"Christopher was very pleasant and professional throughout our wedding and planning process. He always responded promptly to my emails and was happy to answer any questions I had. I can honestly say he was probably the easiest to work with out of all my wedding vendors. Most importantly, he is an amazing guitarist. We had so many comments about how awesome our guitarist and ceremony/cocktail music was. He had a good selection of songs and even learned a specific song that we requested."

Chris performed at a 50th birthday party that I organized. I have to say I am very impressed with Chris and his talent and professionalism. A day after I requested a quote on gigmaster Chris followed up with a phone call to make sure that any questions I had were answered. After listening to a few of his music samples and getting a few more quotes, I chose Chris because his style of music seemed to be exactly what I was looking for. Chris promptly arrived an hour before the party as we had discussed. All the guests commented on what a wonderful addition the music to the night. I would 100% recommend Chris!
