. He knows how to read the atmosphere and plays accordingly. Very friendly and professional also. We look forward to working with him again.

Bruce "makes" our family Oktoberfest every year!

Bruce plays at our Oktoberfest every year and I do not think we could hold a party without him anymore! He is dependable, personable, reasonably priced AND an excellent accordion player! We cannot say enough good about him.

Oktober-Fest

We hired Bruce for an Oktober-Fest Party at our local bar. He went above and beyond our expectations. He played German drinking music and got the crowd involved in his songs! Overall he enhanced our party and made the night of many customers!

Music with soul and personality

Bruce is a wonderful musician, but above all a truly soulful person. I was looking for some sounds of home, some 6000 miles away from it, and he was more than willing to play them. He even learned a new piece of not so simple music to play at our wedding ceremony. He was always prompt, flexible, and interested in our needs. I would highly recommend him!

Bruce was Awesome!

Bruce played a dinner in the Baker-Bird Wine Cellar, a historic winery in Augusta, Kentucky. I was so impressed with his professionalism. Because, he left early from his home, he was able to arrive early to the event depite getting through three car accidents. His costume was spotless and he looked great. He was able to judge the audience's mood and play to it. The guest enjoyed his music tremedously. I look forward to seeing Bruce play again. I highly recommend Bruce.

Review by Annemarie S.

Bruce is a very talented musician with a huge heart! Prior to our event, he was willing to meet with us and discuss what we wanted for our ceremony music and how to set the perfect tone for our day with music. He made fantastic suggestions and was even willing to learn special pieces of music to make our day memorable for us and our guests. He is very gifted at the accordion and is a fun person to be around. He responded quickly to all communication and was extremely patient and kind. He was an integral part of setting the European mood for our ceremony!! Skip the boring strings and hire Bruce for your event - you will enjoy working with him so much!!!

Review by Lynne C.

Bruce provided the entertainment for my father's birthday party. He was prompt and professional. He had asked for a playlist from my father beforehand and it was amazing the number of songs he knew. My entire family, and especially my dad, thoroughly enjoyed Bruce's accordion playing. He also had a wonderful personality which added a lot to the occasion.
