Ryan and his group did a beautiful job at our event. We would definitely book them again!
We hired Ryan for our company's holiday party. He and the pianist who played at our event were phenomenal! We were impressed by their extraordinary and professional musicianship. Their jazzy holiday tunes set the perfect mood for the evening. Ryan was incredibly responsive in scheduling and booking, and the duo arrived plenty early to set up for the event. We so appreciate you playing at our party. Thank you, Ryan!
Ryan and the rest of the band were perfect! They are expert musicians and consummate professionals. They were easy to work with throughout the process and played wonderfully the day of the event.
Very easy to work with did a wonderful job
They did a great job entertaining the guest at the Christmas party.
