Kurt Borst is by far the best guitarist/singer. He was hired for my daughter and son-in-laws wedding and presently for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. I cannot say enough or express how pleased we are. You would be foolish not to have him at your next special occasion. Thanks Kurt!

In addition to being an incredibly talented musician, Kurt is a true professional. He played during my ceremony and dinner, and my guests could not stop complimenting him. One of my friends wants to hire him to "play in my living room when I get home from work every day". Another did not realize he was playing, and thought we had Pandora in the background - - he is that good! Kurt was quickly responsive to emails, friendly and so helpful in directing guests at the start of the ceremony, at dinner service and during speeches. I think this was the best money spent for my wedding - do not hesitate to hire Kurt. I will definitely be calling him again.

What an AMAZING talent! Kurt is professional, responsive and incredibly gifted artist. He travelled from Queens up to Dutchess county to help me celebrate my 50th birthday. How lucky was I to find him on Gigimasters website? My family and friends throughly enjoyed listening to Kurt perform. He was the icing on the cake at my birthday celebration. I would highly reccomend him for your next gathering. Someday, I hope to hear Kurt Borst's name over the radio. He is Absolutely the BEST!

Kurt's music is phenomenal. He has real talent. His ability to carry a party with his repertoire continues to impress me. We've booked Kurt twice and have nothing but raving reviews for him. We gave no instruction on what to play, allowing him to read the party and the mood. He blended classic rock, folk and alternative music seamlessly. Just as important is his communication style and his professionalism. From booking to performance, he was easy to reach, schedule and confirm with. He showed up early and stayed late. We felt well taken care of at each moment. I highly recommend booking Kurt for your next event.

Kurt went above and beyond for our wedding. He even learned a song we wanted to hear just for our party. I would give him 10 stars if I could!

Kurt was so wonderful to work with. The ease of booking was awesome. He was early and well-prepared and dressed really nice. We had two rooms that were connected and he went from one room to another as needed making the flow of the party more enjoyable. I can't say enough how wonderfully talented he is and so professional. I would highly recommend Kurt for any function. I will definitely call him again.

Kurt was just amazing! Aside from his talent, he was so accommodating to our requests and extremely pleasant to work with. Many of my friends were requesting his card after our event after hearing him all afternoon. We had so many guests who gave great feedback in regards to the music. Kurt made our special day that much more special. Thank you!
