Response from Dana Bearror:
Thanks so much Doug! I had a blast! Talk to you soon.
Thank you Dana for providing the music for our rehearsal dinner at the North Carolina Museum of Natural History. You were professional and responsive making planning a breeze! Your willingness to move mid-event was appreciated and was critical to the success of the evening. You clearly read the crowd well and seamlessly kept the energy flowing. Everyone loved your music and would have danced into the wee hours if permitted! More than five stars are deserved. Thank you, thank you!
We had a party for 100 people at our home and wanted some music. Dana was great, just what we were looking for, lots of our guests commented on the great music. He was on time and played for 3 hours as agreed. Nice guy and super easy to work with. I’d recommend him and look forward to using him again.
Dana performed at my recent wedding in the ceremony and the cocktail hour. The music was perfect for our venue and he did a beautiful performance of "This Must Be the Place" which we requested for our processional. We also got so many compliments from our guests particularly in regards to the cocktail hour. We and all our guests really loved his performance. He was also easy to communicate with and was a professional throughout the process.
Dana was so prompt he actually beat us to the venue and was set and ready to go 30 minutes before his time. His performance was professional and fun. Our group was a church group and I had no negatives or raised eye brows. A good time was had by all!
