And my full band:
I would recommend Bryan to anyone. He arrived on time, was so nice and easy to work with, and played a great variety of songs. My residents were so thrilled with his selection- several times, I heard some one say, "Is this X? I haven't heard this in forever!". My supervisor and Director also commented on how good he is. Between the singing, guitar, fancy harmonizing foot pedals, and harmonica, it sounded like I had a whole band! I will definitely be asking him back.
Price Range: $50+
