He played his acoustic guitar for the ceremony and cocktail hour, then emceed the recepetion. He played "Crazy Love" by Van Morrison and nailed it! It was magical and just how I IMAGINED it in my head. He was diverse and his sound was smooth and relaxing. I received nothing but wonderful reviews from all our guests.

We had a great experience working with Dave for our backyard wedding reception. He was very responsive in advance of the event and brought with him everything he needed. We were taking photos when he arrived, but he got himself set up and was ready to jump in with music at the right moment. His performance was excellent. He has a great voice and played the kind of music we love. One of the caterers even commented that she hears a lot of wedding music but that Dave’s talent was really special. Highly recommend!

I booked Dave for a virtual concert for my wife's birthday, hands down one of my wife's best birthday gifts ever. Dave was amazing in his guitar playing and singing. His song selection was superb. He was very professional, punctual, patient and courteous. We did a sound check a couple days prior to make sure everything was good to go with sounds and connections. Will definitely do business again. Thank you Dave, you Rock!
