Yes it all went very well, after a bit of stress a few days before!
Santiago was great, and the music he provided was perfect for what we wanted during that part of the day. We'd definitely recommend him for any similar performances.

Just to let you know what a fantastic job Santiago did for us at the ODPG Conference dinner last night. He was much appreciated by the delegates and the perfect choice for our event. He communicated well with us in the lead up, and was very professional on the day, and we're very glad we found him!
