Anniversary Party•Reviewed on December 9, 2017•From Gilbert, AZ
Ours was a private party and we were very pleased with Colin's professionalism, his talent,his quick response to emails and his ability to entertain without being intrusive so our guests could still visit with one another. He followed up with us both before and after the event. We received numerous compliments from our guests on his performance.

I was pleasantly surprised to be able to book Acoustic Echoes on such short notice. Even more pleasantly surprised by how much my party guests enjoyed the music! Since the rain kept the 40 of us indoors, it was really nice to have the music. I hope Acoustic Echoes will want to play NEXT year at this annual party!

I would hire again and recommend Colin to anyone for their event. He was incredibly accommodating to song requests and some last minute changes and it was nice to work with someone so laid back when other parts of the event (wedding) were getting a little crazy. He played great sets and his music choices were exactly what we wanted. Also, he wasn't so loud that we couldn't talk during the reception - that was very appreciated. Thank you Colin!
Wedding Reception•Reviewed on November 7, 2014•From Mesa, AZ
I don't even know where to being. I had a hard time finding someone who was reasonable in price and talent, until I found Colin. Colin actually played the guitar as I performed at my Best friends wedding. He was very professional and even rehearsed with me until the day of the wedding. I even changed the song I wanted to sing a week before the wedding!! (Crazy I know) But he executed the song that I wanted to sing and even arranged the music himself. Which made the experience very special to me and my friends. I couldn't imagine anyone else to play for me that night! so again Thank you Colin!! I will always remember that night. - Carlos

Colin was the perfect choice for my sons wedding. He learned new songs, kept the volume at the perfect level and added both uniqueness and ambience to our evening. We had to adjust plans due to weather and he flowed with it. If you want the perfect elegant touch to a wedding, choose Colin!

Colin was a real boost to our party. Nice, talented, entertaining. Easy to work with. I got many comments from party goers about how they enjoyed his singing and playing and how it 'made the party'. We will definitely invite Colin back for any parties in the future! He did a great job!
Community Event•Reviewed on June 20, 2013•From Phoenix, AZ
We held a charity benefit and I was looking for some ambient music to be played at the event. At first I told Colin that I only wanted him to play to the guitar and no vocals since it was a charity event. However, I quicky changed my mind when I went to see him at a local venue. His performance was awesome. On the night of the event, he showed up right on time and had everything he needed. The music selection he chose was perfect, and I received rave reviews all night. He even agreed to stay for an extra half hour since people were enjoying it so much. He will be my go to musician for any event I have going forward. I highly recommend him!
Wedding Ceremony•Reviewed on May 25, 2013•From Scottsdale, AZ
Colin Barley did our wedding ceremony music for us and we are absolutely delighted that we used him. We gave Colin songs that we wanted and sure enough, he learned each of them and performed them beautifully. He is very professional, always responsive and we will be using him again for any private parties we have in the future.
Most of all, Colin is extremely nice, genuine, very kind and a pleasure to not only work with but to get to know as person.
Corporate Function•Reviewed on May 9, 2013•From Scottsdale, AZ
I requested a guitarist the day before a corporate event and Colin was the first to respond to my request. Not only did he respond via e-mail, he also called to see if I had any other needs for the evening. he was very prompt with all of his correspondences.
Upon arrival Colin was able to set up very quickly and made sure to check in with me that that everything looked ok.
His music was perfect for our small group of 20 dinner guests. I had originally talked to him about only performing instrumental music, but his singing with the guitar was wonderful. Several of our guests asked for his contact information. I would love to work with Colin again!
