Tracked me down well in advance to clarify logistics, dress code, room set-up, etc... Arrived early, stayed late. Well groomed and well mannered. Took no break. Most accommodating regarding my requested "set-list". Very accomplished performer.

Russell did a great job playing at our Engagement party! He was very professional and responsive throughout the whole process. I made many recommendations for specific songs from his provided list, and he was able to accommodate my requests. I would definitely hire him to play at another event of ours in the future. So many of our guests really enjoyed the music he played. I'm really glad that we picked Russell as our guitarist, and we hope to work with him again in the future.
