Private PartyReviewed on August 19, 2022From Lewis Center, OH

Paul is a very talented guitarist and plays a wide variety of songs to keep things interesting. He was very cognizant of his volume across my three tiered patio such that he blended very nicely into the background of your conversations with guests and yet he was loud enough to be heard by everyone. Paul played tirelessly for three straight hours and after that was generous enough to provide guitar backing for some vocals the guests tried to provide at the end of a good party. He clearly loves his music and shares that with his audience. He also answered many questions from would be guitarists through the evening.

WeddingReviewed on June 18, 2022From Granville, OH

Paul did a fantastic job all around! He was extremely communicative and wanted to be sure he was playing exactly what I wanted. He provided great suggestions and even sent video clips of specific songs I requested. All of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed his music throughout the ceremony. I'm so glad I found Paul and I highly recommend him!

FundraiserReviewed on November 6, 2020From Carmel, IN

Paul Gregory Whitt responded to our search for a solo guitarist to play for guests at a black tie dinner fundraiser. Paul is talented, polite, professional and gracious; he certainly exceeded our expectations. He is very quick to respond to messages or phone calls. I found it extraordinary that he would drive 3 hours to play our event; also offering to donate a generous portion of his service to our cause. We received many compliments on his behalf from guests during and following the event. I highly recommend Paul Gregory Whitt and we look forward to having him again.
