Wonderful part of our wedding experience
We originally hired Pavel to play during the ceremony for the large wedding that we planned for our daughter at Loring Social. Due to the pandemic, we had to make a quick switch to an intimate backyard ceremony and reception instead. Pavel was absolutely terrific at remaining flexible and worked with us to help select appropriate music ahead of time.Sent on 07/15/2020
When we were ready to celebrate, Pavel's music made our celebration so much fun! Everyone from the bride and groom to siblings to parents to elderly grandparents raved about Pavel and his music. He truly helped us enjoy this occasion to its fullest. I look forward to hearing Pavel play soon!

Perfect Addition to Our Reception
We were seeking some special music to help set the tone for our wedding reception and dinner, and Pavel was the perfect choice. He blended beautifully into the event and setting, being the master professional that is. He played a variety of music flawlessly and with feeling, and he was considerate and easy to work with from start to finish.Sent on 09/25/2020
