Barry was great, a perfect choice for my mom's 70th birthday party with close family and friends. His selection of music matched the likes of almost everyone in attendance. Barry is very personable and most everyone wandered over to chat with him in admiration of his talent. I would strongly recommend Barry for any event.

Barry was amazing to work with for our wedding! He was one of our least stressful vendors to deal with. After talking initially about what we wanted we met a couple of months out from the wedding to go over our requested set list for the wedding and cocktail hour and while almost all the songs we picked were from his repertoire he was totally willing to learn a couple of new songs for us. Meeting with him was effortless and his performance at the wedding ceremony was amazing - including working with 3 family members who sang a song. We also had great feedback from our guests for the cocktail hour and from our DJ and wedding coordinator. Thank you so much Barry!

We are so happy that Barry Pollack played at our wedding. Not only was he an extremely talented musician, but he was incredibly accommodating and went out of his way to be sure that the music was exactly what we wanted. On a personal note he was friendly, warm and enjoyable. Barry was a delightful addition to our small garden wedding and we are indebted to him for being one of the reasons it was such a wonderful day. It turned out to be such a lovely wedding, and Barry is a big part of the reason why. We cannot recommend him highly enough. Thanks so much, Barry!

Barry was excellent! He is a well-experienced pro and was very reliable. He came prepared, on time, and his playing was beautiful. He played our wedding ceremony and a cocktail hour afterward and everybody loved hearing the music. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a classical guitar player to play at their wedding ceremony.

We were so pleased to have Barry playing at our wedding! He was incredibly accommodating and flexible, helping us plan the flow of our ceremony and graciously allowing us to utilize his mic and amplifier. The "setlist" he helped us put together was beautiful and a great fit for the event. Very professional from start to finish. I would not hesitate to recommend Barry to anyone!
