Event 14th July 2018. Paolo Coruzzi played at our annual street party and clearly he is an excellent musician. He read the crowd and played appropriate music for the mood which went from mellow to upbeat. He was very polite, professional and personable and I would definitely book him again. Thanks Paolo.
