We asked Linda to play at mom's graveside service to commemorate moms accordion playing history. She played exactly what we asked on queue including some hymns she was not familiar with and was fantastic.
Response from Linda Herman:
Happy I could bring back great memories of your mom.
Linda played beautifully! She arrived in plenty of time to be ready to play.. we couldn't have been any happier!!
Response from Linda Herman:
I had Linda play for my mom's 99th birthday and am having her for Mom's 100th in August. She knows how to play to the audience.
I found Linda thru Gig Salad. She provided music for my son's 1st communion party. She was on time, very professional, and did a great job. We even had her play an extra half hour. She played a variety of music on an accordion like I've never heard before. All my guests enjoyed it, even the kids. Thanks Linda.
We had Linda play for our Columbus Day event. She strolled with the accordion playing a variety of music on an amazing accordion. think she said it was a Roland accoridon. Very high tech. She was prompt. Did a great job for our event.
Very prompt and professional. Played music for our Octoberfest party. We wanted background music so we could talk but still hear music. Wonderful!!! She can play other types of music also. Not just German.
I got Linda thru Gig Salad for my grandmother's 99th birthday. Just a small gathering. Linda made the party very special for her. She played all the music my grandmother requested and brought a big smile to her face.
We have worked with Linda for years. She is very professional. Has excellent equipment. Always on time. Gives us our money's worth. Plays music that appeals to a wide audience.

RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEW - 90th birthday party
I just finished saying a set of prayers of thanksgiving for what an exceptionally fun party it turned out to be today. Mom and Mary Jo DANCING THE POLKA to live accordion music? Dad singing happy birthday TO HIMSELF and chuckling through the song? As I said to some of you before you left, this was the first gathering in years where both Mom and Dad seemed relaxed enough to simply enjoy everyone's company, and so the rest of us could relax and enjoy it, too. I don't think I've seen Mom and Dad so happy together since their 50th Anniversary party more than 14 years ago.
Thank you to everyone who made this day possible and so enjoyable. Thanks to Stan and Mary for doing the transportation tag team. Thanks to Renee for organizing the live polka serenade with Linda, and I'm so glad she hung out for a while for some beer and pizza. Thanks to Jon for pedaling all the way from Culver City, for coming early to help me get everything ready, and for cooking Grandpa's Gorgonzola Gnocchi. And thanks to everybody for helping Dad and Mom achieve a level of stability and equanimity that has allowed them to enjoy their days.
