Dennis was an extremely delightful musician and engaged perfectly with our guests. His charming personality and ease of character meant that he blended in with the relaxed atmosphere of the evening. He played beautifully and hope to book him again to perform on our newly restored Blüthner in the new year.

Thankyou Dennis for being part of my wedding and playing the piano so beautifully throughout the day. All the guests thoroughly enjoyed the music. Dennis is a very talented pianist and im soo glad I had booked him to play at my wedding. Dennis was very proffessional and played a range of contemporary/film and bollywood songs and everyone complimented how amazing the music was. Dennis has my highest recommendation. Thankyou.

Can't fault the man - an excellent piano player who embraced the specific set I asked of him (film scores) - arrived on time from across the country and brought no drama or problems. A great addition to our wedding day and I would highly recommend.
