"Cheri was great . . . She arrived early and was very professional. She picked a great mix of tunes for background music-- just right for our age range. Many of our guests commented on how nice the music was!"
"Thank you for adding that wonderful dimension of music to our wedding festivities. Many nice compliments from our guests. You did a terrific job."
"Absolutely the best (Christmas singalong) ever -- thanks to your usual brilliance, flexibility, and energy . . . You were exceptional as always, and it was so great of you to just go with the flow. Look forward to next year!"
"Cheri is a real prize at a party. She can do beautiful background but if anyone wants to sing, she goes into action. At my party, people gathered around to sing some old doo-wop girl group songs and she jumped in with an alto part. Ditto Gershwin and Porter standards. A classical pianist with great jazz chops and a Lutheran church music director as well - she's got it all. Loved her, can't wait to get her back."
"Cheri was friendly and responsive before the event, following up to ensure we were set. She arrived early and her warm up entertained our early arrival guests beautifully. Cheri's playing was lovely and exactly what was needed for our reception. I would definitely hire Cheri again - she is low maintenance for me the event planner, but a meticulous artist who obviously enjoys what she does.”
"Cheri was a great addition to our Twins-themed company picnic! She came prepared to entertain a crowd of 600 guests. Her enthusiam and professionalism shined through all night. I would definitely recommend her for future events."
"I cannot thank you enough for adding to M’s special day. Your accommodation of her quirky song choices was great. Many people commented on your beautiful playing at the reception as well. It was the perfect added touch.”
