    [He] played our wedding and cocktail hour. He was incredibly professional, talented, and an all-around great guy. We kept in contact in the weeks leading up to the wedding just to iron out a few details but all things considered he needed very little direction and when planning a wedding I couldn’t ask for anything more. I would absolutely recommend [his] services to anyone looking to add that little classy touch to their wedding. – Alex H Horsham, PA

    Things were crazy before the wedding got started so I unfortunately didn’t get much time to talk to [him] at the event, but he was extremely professional and added a perfect touch to our wedding ceremony, [he] showed up early and was ready to go, even with us starting the ceremony a few minutes early. I heard [him] rehearsing a little bit while we were taking pictures, and when the ceremony started, his guitar sounded perfect. We had a few people tell us that they loved [his] guitar and that it added a lot to our ceremony, I’m so happy with how it worked out and the ceremony was perfect! – Lauren P Bryn Athyn, PA

    [He] played beautifully and added the perfect atmosphere for the cocktail portion of our reception. Without any direction from us, as we were completely engaged with our guests, he added elegance and a festive feeling to our wedding. We were thrilled. Everything went smoothly, and we only felt badly that we never said “goodbye and thank you” to [him] directly… – Deb E Mount Joy, PA
