I wanted to say “WOW” what a great job you did at the Church and the Hall for Bianca and Marco!
You put the Priest’s worries to bed real quickly and mesmerized our guests in the evening.
I knew no one was going to interrupt your performance that night by dancing.
Your show is that good and people that were thinking of leaving before you started, stayed until the end.
You are a true performer and professional and a great individual.
We were blessed and honored to have you perform for us Saturday.
All the guests raved and many have had you perform at their events...
Looking forward to seeing you soon and again thanks so much – I am getting calls telling me the Wedding was a home run starting from the Church to the venue, the food and the entertainment.

You were absolutely amazing, like I knew you were. I had some guests who have seen you before and some who have not. But everyone was complimenting your performance.
You were absolutely stunning! You are amazing, we can't get enough. I managed not to cry all day! Even when I was saying my wedding vows, yes that's right I was dry and kept it together, deep breath, deep breath.
But when you played Hallelujah, I couldn't hold back the tears, even my fiancé said that this is the first time on that day he has seen my cry! When you play your violin it sings the most beautiful songs.
You are truly skilled in playing the violin, but what makes you unique is the way you invoke the emotion to come through when you play. And that is not something that comes from learning it in school, it comes from the heart.
You made our wedding day so special!
Thank you and I hope one day to have you at play at another event.

Just wanted to send you a short but very meaningful note, to thank you for your incredible performance at our 9th Annual Ontario Region “Hollywood North” Gala last month.
Although, amidst a major snow storm, the attendance for the event was very positive, and also your performance was outstanding. We have never experienced such a captive and mesmerized audience before. Your musical selection, matched with your dynamic and creative performance was certainly the highlight of our entire gala. They fell in love with you, and your talent indeed.
Our survey results also highlighted your performance with high marks and very positive comments.
Thank you again and again!

Thank you for making today's celebration of life a most remmeberable event, as I looked around the church today there was not a dry eye in the house when you performed. Your performance left everyone feeling overwhelmed in a very good way. Between you and the police officer in uniform, I had many people ask me who exactly was your father in law ? My answer was a good hard working man who loved his family. He would have been so humbled to have seen so many people take time out of their busy day to attend his funeral mass. Thank you again - I wish you continued success with your career. -Frank

At my sister-in-law's celebration of life, we had the distinct pleasure of listening to the musical talents of Grenville Pinto. Grenville is a brilliant musician and we were all captivated by the exquisite way in which he plays the violin. As a student of music myself, I can say that such talent springs from the perfect union of a natural gift and many years honing that talent. I can heartily recommend Grenville Pinto for anyone looking for a fabulous musician to serenade their event.

I have saved the best for last. Grenville, it took me 2 days to come up with words to describe how much having you perform on our wedding meant to the both of us. You have made our day so incredibly special and memorable, your talent is God's gift to us. We have tried to thank EVERYONE that made our amazing day come to life but your presence and your music was an absolute highlight of the night! We have been in love with your music since the first day, now it's all of our friends and families enjoying and playing your beautiful melodies.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for coming to Sacred Heart of Jesus School today. I have been a teacher for 26 years and I have never been to such a fun, energizing assembly before.
Thank you for including our choir and our students who are learning to play the violin. You gave them such an awesome opportunity and memory!
My kindergarten students were mesmerized by your music and one of my students crawled over to me to tell me she just needed to dance to your music. I told her to go for it and she started a dance party in our gym that will be go down in history!
Thank you for so enthusiastically sharing your gifts with us today.
May God continue to bless you in your ministry as a musician.

Last night was entertaining, brilliant, funny and quite frankly, fantastic.
Angela, the kids and I are very proud of you! Your sisters, the band and all of the guests were amazing. As budding musicians, my daughters were very inspired and they could not stop talking about the event this morning. Perhaps you could consider a Christmas special at Hamilton Place? J Between all of your gigs, STM and MAC alumni, your clients, friends, family, etcâ€¦. it would be a success.

We finally got the opportunity to hear you in person last week at St. Michael's! To say we were impressed is an understatement! I have been to many concerts/shows/plays over the years and I will unreservedly say yours was one of the very best. The quality of the line-up, especially you, the choice of songs and the intimacy were all superb, and all at a very reasonable price.
We brought my parents to celebrate their 75th birthdays to see you; it was great to see my mom was rocking in her chair to Thunderstruck!
We picked up and are enjoying your latest CD while we were there. It would be appreciated if you could confirm the name of the gentleman who sang Thunderstruck; I would like to get to know more about him / see him perform as well.
Thanks for an absolutely amazing night! We look forward to more!

Just wanted to pass on my Dad's thought of your show - He sent this to the family that couldn't attend.
Hi all: Just a short note to fill you in on GP's show this past Saturday. It was absolutely awesome. He played the violin throughout the evening to different styles of music from regular dance to rap & hip hop. . The crowd was howling. He is quite the showman with a three piece band, his two sisters on the piano/organ, Pavlo the greek guitarist, a local singer from Hamilton and three hours of pure razzle/dazzle. Full house and free giant samosas after the show. Pure ecstacy. Try not to miss his next show. You will not be dissapointed. Enjai
Obviously Tania and I echo those thoughts - You sure continue to out do yourself -
Glad to say hi and happy I was there for your first performance.
Keep them coming and we will always attend.
ENTRY NUMBER: 346 | 27/10/2014, 5:15 am
Hello Grenville - just wanted to say that my sister and I had an amazing time at the concert last night. It was so great to see you perform again. All of your special guests added such a cool dynamic to the evening - and they all respect you so much as a musician and artist - that was great to see.
Highlights included your mixes with the DJ, the Michael Jackson segment, the tribute to your mother, seeing your sisters performing with you on stage and of course, the finale of Canon in D. That was amazing.
Still your number 1 fan!
Hoping you have more concerts in the future!

Coincidently, I know your sister Christabel from Community theatre that I was involved in. I ordered it and received it within days. I just had to tell you how much I am enjoying it. Each piece becomes my favourite as I am listening. You have such a wonderful selection and variety on this CD.

Sorry this is a bit delayed but the Cioccio family would just like to thank you for helping to make Julia and Stephen's wedding day so memorable. The day after the wedding our daughter-in-law came by and told us that by far you made their day so special. Not only were the guests at our wedding transfixed by you but the officiant, Chris (who we were also blessed to meet) was truly awed! They enjoyed the ceremony, the venues, the food and drink, but overwhelmingly everyone loved how you enhanced this celebration of love.
Every time I have spoken with you or heard you perform, I am always taken with your genuine humility and sincerity. So glad Helder (another wonderful soul!) introduced you to us. You truly are a wonderful gift from God and you use the talent that He has given you to bring joy to others!
Looking forward to listening and watching you perform in the future. Hopefully we can have you back at school sharing your amazing talent and showmanship with the children this year!

Your violin skills are on par with the ability of Moses to split millions of gallons of water in a lmind bending, wish I understood more about physics because I have no idea how this shit is happening right now kind of way.

No, it was just Pinto.

OH MY GOSH...do you know the awesome reviews that I got from your performance? Everyone and I mean everyone loved your performance.
I don't know what to say other than THANK YOU for making my event the talk of the town. They absolutely loved it.
Pat can't get over you playing AC/DC on your violin and behind your legs of all things. I had to email you now because we just popped in the CD that you gave us and I was listening to "Apologize" and your rendition of "Just Dance" is fabulous! You are one talented man! We will definitely have you back one of these years. Pat would love to have you back and he also said it would be nice if we could choreograph a dance to one of your songs. So it would be really cool to have you play and we would dance along. ..I just thought I would write and let you know that all of the people that I spoke to were more than right when they said you weren't good but that you were amazing!
Keep up the great work. I will refer you to any friends that may require your services. My mom absolutely loved you and so did everyone else at the fundraiser. I can't wait to replay the video that Greg took so that Pat and I can enjoy your talent. Thank you so much as well for dedicating the songs that I had requested. I loved when you came to my table to play "Coldplay" and the GNR was awesome and so was the AC/DC. I used to be into rock music back in my younger years then I switched over to dance but now Pat is getting me back into the "right side" and I am slowly getting back into the rock genre. So I was very impressed at what you could do on your violin! Keep up the amazing work! You are definitely AWESOME!

Please tell Mr. Pinto that my family and I were awed by his performance at a gala we attended in November 2011. That's when I first heard him play, and I was determined to have him play at my daughter's wedding. Since she and her fiance set the date only a month ago, I was not able to book Mr. Pinto earlier. However, perhaps when my son gets married some day . . .

I remember attending the South Asian Alliance Formal two or three years ago with my friends and thinking it would be like all the other boring banquets with the same old DJ music. I remember that you played Unfaithful by Rihanna, if I'm not mistaken, and how I instantly fell in love with your sound. To this day, I only went to the Formals in the hope of hearing you play again, especially since everyone I asked did not know who the 'mysterious violinist' at the banquet was.
Finally, someone did know, and I found myself on your site. I absolutely love your sound, and it's been etched into my memory for these past few years. I hope to hear you play live again!
Regards and wishing you all the best,

I just got your new Christmas CD...
Iâ€™ve been listening to it all morning and it has certainly got me in the Christmas spirit.
I LOVE how youâ€™ve infused some of the tradition melodies with a modern twist.
â€œChristmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24â€ is absolutely epic and how did you get the great Andrea Garofalo to sing on â€œPanis Angelicusâ€? Simply marvellous!
And to top it off, youâ€™ve strategically added the light favourites, like â€œFrostyâ€ and â€œHere Comes Santaâ€ to remind us that life is all about having some fun as well as remembering what the season is really all about.
I canâ€™t wait to play your CD at my next Christmas party during cocktail hour and dinner.
Thanks again and all the best with CD sales.
Youâ€™ve always had a loyal fan in me and Iâ€™m sure this new CD will only cause your fan base to grow by leaps and bounds.
Best regards and Merry Christmas!

It was a pleasure watching your magic violin at work inside Paradise Banquet Hall August 7. Even Marco was impressed with your music selections. I had to convince several servers that you were for real. However, after watching you perform Billie Jean by Michael Jackson, they had the needed proof.
Hard to believe that it's been 3 years since I've seen your magic at Paramount. My former teammate Sandy was raving about you, saying "You've got to see this guy perform, he's amazing." Sandy definitely knew what she was talking about.

I was hoping to catch you and I did not get a chance, I wanted to inform you that I really enjoyed your performance and also wanted to tell you that you are one of the MOST talented violin players I have ever seen, I myself have played alto sax for 13 years... It was extremely hard to keep focused on my work when you were playing. ...
Take care of yourself and keep the music alive Grenville.
It was an absolute pleasure listening to you my friend and I am sorry I did not get a chance to meet you.
I will give your name and website info to my Hotel GM and Sales Director as well, so maybe we can get you in here for future events. If you have any questions or small sales packages you can send them attention to me and I will get them in the right hands.

As a wedding planner for the last 10 years, with 500 weddings under my belt, I can honestly say that Grenville is the most unique, awe-inspiring musician that I have ever seen. His passion for music is clearly evident in the variety of styles that he performs. I was most impressed by the way that he interacts with the wedding guests and involves everyone in his show. I would highly recommend Grenville for any event that you are planning - it would certainly be one that your guests or clients would remember.
Thank you for inspiring me. I myself planned on eloping until I met Grenville and now know that he would be an amazing way to celebrate such a special day!

What a night! You were a hit, my friend! Mark and I can't say enough how grateful to you we are. I still remember the day, when Mark and I were planning our big day and I said to him that we needed a musician to perform for our ceremony. He said that he had an old friend that was amazing with the violin. Well, when he said you were amazing, that was an understatement. The first time I met you at your place you blew me away. I have never heard the violin played live like that the way you did, incorporating the latest R&B, hip hop, pop, rock, etc on the strings! I couldn't wait to share you with all our family and friends. You were our special gift to them. You were sensational. Our families and friends can't stop raving how much they enjoyed your performance. So, Mark and I just want to share our sincere thanks to everyone that comes across this board. Let me just say that people would be crazy to pass you up as their entertainment! We love you, man!

I had the pleasure of witnessing a magnificent performance by Mr. Pinto at Leonor and Mark's wedding last night. His gift of music is beyond words...he fiddled endlessly so effortlessly, making it look so easy through out the evening....It moved me...didn't realized I closed my eyes until I a friend gave me a nudge thinking I fell asleep as I was nurturing a headache. Barely, I thought to myself..I was at some place, without the other 200 guests around me...where my soul was being serenated by Mr. Pinto's sublime rendition of The Phantom of the Opera....my head started feeling better as I started filling it with music...
It was an honor for me to be able to rest my fingers on the same bow and strike a note or two upon his insistence...it was very humbling, thank you very much!
Needless to say...Mr.Pinto's music made the occassion even more magical....my only complain was...the evening was too short...
Hoping our paths will cross again..

OMG when Grenville Pinto came to Gardian Angels he played a song he never played before that song is Let it Rock.:-D It totally Rocked. there was flashing lights and the stuff that he plays is too cool! He did circus viva la vida and plenty more! I wish he would come back this year(2009)!he said the violin is not just classical music, it can be funky, rock, hip-hop, pop, and again lots more! GRENVILLE PINTO ROCKS
ENTRY NUMBER: 152 | 25/02/2009, 11:21 am
Wasap Grenville! I loved the utterly amazing music presentation you brought to our school the other day, you transformed Guardian Angels School into a ... violin nightclub, hehe. Loved watching your presentation not only because your played so very well, but the fact that you used your violin to play different popular songs of today but how you showed that classical instruments cannot only be used to play songs of the same genre. I have a song suggestion too, from the fact that I've been seeing you using a bit of the plucking on your violin, I think you would play great if you tried playing the song "I write Sins not Tragedies" by Panic at the Disco. You would really make a good intro to the song. One question though, do you learn songs on the violin by ear? Seems like you do hehe.
Keep up the amazing work!
ENTRY NUMBER: 151 | 19/02/2009, 1:34 pm
I loved your performance today at my school 🙂 it was outstanding. The way you brought other characters into the performance was amazing. You have really inspired me too keep my musical backround forever and go far with it. By the way, i am a student in grade 7, and on the poster of you today i noteced a site, so i decided to check it out. Anyways, you are probobly very busy so i just wanted to say, fantastic job today, i really enjoyed hearing the modern songs being played on a instrument that isin't really use. I have 1 song suggestion : Untouched - by the Veronikas. It includes some violin backround and i am sure that if you played it it would sound absolutley magnificent.
Thanks for coming,

I wanted to let you know how incredibly amazing your performance was at Melanie and Lennon's wedding. I know you probably get told that a lot. But me being a great fan of the violin, a very unappreciated and under valued instrument. I used to play violin in school and quite enjoyed it. I'm only sorry I never continued with it. I've been to many weddings and never come across entertainment like that. Listening to you play, was like a breath of fresh air. You have a gift and you are changing the perception of how people see the violin. Thank you again. You made my night 🙂

You played at our son's wedding last Saturday, March lst. My son told me there were a lot of surprises during the reception but I couldn't have imagined anything as beautiful as listening to your music. Being introduced to your wonderful talent was a bonus. Bob gave us your latest CD and we have played it over and over and over (it is playing now) and have been blessed more than words can express. It will always remind us of the wedding.
It must be wonderful to go to work every day doing the thing you love the most - your performance speaks of the love and respect you have for the music your play and the gift that God has given you. It did not seem right for us to enjoy your music so much and not tell you.

To the incredible Grenville Pinto. From the day we met you at the Bridal Show in January of 07 we knew we had to have you at our wedding. You are a superb musician.
What we love about you is that you are not only a musician but you are an entertainer at heart. Even though there may be 250 people in the room and only one of you, you find a way to make everyone feel like a special part of your performance.
On June 8, 2007 you dazzled our guests at our wedding that until this day many cannot stop talking about. You are an integral part of what made that day a success and to date the most exciting and electrifying day of our lives.
Grenville Pinto you are a class act and number one in our book. We would love to see you perform again and we hope that you will invite us to your concerts or any event that features you in the near future, we will definitely be there cheering you on.

Scott and I can't thank you enough for the wonderful job you did during our ceremony and cocktail hour at our wedding. I mentioned in my speech that when I was in highschool I decided I was going to have you play at my wedding (yes, I was single at the time), and it happened! Even though your sister got married the next day, you still came out and did a stellar performance. Everyone was buzzing about you afterwards. Friends were so impressed by your modern songs (specifically Thunderstruck), and relatives were impressed by the classics. Unfortunately due to my bridal duties, I missed out on most of your playing, but I trust that it was fabulous due the feedback we got. I heard people talk about booking you for their weddings, as well as for corporate functions. Awesome! Thanks again, looking forward to the next Telonix Christmas party!

Your performance during the wedding service was classy and your serenading of the tables during dinner kept the energy up all evening long. Our Italian guests loved the traditional Italian tunes and our other guests loved the modern songs.

One thing come to mind when I saw Grenville Pinto perform for a wedding I DJ tonight; KNOCKOUTBESTPERFORMEVERGRENVILLEPINTO Ahah yes....that's one word..should be in the dictionary infact... this man is a true genius at work, I am not just saying that.....I really mean it. The way he interacted with the audience and caught there eyes makes this man a number one performer in my books. What more could you ask for, sure there may be other people out there who can perform..... but I bet you would never find anyone who not only performs but also adds the element of interaction like Grenville Pinto does...hmm...come to think of it he is not a performer, when your that good you have your own category. God of the Violin. Take care Grenville best of luck in the future.

A quick line to thank you for your performance for my son and new daughter on Saturday evening. You were quite a hit. I know quite a few who will seriously search you out for their future celebrations. Hopefully they act soon enough to fit into your busy schedule. The surprise was flawless. My son had no clue. I know he tried to book you himself but was told that you were already booked for his wedding date (by me of course).
Where are your future public events? Your skills are such that many of us would travel just to hear you. Again well done and thank you.

I attended the party just yesterday for Rob and Marianna's son Michael, and took your business card near the end of the night.
To say I was impressed by your performance is an understatement. You were wonderful.
Are there any scheduled events that you are performing at this summer that I might be able to go to?
And of course if there is any event that I can refer you to - I will!
Again, thank you for handling all our children hanging around your stage and begging for songs!

ENTRY NUMBER: 80 | 02/05/2007, 2:56 pm
I'm not even sure how to begin to Thank you...You are not only an outstanding performer, but you are a truly an amazing individual.
Just to give everyone a little background, my daughter Sabrina lets everyone know that her favourite musician is Grenville Pinto. Her first experience of the wonderful world of his performing, was at a wedding we attended. Ever since that day, she was determined that she wanted Grenville to perform at her First Communion. We did indeed book Grenville as a gift from my Husband and I to her, but kept the whole thing a secret telling her that he was already booked. She ofcourse was so disappointed and it was the hardest thing to keep from her but most definitely worth it. Grenville being the wonderful person he is and knowing how big a fan Sabrina is, arranged with the DJ to surprise her completely. At her Communion, the DJ conducted an interview with her with regards to her favourite things such as her favourite movie, food and eventually asked her who her favourite musician was and ofcourse, she said Grenville Pinto. At that point he was already walking up behind her and she still didn't know. When Grenville started to play, she looked at the DJ and said that she recognized that was Grenville playing. At the point the DJ told her to turn around and her reaction was what I'm still getting calls about from friends and family after almost 2 weeks! They totally appreciate why she loves his music as we all do.
Sabrina's only 8 years old. Yet you still put your heart into making this day so very special for her. I know she will never forget having you join us for her First Communion. All our guests cannot stop talking about your amazing performance! Again, I know I mentioned this that day but have to say it again....you treated our family and Sabrina as if we were Royalty. You are truly wonderful and we are so fortunate to be able to know you. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you!
No one has ever experienced the music that can played from a violin, until they have had Grenville Pinto perform for them! It's the "Grenville experience!". As Sabrina puts its..."Grenville rocks and he's so cool!"
With Love, Mary-Jo, Nelson, Nathaniel and ofcourse...Your #1 Fan, Sabrina!

It's funny, because after I heard you play at the wedding show, I wanted to find out about violin classes, my friend Kanika told me you would be able to refer us to someone, If you could that would be great. Or is it you who would teach?
Thank you so much again, it was just beautiful, I don't know how you are going to do this, but if you could magically find out who my boyfriend is, I wouldn't mind being serenaded into an proposal? hehe?.

We have received numerous (and we mean numerous) complements on your performance. Everyone have only heard of classical music being played on the violin...until they heard you. It was mind blowing to them that contemporary music can also be played on the violin. It's unbelievable that you can bring moderm music to such a classical instrument. Thank you for entertaining our guests!
You have a great deal of talent and we hope you continue to share it with the world. Also, we would in a heartbeat refer you to anyone that is

Amazing talent and very charming. My mom said why don't I just get rid of the DJ and have you play all night. Unfortunately, I told her that you had another wedding. Maybe another time. I told them the next function I have, I will book it around your availability to make sure you are there for the night. It was quite cute, that everyone was asking if they could get a cd of you after your performance. They wanted to know if you were selling any of your cd's. They had not opened their gift boxes yet, and when they did they were all very very happy. They all listened to it in the car on their way home from the wedding.

Hi Grenville, I had the good fortune of seeing and hearing you play at the Bridal Show this past Friday. You have amazing talent...I am sure you have been told that quite a bit...after having read your biography and all... Well... I just wanted to commend you on your performance at the show...it was phenomenal and I actually made it a point to check out your website...and hear some of your pieces online...amazing...

Good Day Grenville: I would like to thank you again for the memorable music that you performed at my parents 50th anniversary. My parents were not only surprised, they were extremely pleased with the entertainment that you provided. Your selection of music was perfect for the Italian culture and special event. I'm hearing quite a lot of compliments from the relatives/guests that were at the event. Each and everyone of them, no matter what the age group was, were all quite pleased with the music. Again my compliments to you, in the music provided and the professionalism that you demonstrated. If you happen to ever perform in the area and it's open to the public, please let me know, I would love to see you perform again. Sincerely, Maria Bozyk Hamilton, ON

I wanted to thank you for playing at our ceremony on August 6 2005 in Burlington. Everyone commented on your music. It was so beautiful. I think you were the added touch that made our day perfect.

It was such a great pleasure to hear you at the bridal show in Hamilton last weekend. As soon as you came out i got goose bumps and as soon as the girls were on the walk way in their gowns a cried in tears of happiness. I would be honoured if you could give me some information regarding fees set up and availability for Friday July 7, 2006 for our wedding. Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you for your time, Melissa Linklater PS You are truly gifted!!!

Many thanks to you Grenville for the moving and beautiful music you provided during our ceremony. The Prayer (during the Lighting of the Unity Candle) was the most special moment of the day for me, partly because you played so beautifully - thank you. During cocktail hour, your version of Volare 'warmed up' the Italians and the singing and dancing didn't seem to stop all night. Wish you could have seen the party that you started. Warm thanks once again for playing for us at Enoch Turner Schoolhouse last month. You were fantastic! People are talking about you all over Italy, London UK and Canada! Lots of love, Catherine and Franco (and families)

Grenville, It's been a while since you played at our wedding on 22 May out in London. But just wanted to let you know that we were very happy with your performance that day and through the dinner. You were given a round of applause during the speech after you left, and we received many compliments that evening and in the following weeks about you and your playing. You did a great job and made dinner more fun than we thought it could be! And well done improvising with that jig - that was a blast! All the best! Rob and Callie Parsons.

What can we say! We received so many compliments on Saturday -- you're truly amazing! We wish that we could have been there to hear you instead of taking photos. Everyone seemed to enjoy listening and singing. Even the DJ asked where we found you, and asked for your contact info because he said that you played a nice variety of music. My cousin plays violin in the Woodstock Symphony and said that he couldn't hold a candle to you. We appreciate all your efforts -- it made for a wonderful day! Thanks again. Regards, Sylvia.

Hello there Grenville. My name is Mary Powers and I am a counsellor over at Bayview Cemetery. (across the street from BayGardens funeral home) I was at the VIP open house on Thursday, not sure if you remember me, with all those people there, but I did give you a "thumbs up" on my way up the stairs as you were playing....which brings me to the reason for my email...You are absolutely amazing. I have never heard such beautiful sound. The feedback that I have heard from those who attended is unbelievable. I would love to come and hear you again if you are ever performing at another function...this time to really sit and enjoy it considering I was running around like a fool that night. Once again Kudos' to you for a breathtaking performance. Be well, Mary Powers
