Guests are still raving about the music!

If you are looking for a sign to book Russell for your next event- this is it! What an amazing musician and person.

My husband and I just finished an intimate 50 person wedding this past weekend and were blown away by our experience with Russell. Our experience working with him from first meeting to the actual event was above and beyond our expectations. We knew that we did not want a tradiitonal DJ, as our vibe was less of a dance party and more about ambient music. We were not dissapointed! Not only did Russell learn a special requested song for our ceremony, but he even incorporated some Greek music, found a musician that played mandolin and guitar, and organized additional music requested 2 weeks prior to the event. He was also a great resource for our officiant and family, as he provided sound and mic support for the ceremony and reception as well. Guests are still raving about the trio- their fun demeanor and talented musicianship.

Russell- thank you to you and your talented colleagues for making our day so magical!

Amazing Musician and Easy Communication

We had Russell as our pianist for our wedding ceremony in Bethesda, MD. During wedding planning, he was very responsive and flexible in communication back and forth on song selection, with him sending a helpful playlist of starting suggestions from a large repertoire and ultimately learning pieces we selected as well. He can play pretty much anything. Our ceremony venue had a piano and an organ and he easily switched to organ for the postlude which was amazing. He played for the Prelude, Processional, Bride's Entrance, a Hymn, and the Recessional. During the wedding, he was very smooth in transitions like switching from the wedding party entrances to a separate song for the bride.

He was incredible! Highly recommend! This was such a stress-free choice for us, knowing we had someone we could trust.

Excellence in All Areas

Russell played the piano for our outdoor ceremony and did a flawless job. It was such a joy to have him at our wedding! Not only did he perform seamlessly, we had zero concerns or worries with him at the piano. His confidence, professionalism, timeliness and kind demeanor made the entire experience simply excellent. Additionally, whereas other musicians have only a specific repertoire from which to select music, we were able to request precisely what we wanted and Russell was able to deliver, with excellence. We would not hesitate to recommend Russell -- having him perform at our wedding was a wonderful decision.
