Robert provided an excellent backdrop to my cocktail party and created the perfect atmosphere.

Having Robert play the piano in the foyer as we and our guest walked into our reception was so beautiful and set an ambience to welcome all. Robert's playing was professional and his selection of music fitting for the occasion.
