Kirk was just GREAT in all aspects!!!!
Kirk was a great addition to our event. He added a great ambiance and our Easter Brunch guests and our staff loved it!!
Would recommend to everyone!!!
Kirk was fast to respond to my request. He incorporated any specific music requests we had. He showed up early and played for 3 hours with one break. His performance was excellent and he sounded great. I would also like to mention that he is an active duty soldier at Ft. Bliss and does this on the side. We would gladly use him again. Thanks again, Kirk!
