Ernest was just perfect for our event, a retirement party. We wanted some lovely background jazz music for people to mix and mingle. Ernest's playing was excellent and he really understood what was needed--the musical selections, volume, his placement in the room, everything. He was incredibly professional--arrived early, set himself up, and was a lovely but unobtrusive presence at the celebration, just what was needed. We would all recommend him highly and several people asked for his card afterwards.
