Wedding ReceptionReviewed on September 12, 2021From Boston, MA

Russ is an amazing guitarist, he was flexible with last minute changes. He plays beautifully and it added such a beautiful element to our daughter's small intimate wedding. He did an awesome job and was professional, polite and accommodating every step of the way from start to finish. We loved him so much we asked him play longer!

WeddingReviewed on September 20, 2020From Rye, NH

Russ played at our wedding during the ceremony and the cocktail hour. He was incredible! Prior to our wedding he had sent us a few clips of him playing his guitar so that we could decide if he was what we were looking for. He is so talented that we chose one of the songs he sent as an example to be played during our processional. We had never heard the song prior to and absolutely fell in love with it. He was easy to communicate with, reliable, and we had no issues at all on our wedding day. He was a pleasure to work with. Many of our guests are talented musicians and have gone out of their way to tell us how impressed they were with Russ. We HIGHLY recommend him!

R.D. King:

Hi Shannon, Thank you for having me! Was glad to help make your wedding day special! Congratulations again. Best, R.D. King
