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:)).

We hired Josh for our luau theme party at our NY Junior League event. Josh was excellent! He came dressed the part with a Hawaiian shirt and he played the ukulele. All was perfect. He’s a really nice guy and easy to work with. I highly recommend Josh!!!

Although this review is about a full year overdue, Josh Cho's utter professionalism, amiability, and skill compelled me to make sure I came back, no matter how long, and let everyone know what a genuinely wonderful human being this man is. Aside from being one of the most personable and down to Earth people my family and I have ever had the privilege of meeting, his music transcends skill; his ability to transport you to tropical shores and warm sea breezes all through his ukulele is impressive as it is magical, and I could not recommend Josh more. My family didn't want Josh to go, he is truly the type of person you feel as though you've known all your life.

We hired Josh for our 8/2017 wedding back in October 2016. Since he lived locally to us, we got to hear him play in person. We knew instantly that we wanted him for our waterfront ceremony! He was so easy to communicate with via email, he answered all our questions quickly. He met me in person again about 2 weeks beforehand to make sure he had all the details correct. I can vividly remember waiting to walk down the aisle and listening to him play for the bridal party processional, it sounded AMAZING. I have received so many compliments on his behalf since. I highly recommend Josh for any event you need!
