He was easy to work with, friendly, and a really, really talented musician. And we received SO many compliments from our guests on how much they enjoyed the music he played!" -Sarah & Matt | Married June 25, 2022 "We are so happy we decided to book Austin. He was so easy to communicate with and was so flexible about all of our music choices - he has a long list of songs in his repertoire, but was even kind enough to learn a brand new song that we specially requested because it was meaningful to us. And of course, he sounded beautiful on the day of. If you want a special and unique addition to your wedding day music, I would definitely go with Austin." -Hannah & Frank | Married June, 2022 "Austin preformed at our ceremony on May 1, 2022. He was great to work with, he's a good communicator, asked questions, followed our few suggestions and worked out a great set list. We were super pleased with his music and recommend him highly!" -Iwona and Rafal | Married May 1, 2022 "Met Austin online and what you see is what you get. Great communication from start to finish. As a fellow musician, I was able to communicate in a familiar language, but even if I had not been, Austin was clear on our music choices and came in prepared to keep the evening warm with beautifully covered songs, improvised like a true professional. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the music which complimented the space and enhanced our special evening. I would highly recommend Austin Charnis for intimate weddings and similar occasions!" -Alan & Katharyn | Married February, 2022 "Austin is an absolute gem of a find! He came recommended by another young musician who told us "I know someone who will make your day magic" and Austin delivered! Every communication we had felt like speaking to a friend, someone you would trust with these precious moments. He was so flexible (we kept changing our song choices) and when we finally settled, he played them all SO beautifully! He added heart to our ceremony and soul to our cocktail hour. He even helped facilitate all of the toasts during dinner, going above and beyond the role of a musician. I could not be happier with Austin, and am hoping to find an excuse to have another party so that I can hire him again :) -Brigitte & Adam | Married October, 2021 "Austin performed acoustic guitar and provided the sound for our outdoor wedding ceremony and cocktail hour this past fall and his performance helped to create exactly the atmosphere that my husband and I were looking for! From the very start, Austin was quick to respond and provided us with clear options for the music choices we were looking for. Even when we had to postpone our wedding due to COVID-19, Austin was accommodating and supportive. I highly recommend Austin to anyone looking for beautiful music to set the mood for any event!" -Heather & Dan | Married October, 2021

Review by Samuel B.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on August 21, 2023From Fleischmanns, NY

Austin provided the music for our wedding ceremony. He is a great guitarist and was incredibly easy to work with. The samples on his website were really helpful and his repertoire encompasses a wonderfully broad range of music in different genres. We had some specific requests for the ceremony songs which Austin was happy to accommodate. A few short conversations, along with a simple form for music requests, was all that it took to prepare a great performance. His playing was beautiful, and we received compliments about the music from our guests. We definitely recommend Austin for anyone looking to have a talented guitarist at their wedding!

Austin Charnis:

Thanks so much, Sam. I'm so glad you found the process to be easy and that you and your guests were happy with the music. Congratulations!

CelebrationReviewed on August 29, 2022From Redding, CT

Austin was very sensitive to our requests for the memorial service we had. He provided background music for this celebration of life. He is a very talented guitar player- not only being able to play a variety of music but in his expressiveness. We are a family of guitar players who do not compliment lightly. He accommodated song requests outside of his play list- learning them before the memorial.. The nature of our event was stressful and Austin easily relieved us of concerns regarding the music portion through professionalism, competence, reliability and general friendliness. I’d certainly recommend him to anyone planning an event.

Austin Charnis:

Thank you so much Joan, It was truly an honor to be a part of this beautiful celebration of life, and I'm so glad I was able to contribute to it and relieve some stress while doing so! Wishing you all the best! -Austin

Review by Ann P.

Cocktail PartyReviewed on October 6, 2018From Gardiner, NY

This review is long overdue but Austin played at our welcome party in Gardiner, NY the night before our wedding and he was incredible. He worked with the venue to ensure their sound requirements would be met and provided his own sound system. He was timely and extreme polite, responsive, professional, and friendly. Not to mention his music was of course beautiful! Thank you so much, Austin! Our guests had a great experience and your music completely made the night!

Austin Charnis:

Thanks Ann! I really enjoyed playing at the party. It was a beautiful venue and everyone had great energy. I'm so glad that it made your night special and that the guests enjoyed it. Hope to work together again sometime! :)
