Annalisa was very kind and professional. The music we discussed was performed beautifully and it really did enrich the reception. It was done as a gift to the bride and groom and she told me how grateful she was and that she really loved the songs played, especially the songs she recognized as some of her all-time favorites. So thank you, Annalisa. I will definitely need to buy your new album!

Annalisa was truly amazing! Her music really added a perfect touch to the ceremony. She was also sooo accommodating. She worked with me to put together the music that I envisioned for my day. And, not only did she drive all the way to VT from CT to be a part of my wedding, but she also hiked (gear and all) down a windy trail to our ceremony site. Annalisa, I could not have asked for a better guitarist! You were wonderful! Thank you sooo much! Dianna

Annalisa is tremendously talented. She is extremely knowledgeable about the music, which is helpful if you have an idea of what types of music/sounds I wanted to hear, but no idea what that type of music was called or specific names of composers or songs. When I explained the type of sounds I wanted for my wedding ceremony and cocktail party, Annalisa gave me a number of suggestions and advised me on where I could hear samples of that music, and I was able to choose beautiful selections based on her advice. She was very accommodating when I needed to add a selection to the beginning of my wedding ceremony only a couple days before the wedding.

Annalisa was very professional and was great throughout the whole process - she reached out to us to discuss the specific songs to play during the ceremony, was unobtrusive during the performance and reception, and was very helpful throughout. We would not hesitate to use her again.

Dear Annalisa, It was I who should be extending the debt of gratitude to you for bringing your music, your talent and your wealth of musical background to an audience captivated by your presentation. It is always the musical part of the evening that elevates the event to something more that a Christmas party and you certainly did not disappoint. The description of the music, the composers, and the time periods of your music fell upon eager ears as my guests were transcended beyond the music itself. Thank you again, Annalisa. Merry Christmas, Al

We had such a pleasant time with Annalisa. She was great to work with as we sorted out the details prior to the event, she was at the home exactly on time, she performed beautifully, and interacted gracefully with our guests. I would have no hesitation recommending AnnalIsa to our other friends and to have her perform at our home again. Thanks and regards, Krishen.
