Scarto has been booked for my company countless times the past years, we love to have him play. His mix of jazz and blues, and mixing new songs into the old style is very cool, later on he gets the party going with his boogie woogie and solos from the sax player. it’s a really great evenings entertainment. Don't hesitate and book him!

Paul Scarto has played several events for me over the past 2 years. He is always very professional and can play almost anything. I particular enjoy his boogie woogie and blues gigs which gets everyone dancing, but he is very good at the easy Jazz songs too. He has a warmth to his voice and can play the piano very well. I would definitely recommend him
