Excellent experience with Wendy. She was always quick to communicate with us and played exceptionally well as well as playing the songs that we said we'd like. Extremely professional and would not hesitate to recommend her again for any events in the future.

Wendy arrived in plenty of time and was enjoyed by our guests. We felt the backing track was a bit heavy and would have liked some solo tunes without the backing so we could really appreciate her playing.
