    Highly Recommended

    Vanessa was a wonderful musical addition to our holiday cocktail party. She played beautifully many various types of songs which we requested her to perform. She chose just the right ones from Christmas to the American song book. Her pleasant personality and professionalism made her a joy to work with. Highly recommended.
