Response from Joe Cosas:
Thank you very much Mark! The gathering was great and it was nice to play for all of you!
We booked Joe for our wedding ceremony and he did a great job! As we are living in Germany, communication was not quite so easy, but we finally made it! Joe gave us valuable ideas for the musical parts of the ceremony and also collaborated with our female singer. He is a very talented pianist. Again, thank you very much for your performance :)
