New Gigmasters Review “Bruce was absolutely AMAZING!!! I Initially had my friend willing to play, and she got injured on her wrist and wasn't able to play. I have say "everything happens for a reason". I'm not glad she got hurt, but im so glad we decided on Bruce. He was the first one to respond, and his communication, is unbelievable. Never seen before! absolutely the best!! He did our whole ceremony, and it was amazing, he played all the songs we requested and when I sent him the songs we wanted, he was ALL for it !. Thank you Bruce, for a wonderful ceremony that will be remembered forever !!!! if you're looking for a pianist!! Don't look no more.BRUCEEEE Thank you Thank you !! -LESLIE O, East Bridgewater, MA 8/17

”Bruce was amazing to have at our wedding! We had a few different cultures/religions we wanted to incorporate musically, and he did so with flying colors (Jewish, Chinese, Christian/traditional classical). He truly can play anything and very beautifully too! We very much enjoyed having him perform for our ceremony and cocktail hour. He was on top of communicating with us leading up to the wedding. We emailed and texted about the music, and from the moment we had our first call, I knew I was in good hands. I felt very much at ease knowing how he had an expansive repertoire and could play pretty much anything! My husband and I have music backgrounds, so we can be rather picky when it comes to these things, and Bruce was the best!”

”Bruce played during our rehearsal dinner, his music was beautiful!” Jackie H. Sherborn, MA

We hired Bruce on short notice to play at our small wedding. He was a pleasure to deal with. As we requested,he mostly played standards from the Great American Songbook, but also learned and played specific Jewish and Latin requests. His contribution was very important to the feeling and mood of the entire day. Bruce is a consummate professional and a very nice man. -David F.  Wakefield, MA

Bruce was a pleasure to work with - he was very excited to help us bring the event to life and was a great addition overall. -Patrick B, Boston, MA  HBO WestWorld Season 2 Premier Press Event April 22nd.

I was pleased to find the Gigmaster site and to locate Bruce. Our guests were also appreciative of his music.- Peggy Holiday Party Marshfield, MA

Facebook Review: 12/1/17  

Bruce did a fabulous job playing for our ceremony and for the cocktail hour following. Several people told us afterwards how wonderful the music was. During the cocktails, a couple of people, including the oldest attendee (82) and the youngest (10) slipped out of the main reception room to return to the adjoining room where Bruce was playing and sit and listen some more. He had a broad repertoire that included many of our favorite pieces, and was kind enough to add a Schubert impromptu that had sentimental meaning for me. I would recommend Bruce to anyone looking for wedding music.

Christening Celebration

"We hired Bruce to play the piano during a special event for our daughter at the Fairmont Copley Hotel. Before the event, Bruce was very responsive and accommodating. I requested a combination of classical music, jazz, religious hymns, pop, rock and R&B (Bach, Mozart, Joe Sample, Beyoncé, Gershwin, etc.). Bruce played every single song on my long list of specific song request from many genres. The music was wonderful and we were very pleased with his performance. Our guests complimented us throughout the event. I would definitely hire Bruce again and highly recommend him to our friends and family."

"I hired Bruce for a 50th wedding anniversary party that I threw for my in-laws. Bruce played pretty much every song my mother-in-law requested, which was quite a variety. We were very impressed with Bruce's talent, our guests commented on how much they enjoyed it too. I would highly recommend hiring Bruce if you are looking for some beautiful music for your event and are not going down the typical DJ route."

"I got married this past weekend in Plymouth, MA and Bruce played for my ceremony. I did not have the pleasure of meeting him in person, but I could not have asked for a more responsive, professional, and talented musician to play for me and my husband. He sets the expectations up front and is very clear, but should any questions arise, he is thorough and prompt in his reply. I chose to create a playlist for him to play, which included a wide variety of genres, from Disney to Elvis to church hymns, and he was able to play them all. He is very organized and knows his craft/talent, so there was NO stress whatsoever in this part of the wedding planning, especially since it was one of the bigger decisions I made later in the planning process. On the wedding day, he arrived at the church and worked with my officiant and his wife (both friends of mine) for the cues. The day itself was seamless and beautiful. I received multiple compliments on the music and my officiant told me they worked well together in squaring away the cues. A big help I found in making my decision was Bruce's website. He has samples of music he plays and provides suggestions for pieces to include as part of the wedding playlist, as well as additional sites to use as resources for music. A big thank you to Bruce for helping in making our day perfect!"
