Our occasion was a 25th wedding anniversary party. We wanted to celebrate in style and create an occasion that would stay in the memory for a long time. Jazz played live on the piano creates an informal atmosphere that helps people relax and is that bit special. Toby's playing was excellent - as a musician I wish I could have just sat and listened. Also the level of professional service was very good: very friendly and easy to talk to. All in all, Toby has helped to make this a memory we will treasure.
Nick Ransford, Warwickshire.

Toby played jazz piano during the drinks reception at a black tie ball for the Birmingham Trainee Solicitors' Society in 2010. He was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He chose his own repertoire to fit the theme of the evening, liaised well with the venue staff and played wonderfully on the evening. He was reassuringly professional and fitted in seamlessly with the organisation of the event. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
