Josh was fantastic!! He set the perfect mood for our party, and everyone loved him - especially our one year-old son, who was totally mesmerized by the ukulele!

From the moment, Josh walked in to the venue, I thought he was a guest! I had an immediate warm feeling towards him, that I felt as if I had known him for decades. I can not say enough about this “rock star”, you have to experience him yourself! One of my most favorite memories of my daughters Baby Shower will always be , Josh”s rendition of “ I want to hold your hand” by the Beatles that got a standing ovation!!! Josh Cho is the most talented guy on GigMasters, just ask my guests. I can not wait to hire him again:)).
