Donovan was a tremendous asset to our wine tasting and added that essetial layer of atomosphere to the event. He came early to set up, brought a great sound system that provided great reach throughout our showroom and was a great to work with. He came well dressed and was very personable. I wish we would have had him at our previous events and would not hesitate to use him for our future endeavors. This is on top of his excellent guitar skills. He provided a broad, varied and appropriate catalog of music well suited to the occasion.

It was such an honor to have Donovan perform at our wedding! Our guests were in awe of his talent, and his Spanish guitar really set the mood for our wedding. Not only is he amazingly talented, but he's such a sweet guy and worked so well with our DJ! Talented, professional, really nice - what more could you want in a live guitarist? I can't wait to hire him again in the future!

Donovan gave our wedding a very magical ambiance - my husband and I were so happy to have had him there, and many of our guests later complimented me on how much they loved the music as well. I would hire him again and refer him to friends/family in a heartbeat.

Thanks for everything Donovan...you were very professional and accommodating. I think I would turn up the volume next time! But that was our call, not yours! Enjoy the holidays and hope to work with you again, Charlotte Embassy Suites-Santa Ana

Having Donovan play for my daughter's wedding was the easiest part of the whole planning process. He made the processs effortless! He was incredibly kind and accomodating. The best part was his skill with the guitar! He is amazing. I would recommend Donovan for any type of event. Lynell Sanford
