Brian did a FANTASTIC job at our wedding. He was personable, kind, accommodating, and did exactly what he promised he would do: he played excellent music. Brian is very talented. We asked him to learn a lot of new material, which he did wonderfully. All of our guests commented that Brian was great, and we couldn't have agreed more! I would definitely recommend Brian!

Brian was a pleasure to work with for our recent wedding. He accommodated special requests, had a pleasant and professional demeanor, and provided beautiful acoustic guitar and vocals. His quotes were generously competitive and we recommend him highly!

Brian was terrific to work with before the event and a great performer at the event. He was ready to go in time for our group's arrival and played a great selection. Everyone just loved him and our only regret was that we wished our reception had lasted hours so we could have heard more from him. He was simply wonderful!

Brian was amazing to hear. He learned a song just for our ceremony and sang it beautifully. The only thing I would say is that he needed to get there a little earlier so as not to be running back and forth from set up to playing for the arriving guests. We would highly recommend him again!

Brian's amazing talent really brought the party to life. I look forward to seeing him make it really big someday and me having the honor of saying that he performed at my wedding. I did not have the funds to book an entertainer until 3 days prior to the event because of some unexpected costs that limited our spending but it came through at the 11th hour and Brian being the professional that he is pulled off an amazing performance that had all my guests begging for more. It's pretty awesome when you look around the room and you see everyone bobbing their heads or lip singing the songs. I can honestly say that he made the entire event perfect. Thanks Brian!!!

Brian was absolutely amazing from start to finish! He was very timely and professional in his correspondence and in all the details. We knew he was on top of things at all times and that showed in his performance. We hired Brian for our wedding ceremony and reception and he was EXACTLY who we needed to make our event special and meaningful. We wanted someone who's song selection spanned decades and who could keep our guests entertained for over 4 hours with a 'coffeehouse' feel and Brian totally and completely delivered! Multiple guests mentioned 'your guitarist is amazing' and we couldn't agree more.

Brian played at my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. From the beginning Brian was professional and accommodating. He seemed genuinely excited to be apart of our wedding day and even learned a song per my request. A couple weeks before our wedding, Brian reached out to us to make sure everything was in place where as most of our other vendors waited for us to approach them. Brian's performance went off without a hitch and was exactly what we wanted even down to the fine details. My husband and I were very impressed with Brian and we received a lot of positive feedback on his performance from our wedding guests. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Brian.

Brian was exactly what we were looking for! He's very professional and accommodating and an all-around nice guy for one, but he's also an exceptionally talented musician. He played beautifully throughout the evening and made our wedding especially memorable. We asked him to do an acoustic rendition of Empire of the Sun's Walking on a Dream and he nailed it! It made for a really cool first dance. The guests only had good things to say; we couldn't recommend Brian enough! S&T

Brian was very easy to work with. He was proffessional, dressed nicely to match the event and sounded just as good as the music and videos that he has available online. I would have no qualms about hiring him again or recommending him to a friend. I can see why he gets hired so much.
