Easy to work with and great performance! He was exactly what we needed. I highly recommend.
I hired Brad for a cocktail party at my home. He was fantastic. My guests really enjoyed the private concert. Cover songs were fun and his originals were great! We all had a fun time. I will definitely hire him again.
We have had Brad out to our Corporate Holiday Party two years in a row and he's a crowd favorite! His musical style is entertaining without being too much for a mix and mingle event. I've really enjoyed working with him!
He's on time, sets up and tears down efficiently. Great at responding to messages!
Brad Skistimas was very good. He was on time, played and sang beautifully, and was personable and friendly. We just needed a bigger audience.
