Dan is amazing and we call him each year to play at our company holiday party. From the initial contact until the last note is played, he is professional, dependable and personable. He listened to what we'd like and plays a large range of songs from classics to holiday to contemporary music. It is the perfect volume for our small room with a large group of people, and the feedback from our group is always very positive. Dan is a fabulous, talented guitarist and he is a pleasure to work with. We've used his services for three years in a row and look forward to continuing our partnership. Highly recommended!!!
Response from Dan Kyzer - Professional Guitarist:
Thanks so much for your kind words and continued support! It has been such a pleasure playing for you and your colleagues.
I hired Dan for our Showroom Grand Opening event, which was Italian themed. He showed up early for set up, dressed very professional, and communicated very professionally. His skill level and variety of music was outstanding, and I received several compliments from our party guests in regards to his music. It was the perfect touch to the evening, and just subtle enough for ambiance music in the background. We will definitely use him again for events in the future, and will pass his name along! Highly recommend.
