After this company Christmas party...Keith Danon, the owner of Music As You Like It called me to say that he would never be able to work with me again. Why? Simply because of this picture showing happy satisfied clients holding the music cds that they bought from me after I was already done performing at their party. Since 1973, Music As You Like It has been accustomed to dealing with nameless, faceless, shy musicians with no personality. They charge an exorbitant fee to YOU while they pay a fraction of that to the performer. It's no wonder that they are old, rich, and out of touch.
