Hi Robyn
The Piano man was good thank you.
The room was a bit noisy and the piano was down one end, so got drowned out somewhat.
Your man did well, thank you.

Dear Robyn
Apologies times ten.
My intention was not to ignore but be back with u sooner than now. Thank you for follow up and services.
Unfortunately I was not present and nor did I make out of USA due to medical issues.
My brother and sister were there and good reports all round. My mother enjoyed his music and that was the main thing.

Thank you again
Kind regards

Yes the pianist was excellent and thank you
Elizabeth Collins

HI Robyn
Thanks for the email.
I was running around in the ballroom trying to chase out a bird that had got stuck so to be honest I didn’t get to experience any of the music unfortunately!
But I heard that it was a lovely touch to the evening.

Hi Pete
All went well thanks, I’m afraid we are quite hard to get in touch with but Mike is clearly very experienced and got on with things. His performance was entirely appropriate and just what we were looking for, thanks for suggesting him.
Gloria Yehia 

Hi Pete,
yes all went well thank you. I made a comment during my speech that night that Mike would be packing up at 10pm and we could then start with real music – meaning loud pop music.
But there was no offence intended so I hope Mike was all ok with that. He is very good and clearly loves what he does.
Cheers, Geoff Gillott

Hi Pete,
Mike Walker is a true professional. His playing was exactly what we required. He was on time, a true gentleman, and did what was expected.
