I found Dave online and we booked him for our ceremony and cocktail hour. We sent him all of the music we wanted played, some of which were not in his list, so the sheet music had to be ordered, but he played all of them beautifully. His skills as a pianist are amazing and I was happy with everything he played. He brought to life all of the music we requested and we couldn't have been happier. He also helped us out and provided a microphone for us for the ceremony, which was great. If you're looking for beautiful music for your ceremony or event, look no further. He is definitely the real deal!
Dave Becherer was excellent! He was great to work with finding music for our wedding. I would highly recommend him!
Working with Dave for our wedding was a pleasure. His website includes an extensive list of songs in his repertoire. Our experience was exactly as advertised. Dave attended our rehearsal on Friday and performed beautifully at our wedding. If you choose Dave as your wedding pianist you will not be diappointed!
Dave was wonderful. He came to the rehearsal on Friday night which is were we met and went over the last minute details. The weddinng ceremony was flawless and he was very easy to work with. Dave also played jazz piano at the cocktail hour which everyone really enjoyed. I was very please with his services and professionalism. I would recommend him to anyone
Dave was a fantastic addition to our wedding ceremony on 5/19/12. His wedding music added a classy touch to the ceremony. He attended the rehearsal, and quickly offered advice when we struggled with some of the details as we did not have a coordinator. He offered lots of suggestions on wedding music selection, and also gave a list of songs to choose from, and even offered to learn and play any new songs we requested (for the cost of sheet music). We were on a tight budget for the wedding, and Dave delivered above and beyond the amount we paid. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a pianist for their wedding or cocktail hour..
Thank you for doing an absolutely AMAZING job at my wedding! The music was so beautiful and was beyond what I was envisioning. As soon as I stepped out onto the aisle, I heard the piano music and then saw the faces of all my family and friends, and was overcome with emotion. It honestly defined the whole atmosphere and was just incredible. I really appreciate all your preparation--working with me to figure out the unique songs for each part of the ceremony and taking the time to learn them. It's clear that you really understood what I was looking for, and you definitely delivered! Again, thank you so much for making our ceremony even more beautiful than I could have imagined.
