Josh was our musician on our wedding day. He played at both the church service as accompanist and soloist, and then played at the reception afterwards. He was very professional, as well as friendly and approachable, and had no issues with the breadth and depth of the repertoire required, from traditional church hymns, and the Well-Tempered Clavier through to well known classical and jazz standards.

Thank you for playing! Best accompanist I’ve had
