Response from Hire Papa Bavarian Accordionist:
Hey Joseph! Thank you so much for the opportunity to entertain your family and friends! It was my absolute pleasure! Best wishes, Papa Bavarian
We cannot say enough good things about our experience with Papa Bavarian. From the first contact--very easily reachable and professional communications the whole way through. To the actual party where we had him stroll and sing around the office at our beer party. Fun, lively, engaging and personable, we'll definitely be re-hiring for way more occasions!
Papa Joe couldn't have been more professional! He played German music and put other songs into his performance. Our members were dancing and having a wonderful time. We will use him again!
Thank you GigSalad!
Papa Bavarian really added to our evening. He understood our goals and the music we wanted and it really made our intimate dinner for 40 very special. He was polite and friendly and answered all our questions before the evening. A true professional.
Josh was personable, very energetic and entertaining. He contributed to a very successful evening of celebrating.
Loved the romantic songs played on the mandolin. Your serenade to the "birthday girl" was wonderful and added a special touch to the party. A great voice with a rich tone. Professional, talented and charming. Would definitely re-hire for our next party.
