Looking for live music that creates lots of atmosphere but does not intrude? Looking to add some elegant whimsical fun to an event? Look no further. Jonathan and his merry band of troubadours perform eclectic renditions of a giant subset of the popular songbook in and around New York City. They are comfortable playing where sensitivity to volume is paramount, they take requests and they show up on time.
