Wedding CeremonyReviewed on July 17, 2023From Kennebunkport, ME

Hands down, Ross McGuiness, should be your number one choice! Amazing performance and knocked it out of the park with his incredible talent. Nothing like having to remind your guests they are there for your wedding celebration and not a concert with Ross McGuiness! JK, but he’s that great! Thanks, Ross for making our special day even more special… you’re the best! See you around KPT! ?? B&J

Cocktail PartyReviewed on August 22, 2022From Kennebunkport, ME

Ross was amazing! We hired him for our Wedding Welcome Party in July 2022. He was the perfect one man band for a crowd of about 175 guests under a tent in Kennebunkport, Maine. He’s a Rock Acoustic Guitarist which was just the right vibe for our Friday night cocktail party. He made sure to ask what type of music we were looking for, and knew exactly what to perform based on our conversations. Ross is very kind, easy to work with, professional, and talented!!

WeddingReviewed on September 2, 2019From Kingston, MA

Wowza! Ross’ pre-wedding communication was wonderful and his musical ability, song choice and overall performance during our big day far exceeded our expectations! We planned every detail of our wedding and while everything went off without a hitch, Ross pretty much stole the show ... and we were okay with that. He’s really that good. We’d give him 6 stars if we could.

Private PartyReviewed on July 17, 2019From Rochester, NH

Ross was fantastic! His song choices were perfect for our event and all the guests really loved him. What a talented performer... beautiful singing voice and excellent guitar player. Arrived early and was completely set up well before the start of our event. Stayed until the very last minute too. Can't say enough good things about Ross Mcginnes. Highly recommend.


Thank you Torey! It was a pleasure playing for you????

Everyone was very happy with the music and talent provided by Ross. He accommodating and learned some special requests we had. Ross contacted me a few times to go over our requests and ensure he had everything we needed. Have recommended Ross to others and the event planner was interested in using Ross for other events

Private PartyReviewed on August 12, 2017From Windham, NH

He was an excellent performer. My guests enjoyed his music and thought he was great. I almost think he sounded better live than on the samples here at Gigmaaters.I would hire him again.

Retirement PartyReviewed on May 1, 2017From Lexington, MA

Ross was amazing; simply perfect. He showed up early, stayed late, and played incredible music with skills that you need to hear to fully appreciate. Everyone was so excited with his music and many people were asking me how to book him for their events. Ross's crowd IQ is amazing - he was able to read the diverse crowd and create such an amazing atmosphere. He knew exactly how the crowd was responding to different music as the night drew and kept it going. If you want a musician who is an expert in his craft, I HIGHLY recommend choosing Ross for your occasion. If I could give Ross six stars, he would be deserving. Well done, Ross!! I can’t wait to hire you again.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on January 23, 2014From Boxborough, MA

I can't praise Ross McGinnes & John enough for their performance at my husband's 40th birthday! They were phenomenal, professional & fun to work with. They met religiously to practice Pink Floyd songs. They played to background PF songs, so it was incredibly realistic & impressive. They were exceptional. It snowed 8 in. the day of, but they arrived 90 mins early to set-up, w/no problems. These guys ROCK. Plain & simple. They are THE BEST! They blew the roof off my house. They rocked my party and guests were blown away. My discerning husband said "They are awesome, they play better than Brit Floyd". If you want the BEST, hire Ross and John. They are phenomenal.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on July 22, 2013From Wethersfield, CT

Ross and his partner Al played at my husband's 50th birthday party in CT this past weekend. Ross was a delight to work with from the beginning. He patiently answered all my questions, was extremely flexible the night of my party, and just has a pleasant demeanor overall. He and Al are very talented and every song they performed sounded great and the crowd loved them all. Their volume level is excellent as well...not too loud that makes it difficult to talk and hear. My husband and I are already talking about when we can hire Ross next!

Graduation PartyReviewed on June 24, 2013From Milford, NH

Ross helped make our son's graduation party a great success. He was very prompt in responding to us. He kept in contact with us the week leading up to the event. We had guests of all ages and everyone really enjoyed listening to him and are still talking about him. He has a great voice and plays a wide variety of music. He had some of our guest trying to hire him for their party but he was already booked. We will definitely be hiring him again in the future.

Grand OpeningReviewed on November 16, 2012From Northampton, MA

We had a national event that we put on for Ford Motor Company in our dealership, and Ross did great. We have over 125 people come through in about 4 hours and everyone really loved his music. I would hire them again if I am in need of music.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on October 20, 2012From Watertown, MA

Ross and his partner were fantastic. We had a lovely party and everyone loved them. Each of the instruments were a great addition. They were fun and personable and just sounded wonderful. We enjoyed every single song. It will be very tough to have a party in the future without live entertainment. They were really great. I almost wish I had fewer guests so I could have just sat and listened for longer. I can't think of anything they could have done better. We'd love to have them back in the future. My family and friends are still commenting on how much they enjoyed the music. Thanks so much!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on August 14, 2012From Hampton, NH

I will be booking Ross for our next party. He made our wedding; was prompt, professional, and easy going. Even though his music style is easy, soft rock....YES, we danced! He has a beautiful voice and is very talented. You won't be dissappointed.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on August 7, 2012From Princeton, MA

Ross, as a person and as a musician, was astonishing. I hired him to play at my wedding ceremony and he was in contact with me throughout the entire planning process, beginning to end. He consistently wanted to make sure that we were on the same page in terms of music and was extremely laid back and professional. I would hire him again in a heart beat and I wish him nothing but the best.

Anniversary PartyReviewed on July 1, 2012From Worcester, MA

I was so pleased with Ross and his partner, Al. They did a wonderful job! They played for 3 hours at our outdoor summer family party and everyone kept commenting on how great the music was. They played so many crowd-pleasing songs that we all know and love. It was the perfect backdrop to the party - not too loud, upbeat and fun. Ross was very relaxed, easy to work with, accomodating and affordable. I would use him again in a heartbeat.

Graduation PartyReviewed on May 30, 2011From North Providence, RI

I hired Ross Mcginnes for a graduation party in a restaurant. Would recommend him and hire him again in a heartbeat. His playlist is carefully selected and each song really well executed. He backs himself up with CD tracks and a bass player so he offers a full sound with good vocals and instrumentals. His playlist is well suited to a guitarist/vocalist/songwriter and includes Allman Brothers, Bon Jovi, Jethro Tull, Jim Croce, John Denver, Neil Young, Pink Floyd and many many others. He covers songs that are recognizable instantly and makes you wonder why they aren't played more often. He is a really nice guy, an excellent musician and genuinely cares about his craft.
