Thank you so much Erin. It was an honor and a pleasure to serve you.
Troy did an amazing job providing the music for our cocktail hour. He knew several songs by heart that I requested and was willing to learn songs that he didn't know. He dressed very professional which was sincerely appreciated as we had a formal wedding. We would like to thank Troy for providing such beautiful music for our special day!!
Response from Enjoy with Troy:
Amanda and Evan,
It was much fun and indeed an honor to provide you with cocktail music for your special day. I had the pleasure of taking a number of personal music requests and setting the ambiance for all to enjoy. i saw many smiles and you have a wonderful family. Thanks for your impeccable hospitality and kindness.
Your Piano Man,
My mothers birthday was quickly approaching and instead of sending her flower (which she doesn't like, but grins and bears when people send them to her), I decided to do something a little bit different.
A singing telegram was the original idea, but it turned in a touching, thoughtful and memorable performance!
Troy was extraordinary good at communicating. Looking at every detail and confirming at each step to insure that he had all of the correct information.
He came with great ideas and was extremely flexible.
Did I mention that I called him same day? Well I did - and he delivered.
He is a truly stand up guy and I would highly recommend his services.
Response from Enjoy with Troy:
It was an honor to provide you and your family with a fun and energetic singing telegram. I loved bringing happy smiles to your Mom and true memories. Thanks again Joe. Kind regards.
Your Singing Telegram Man,
Enjoy with Troy
Troy was very easy to work with. He was interactive with our audience when appropriate and had a wonderful selection of songs. A wonderful pianist!
Response from Enjoy with Troy:
It was an honor to be part of your special evening for Van Meter at Elmcrest Country Club, Cedar Rapids, IA. Thanks for the beautiful words and inviting me to be your piano entertainment.
Enjoy with Troy
Troy Harris is the epitome of professionalism. We wanted live piano music at our cocktail style wedding reception and were delighted to find Troy. The songs we selected from his extensive playlist were the perfect background to our fall reception. He was responsive and flexible during planning, arrived right on time and was very personable and friendly during his performance. We were impressed with his piano playing and would recommend his services to anyone!
Mary & Mike - Ames, IA
Troy did a fantastic job playing at our wedding ceremony in June 2013. He was great to work with and was very accommodating to our busy schedules in the few weeks prior to the wedding. With short notice, we requested a special piece of music written by my husband’s grandmother to be played at the ceremony and Troy was able to learn it quickly and play it perfectly. It meant so much to us and just shows how Troy went above and beyond to make our day truly special!
We used Troy for our outdoor wedding in June 2011. He was very professional leading up to the event and gave great suggestions for music choices since I was not familiar with all the music. It started to rain right before our event and it was too late to move to our ceremony so Troy graciously sat in the rain and played for us. We had many compliments on his choices and abilities. Would def. reccomend and use agian.
Troy really knows how to relate to his audience and tailor the music to the event. He engages the crowd and they respond with applause. Making a request is not a problem and if you would like him to sing, jut let it be known. His piano skills are incredible. How can one person remember that much music and get it so right? You would not be disappointed with hiring Troy. He is worth the very reasonable price that is requested. He always has a smile on his face and you can tell that HE really enjoys bringing joy to others.

In some cases I may need electrical access for piano keyboard.
I gladly recommend Troy Harris as an organist. He was the organist at our wedding. He played well.He was polite, punctual and professional. He contributed positively to our special day.
We really enjoyed Troy playing at our Wedding in October of 2009! He did an amazing job and played so beautifully! At the last minute, I became a "stresed out" Bride and he was so calm and had great ideas! At first I was going to just have a CD player and make a CD to play at the Ceremony, but let me tell you, I was so glad afterward that I went with live music, it sounded so wonderful! I was crying at the rehearsal because everything sounded so good! Everything went so smooth with the music and we are so glad we hired him!! We would HIGHLY recommend him for ANY occasion! He was GREAT to work with!! :)
We were fortunate to be able to enjoy Troy’s “Magic Fingers” at two functions in our home-a wedding and an open house. Troy did a superb job at both affairs, and we would not hesitate to either employ his services again, or recommend him to others. May you be as fortunate as we were to have him available for your listening pleasure.
"Troy has entertained the guests at Red Crow Grille with his piano since July 2003. Not only is Troy extremely reliable but id talented in a variety of genres. Our guests appreciate being able to request that special song. Troy is extremely knowledgeable and most willing to play what ever the occasion calls for. It’s a pleasure to be able to give our guests the atmosphere that Troy provides with his music.”
"Dave and I loved having Troy play at our outside ceremony. The music was lovely and we couldn’t have asked for anything better. He did a really nice version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, which is what we asked him to play. He also had no problem learning a new song for my unity candle lighting. We even went and enjoyed his music at the Red Crow! Troy was very friendly to talk to and we could tell he did everything he could to make our day musically special! Thanks again! We will always cherish the memory and the beautiful display of music that went with our day!"
"We wanted live music at our wedding and brunch reception instead of having music from cds or a dj. This turned out to be a great decision on our part! Troy plays beautifully and best of all, can play anything you ask him to! Our guests loved Troy's piano playing and were impressed and excited that we had live music at the reception. He is very conscientious, proffessional and punctual and will work with you and your officiant to give you the ceremony of your dreams. There is a difference between people who play because they have to and those who WANT to. You can tell that Troy loves to play because you can hear it in the music he brings to life. I would hire him again in a heartbeat."
"We hired Troy for our July 5th wedding ceremony, and we were absolutely thrilled with the results. I was very unprepared when it came to music selections, and Troy worked very patiently with me. He has hundreds of songs memorized, and he did a great job of learning my favorites. I feel he went above and beyond to make my special day exactly what I dreamed of. He's very professional, has a lot of experience, very affordable, and he's friendly and easy to work with! All my guests commented on how lovely the music was. I will recommend Troy every chance I get!"
