Kevin played the ukulele for my wedding ceremony. He did an amazing job. He was there early to set up and was extremely professional. He was able to play the songs I requested and was able to improvise when the flower girl struggled to walk down the isle and I was still able to walk down to the song I wanted! I would highly recommend him!

Kevin was on time, very pleasant and friendly. He was relaxed but professional without being stiff. He is also an excellent guitarist and played a nice variety in keeping with our requests. While he was playing, we received comments from our guests on how wonderful his music was. Our event was a corporate awards dinner and he played all through the cocktail hour and through dinner. We would highly recommend him for any event and would hire him again in a New York minute. Cudos to Kevin and many, many thanks for adding a special element to our event.

Kevin Shannon played for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. He was fantastic! He was extremely responsive and accommodating when corresponding before the wedding so I never had any doubt that he would be great. He was set up and ready to go before the wedding party even got to the venue. We had requested some songs (including an unusual choice) and he played them beautifully.

We hired Kevin to play for the cocktail hour of our wedding reception and he was fantastic. My wife and I enjoy a lot of Russian Folk guitar music and Kevin was not only able to pick out and play pieces from that genre, but he also went out of his way to find music from a guitarist / composer whom we really liked so that he could play some of his pieces as well. Kevin arrived early and was set up and ready to play when we started. He was friendly, professional, and his music was great. I highly recommend him.

Kevin was punctual, dressed appropriately, very polite and accomodating...did I mention talented? He did a beautiful job and was a wonderful asset to an already lovely venue. He was hired in the 11th hour after a "friend" of my daughter's backed out. She called me in a panic & in tears. In less than 24 hrs with the help of Gigmasters, problem solved. Super pleased.

Kevin was amazing!! On time, professionally dressed (even in the unbearable july heat & humidity), and played beautifully for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Our guests were extremely complimentary of Kevin and his incredible talent. From the beginning, he was easy to work with, learned to play our special requests (and play them perfectly), and was always quick to respond to my messages. I would highly recommend Kevin and simply cannot say enough good things about him! Thank you so much!
