Simone is a true professional, believe me when I say he will light up any event with his incredible talent and charm. He played stunning music for our Valentine's evening and all the guests were amazed at this magnificent artist's ability. I encourage anyone hoping to hire a musician to look no further than Simone because he will make it a night to remember for years to come. Thank you Simone, all the best from Ahmed Al Duboni and Don Emilio restaurant.
