Giovanni is amazing! He is so personable and thoughtful and an outstanding performer. He provided such wonderful energy for our party and from beginning to end of the entire process was such a pleasure to work with. I'm ready to plan another event just so we can have him there to play:)!

Giovanni was absolutely incredible! I booked him three weeks before my wedding and he was a dream. He was very quick, responsive, and friendly. I loved that I didn't have to worry about him at all. He arrived early to both the ceremony and reception venue to set up. He set the perfect mood for each venue and made everything so perfect. Did I forget to mention how talented he is? The guitar is just an extension of who he is and his artistry shows. When I walked down the aisle all I could think was how happy I was that I chose him. Do not think twice, book this incredible man! If I ever have another party/event you better believe I will book him! THANK YOU Giovanni <3

Talented, and KIND... You have come to the right place. From the moment I requested a quote, Giovanni was extremely responsive to all of my questions. He has very wonderful sense of business and service! He followed up weeks before, and days before, just to make sure everything was perfect. Accepts requests and is willing to learn new songs. Has an extensive repertoire. I am grateful because although our ceremony started 30 mins late, Giovanni kept playing his beautiful music. There are many guitarists you will find, but I promise you they will not be as amazing (in every sense) as Giovanni. BRAVO!

Giovanni was absolutely amazing at our wedding! He provided pre-ceremony and ceremony music for our Healdsburg wedding in a rustic barn on a winery. He was great to work with beforehand, accommodating our specific song requests and responding promptly and professionally to all our questions. Day of he was perfect - he showed up early, helped set up our microphone for our officiant and welcoming our guests as they arrived with beautiful acoustic music. Everyone raved and, best of all, we didn't have to do a thing! Giovanni was in and out without a single request or a bit of friction and we stayed focused on enjoying our amazing wedding day!

Giovanni did an amazing job at our recent wedding ceremony! He is so talented and professional in his work. Prior to the wedding he was very responsive with all of our questions. He has a very extensive song repertoire and gave us some great recommendations as well when picking our songs. Day of wedding, he arrived extra early to set-up and do multiple sound checks/run through. During the ceremony, his music was absolutely lovely, volume and flow were seemless...just perfect. As the bride, walking down the aisle hearing my favorite song brought me and my groom to tears. We would definitely hire Giovanni again!

I would recommend Giovanni Mandala to anyone and everyone. I was first introduced to Giovanni at a wedding expo. He was the one person and service that I remembered. I had a really good first impression of him. We absolutely loved him at our wedding ceremony as did our guests. We had a small ceremony in a park. He was accommodating to all of our needs down to saving money and time to rent a microphone and small amp for the actual ceremony/vows by providing the microphone and amp for us. Thank you Giovanni for helping make Stan and I's wedding the most perfect and memorable day!

Giovanni was the guitarist for my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour this past weekend at Silverado Resort and Spa. He did an incredible job executing the song requests we had for the ceremony and helped set the stage for a beautiful wedding ceremony with his musical talent. He was so easy to work with and I cannot say enough good things about how great of a job he did at my wedding. Should I ever had another special event in the future he is the musician I plan to hire! Thank you, Giovanni!!

Giovanni can play not only many classical pieces but also pop tunes for singing and variety. He was professional as I expected. He arrived ahead of time and stayed until the end of our party, as I expected. I am fully satisfied with him and his work.
