My brother and I wanted to give our parents a 50th wedding anniversary party. The party would be held in Gainesville, Florida (where my parents live) yet both my brother and I live out of town. Obviously, this made it diffult, so I knew I had to rely heavily on recommendations. I did know exactly how I wanted the party.....elegant and very intimate....even if it was for 85 guests. I did not want the tone of the party to be loud or overwhelming. I decided on a pianist and one of the vendors that I had already hired suggested Eric Redmond. I listened to his music on his website and was sold. I didn't want any awkward moments throughout the evening as there was alot of things planned. There was a cocktail hour, buffet dinner, slideshow, renewing their vows, , toasts etc. I was very concerned about the evening "flowing", and Eric assured me that there would be no awkward lulls. At times his music was in the fore-front and other times it served as background music. It was perfect. He is very easy to work with and his piano playing is beautiful, so and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to hire a professional and accomplished pianist. He certainly helped make our evening one to remember.
