I decided last minute that I wanted to hire a pianist to play at my moms surprise 60th birthday party. My mom has played the piano her entire life and I figured this would be the last touch to truly make it perfect. I received many calls/quotes from GigSalad.com. Marc was unique though and I really liked his personality, sincerity, energy and laugh. I read him a list of the songs my mom likes and he knew quite a few of them. He knows a Ton of music. He even took a last minute request and learned cords for one of her favorite songs. Marc was on time day of the party and while the chaos of setting up and getting ready for my mom to come in for the surprise, Marc played softly in the background. There was a point where I received "feedback" from a guest that he could not hear well, so I asked Marc if he could play a little softer and he kindly smiled and obliged. Marc interacted well with all of the guests and allowed them to sing along and dance too. He does not have that "holier than thou" attitude that a lot of musicians have. Marc added so much life to this very special birthday for my mom. She cannot stop talking about him and we will undoubtedly hire him for a future event. Cannot recommend him enough. We got so lucky. Thank you so much, Marc... you were truly amazing.
Hired as: Pianist
