"The trio played beautiful arrangements for the patrons listening pleasure. They also kept the sound at a level that the guests could enjoy talking to each other, something that often is difficult at a social event. That was very appreciated by the guests and I received many comments about the great music. It was a wonderful event, and your musicians contributed to its success."
