CelebrationReviewed on February 28, 2024From Seattle, WA

Ford was exactly what we wanted for our event. His selection of songs was interesting and appropriate, and the volume of his music didn't overwhelm the attendees talking and mingling during our event. He was a terrific add to the 2nd year of this now annual event.

Guitar by FORD:

thanks for the great review. Feedback is always appreciated and helps fine tune for the next event. Your warm receptive crowd made it a memorable gig. thanks for having me. best, Ford

WeddingReviewed on April 4, 2023From Woodinville, WA

Ford was hired as a guitarist for our wedding ceremony and reception. I requested a specific song and he had no problem learning it, playing it and timing my walk down the aisle so it would be perfect. He played background music throughout our reception and did a beautiful job. We would highly recommend him for any event. He arrived early, set up and transitioned completely by himself not once asking us for a thing. He made our reception flawless, cannot thank him enough.

WeddingReviewed on October 16, 2022From Woodinville, WA

Ford was a wonderful addition to our wedding. He spent extra time planning all of the details with us and everything was flawless. While he started as someone we didn't know, he left us as another friend. Highly recommended.

Guitar by FORD:

Chris & Rissa, Thanks for having me - not just to play, but welcoming me in to be a part of your life experience. It left me with a great memory, not just for myself, but for how you involved everyone in the room. I also left the evening knowing I had made new friends. thanks again. God bless you guys in your future together! sincerely, Ford

Retirement PartyReviewed on July 27, 2017From Seattle, WA

Ford did a fantastic job of accommodating my needs for my retirement party. He made a special effort to not disturb the event in the next room, but yet was loud enough for everyone in my venue to listen and enjoy his music. As far as the music is concerned, his upbeat jazz music fit right in to the occasion. I received numerous compliments on finding him.

Guitar by FORD:

thanks Tom, I appreciate the opportunity to play for you and your friends, and the great review. Best wishes in your future. Enjoy your retirement!! I hope our paths cross again. Ford

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on July 17, 2018From Battle Ground, WA

We had a wonderful time with Ford (Guitar by Ford) playing popular melodies and taking requests for different songs by our guests. He played beautiful background music for our Party and gave it the right mood. Everybody liked Ford. Hi was also open to talk about his music and his life as a musician. We recommend him for any garden or house party - we had fun!

Ford is amazing!!! He really paid attention to every detail of our wedding and made it so special. His ability to play the guitar is incredible. He was able to play every song that I requested and it sounded great! We also really enjoyed his original music. I would highly recommend him to play music at your event. He will NOT disappoint! Very talented musician.....

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on July 2, 2015From Poulsbo, WA

Ford was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. My daughter - the bride, chose some less traditional songs for her processional for him to learn acoustically. I now understand all that goes into timing a chorus in a song so it doesn't sound choppy or pieced together. He knew how to make the music flow seamlessly and beautifully. Our guests really appreciated the ambiance his music brought to the cocktail hour - professional and classy. He was an important part of the overall success of this wonderful day. I highly recommend Ford.

Ford was great to work with, and quick to respond when coordinating details. Not to mention, he plays great music! He was just the ticket for our Fiesta themed dinner.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on July 8, 2017From North Vancouver, BC

We hired Ford for our wedding ceremony in North Vancouver. He showed up early. During the ceremony the music was on point and sounded amazing. This was an outdoor wedding and his sound travelled well. I would recommend Ford to all my friends!

Ford is great to work with and I highly recommend him for weddings, parties and other gigs. He's very talented and played a great selection of prelude music at our wedding. He arrived on time, set the right tone and our guests enjoyed the mood he set. You can't go wrong.

Private PartyReviewed on June 7, 2018From Seattle, WA

Ford, We were so happy with your music, but mid-event, a man in a wheel-chair accidentally drove over your cords. You threw a fit that everyone witnessed, and we bit our tongue. That elderly man passed away last month, and well now I have the courage to tell you that you were THE ONLY LOW POINT IN AN OTHERWISE very special wedding. PLEASE REMEMBER IN THE FUTURE THAT WHAT MATTERS IN LIFE IS HOW YOU MAKE OTHERS>>>>> FEEL

Guitar by FORD:

hi Julie, I remember the situation well. I remember panic, not fit. The amp crashing to the floor and running across the room to save my guitar from being next put my heart in my mouth. I had a word with him twice to let him know it was ok- at the time, and when they left. i did not want him to feel bad- it was an accident. I am sorry to hear of his passing and if my actions appeared unprofessional. I appreciate your review, I have a fond memory of the gig - awesome setting and very comfortable crowd. Thanks for the reminder; my music is designed to enhance - not detract. I was aware of that at the time, so humbly apology if my demeanor got the best of me.

Ford was the perfect addition to my husband’s birthday party! He was so responsive leading up to the event and everyone raved about his performance. We are so pleased we booked him.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on April 15, 2019From Des Moines, WA

Ford is friendly, professional and talented. He arrived with plenty of time to set up, and conferred with me about music selection. Loved the variety of classical, jazz & cover of “classic rock”. It created the perfect mood for my laid-back, friendly birthday party. People stopped by afterwards to thank him for his music. I’ll hire him again & recommend him to friends.

Ford is very talented and he brought a lovely and fun element to our party. It was an eclectic crowd and everyone commented about how good Ford was and how much they enjoyed the music. My husband and I hope to have him attend future gatherings.
