Liz Farquhar - Director, Corporate Events and Community Investment
On behalf of the 280 Canada Post sales employees, I would like to thank you and the rest of the band for performing at our National Sales Conference Gala Dinner on February 12, 2013. We have held this Gala dinner several times, but this was the first time we hired a band to play background music during dinner and walk-up music for the awards winners. Several people commented on how much they enjoyed the upbeat music and lively energy. It brought a new level of “class” to our already special evening.
Linda Googh Enterprises, Toronto, Ontario
Linda Googh - President
Howard has been my musical director and musical contractor for over 25 years. In addition to his talents and outstanding professional ethics, Howard also displays strength in character. His skill as a musician and his resume both speak for themselves.
What cannot be recognized on paper is his attention to detail creativity, leadership, and outstanding people skills. Howard understands the meaning and importance of building strong working relationships. He is a seasoned professional that I highly recommend. Nothing beats EXPERIENCE!

Ron Baker - President
We have booked Howard both as a solo pianist and his trio on several functions, both privately and for my company. He is always well prepared.
He asks if there are any special songs that we would like to have performed. He usually asks about the itinerary for the whole event to ensure that we maximize the time he is booked. He arrives early and is always prepared.
We would recommend him for any job especially if it is an upscale event

On behalf of the Institute and its Functions Advisory Group, many thanks for your participation in its Annual Convocation Ceremony last Saturday. The Howard Lopez Trio once again did a splendid job in helping to make the afternoon a memorable occasion for our graduates, families and their friends. I also heard that Friday night was also a great success. Please thank your team. I am looking forward to working with you again, Howard. Please mark the 2016 date in your calendar and I will be in touch to confirm your availability.

On behalf of Queensway Audi, I would like to thank you very much for taking part in our event this past week. It was a great success and a large part was due to the wonderful ambiance you helped to create. From start to finish it was a joy to work with you and your team and a delight to listen to the magic you created. Thank you for sharing it with us.
Lindisfarne Productions Inc., Edmonton, Alberta
Fred Keating - Principle
Gotta tell you … I loved working with Howard Lopez and his boys! They really did give the evening a touch of class from the guests' entrance through dinner and the awards. If I had a vote, I’d vote for them as house band again now that they know the organization and the event and the MC … no need for re-orientation of a new group at the last minute … that ‘insurance/assurance’ alone could be worth the travel expense to get them to Montreal.

Sandra Baker, CEO
Howard Lopez has provided professional music services to a number of charitable fundraising events that I have run in the past several years. He brings to these events a high level of customer service, always arrives well ahead of schedule, always has the right equipment, and is set up and ready to go long before the agreed time. He always provides our guests with his warm smile, his magnificent musical skill and a friendly repartee that adds so much to the spirit of the event we are running. Simply being there in his trademark tuxedo elevates every events and makes guests feel special. He is a dream to work with and I am always delighted by the results.

100th Anniversary of the Swiss Club in Toronto - Gala Dinner and Dance
Working with Howard was a pleasure and the music and the fun entertainment he provided was a real asset to the entire evening. The vocalist Kathleen Eyman (with Swiss ancestry herself) was outstanding, even learned the Swiss national anthem in German and performed it flawlessly. The music the band played was superb and all the guests had a fabulous time all evening. We can highly recommend this band to anyone looking for good music and easy interaction with the bandleader.
Rego Realty Brokerage Inc. - Luxury Open House - Kitchener, Ontario
Daniel Young - Broker
We hired Howard to perform during a luxury open house event for our brokerage. He has a wide repertoire of classic and contemporary songs arranged for piano. His performance added a wonderful ambiance to the event, and our guests have since expressed how impressed they were with his live performance. Howard was courteous, prompt and professional in all his correspondence with us during the booking process; as well as on the event day itself.
He is a talented musician and live performer who would be an asset to any event.
