Reviews:

“Justin was fantastic. Before the wedding: while traditional songs for the processional were available, we wanted something a little different for our wedding. Justin was very patient with us and extraordinarily helpful in suggesting fitting music for our ceremony. I was very pleased with his communication and professionalism, and it was a big relief to know both that Justin had the music under control so we had one less thing we had to worry about. During the wedding: Justin played beautifully and it was exactly what we wanted. We had several guests mention what a wonderful job Justin did, and I couldn't be happier with his service. I would definitely recommend Justin to anyone searching for a professional musician to play at their wedding."
-Seth, Wrightsville Beach, NC.

“The music for the ceremony was perfect.  I wish that I was able to enjoy the cocktail hour but I heard it was wonderful.  Thank you for helping make the day special!”
-Fabry, Jacksonville, NC.

“Justin played classical guitar for our wedding ceremony in August and as the bride and groom, we only caught the tail end of his amazing performance. However, nearly every single one of our guests complimented us on the incredibly beautiful music that Justin played during our ceremony. We couldn't imagine our ceremony without Justin and we highly recommend him to anyone seeking a truly gifted and highly talented guitarist.”
-Steven and Marcella

“We enjoyed your music so much! It was the perfect day! Thanks Justin.”
-Natalie, Ocean Isle, NC.


Justin's words on weddings:

"I am honored to have played for hundreds of weddings over the years. It is always a privilege to be a part of a day that people will remember for the rest of their lives."

"For any event in a location without power nearby I have a great battery powered amplifier that puts out more than enough volume and has an excellent sound quality. This has worked especially well for beach weddings and any other outdoor location."


Justin's style, experience, and reliability makes him the perfect choice for any event.

I booked Dr. Hoke to play for my first wedding anniversary and my wife and I absolutely loved the experience. Dr. Hoke is an amazing musician. He was able to play all of the requested tunes and played them with absolute perfection. I would highly recommend his services for any special occasion. Thanks again for making the trip to Raleigh!

Working with Dr. Hoke was an absolute pleasure. The wedding planning process is incredibly overwhelming and I cannot explain fully how grateful I was to have found Justin. He was professional, quick to respond, and accommodating during every point of our planning with him. Concerts and music in general, especially guitar, have been a big part of my life and it was important to me that we find someone with real talent to play during our wedding ceremony. We were blown away by Justin's repertoire and the skill with which he performed some of our non-traditional requests. We received so many compliments on the ceremony music and I cannot recommend him more highly.

18 days before my wedding I was panicking because a family friend who was supposed to play guitar at our ceremony backed out. Justin eased my mind by responding quickly and accommodating the list of songs that I had already compiled before talking to him, even those that weren't in his repertoire. His quick communication was very reassuring so close to my wedding. His previous experience with beach weddings and his own sound system were an added benefit. I heard nothing but compliments from my guests. Justin was great at timing his music perfectly to the ceremony and his guitar music was a perfect addition to my wedding at Ocean Isle Beach.

Justin was awesome to work with! He was very helpful with the music selection and made the process easy for us. We wanted a particular song for our recessional and Justin was more than happy to learn it for us! We liked him so much we asked him to play for the cocktail hour as well. His range of music is very broad so you get a nice variety. He is very professional and extremely talented. Hire Justin for your wedding, you will not be disappointed!

I thought the music was beautiful as did all of my guests. Even though our processional and bridal March songs were not on Justin's list, he came through and even sent us a recording before hand for us to approve.

Justin Hoke provided music for my son’s vineyard wedding and the cocktail hour that followed. Highly recommend. He provides a list of most popular selections, and is very responsive to questions. He was prompt, professional, and plays beautifully!!! Very glad we booked him....
