A birthday my fiancé won’t soon forget.

Peter came to my fiancé’s work and surprised her (and the other coworkers) with a truly unique gift of music and slight embarrassment. 
She loved it and we took a small video and uploaded it to Facebook and it got well over 100 likes and loves and great comments there as well. 
I can say nothing but good things about this service and recommend it as a nice romantic alternative to the boring day to day cards and standard birthday greetings. 
Peter also went out of his way to find a very tough to get to business and pull a surprise up as well.

Pete! Perfect mate! Thank you so much ☺

I just watched the video and I've never seen him so lost for words haha! 

He thanked me so many times and said how special it made his birthday and the rest of the night at work.

Please pass on my thanks to your wife also, the card is absolutely beautiful. I couldn't have asked for anything more perfect.

Thank you again Pete. You are fantastic at what you do and have really helped everyone back home be a part of Scotts birthday.

My kindest regards and best wishes to you in the future,



You came and went so fast, I hope I properly thanked you for your lovely song and the birthday telegram from Chris. Thank you very much, it completely brightened my day! I truly appreciated it, it was so lovely. May I ask what the song you sang was? 

Thank you so much again, 

Mélania (birthday girl from Bridge Studios)  :)


Brought Many Smiles

By Allison J. on February 22, 2017

Peter made my Dad's 80th birthday super special. My Mom said that it not only made his day, it made his entire week. Peter said he would make my Dad super happy and he came through with that promise with flying colours. My Mom is looking for another occasion so she can hire Peter again.


Perfect Timing and Made Everyone's Day

By Stefan M. on February 16, 2017

Peter visited someone at work with a surprise Happy 40th Birthday song in front of coworkers and children and everyone enjoyed his performance immensely. I booked it a few days in advance and everything went great! Thanks Peter


Hi Peter.  My dad loved it!!!  My mom said that not only did it make his day, it made his whole week!  You provide awesome entertainment!  Thanks!  I will write a testimonial as soon as I can.  Thanks again!

40th Birthday

My daughter and I wanted something special for our daughter-in-law's 40 th birthday. She is a huge Neil Diamond fan. After looking at several options we contacted Peter Paulus. It was the best thing we ever did! Both my daughter and I live out of town so everything was done through email and phone. Peter was so accommodating and flexible. During his performance family and friends were sending us pictures and videos so it was like being right there! Everyone had a fabulous time. Our son said Peter was very discrete when setting up and very friendly with all of their guests. Our daughter-in-law was VERY surprised! ! This is one birthday she won't forget!! I would highly recommend his services and I would definitely use his services again!!!

Amazing Experience

Peter genuinely cared about making my moms birthday a very special moment and she and all her colleagues could tell. I had Peter show up at my moms work and sing her Happy Birthday with some balloons. Not only did she love it, she thought Peter was amazing and had real heart. Thank you so much Music-Grams!



Total Surprise and for her and that was something she never had before; Is someone putting something on for her.
She and the kids were impressed that you sang the Dutch Birthday song.
The CARD is the treasure that will be with her for years (or forever) you were exactly right it is a special remembrance.
I would HIGHLY recommend your services
Cheers Gary

Telegram for 40th Birthday

I wanted to surprise my husband with something a little unusual for his 40th birthday and found Peter's website. He was extremely accommodating and helped me organize the surprise within a few days. The visit to my husband's office was a big hit! Thank you Peter!

Last Minute No Problem!

I literally called Peter less then 24 hours to help me out of a little last min birthday surprise for my girl-friend of 13 years. I even called him overseas in Australia so i was very unsure if he could squeeze me in but it was absolutely the right call. Thank you Peter and i will undoubtedly call you again.        




Many thanks to you and Lana for the PERFECT entertainment for our residents!

We raised $2,100.00 for our Christmas hamper fund!  OUTSTANDING!

This is the highest amount to be raised in the history of the Mulberry.

RCMP Veteran's Spring Social & Luncheon

We all had a great time yesterday and we will certainly keep your band in mind for future dates. One thing that you might have noticed is that our people tend to talk while the music is playing. This does not mean that they are not paying attention and not listening. There has been criticism before about bringing in bands that have the music so loud that no one can hear a word said until the music stops for a minute or so. And many of our people attending only see each other a few times a year so like to visit. The music just makes it nicer for them to have it and talk too. We had many compliments about the entertainment from those who enjoyed the event so much and who really enjoyed the music. So, you go down in our books as a very successful contributor to our “Spring Social of 2015.”

Your wife, Lana, mentioned to me that you also play other types of music, so we will keep you in mind for future events.

Fun Birthday Surprise

I had a very good experience organizing a music gram for a friend in Vancouver. Despite being out of Province it was no trouble coordinating it by email with Peter. My friend loved it and was truly surprised when Peter arrived to sing her a tune at her birthday brunch at a local restaurant. The personalized card was lovely too.

Amazing German Wedding Reception

Top notch all around. Everyone had a wonderful time, and my wife and I have to say the band really added that special touch to our Oktoberfest reception. My family is German and we wanted a reception that my Omas could relate to. My mom had so much fun she wants to do it again next year, so expect to hear back from me guys!

Band was very professional. Arrived early, took part in the festivities, and overall seemed a part of the family gathering rather than just a band for hire. Would recommend them personally if needed, and hope to enjoy their services again.

The Special Event evening sometimes is the only evening some of our members get out so we always want to make it so special for them and you as entertainers have done just that.  I will still be working at the hostess desk a couple of times a week so will just be stepping back from doing the entertainment bookings.  Perhaps we will be back on a committee sometime in the future but until then my sincere thanks for all your help, comments and wonderful times at the centre.  I do hope you have all had a wonderful summer and hope our paths cross again soon.  My best to each and everyone of the greatest entertainers I have been able to book for our members.

Great Show

I was impressed with the service Peter provided. He's a well organized, musically-talented good fellow. The telegram was expertly delivered with surprise and charm. I even have the photos capturing the event. Thanks Peter.

Hello Peter

Thank you Peter for your entertainment at the Alexandra Neighborhood House yesterday. It was wonderful to see how much everyone enjoyed your music. I will definitely pass on your card to anyone that is looking for entertainment. Have a wonderful weekend and once again it was wonderful to have met you and your wife and to see how everyone enjoyed your music.

I want to thank you and Peter for your stellar performance. Pete is a very talented musician and his performance was amazing – we were still reminiscing about it last night at the birthday diner for Scott at Capilano Heights. (My Dad was hoping you two could have joined us!) Everyone from 15 to 85 loved the music and repertoire of music. Your flair and creativity for setting up the decorations and following up with all the details, was also amazing, as always!



Wonderful Service :) Glad it's available

Booked Peter for a surprise office visit for my dad's birthday and thought it was great! Peter included photos of the visit since I couldn't be there and was a pleasure to speak with/deal with on the phone. Overall, very thoughtful!



Thank you for the blessings, but you my dearest, are an angel. All those people whom you bring joy to with your songs and music; I can feel the love and light in the room. As always, my dear friend.

Fun and Energetic Performance!

I had an exciting last minute idea for my husbands birthday, a singing telegram. However, my Einstein moment came to me with less than 24 hours to spare before the day. I emailed Peter and he responded so quickly and was able to accommodate my every hope and dream for this special occasion. My husband enjoyed his special moment and I couldn't have been more pleased with Peters energy and fun performance. I HIGHLY RECCOMMEND THIS TALENTED MAN!! :D

Thanks Peter for making my hubby's big day that much more special!

Client Review

I surprised my husband with a singing telegram and he loved it. I found the entertainer very kind and friendly. He also gave a handcrafted birthday card made by his wife with the words I wanted to say to my husband. And I think that was really nice of them. My husband was so happy. Thank you Peter.

Christmas Party

We asked Peter and his wife to come to our establishment in Langley (Frosting Cupcakery - www.frostingcupcakery.com) to host a "Santa" High Tea before Christmas. They were absolutely fantastic! They arrived ahead of schedule, were very well organized and prepared, and then put on a show of singing, taking pictures, meeting with the kids, and even stopped to do a photo session with us as well. I would highly recommend Peter (or Mr. & Mrs Claus :-) for any occasion. We will definitely be asking them if they would be interested in joining us again in the future.

Christmas Party

Peter / Lana aka Mr and Mrs. Kringle were a wonderful addition to the kids Christmas party I hosted this year. I had a lot of very positive feedback not only from the parents but also from the kids and that is where it really counts. I look forward to having them back again next Christmas and will be recommending them throughout the year as well to others. Thanks again Mr and Mrs. Kringle. 5 stars from me.

Private Home Christmas Party

Just another thank-you for making our Christmas Day extra special. As you can see, no small children in the mix although with two of them getting engaged this past year, the next generation may not be too far away. Everyone was surprised and full of smiles. The young adults thought it was awesome and the older ones were almost in tears. Ricks dad kept saying to me all evening it was the best Christmas he has ever had. Thanks for all you do. I'm sure the smiles you create in the seniors homes last way past New Years!!!!

Linden's girlfriend mom manages a home in New West. I'm going to have to make sure she has your info. 

Again, many thanks

Private Christmas Party

Well Done!

I booked Peter for a small private Christmas gathering. He arrived dressed professionally, set up his equipment, tuned it, and began playing. I had selected songs in advance from the extensive list on his website. Peter’s nature is very calm & congenial and he is well suited to this work. He also sincerely wants to make the event a great experience for those in attendance. Peter navigated all songs in the manner of a consummate professional, making it look easy and sound good. Rather impromptu, we sang along to the songs whose lyrics we knew well enough, and that didn’t throw him off! Peter was very generous with his time and even offered to do requests before ending. I was very pleased with the overall experience. I found myself reflecting upon how enjoyable, even healing, it can be for people to be able to listen to classics and to be able to sing along with the live music. I certainly recommend Peter for your function.

Santa Social Success!

Peter provided the entertainment at our Santa Social held at Cavell Gardens Retirement Community on Saturday 21st December 2013. We had a delightful time listening to the old time songs and he was even able to entice some of us onto the dance floor with a few up-tempo tunes. Thank you for making the evening so enjoyable Peter. On behalf of the Staff and Residents; Have Yourself a Very Merry Christmas!

Private Birthday Party

Thank you Peter for a very memorable & thoughtful entertainment

Peter was such a wonderful gift surprise for my mother's 88th birthday party. He was so very thoughtful and talented (in English and German). He gave more than what we expected. My mom was especially pleased with the gorgeous and very personalized birthday card. Peter made sure he covered everything in our vision for her party - thank you!

Linda F



Hi Peter,

Thank you  so much for entertaining us all at mom's party last week.  We all enjoyed it and she was also very pleased with the very beautiful birthday card your wife made for her.  It was extra special having you stay longer then we had requested.  You are very thoughtful and talented.

Singing Telegram

Wonderful service!

Peter is a very pleasant person who'll go the extra mile for you. I contacted him last minute (I mean really last minute, ah-um, the day before) to deliver a singing telegram to a friend of mine. Did he ever come through! Wow, amazing! Thanks Peter for wonderful service and your patience with all the changes.

His service is available in person in Vancouver, but through the magic of the internet via Skype he can deliver a singing telegram just about anywhere in the world. 

Many thanks!

Children's Birthday Party

We hired Peter for our son's 2nd Birthday party. Peter had the kids dancing and singing along to a large array of popular kids songs. He was great singing with his guitar and had my son mesmerized by his accordion playing. All in all a great experience topped off by a really nice personalized birthday card for my son. Thanks Peter!

Singing Telegram

We were looking for a professional person that would sing a song to our boss. Well we found Peter who did an amazing job. Peter took the time to understand what we wanted and tailored the presentation to our standards. He went above and beyond to make a personalized card for our boss. Based on feedback received from our co-worker, our boss loved the presentation (singing telegram). Thank you  Peter for your excellent work. We will keep you in mind for future events and recommend you to our friends and family.

 "We have enjoyed the musical entertainment of Peter Paulus on a number of special occasions at Chartwell Churchill House Retirement Residence including Oktoberfest and Happy Hour celebrations. Peter is always professional, prompt to arrive and a pleasure to correspond with for bookings. Our residents like the variety of music he provides and his ability to interact with their older age group. I would recommend Peter to any similar senior's retirement community seeking affordable, fun and professional entertainment to add to their program".

An Hour Of Fun

Peter entertained the residents at Fraserview Intermediate Care Lodge with sing-a-long, dance-a-long tunes from everyone's favorite era. You can't beat his enthusiasm and spirit. He fills the bill and he loves his music!



Thanks Peter for a wonderful evening to celebrate my friend Kathy's birthday! Your two hour performance kept all of us on our feet laughing and dancing and being your back up singers! Our group of 10 ladies (ages 47-55) are still talking about it three weeks later! So much fun and you read the mood of our group perfectly! I would not hesitate to recommend you for any type of celebration!

To Our "Go To" Music Man At Sunwood Retirement Home

Music Grams is by far my residents' favorite entertainer and we are always excited to have him back more. We always book him for our "major" events in our home because he is so adaptable and always dresses up for whatever theme we are having that day which always adds to the fun in the building as well. The resident's always ask for him to return more often than I actually can book him because he is such a busy man which is no surprise due to the fantastic work he does.

Excellent Group; We Love You Guys

As Recreation Manager here at Inglewood Care Centre, I would recommend Peter and his group for any of your entertainment needs. Peter and his team bring such great entertainment which is appreciated on all units here at Inglewood. His sense of humor and ability to engage the residents is so well received. The group can be counted on to come dressed for the special event and even gives me suggestions as to what events might be well received by our residents.

Quality Performance And Experience!

Everyone at Point Grey Hospital absolutely enjoyed having Peter play guitar and sing for us. All of the residents and staff were engaged as they sang along and he really geared his music according to the audience. Peter is extremely pleasant, has a great sense of humor, was very flexible with the songs he played and he even took requests. We are delighted to have him come back and perform for us and we look forward to being a part of Peter's passion for music!

I just want to share with all the care homes in the lower mainland about the entertainment we had on Wednesday,December 12th, 2012 .

Thank you once again for the amazing performance.

Dancing To Your Music At The Greyhound Retirement Party

........you did a super job, your music was just the right mix for our type of party, - not too loud, - not too hip, and not too old!  I believe "the music makes the party".

I was impressed by the way you read the crowd, starting easy and blending into more swinging and uplifting dance tunes as the night progressed.  It's also great that you have such a wide selection of variety and styles to suit any type of crowd. For a single person, you made the room seem filled with a complete band.(Congratulations!  I envy your talent).  I had many comments from our friends saying how much they enjoyed the music and would love to have you entertain us again.

All the best in your career,
Glenn & Ruth M


"I was very happy - my mother loved it. Thank you. As I live in London, England and my mother lives in Vancouver, I was unable to be with her on her birthday, so I asked Peter to deliver my birthday wishes for me with music and song. Peter is the ultimate professional - he suggested music, responded quickly and found time at very short notice to help! He arrived when he said he would, presented my mother with a beautiful rose and made it a birthday gift she will never forget (her words). The rose has now been pressed by her to preserve the memory. I would recommend Peter without hesitation."


Noorin Amir V (London, England)


We gave Peter a very tough assignment - take an obscure piece of piano music, format some words to it, and sing it for our best friends at their 50th wedding anniversary.  He did an amazing job and put a lot of extra effort into meeting our request.  He and Lana also added some nice touches at the time of the performance.  Our friends and their guests loved the act. We would recommend him highly.

Hi Peter,

We wanted to thank you guys again for for the fun afternoon! Everyone really enjoyed the band ....it made Martin and Joanne's day (it was a surprise)

I hired Peter and his band for a special mission to serenade a certain special lady. Peter  understood exactly what I had wanted, and was friendly, thoughtful, warm and professional.  He made a great impression on the special lady.  

Thank you, Peter.    



I hired Peter to sing and play at Zion Park Manor Nursing Home where my mother lived and I volunteer. Peter sang some of the oldies plus some newer songs for the senior residents to sing along to and enjoy. It was nice that Peter gave some history to the songs that he sang. He even had some of the residents dancing whether it be on the dance floor or in their chairs. A good time was had by all. I will definitley hire Peter to come back to entertain the residents at Zion Park Manor again.   


I just posted a little something on your page and again, thank you SO much for the valentines day surprise!! Katty and I still talk about it all the time! Hope you're doing well and take care of yourself!
