Brian is absolutely wonderful! He is so easy to work with, totally does all his set up on his own. Is a magnificent musician and will play whatever you like! He is also a great guy, very friendly and social. Everyone really enjoyed having him at our wedding! I hope to have another event to hire him again. Highly recommend!

We were thrilled to have Brian perform at our daughter's October '17 outdoor wedding in Ogunquit! Brian was exceptionally responsive to our inquiries and our requests during the planning process. I relied solely on Gigmasters, online reviews, and his personal website in hiring Brian as we live out of state and were planning a "destination" wedding. I feel like I really lucked out! Beyond being a talented musician with an extensive and eclectic repertoire, Brian is personable, professional and very accommodating! I sensed from the onset of this process that we would be happy with his performance and I would not hesitate to hire Brian again!

Brian did a great job and we had so many positive reviews about our cocktail hour! So glad he could be part of our day and would recommend him to anyone looking for a talented musician that can entertain a large group (we had close to 200 guests)! Thanks, Brian!

Brian was the PERFECT fit to our unique October wedding! From the moment I spoke with him about our ideas for our big day there was no question Brian was 'the one' to make it amazing. Without hesitation, he learned to play our favorite songs and played them with ease as though he had been playing them for years. Our guests were singing along and having a blast as though there was a full band! We can't thank him enough for making our intimate celebration so wonderful. He's the BEST!

Brian was incredibly professional and we got so many compliments on his music after the ceremony. He learned an acoustic version of our favorite song for us to walk down the aisle to after we were married. We booked about a month prior to the wedding and he was still willing to learn the song. I hear he did a great job. (I was a little distracted.) We wholeheartedly recommend hiring Brian for your wedding.

I contacted Brian with the intent on hiring him for the church only and I ended up hiring him to play for the cocktail reception as well. He is multi talented and very professional. He made the process so easy for us which was important since we had 5 events over 3 days with close to 400 people. He helped pick music was the perfect musician for the two venues he worked for our only child's wedding. I highly recommend him!

Brian was a pleasure to have and work with on my special wedding day. He could not have done any better. He was so accommodating, professional, and above all kind and a truely talented musician. I only wish I wasn't such a busy bride so I could have told him in person.

Brian was just perfect! He communicated with me several times prior to the event, making sure he had songs we would like; whether it was vocal and/or guitar alone etc. He was on time and had 3 flights of stairs to climb 3 times! Soft-spoken, cute (!) and a very good musician. Event venue was spilt between two rooms, so he had to set-up in tight quarters, but made the best of it, always smiling! I will keep Brian in mind for any other event we have and certainly recommend him to friends. Thank you, Gig Masters for your fine work!
