Working with Ed was amazing! He was incredibly kind, thoughtful, and talented. I was looking for a background guitarist for my sister's bridal shower -- I wasn't exactly sure what music I wanted or even when I wanted the music to play. Ed understood my rough vision immediately, made solid recommendations, and executed beautifully. He is great at reading the crowd. My sister and family loved him! When the bridal shower ran an hour over, he generously offered to stay and continue playing. 10/10 would recommend.

We contacted Ed to inquire about him playing at our wedding and he was so helpful, nice and professional from the beginning to the end. I could go on and on about how he took the time to talk to me several times and go over everything to even sending videos to us so we could understand his style of music. He's just a SUPER guy! We even invited Ed to join us for dinner after our wedding ceremony and his company around the table with my family was just as enjoyable as his music played at our wedding. Highly recommend! Thank you so much, Ed!!!

Ed was the perfect choice to play at our wedding and through our dinner service. If we could give more stars we would! He is very talented, friendly and professional. He quickly responds to questions and was very easy to work with. So many of our guests commented on how beautifully he played! We are very happy we chose Ed to set the perfect mood for our special day!

We were all very happy with Ed's performance at our party! Ed was very friendly, professional and talented. He was exactly what we were looking for and was extremely accommodating. He even helped with getting a last few things together before the guest of honor arrived! My mother was very impressed and really enjoyed the extra touch Ed added to her 50th birthday luau celebration. The music he played was perfect, and he even learned a special song specifically to play for my mom. I definitely recommend Ed for future parties. With his friendly disposition, professionalism and skills he'd make a great addition to your special occasions as well. Alexis

Ed was exceedingly professional and accommodating throughout all of our interactions. He was actively involved in recommending pieces and arrangements that might be appropriate for our wedding ceremony and was of course completely accommodating of songs that we specifically wanted, even to the point of learning a new song that we requested. The ceremony music that we decided on was played beautifully by Ed. Our experience with Ed could not have possibly been any better, and we would absolutely recommend him to our family and friends.

Ed was great. He played the exact type of music we requested for the event and started promptly so music was playing as the first guests for our Grand Opening arrived. The volume was perfect, not to soft, but not to loud. Everyone enjoyed the entertainment and we got all positive feedback. Due to our type of business, we have these events often and I am sure that we will use Ed again!

We couldn't be more happy about Ed's musicianship and just as important, his professionalism. The positive feedback from our guests is a testament to this. It couldn't have gone any better . Don't think twice about hiring Ed. If he's available, book him right away. Thanks Ed!!!
