We hired Kala to provide the music for a memorial service yesterday and she was fabulous. She was well prepared, professional and worked beautifully with very little direction which we greatly appreciated! Thank you. We highly recommend working with her.
Response from Kala Farnham:
Thank you for your review Janet - It was a pleasure to meet you and work with you!
Kala's talent, flexibility, and professionalism gave me such peace of mind when arranging the ceremony music for our wedding on 6/22/14. Kala was quick to respond to emails, willing to learn new songs that I requested, understanding of me changing my mind every few seconds, and also worked closely with a cousin whom was singing at the ceremony, leaving me out as a middleman and instilling confidence that she knew what she was doing. At the actual ceremony, Kala provided beautiful piano music and did an amazing job. I highly recommend her for any event.
Response from Kala Farnham:
Thank you for the positive review. It was a pleasure working with you ~ Congratulations on your marriage!
As we planned our wedding, we realised we did not love the musician at our church. I came to gigsalad to find someone to sing at our church wedding. After speaking with Kala, but only listening to a few of her songs on YouTube we decided to book with her.
She was so helpful in the process of picking songs. I changed my mind too many times but she was so accommodating.
When she started to sing at the ceremony my groom and I had to exchange a glance. She was amazing!! We were so impressed. After the ceremony people kept asking where we had found her!
We highly recommend Kala. She was wonderful.
