Wedding CeremonyReviewed on May 19, 2024From Bridgewater, NJ

Kurt is incredible. From start to finish he was easy to work with, took all our tastes into account, and made our wedding so special. He even learned to play our first dance song for us. Thank you so so much Kurt!!!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on May 12, 2024From Westfield, NJ

Kurt was amazing! He truly made the event so much more special. He’s an excellent musician and I was blown away by how great he sings and plays guitar. Everyone at the party raved about him afterwards.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on April 29, 2024From Rye, NY

Kurt was one of the best parts of my wedding reception. He was the first, and after listening to his music, only musician I looked at on The Bash. From the first email exchange, he was responsive, kind, professional, and friendly. He has a huge collection of songs he can play, and works with you on other songs you want incorporated into your event. He set up quickly and seamlessly, played outdoors at our cocktail hour, and transitioned inside for our main reception. Kurt was so generous with his time, even staying past our contracted time to wind down the event. EVERYONE raved about his music and asked where I found him. He was simply outstanding. Book him!
