WeddingReviewed on April 15, 2023From Milton, GA

Gladius was outstanding for us. He’s extremely talented and all our guys were very happy with his performance. He accommodated all of our special requests and exceeded our expectations. I would recommend Gladis to everyone any day.

Corporate FunctionReviewed on October 6, 2022From Atlanta, GA

We loved having Gladius perform at our event! He made it a great experience for all of our clients that attended!

Review by Laura L.

Wine Tasting PartyReviewed on June 4, 2019From Greenville, SC

One of the most humble and uber-talented musicians I have ever met. Expectations were already high having seen the YouTube videos, but he surpassed even those high expectations. Wow. As an event planner, I get lots of feedback from co-workers and guests alike - all of whom agreed the party would not have been as successful without Gladius. Hope to see him again in GVL!


This was one of the best event and Laura one of my best client. The event was well planned and everything went smoothly. The audience was very generous and was completely involved with the music played at the event. Would love to play again for them.
