Just letting you know, his performance was absolutely lovely at my grandmother's 85th morning tea! He has a wonderful talent and is such a delight to work with and chat to.  His piano playing gave a fantastic feel to the morning tea and my grandmother just loved it! His choice of songs was spot-on for the occasion and I would highly recommend him!
