I was looking for some instrumentslmusic for my outdoor wedding Sept 28th of this year and contacted Frank when I heard his samples of YouTube videos. I knew he would be perfect. He played classical music when people were being seated andI asked him if he could learn 2 songs specifically for the ceremony and he nailed it! ( Athousand years and tale as old as time )I am a musician myself and can really appreciate quality music. I am also an Activity Coordinator at a retirement home and have already booked him for a Christmas entertainment. Frank is a great choice for your music venue!Sent on 16/10/2019

Hired for many events
The picture I've attached here is me standing beside him about 7 months pregnant. My work put on a baby shower for me (I am the Activity Coordinator at guelph Lake Commons). We held the event outside because of Covid and everyone wore masks. Frank's music was a beautiful classical touch in the background, even the residents had asked for him to come back to perform ( we hired him for background christmas music too for our Annual Christmas Bazaar) YOu may also check out my previous review I wrote on here as I hired him for my wedding ceremony. Just the other day I finally got around to watching my wedding on video and of course the music for my back yard wedding was absolutely beautiful. If anyone needs a reference personally, I'd be happy to chat about my experience with Frank and his sincere music talent and professionalism. No one should pass him up, he is also very reasonable priced and affordable.Sent on 07/08/2020

Very professional classical musician
Frank had no problems working with our venue. He was at the ceremony setting up before any guests had arrived! He arranged songs for us and played them perfectly and at the right times, including my walk-out song. Afterwards he played for an hour for a quick cocktail reception while we were getting photos done. Our guests were blown away by his ability! Frank was always accepting of feedback and communicated with us before the wedding to make sure the songs were perfect. He even sent us videos. Thanks so much for helping us Frank on our big day!Sent on 26/10/2020
