We hired Josh to provide ceremony and cocktail hour music for our daughter's wedding this past July 2016. From the initial email communication through the close of his time with us, Josh exemplified a level of professionalism that exceeded our expectations. He arrived early/in a timely fashion, clean-cut and well-dressed, and delivered a wonderful performance for our guests. We will not hesitate to reach out to Josh for another event (or even another child's wedding ;-)!!
