About
Singer-Songwriter, Ukulele Player and Pianist, and one of Gigmaster's Best of 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018. Thanks for checking out my profile! Since 2010 I have provided music for more than 300 wedding ceremonies, making me one of the most frequently booked wedding performer in the US. I combine the cheerful and relaxing sounds of the uke with smooth, jazz vocals - I can take a song from any era or style and create an original and special performance for your wedding ceremony.

FREE SONG SAMPLE OFFER: I will respond to your request within one hour. Let me know if you'd like to hear a sample of a specific song, I am happy to do a quick recording and send that over to you free of charge. I will work hard to make the music for your wedding memorable, unique and beautiful.

"Johnny brought amazing talent and good vibes to our wedding! Leading up to the big day, he was very communicative and when we asked for a specific request, he quickly sent a sample back and absolutely nailed it. We had very particular goals of making sure our whole day was calm, cool, and authentically us. And Johnny brought his A-game and made sure the music was on point to the vibe we set out for. THANK YOU!" -Ellen O.

"There are no words to express how happy and grateful we are that Johnny was part of our wedding day From the beginning, Johnny was unbelievably accommodating and friendly, and we knew off the bat we could trust him. We weren't necessarily looking for a ukulele player, but Johnny's rendition of Book of Love had us hooked and we knew he was the right fit. From our first call, he made us extremely comfortable and went above and beyond - he learned songs that were special to us, set us up with a violinist for the prelude and ceremony, and sent us an entire list so we could put them on our DJ's "do not play" list for the reception. On the wedding day, he arrived early and was professional and friendly to all. Having live music made a huge impact on the ceremony and he played the songs that were special to us perfectly." -Lisa C.

The event was a huge success. Thanks in no small part to the efforts of Johnny Herbert. Johnny entertained family and friends on our special anniversary party. This included an original song which brought tears of joy to everyone who attended. Johnny, thank you for a wonderful evening.

Johnny was very quick to respond to our request, not only was willing to learn about our non-profit, but he volunteered his time to entertain our members with aphasia, a communication disorder. Johnny is a great ukulele player with a beautiful voice. We are now looking for an excuse to host a party just so we can bring Johnny back!

Johnny was a fantastic choice for our wedding ceremony music. My husband and I knew we did not want to go with the very traditional, stuffy, and expensive harpist/violin/trio option. We also knew we didn't want the DJ playing a premade track booming from speakers for our ceremony. He added a personal, warm, and unique element to our ceremony. He worked with my husband and I to come up with an amazing playlist, and even learned new songs for us! He played Somewhere Over the Rainbow when our small nieces and nephews walked down the aisle and everyone was in tears! For those of you looking for a unique music option to really add a personal touch- definitely book Johnny!

As a GigMasters employee, I've had the pleasure of working with many great vendors and performers, but working with Johnny on my surprise proposal was the best experience I've had. He responded immediately to my request and even cut a quick demo of a song I had specially requested. I knew right away he was the right person to make my proposal even more special. He was incredibly flexible and helpful when coordinating a surprise in a busy location, and when the moment finally came he was just incredible. His music added so much to the experience, and I would recommend him without hesitation for any event or occasion! Thank you, Johnny!

Johnny was amazing! He was apart of a wedding day surprise and accommodated to all our requested. Even on first contact, i knew Johnny was a very professional and gifted musician. He was the only vendor to offer and supply us with a demo of the surprise song in just days. Absolutely outstanding! Highly recommend!!

Johnny was amazing! Such talent! From the moment we contacted him and throughout the experience it was always pleasant, professional and courteous. He learned new songs that were requested by my daughter for the wedding. He also played a couple of Disney tunes on piano during our cocktail hour as he noted some "fairy tail, Disney" moments during the ceremony. We can't thank him enough for creating the ambiance we were looking for. All I can say to someone thinking about hiring him is please do, you won't be sorry!!

John is a terrific talent and was a great addition to my wife's surprise birthday party. He plays beautifully and has a wonderful voice. Personable. Funny. He fit right in. Everyone loved him. His ukulele skills were an added extra and he serenaded us outside on our terrace after playing our piano in the living room. A great find and a great guy.

For my mom's 70th birthday celebration, I hired Johnny to sing and play the ukulele during cocktail hour and play the piano during dinner. Wow! Johnny took the event to the next level. Everyone loved him. He was perfect. I highly recommend Johnny for your next gathering. He is what your guests will remember. Not only is he extremely talented, but he was very professional and accommodating during the hiring process as well as the event. So easy to work with. Thank you so much, Johnny!

We gave Johnny a complicated set of requests: perform 3 songs (singing, guitar, ukulele), but with different groups of family/friends who can only meet the wedding weekend. We needed him to arrange the songs and coordinate the rehearsal. We knew it was a lot. But Johnny’s modest confidence and professionalism earned him the respect of those we asked to perform with him, meant that the performers loved rehearsing, and gave us an end result that was so much better than we expected. Johnny is a talented musician and arranger, and a strong leader. We are truly indebted to him for making our somewhat crazy musical vision come to life. We can't recommend him enough.
