Personalized gift

Ernest was flexible, so it was well prepared. Showbird honestly did nothing except the website and connection. The rest we did ourselves. Super nice personalized gift!!! Really nice to give. And who it was meant for was really touched

Magnificent medieval music

Ernest first performed on Klingelpoort for a small group of residents. They found it beautiful all those medieval songs with lute. Some residents could sing along. Then Ernest went to Hoogstede because there was the biggest group of residents. A compliment that Ernest was so flexible!

Was very nice and cozy.

Another nice performance by the mistreel with lute. He played music at every table inside during the high tea. Afterwards he sang medieval songs for the residents outside. There is plenty of singing and clapping.

The residents enjoyed it!

Because of the corona circumstances he could not sing, only make music. Together with the Lakekeeper we had booked he went to the living quarters It was also nice that he brought his girlfriend. She danced and clapped along in a medieval outfit Later that day the weather was better and they played and danced four songs with the lute for a small group of residents outside in the courtyard garden.

A Pink Floyd Serenade

Ernest had written a song in the style of Pink Floyd, especially on request. With matching outfit and an other instrument as he performs as a troubadour. This was greatly appreciated. Well done!

Online interaction

Beautiful song written and performed with full conviction (and outfit). A song that completely suited the group he was performing it for. He clearly studied us in depth and had pleasant contact beforehand. Ernest also looked for interaction by letting us sing along through zoom. Great work, kudos!

Genius

Ernest has written a song for an acquaintance who could go home again after a difficult time in the hospital. A memorable fact which deserves a song. Ernest has asked some questions about this person by e-mail and with that he started working. It was a great success. Thank you Ernest!

Ernest did great!

I had hired the Solo Serenade Service (online) as a Sinterklaas surprise for my parents and he did a fantastic job. Ernest is a professional who communicates clearly and the possibilities are endless. In advance he asks for information about the persons in question and you can even choose the genre of the serenade. The end result should be there. Technically you don't have to worry either, he makes time to test everything a day in advance through e.g. Skype so that everything runs smoothly on the day itself.

Cerenade and extra song

YELLOW THROAT. A few days before my mother-in-law's corona birthday I saw this nice musical option! Ernest nervously and several times contacted me to discuss the wishes and how we could make a good connection. This morning was the serenade for her 65th birthday. At the agreed time he called neatly via Skype. He explained the surprise and knew what nice words to say about the birthday boy and dressed it up. Short and powerful =. Start with a Happy birthday, Serenade (We practiced the chorus together so everyone could sing along, text I got later! ) ...children's song for the kids. ''Put on your ball gown''. The lyrics just hit my mother-in-law. Guitar. I don't understand how this act is so cheap. And further on in the booking I even got an extra discount. So don't be afraid of extra costs!

Musical congratulations for Sarah

My sister's 50th birthday had to be celebrated online. "Troubadour" Ernest brought an extra special touch with his shrewd personal musical notes in matching outfit. A few minutes of listening, clapping and singing along and that makes it more than just another online drink. Compliments and a special thank you from Sarah!
