Rehearsal Dinner 

"Piano d' Amore deserves 10 stars on a five star scale! It was our lucky day when we connected with Dillon of Piano d' Amore...he is absolutely exceptional. Dillon entertained at our son's rehearsal dinner and he made the party! You name it and Dillon can play it, He sings beautifully... knows the appropriate tempo to play all night, guided us into toasts and fun filled moments. Dillon advanced our "Rose" theme to welcome our new daughter in law, and had great ideas! WONDERFUL to work with! Family and friends were amazed and asked where we found him! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this true professional...HIRE HIM you will be in for a real treat!"

Jane L. (GigMasters)

We were so impressed with your performance at the rehearsal dinner of our son and his bride this past Friday evening at the 1789 restaurant. So many guests commented to us the delightful ambiance that you created with the piano playing and they super enjoyed the many songs that all ages recognized! Thank you for your sustained and impeccable performance!

"I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Dillon and Piano d'Amore. He provided our ceremony music. He was very responsive, professional and very talented. I found him on Wedding Wire  3-4 weeks before our wedding and he was able to provide the music despite his busy schedule and the short notice. The music was absolutely perfect! Mr. Dillon nailed the songs and timing was perfect. He played the song 'A Thousand Years' by Christina Perri and several other songs. A lot of our guests were very impressed and moved to tears during the procession and ceremony. It was just what we needed for our intimate wedding. I just remember walking down the aisle and feeling that this was exactly what I'd always imagined. what can I say...It was a perfect day. I married my sweetheart, everything was perfect. For this We are eternally grateful"

The piano music was more gorgeous than I imagined and really set the mood for the ceremony and the entire wedding! Dillon was professional, and always responded very quickly to requests and messages. He was willing to work with us and wanted to accommodate our every wish for our special day! Thanks to Dillon for helping make our wedding such an amazing and memorable event!!"

"Dillon is definitely your go-to guy - Not only does he play beautiful music, but he is SO experienced with weddings! He knows a variety of beautiful songs, knows when to stop, start, increase volume or speed up, or slow down... playing for an event is REALLY difficult, because so many things can happen unexpectedly, and Dillon has the experience, tact, and ability to work with anything that comes up. Plus, he is extremely friendly and flexible .. did I mention he was super super responsive (AND REASONABLE PRICING??!) !! Top notch!"

Stephanie H. (Wedding Wire & GigMasters)


"I got married a few days ago and hired Dillon from Piano d'Amore as my ceremony musician. The ceremony music was absolutely beautiful. Dillon also did an excellent job of adjusting lengths of the songs to the progress of the ceremony. He also played during the wedding cocktail hour, which contained a very good mix of classic songs, popular songs and love songs. Everyone agreed that the piano music was excellent. The rate was also reasonable. All in all, I highly recommend Piano d'Amore for your event."

Tina W. (Wedding Wire, The Knot, & Gig Salad)


"Dillon was an important great addition to my daughter's wonderful wedding. He had great suggestions for music, but also played whatever the Bride wanted during the ceremony. Obviously he is an experienced , talented musician. Besides the ceremony, he also played during a cocktail hour while pictures were being done. Several folks complemented him and his music. An important part of our big day.....highly recommend him...you will be very satisfied."

"Dillon was an excellent addition to our outdoor wedding at the Westfields Marriott. While I was busy getting dressed for the wedding, I could hear the soothing sound of him playing classical music down below on the Sunset Terrace. The tunes brought tears to my eyes and made me realize how close I was to marrying my soul mate. Dillon was not only professional and kind, but he added Beyonce's "Love on Top" to his repertoire to make our recessional all the more special. I would recommend him 10 times over. He is a consummate professional."

Corina C. (Wedding Wire)


 "Thank you so much for providing such outstanding music during the ceremony.  Everything was so wonderful and we truly appreciate you and all of your help selecting the music, and dealing with the stress of not being able to really rehearse with Chelsea (vocal soloist)!  I will be sure to recommend you to anyone I meet that inquires for ceremony music!"

Amanda V

Ceremony and/or Cocktail Hour/Reception

“I had asked Dillon to play at my wedding ceremony and reception.  All I could say is that he made my wedding very memorable.  He is a wonderful pianist, and everyone at the wedding enjoyed listening to him play.  What made my wedding perfect was Dillon playing "The Prayer" and my sister-in-law singing as I walked down the aisle with my father.  It brought tears to the eyes of our guests.  At the reception, I had asked him to play our song for our first dance.  It was perfect.  He is a very talented and compassionate pianist and I am very thankful that he was able do this for me.  Thank you again, Dillon!”

 Kathy D. (Wedding Wire)


"Dillon was a terrific find. He provided the perfect ambiance for the occasion, mixing instrumental pieces and vocals to keep the event moving, fun, and entertaining. He was very professional, inviting my wife and me over to his house to run through the event and select the perfect songs. He was very receptive to our ideas, and he even learned a song he was not familiar with within a few days and played it perfectly. That evening, many guests commented about what a great job Dillon did. I wholeheartedly recommend him."

Brian and Lisa D. (GigMasters)


"Piano d'Amore was not only professional, responsive and courteous, but he played the piano at the Cocktail hour of our wedding reception BEAUTIFULLY. We received wonderful reviews from our guests as well. I requested him to play some traditional Bollywood tunes (from India) and provided him the piano sheets; and he played them with no trouble at all and was willing to cater to our taste in music. He receives a two thumbs up and 5 stars all around from us! Thank you, Piano d'Amore, for adding a special touch to our wedding"

Milan & Pooja (GigMasters)


"We were thrilled to have Dillon play and sing for our wedding reception. He is wonderfully talented and played a variety of music that we requested. He even took the time to visit our church, talk with our wedding coordinator, and come to set up the day prior to our wedding. He arrived early to hear my 12 year old son play violin during the musical prelude before our wedding, spoke to my son about music and played my son's special requests. He even learned a new piece that I requested for the reception! Dillon was a fabulous addition to our wedding party and I am so happy that we found him--he helped make our day special! "

Susan L (Wedding Wire)


"Your music was beautiful and exactly what we wanted.  Ken and I are still in afterglow.  For me - well I loved the first dance with everyone blowing the bubbles and then joining us.  Selecting Unchained Melody worked out so well that we could fit of that all into one song.  You know that if I have the opportunity, I will recommend you with five stars.  Again, thank you so much for making our special day even more special."

Pamela B.

Chris L. (Gig Salad)


"We want to thank you for playing at our cocktail hour on our wedding on August 8th. We received very positive feedback from our guests and my father in particular really admired your music. Thank you for learning the Indian songs as well. We really appreciate that you were able to master them before our wedding. We will definitely reach out to you if we are ever in need of a pianist again!"

Raluca I (The Knot)

Private Party
"Finest pianist, perfect for the occasion, like having a friend to set the tone for the evening. Easy to contact him, flexible, personable, large repertoire, perfect execution, easy to listen to, and enjoyed every piece he played. A true professional and gentle artist. A long evening of fine music that left us absolutely delighted with his performance. We are most grateful to Dillon for contributing to make our anniversary an unforgettable event."

Bonnie and Sergio (Gig Masters)


"We hired Dillon for my dad's 60th birthday party and HE WAS INCREDIBLE! Dillon played on the piano during the dinner and then led our guests in song until late in the evening. Dillon truly made the event an incredible success and was a true "pro" he was able to read the crowd and just did an awesome job. We have heard from back all our guests how much fun they had and we would not hesitate hiring him or recommending him for another event. Thank you Dillon!"

Jennifer C (GigMasters)


"Dillon was outstanding, offering personalized service and wonderful music. He communicated with me in advance and made sure that my parents' favorite songs were included in his song list for their party. He also learned a new song - a sentimental favorite of my mother's -- and even went the extra mile by sending me a copy of the sheet music to share with her, as she is also a musician. His exceptional piano and vocals were just great. I also appreciated the fact that he was open to sing-alongs, something that the guests at our party really enjoyed. I would hire Dillon again in a second -- and I certainly hope to hear him play again."

Rebecca J (GigMasters)


“Dillon's talent at the keyboard was evident from the beginning of the evening.  Equally nice, he chose musical selections throughout the evening that complemented the rhythm of the party.  By request, Dillon started the evening with a lovely presentation of classical music.  When the party became more celebratory and developed a 'buzz," he switched seamlessly to contemporary music.  His music added that special touch which made my mother's 100th birthday party a splendid celebration, and his rendition of "Happy Birthday" was flawless!  I would recommend Piano d'Amore for any occasion.”   

Marjorie B.


Everybody so enjoyed your music! It was fun listening to your artful playing and also singing along with you.  I will definitely be calling you in the future. Thank you so much for bringing so much joy!

Florence R.

"Everything was perfect! Dillon arrived in plenty of time for the event- a birthday party for my husband-and delighted everyone with his talent and entertainment. It was a large group, not always attentive to Dillon's skill, but the ambience was completed by his presence. We would definitely call him again."

Susan H. (GigMasters)


"Mr. Dillon was very professional from the very start and finish ,very accommodating, and communicating well.  Each song, before he begin singing, he will even narrate the story of the songs, very professional in playing the piano and has a million dollar voice like Michael Buble or Frank Sinatra.  He made my party alive with his songs.  He even sang my pilipino song so clearly and marvelous, beyond the limit of expectation.  I highly recommend to anyone looking for elegant pianist -soloist.  l salute you maestro Dillon bravo!"

Amy B. (GigMasters)

"Dillion was wonderful. He was given very little direction and was able to read the party and the change in atmosphere and Blendon beautifully. He made our night stress-free. I would recommend him absolutely! "

Lorrie S. (GigMasters)

"Dillon was Terrific!  Dillon played for annual Christmas Eve party this year. He provided carol sing a long books, which were just perfect, played beautifully and was a big hit for our party!"

Judy S. (Gig Salad)


“Dillon was a great choice for piano player at my Xmas party. I wanted it to be an informal and fun setting and he did just that. He is very pleasant and was very congenial with the guests, responding to requests gladly.”

Diane M. (GigMasters)


"We were so pleased with Dillon! He came over to see the venue about a month before the party. He then showed up 45 minutes before our event (dressed impeccably) to ensure plenty of time for his setup which certainly put us at ease! He played beautiful music and sang beautifully throughout the entire event. He took requests from the guests that evening and he even learned a new song to add to his repertoire that we had asked him about when we first met him! From beginning to end, we couldn't have asked for anything more. He did exactly what we had asked for and then some and helped to add to the elegance of our holiday cocktail party! Thank you, Dillon! "

Memorial Celebration
"Dillon provided music for my mother's memorial/life celebration. We were extremely happy with his services. His performance was very nice and set the perfect tone--my mother would have really enjoyed it. He was very responsive over email. He provided a sound system for our use during speeches, which saved us from having to rent a separate one as the venue had no system. His rates are also very reasonable--I would call him a steal!"

Jennifer C.


"Thank you so much for the great music!  You truly did honor my father and if he were there he would have turned to me and said, "You made the right choice going with this guy.  If I throw anymore events in the future and need live music, you are the person I'm going to call."

Susan M.


"DILLON WAS VERY NICE TO WORK WITH. He even went how of his way to help my grand-daughter with a piece of music she sing during the performance. His talents are very good and I will recommend him to my friends."

Daniele S. (GigMasters)

Business/Government/Organization Function 
“Dillon was amazing! He went above and beyond the call of duty to jump through the necessary hoops needed to comply with the Congressional rules for parking, loading in, etc. The music he played was perfect!

I will definitely use Dillon again and I would absolutely recommend him. Thanks, Dillon!”

"Dillon more than met our expectations. He was extremely professional and did not require any assistance to offer his performance. He was well prepared.
