Kit was EXACTLY what we had hoped for. He went above and beyond to make everything perfect for us. He brought several options for attire and played in two different locations within the venue. He learned a new song for us that was performed beautifully. Kit's professionalism and talent is precisely what we wanted for such an important day. We didn't worry about a thing. We received several compliments on his supurb talent. We were WOWED!

Kit was a fantastic edition to our wedding at Skamania Lodge! Our guests commented to us throughout the night how wonderful he was as a performer, and my husband and I were thrilled at how accommodating he was in terms of the musical selections played. Overall, I recommend him without reservation. He was exceptional!

We hired Kit to play our wedding ceremony... normally people would want the wedding march and cannon in d, but we were looking for something different. Kit was more then accommodating; it was truly a joy to work with him... even when I was being a crazy bride. I would recommend Kit to everyone!

We were so pleased to have Kit Garoutte play at our wedding. He was very professional and worked well with our wedding coordinator and other vendors. We requested specific songs outside of Kit's regular repertoire and he was more than willing to learn them for a very reasonable fee. Most importantly, our guests loved Kit! We received many compliments about how his music added to our party. If we were to do it again, we would have asked him to play for dinner in addition to the ceremony and cocktail hour. Kit communicated well throughout the process and was a personable addition to our event. We are looking for opportunities to have him entertain us again!

Kit was great started early and really helped to list the mood of the hot and hungry guests... We will definitely book Kit again. Thanks for your site, I recommended you to the venue.
