Responsive,Respectful,Sensitive, Entertaining

By Linda A. on August 4, 2016

I requested an accordion player only two days before the event and Larry Roberts quickly responded that he was willing to play on such short notice. He was willing to drive the hour and 45 min to get to the destination. He was there ahead of time, setup and ready to play on time. Larry was respectful, well groomed and dressed appropriately. He was sensitive to the group, playing tunes he knew they would be familiar with, toning it down while they were eating, and livelier when they were ready for the dance floor. The event was at an Independent living facility, about 100 residents, averaging 85 years of age. I requested Larry to play polkas and european music as an 89th birthday gift for my Mother at the facility. He gave her just the right amount of attention while entertaining everyone. He was well received, and his personality and talents greatly appreciated!

Thanks for being such a hit at our party last weekend. I have heard so many compliments on your music and how great you did. We will definitely make sure to book you earlier next year.

– Reema H. - Weston , Florida

It was a great experience. We had a Tuscan birthday party and Larry really added to the atmosphere with his Accordian, playing Italian music and creating wonderful entertainment for the night.

– Sheree W, Boca Raton, FL

He was great! We hired Larry for an Oktoberfest for a Senior Community
and he was super entertaining and got everyone involved and even dancing.
Larry went above and beyond. We couldn't be more pleased. Thank you

– Liz F, Naples, FL

We hired Larry Roberts for our Ave Maria Oktoberfest 2009 and he was amazing. He interacted with the crowd, played the perfect variety of music, was professional and reliable. We would most definitely have him come again and recommend him to anybody!

– Tiffany M., Naples, FL

Larry was a very professional entertaining performer. Our people enjoyed dancing to his music and I also give him a lot of credit for his performance and manners. I highly would recommend Larry to anyone.

– Martha R.

Larry was great! He initiated contact with me multiple times prior to the event, he arrived early and did a great job motivating the guests to dance and enjoy the party. I would highly recommend him. He helped to make it a super party.

– Suzanne R.

Responsive, good communication, professional, accommodating

– Walt W

We hired Larry from here in New York City with the help of our subcontractor in Miami, Hastings & Hastings. Both suppliers ROCKED! Please feel confident employing Larry as a musician! He dressed in French attire (striped shirt and beret) and played the accordion for the launch of the 2007 Beaujolais Nouveau event at the Ritz. He played French songs and thrilled the crowd! Our client was pleased and it made my business, TEMPSATIONS, Look Good! Thanks, Larry!
