Scott played a good mix, ranging from show tunes for 80 year old Aunt Ellie, to singing current day pop classics. I highly recommend him!
Scott Grossman was a very nice and friendly person who mixed well with our party guests. He was a very talented pianist who entertained us and accompanied our holiday sing along!
My non-profit group wanted to add some music to the holiday meetiing/party we had planned.
Scott offered his services and was able to work well with our schedule for the event. He was responsive to messages sent on this site, arrived on time and brought his own equipment. Our members enjoyed his music. We would hire him again.
Scott arrived early to set up and played beautifully through our company winter celebration. We were happy to have him and look forward to hopefully working again in the future. Thanks, Scott!
Scott was a professional from start to finish. We collaborated across the miles to prepare for the concert I was singing at and his communications were timely and thorough. He accompanied me on piano and played so beautifully with skill and heart! It was an absolute pleasure to meet him and to perform with him. I highly recommend him for any event where you need a fine musician!!! Thank you, Scott! Best wishes, Nora B.
I hired Scott to play background music at the adult dinner reception for my son's Bar Mitzvah while a DJ entertained kids in another room entirely. He played a mix of songs that were of interest to me (we had discussed in advance the kind of music I wanted) ranging from show tunes to jazz, popular, and old classics. He hit the mark and it helped add to the lovely ambience of the evening. In addition, while I was running around most of the evening, he arrived and started playing without my knowing until I entered the dinner room. I will definitely enlist Scott's musical talents for any future event I host.
