I would like to congratulate you on your style and expertise. Apart from the ability to put your own stamp on all the songs you performed on piano and guitar, I loved your interaction with the audience. It’s not enough these days to be able to play, you need to play what they want and when they want it. That’s what you do.

My wife and I were blown away when we went for a quiet drink after dinner, and there you were playing the guitar, singing, and setting a great mood under the stars..

Well done and good luck with the future. I’m sure you will be very busy with a talent like that.
