We hired Joshua for our Daughter's Graduation Party, our whole experience from the beginning to the end was seamless! We had to reschedule the event due to a scheduling conflict on our end, and Joshua was very accommodating, and worked with us to give us other possibilities for a new date. Fast forward to the day of the event.. He was very personable, professional and WOW what a Talent !!! Everyone from the littles to the seniors loved his music, what a Great day! Here it is a month from the event and people are still talking about the Wonderful party and how Spectacular Joshua was. What a great day! We would highly recommend Joshua!!! The Harris Family

Joshua was amazing at our intimate cocktail party and so friendly, down to earth and easy to talk to. He even took requests; pretty cool when people actually danced to acoustical guitar. He was accommodating to some changes in times and dates and communicated well. I do believe others at our party want to hire Joshua in the future for other events. His talent as a player and singer was wonderful!!! He's just the best! Would hire again!

We were so happy with Joshua's services at our corporate/donor function! He arrived early, had all of his own equipment (needed nothing but an outlet from us), was very flexible with our ever-changing timeline, picked the perfect songs for the crowd and atmosphere, and most importantly, was an excellent singer and guitarist! We received so many compliments from guests and senior staff on Joshua's performance. I HIGHLY recommend him for any corporate/client/employee/donor reception!!
