Excellent!! Highly recommend! Actually we wished we had him play ALL the ceremony music. We opted for a song from a CD for the unity candle....everything else he played....should have had Kirk play ALL the music. Very accommodating with special requests. And an excellent value. WOW!!Sent on 09/09/2013
