Charna Halpern, co-founder, owner and operator of iO Theater:

“I first met Scott Borchert when I went to saw him in concert playing with one of the bands he was in. I was instantly blown away.   I went up to him as asked if he ever considered accompanying improvisation, since I owned The iO Theater and am always looking for the best of the best pianists. His curiosity was peaked. He came to see  one of my shows and said that he could easily accompany them since scoring and improvising music was something he was good at.  Scott began working with iO in addition to playing in bands.  His agreeable demeanor meshed perfectly with the YES AND theory that we espouse.  He supported our performances and made everyone look good.  Then he met a woman, fell in love and went to New York. That was our downfall. If you are lucky enough to get him-I will be jealous but I advise you to grab him.”

Doug McKean, The Boys From the County Hell:

“Scott sat in with our band at the House of Blues at the last minute, ran through his tune  briefly at sound check and nailed it on the performance that night. Great player, great listener, great to hang out with otherwise.”

Justin Amolsch, Owner/Operator, Brass Inferno Productions LLC, Chicago:

“My company has hired Scott Borchert for a myriad of events & concerts and have found his musical versatility and professionalism to be at the highest level. I have shared the stage with him on many of these jobs and can attest that his talent is only over-shadowed by his positive attitude and engaging state presence.  It is always a distinct pleasure when Scott is able to play keys in one of my ensembles!”

Scott Herschler, Owner/Operator/Producer of Joe Quality Studios:

“Musicians and producers can rely on Scott to contribute charted or improvised keyboard playing that brings style and class to any genre of music.”

John Clinton, events coordinator:

“Scott is the real deal – not only does he have some mean piano-playing skills but he also assembled a killer group of musicians that nailed the exact vibe we were going for at our event. Classy and professional – GREAT to work with.”
