Chris did a wonderful job for our private party. He is extremely professional, showed up on time and has a beautiful voice. Our guests were very impressed and he was the perfect addition to our party. We will definitely use him again.

Kaley and Matt and everyone at the event for Moir Park were wonderfully accommodating, respectful and enthusiastic. I had a legitimately great time playing music and meeting everyone. I look forward to crossing paths again!

Chris played an amazing role in creating the perfect vibes for both our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. He was accommodating for our request for instrumental songs for the ceremony, and guests raved about his vocals during the cocktail hour. Many friends and family said that he was one of the best parts of the wedding, and we strongly agree. His talent is very clear, and we highly recommend him for anyone looking to add amazing live music to their event!

Chris, thank you so very much for your kind heart and patient presence at the celebration of life for my uncle. I am truly grateful to you for your patience as there were alot of unknowns about timing and set up. You’re music is incredible and it meant so much to have your beautiful singing there to comfort and provide peace to a grieving family. Truly amazing. Bless you! Thank you again. Forever grateful for your kindness, Tara

Chris was great to work with! He was prompt in all communications, and even hosted a call to let us talk through the event and what songs would work well. Each of the ceremony songs we selected were not on his list but he had no issues learning them and played them perfectly! I personally loved the music and got a lot of feedback from guests that the ceremony music was great and set the perfect tone! Our wedding was DIY in a backyard so he also provided all the AV equipment (him and officiant). We had a mic issue at the beginning, but like a pro Chris swooped in and got a fresh working mic up in no time!

Thanks so much - I felt terrible about the mic situation but was relieved everyone was patient, understanding, and that we were all able to roll with it - and all the guests could hang on every word and revel in the beauty of the day and your thoughtful vows. It's hard to believe how amazing the backyard looked and perfect the weather and everything else was that day. It was a joy to learn your requested songs and I wish you all the best. Thanks for having me be a part of your ceremony!

Chris Koza is very talented- I feel extremely fortunate to have had him perform at my wedding. Multiple guests at my wedding remarked what a great performer he is and I fully agree. He is a soulful artist with wonderful original songs, but he is also willing to play covers (which he plays very well). Chris is also very professional and exudes affability. I HIGHLY recommend him!!

Amazing. Very talented. Learned and played all the songs we requested and made it a beautiful ceremony. He needed no direction at all. Just knew what to do and how to do it. Could not have been happier. So glad he was part of our day!

Chris Koza’s Response:

Jen and Dustin are a wonderful couple and the ceremony was beautiful. We didn't know whether were going to be outside or inside due to rain and they were very patient and understanding with the extra time it took to set-up while making the decision. It was a privilege to learn the special songs and thank you for inviting me to be a part of your celebration. Best wishes to you on your new adventure together! I hope to stay in touch!

Chris was a delight to work with! He was the perfect blend of professional and warm. He has a beautiful voice, and we enjoyed both his original songs and requested oldies and covers. He was very accommodating with our group and our special requests for the evening. Chris Koza's performance made our special event very special indeed! Can't wait to hire him again!

Chris Koza’s Response:

Almost immediately I felt like part of the family - it was a whirlwind of introductions and surprise collaborations that made for many heartfelt and off-the-cuff moments. Maya and everyone else made sure I had what I needed and was a thorough communicator leading up to the event. It was a privilege and a joy to have been invited to be a part of this celebration for such an impressive lifetime milestone, and I would be sincerely honored should I be lucky enough to find my way back for another one down the road. Many heartfelt thanks.

Seriously amazing at every turn. It was even raining and poor guy was put there playing his tunes. He knew exactly at what moment to start and play and stop. We didnt even discuss it. Hire him because you will not be disappointed! Super nice and professional all the way. -A super happy bride.

I would highly recommend Chris for any wedding or event. He did an absolutely amazing job. We are still getting compliments from our guests on how wonderful he was. Wedding/event planning can be stressful, however Chris was so easy to work with and helpful; working with him was a breath of fresh air! He answered any questions I had, offered advise, and even made a special trip so we could practice a song together. He truly went above and beyond to make our day great. He had a great list of songs to choose from, and learned songs that we had requested. He is very talented and we are forever grateful that we had him play at our ceremony! He truly made it more special!

Chris was fantastic! He was attentive, accommodated our requests, and offered suggestions on how best to arrange/adjust things. I received so many compliments on the music - for many people raving about the music was the first thing they said to me at my wedding. He has my family and friends in tears during the ceremony (in the best way possible!).

Chris did an amazing job at our outdoor wedding! He was accommodating and provided sound for our ceremony and also helped my husband and I set up to do a live performance for our guests. Along with being incredibly personable, Chris is versatile and provided both an iPod playlist and performed a live set. His set was incredibly varied and included a number of songs that he learned upon our request. His voice and playing lent themselves well to every song and sounded incredible.

Chris did everything you would expect from a singer/guitarist from the way he handled the hiring process, to special request, to announcements throughout the reception. All around u couldn't expect much more from a performer, his music talent is A1, I would hire him again. He just has an all around friendly, professional personality. Thank You so much for doing such a great job on short notice.
