Jonny Imerman, Donna and Ed Collins, Imerman Angels Wings of Hope Gala

“Ed Collins supports the mission of Imerman Angels in many ways including playing the piano during our annual Imerman Angels Wings of Hope Gala reception.  His beautiful selection of music enhanced our Gala with easy listening and fun songs as our supporters networked, mingled and bid on silent auction items.   We received many comments on the enjoyable entertainment and look forward to having Ed play for our events in the future.     Ed, along with his wife Donna who is one of our Imerman Angels, are avid supporters of Imerman Angels.   We are proud to recommend Ed’s piano entertainment for any gala, corporate or social event.”   Jonny Imerman, Founder, Imerman Angels

“Ed Collins has played piano for our residents at Lexington Eastgate Manor for years.  Our residents truly enjoy when he plays in our dining room during meals. The residents report how beautiful Ed plays and how much they enjoy his wonderful personality.   Having senior care experience, I can say Ed’s music can adapt to any environment with great levels of satisfaction.  We highly recommend having Ed play in any community.”  Jason Benedict, Executive Director, Eastgate Manor  847-458-2800

“Ed Collins is a very talented musician. His piano playing is tantalizing and melodic.  His style is versatile matching all venues; weddings, clubs, commercial events and house parties. We hired him for commercial events and received so many positive comments. When it came to our wedding there was no other choice than Ed Collins to perform the intricate selections we chose in addition to accompanying an Opera singer. We strongly recommend Ed Collins if you’re looking for some great piano music at your restaurant, night club, house party or wedding.”  Sue and Bill Kowalski (Veritas Meeting Solutions) 

“Ed Collins recently performed at a very high level VIP dinner in conjunction with my Annual Human Resources Conference.  His piano repertoire included a variety of tunes that appealed to all ages – everything from background dinner music to traditional tunes and even a few that made you kick-up-your-heels!   Consider using him for any corporate or special event – I know we will!”  Wanda Skrzypczak, Meetings By Design

“Ed is an amazingly talented pianist. We can’t say enough about him and the beautiful music he helped us to select that set the perfect ambiance during the Cocktail Hour at our daughter’s wedding reception. Ed’s attention to details including visiting our venue in advance to assess the piano being provided, the room and the acoustics, and any sound equipment that might be needed was truly appreciated. We received numerous positive comments from our guests as well. Thank you, Ed for playing a role in making this a memorable evening for all of us.”  John and Sandy Pianetto

“Ed Collins played piano songs for our retirement community as our residents dined outside in our courtyard and inside in our dining rooms.  Our members enjoyed his song selections and performances.”     Jill Lund, Director of EngAGE, The Garlands of Barrington

“Ed Collins was the pianist for the cocktail hour at our daughter’s wedding reception.  He chose a thoughtful selection of songs appropriate for the occasion including one to make my husband cry…Daddy’s Little Girl.  Thanks for a great event, Ed.” Robin and George Benas
