I saw Paul Scarto perform at The Parrot bar in the Waldorf hotel. Absolutely amazing! He could play and sing basically everything. I particular liked his Queen and Michael Jackson, he has a very strong voice so he can pull it off well. Look forward to seeing him again

We hired Paul’s Pianobar show for a Wedding in Mo I rana in Norway August 11 2018 He is well known in the pianobars in the country and we were very happy we were able to hire him with drums. The client was very happy with his show as he played all music from rock en roll to new songs, he is very talented and we hope to work with him again!!
