EventReviewed on August 28, 2021From Deerfield, NH

John Tavano was wonderful. He arrived early, set up quickly and played just beautifully for our annual haiku gathering. Many of the poets want to book him for their events!

Corporate FunctionReviewed on December 11, 2019From Ipswich, MA

John (and Mike) was wonderful to work with! He arrived on time, set up and began playing right on schedule - the music was a beautiful backdrop for our small corporate event, which everyone is still talking about … it added the special "class" factor. I will definitely reach out in the future to hire him for other events - personal and private.

John played background music at our rehearsal dinner at the House of the Seven Gables. He was fabulous! His repertoire and his sound were just right for the occasion. Quite a few of our guests commented on how good he was.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on August 9, 2014From Parsonsfield, ME

John was great. Our ceremony was running behind schedule due to rain and crazy traffic. John managed to arrive early and played for a lot longer than he was scheduled to. The music was beautiful and he is truly talented, everyone really enjoyed it and it was perfect for our setting. I would highly recommend john to anyone looking for a true professional who enjoys soft, acoustic guitar for their event. Thank you john.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on May 24, 2014From Atkinson, NH

John was awesome. He was so accommodation as we had a 30+ minute delay due to rain had to move the ceremony inside but John worked him magic and performed beautifully. I can't thank him enough. I also highly recommend any one interested in hearing John you can listen to him in a neat cafe in Newburyport. Thank you so much for helping make this a very special day for Lindsay & Chad.

Private PartyReviewed on September 16, 2008From Newburyport, MA

At our event we had a a very diverse crowd for the US, Mexico and overseas. John's selection and blend of classical music from around the world was a hit with all. They appreciated the music and John returned their appreciation with warmth and enthusiasm. We look forward to planning another event with John.
