Simone was very accommodating to our songs list. He showed up early. He played a couple of songs that were not on the list that we agreed to, maybe he ran out of songs and didn’t want to repeat some of the songs from the list. As for his playing skills, the man plays the piano so gracefully. Such a gentle soul.

We couldn’t recommend Simone enough. Despite our very broad brief with very limited time to properly meet and debrief him, Simone did an incredible job entertaining our guests and creating a beautiful atmosphere for our wedding ceremony. Thank you. Sade & Axel
