Marc was very accommodating and did everything we asked! Our ceremony music was non-traditional and very important to us…he took the time to learn the songs and had a great attitude! Performance couldn’t have been more perfect! I would definitely recommend to family and friends.
– Angel W.

Let’s see, where do I begin? I hired Marc Hoffman for a community Health Fair. Marc did not disappoint us. He was on time, very professional and met every expectation and more. His songs were very appropriate for the occasion. Guests where very impressed with his music and wanted to know how to contact him. The guy is awesome. I will definitely recommend Mr. Hoffman to friends, families and colleagues. Two Thumbs Up.
– Jennifer D.

Very pleased. Marc was wonderful, very talented he made my sons wedding ceremony a very special event. Many guests commented on how beautifully he played piano.
– Marybeth J.

Friendly & professional. Arrived early and played a great selection. Will hire again.
– Dane J

I can not say enough good things about Marc. Everyone at my son’s rehearsal dinner was complimenting Marc. He is very talented, professional and accommodated all my requests. I would definitely recommend him to everyone and I would definitely hire him for my next event.
– Leslie K

Marc is an awesome pianist and vocalist. My guests really enjoyed his performance during my Christmas cocktail hour. He played requested music and was very professional. I will definitely recommend and hire him again!
– Angela G

Marc was fabulous. Everyone loved his performance. He did exactly as I asked, which was refreshing in a sea of vendors who didn’t. Very talented. Very reasonable. Very Accomodating. Great experience.
– Mandy T

Marc was terrific. He was helpful, professional and personable though the whole process. His music added just what we were hoping for and helped to make our daughter’s wedding reception very successful. We would absolutely recommend him, and would hire him again if the need arises!
– Allyce P

I work out of Atlanta and planned an event in Charlotte. The hotel had a grand piano so I thought hiring a pianist for a cocktail hour would be a great addition to the agenda. The hotel mentioned that the piano was “almost” perfectly in tune. I mentioned this to Marc, and he made it a point to stop by the hotel on his own time and double check. The piano played just fine and we had a lovely cocktail hour thanks to Marc. I have already referred him to the hotel for any events looking for recommendations. I also would happily bring him to Atlanta for any future events we hold. It was a perfect transaction from start to finish.
