Testimonials and Client Comments on Billy Wray Keyboardist Pianist Performances & Ceremonial Weddings / Receptions
Billy Wray played at our wedding celebration this past week-end and was suburb. Billy was easy to work with as we had several special musical requests and the 2 others that accompanied Billy Wray at the reception were equally as good. Billy tailored the music to the guests that attended and kept the volume at a reasonable level so all could converse and mingle without being over-whelmed. We would certainly recommend Billy Wray to any and everyone and will certainly use him again. His group certainly made the evening most enjoyable - thank you Billy Wray, for making our day that much more enjoyable.

I can't express how grateful we are that you were there to play at our wedding ceremony. Your flexibility and kindness
during the last minute music selections and when working with our vocalist was so greatly appreciated. I don't think you knew, but before I walked down the aisle I managed to sneak
down the hallway near the stage door to hear you play. Your talent combined with the beautiful voice of
Alison gave me goose bumps and a few (happy) tears--really a perfect way to set the mood for one of the most important events in my life. Thank you again for everything--you're
not only a wonderful
pianist but also a wonderful person, and we were so happy to have you as part of our special day. Take care.

Billy Wray was our musician for our wedding ceremony on
September 4, 2005. The wedding was outside and having
Billy there worked out perfectly because he was able to
bring his keyboard and play music as though we were in a
church. He met with us a few months prior to the wedding
date to chose the songs and the order in which they would
be played ... we even had a special request of an Irish
song "I'll take you home again, Kathleen" and he found the
sheet music and was playing it within minutes of our
request. All of the music he played for the wedding
sounded absolutely beautiful!!! Billy also went out of
his way to bring a microphone stand for our readers and a
wireless microphone for our pastor. Billy was wonderful to
work with and did a fantastic job. I would recommend him
to anyone who needs a musician for an upcoming wedding.
Billy Wray is one of the most professional artist we have had perform at our many events across the country. J.P.King has been working with his agent Bill Ware for sometime now. I would highly recommend him for any event that you are planning. We had many compliments and a great round of applause for Mr. Wray at our Premier Real-Estate Auction last week in Harrisburg, PA. We broke real-estate records per acre in the area and had many influential people from the capitol city in attendance. The sale brought over 13.6 million and Mr. Wray performed as well as the sale that day.
We put together our wedding in a matter of six months. Doing this so quickly left little time to hash out the details on our end. We were concerned that maybe we didn't put enough time in selecting our musician. Our concerns were put at ease with Billy's professional manner and follow-up. We learned quickly during our reception that we were glad we followed our gut -- Billy and Jennifer, the female vocalist, were delightful. The music became the last of my worries on my big day and helped put me at ease seeing my guests enjoying themselves so much."
I am so glad I chose Billy to provide the music for our outdoor wedding ceremony. We met two months before the wedding to chose which songs would be played, and because I had no clue what songs are usually played at weddings, he sat there with my husband and I for an hour and just played songs until I decided which ones we liked. Billy also allowed me to have my friend, who is a professional singer, sing along with him to five songs of her choice during the pre-processional. These songs were hand picked by my friend and Billy kindly learned them for her and even showed up at the rehearsal ceremony to practice with her. Billy was great and I would recommend him to anyone who doesn't want to have any stress over their wedding ceremony music (which is EVERYONE)!

You did a wonderful job performing for our wedding ceremony. The music you performed was beautiful and added a special touch to our ceremony.
Thank you very much!
Our original pianist canceled due to health reasons three weeks before my son and daughter in law’s wedding. Billy Wray literally came on board at the last minute, learning several
unique songs that the bride and groom had been counting on as part of the ceremony, including one that we could not find sheet music for. The wedding ceremony and cocktail hour came off without a
hitch. None of the guests would have known that Billy was a last minute replacement. Not only is he an accomplished musician, he's also a professional in every sense of the word. We
would enthusiastically recommend Billy Wray for your wedding as well as other important occasions.

Dear Mr. Wray,
I again want to thank you for your program presentation on Wednesday at AARP.
It was exactly what we needed to calm down everyone after the medical emergency of one of our members. By the way, he is fine.
I am going to put you on our current list of programs since you were enjoyed by all.
