Not only an amazing guitarist, he is truly a genuine and pleasant person. We have had the pleasure of having him attend a few of our events and have had wonderful feedback from our guests each time.

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.
