We hired Paul to play guitar at our son's wedding while the guests were being seated and during processional and recessional at an outdoor venue. Every note that came out of that guitar was beautiful, and many of our guests complimented us on having chosen Paul to play for this occasion. Knowing I was a little nervous about the timing, Paul offered to attend the rehearsal the evening before which went above and beyond. I would definitely recommend his playing skills for any event.

Paul was great to work with! He was responsive and professional throughout the entire process. His playing was a dream, even pushing through the cold rain. Paul graciously provided our videographer a recording to use in our wedding video. I highly recommend Paul, his playing is beautiful and he's a pleasure to work with!

Paul played beautiful Spanish style guitar for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, and took the time to learn a new song that I requested. He is both professional and talented.

Paul was a fantastic addition to our school's Hispanic Culture Celebration! He spoke about the history of the Spanish guitar styles and had a great array of songs. Our audience loved him. He will definitely be on our books for next year.

We hired Paul a few weeks before the event and we were happy he was available on such short notice. He was quick to respond, very accommodating with our requests, and was open to exchanging ideas. He helped set the tone of the party with his music and it was clear that he was “in the zone”. Our guests commented on his talent and the wonderful experience they had! We would hire Paul again without reservations!
