CelebrationReviewed on October 15, 2019From Dennis Port, MA

He went beyond the call of duty. Brian was first to play at a seaside restaurant where I envisioned it a particular way. He contacted the restaurant and worked out a compromise. When I changed my mind, he contacted the hotel next door and secured permission to perform according to my plan. Very easy person with whom to work.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on October 17, 2011From West Bridgewater, MA

Brian played for us last weekend at a wedding and it could not have been a better experience from the moment I first contacted him until now. He was very easy to work with and was able to incorporate our song choices and recommend others to go along with the ones we already had in mind. He was always easy to contact and I never had any doubts about him throughout the process. He made it so easy! And on top of all of that, his talent is undeniable. I would highly recommend him to anyone!!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on June 2, 2013From Eastham, MA

From our first contact to the day of the event, Brian was a pleasure to work with. He requested a song list, played most of our requests and added a few of his own. He was just the perfect touch for our small intimate wedding. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an acoustic guitar player for a special occasion. Diana & Christoper Shane

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on August 16, 2016From North Attleboro, MA

Brian was just perfect for our party . We had so many comments on how good he was from the 185 guests at our event. He offered to learn new songs which would be meaningful for our honoree and did so! Do not hesitate to book this musician, he was a dream to work with and listen to.

Community EventReviewed on October 7, 2019From Wakefield, RI

Brian travelled about 1 1/2 hours each way.He arrived early allowing himself plenty of set-up time. He was congenial and accommodating. The event was a church fall festival-seniors, adults and kids.No alcohol. I gave him suggestions of music that I thought would be well received, and it was. He played outside around a campfire, as well as inside for supper. He took a short break for supper, and played and sang the rest of the time. He had a small speaker, and could be heard, but was not overwhelming- exactly what I had in mind. Thanks, Brian!

Memorial ServiceReviewed on June 27, 2016From Cape Cod, MA

I cannot compliment Brian enough, he is a very talented musician, great communicator, and was very respectful and compassionate to all the friends and relatives that showed up for the memorial. He was a hit! and added a beautiful touch to the thread of the services. Regards Jonathan Broff


Jonathan Thank you so much for the opportunity to participate at the memorial. It was a very moving ceremony to all. Best regards, Brian Fishmonger Kelly

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on October 11, 2013From Harwich Port, MA

We were so pleased with Brian's performance for our wedding ceremony! We felt that his live performance was even better than his YouTube video samples (which we had already been impressed by and had helped us in deciding to hire him). His style was perfect to compliment our outdoor Cape wedding ceremony.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on September 27, 2011From East Orleans, MA

Brian was the perfect choice for my outdoor wedding. I wanted a light-hearted feel to it with a skilled acoustic guitarist and he delivered in every way. He was professional, easy to work with, and learned (or re-learned) a specific song I requested for walking down the aisle. He did a perfect job and I would definitely recommend him for anyone looking for an acoustic guitarist or performer for their wedding ceremony.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on September 23, 2012From Barrington, RI

Jim and I were very pleased with Brian. He was perfect for our small wedding and venue. He willingly learned a couple of new songs for us. He accomodated a last minute decision to hold the ceremony outside, then quickly moved inside for the reception. He even performed an impromptu duet of "Me and Bobby McGee" with one of our guests, a professional singer. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an acoustic guitarist/singer.

CelebrationReviewed on October 25, 2010From Hingham, MA

Brian was a great addition to our party. The crowd loved him -- he played crowd favorites, and knew when to keep the music more low key, and when to get the crowd moving. He was great about taking requests (and letting guests peform along with him as well). I'd highly recommend him.

Anniversary PartyReviewed on December 4, 2010From Brighton, MA

Brian was very willing to accomodate our request to be background music for our parents 50th Anniversary party. He arrived early to set up and even went above and beyond to play a song through his PA for their "1st dance". He sang all the favorite Irish tones and then some. We would absolutely hire Brian again for a party. We highly recommend him. Thanks Brian. You made our celebration extra special.

Daytona 500 PartyReviewed on November 30, 2010From Carver, MA

Brain did a great job providing music at my party. He played a good variety of music that kept guests entertained but the music was not overpowering. He also went to great efforts and was successful in keeping children at the party involved and entertained. I know at least one of my guests plans to hire Brian for his upcoming party.

Country Club EventReviewed on November 14, 2011From Westford, MA

We hired Brian for an event at our community clubhouse. The residents loved him and had a wonderful time making requests--Brian can play a wide range of music and was able to accommodate all of their requests. He's amiable and laid back, but he's also a true professional at the same time. We look forward to hiring him again next year.

Family ReunionReviewed on June 29, 2014From Centerville, MA

Brian did a great job for us... he was totally flexible and fun. We did a sing-along and he did a tremendous job engaging the crowd and the more talented in our group in the activity. As part of our reunion, it was listed as a favorite of the weekend by a bunch of our crew. Thanks again Brian, we'll do it again some time!
