We hired Troy for our July 5th wedding ceremony, and we were absolutely thrilled with the results. I was very unprepared when it came to music selections, and Troy worked very patiently with me. He has hundreds of songs memorized, and he did a great job of learning my favorites. I feel he went above and beyond to make my special day exactly what I dreamed of. He’s very professional, has a lot of experience, very affordable, and he’s friendly and easy to work with! All my guests commented on how lovely the music was. I will recommend Troy every chance I get!
Nicholas and Elizabeth Menke, Rockford, IL
Dave and I loved having Troy play at our outside ceremony. The music was lovely and we couldn’t have asked for anything better. He did a really nice version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, which is what we asked him to play. He also had no problem learning a new song for my unity candle lighting. We even went and enjoyed his music at the Red Crow! Troy was very friendly to talk to and we could tell he did everything he could to make our day musically special! Thanks again! We will always cherish the memory and the beautiful display of music that went with our day!
David and Sarah Fritch, East Moline, IL
We wanted live music at our wedding and brunch reception instead of having music from CDs or a DJ. This turned out to be a great decision on our part! Troy plays beautifully and best of all, can play anything you ask him to! Our guests loved Troy's piano playing and were impressed and excited that we had live music at the reception. He is very conscientious, professional and punctual and will work with you and your officiant to give you the ceremony of your dreams. There is a difference between people who play because they have to and those who WANT to. You can tell that Troy loves to play because you can hear it in the music he brings to life. I would hire him again in a heartbeat.

Troy – Just a brief note to tell you how much our group enjoyed your performance at our recent Christmas party. Your song selection and presentation was very professional and made for a great night for our attendees.
Gary Lundvall. Executive Director, Mechanical Contractor’s Association
Thanks to Troy we are treated regularly to charming performances at the piano.
His animated presentation is contagious with his audience, even for those with Alzheimer's disease.
Judy Dejonghe, Activity Director, Country House Residence, Davenport, IA
Just a note to THANK YOU for the excellent performance you provided at our father’s 90th birthday celebration in July. As our facility here at The Manor in Bettendorf provides a very nice grand piano, it was a natural for us to engage a pianist for our celebration. Fortunately, we had dinner at Jumer’s and heard you play and were able to engage your services for our function. It is very difficult to please everyone when your party ranges in ages from 20’s to 90’s. But everyone at the event had nothing but praise for the entertainment. It was enjoyed by all. Your repertoire covered every age of music appreciation. Again thank you for sharing your talent with us. It was such a pleasure and you more than complimented the event.
Carol McClean, The Manor, Bettendorf, IA
We really enjoyed Troy playing at our Wedding in October of 2009! He did an amazing job and played so beautifully! At the last minute, I became a "stressed out" Bride and he was so calm and had great ideas! At first I was going to just have a cd player and make a cd to play at the Ceremony, but let me tell you, I was so glad afterward that I went with live music, it sounded so wonderful! I was crying at the rehearsal because everything sounded so good! Everything went so smooth with the music and we are so glad we hired him!! We would HIGHLY recommend him for ANY occasion! He was GREAT to work with!! :)

Troy Harris is the epitome of professionalism. We wanted live piano music at our cocktail style wedding reception and were delighted to find Troy. The songs we selected from his extensive playlist were the perfect background to our fall reception. He was responsive and flexible during planning, arrived right on time and was very personable and friendly during his performance. We were impressed with his piano playing and would recommend his services to anyone!

We used Troy for our outdoor wedding in June 2011. He was very professional leading up to the event and gave great suggestions for music choices since I was not familiar with all the music. It started to rain right before our event and it was too late to move to our ceremony so Troy graciously sat in the rain and played for us. We had many compliments on his choices and abilities. Would def. reccomend and use agian.

We used Troy for our wedding and he did a wonderful job. He was very professional and easy to work with - and willing to learn new songs if you ask him to. A little on the pricey side in my opinion - but was great to work with overall.
Troy is talented, cooperative and great to work with!!
