We had a black tie do and Ross was beautifully turned out for the occasion. The baby grand shell made it all the more fitting and Ross was super. The music was perfect, his manner was absolutely charming, people commented on what a mice person he was as well as a super pianist. Nothing was too much trouble for him. I’m so pleased we chose him. I knew I didn’t have to worry about that part of the evening as he had it all in hand. I would definitely like to use him again, although such parties are not an every day thing, sadly! Thank you Ross-I hope you got home safely after such a long day of it. You transformed and lifted our evening from a dinner party into a really special event👍😁😇🙏

We had a brilliant day, it was all so perfect - including yourself and the music. I’m just sorry I didn’t get a chance to say thank you in person! Will definitely recommend you to anyone who is looking for a wedding musician.

Ross was an amazing addition to our wedding and his playing complimented our day perfectly. He was not phased by any of our requests, was relaxed and professional and looked as if he really enjoyed being part of the day - something that really made his performances special. Thank you Ross!
