Roger was great. Really easy to communicate with and made every effort to make the day special for our party. Roger read the room brilliantly so the tempo always matched and was delightful to chat to during the event. Highly recommended. Thank you Roger, great job!

Roger worked with us on a pantomime and was absolutely brilliant. He can play in any style and was flexible and helpful. He is a sensitive and musical keyboard player. He adjusted to our singers requirements. I would have no hesitation in recommending Roger.
