She was amazing. This was my first time hiring a musician for a party & I was a little nervous. Everything was just so easy from start to finish with her. She was the perfect addition to the party, not only did the guests absolutely love her, the neighbors did too. We were worried about possible noise complaints, but instead received song requests from neighbors who sat on their porches to listen in. Natalie spent her break learning how to play one of those song requests that she wasn’t familiar with. She absolutely nailed it, along with everything else she played/sang. She’s super cute, talented, and professional and we look forward to working with her again.

Natalie was an absolute pleasure to work with! Communication was stellar, and she was more than willing to accommodate our specific "style" requests. 10/10, would recommend.

She was an excellent singer and entertainer ! She stayed nearly a couple hours beyond her scheduled performance and I was actually concerned during the reception that she needed to take a break and have something to eat. I was just glad that we were able to booked with her on a holiday weekend for my daughter's wedding. It made the night more special and memorable on her special day !

I hired Natalie to perform at my husband's 50th birthday celebration and she was fantastic in every aspect! I found her to be incredibly responsive, warm and professional when we communicated about the plans for the party. She provided a song list that allowed me to make selections and show her what kind of mood we wanted, plus she kindly learned three songs of our choice for the evening. Natalie's voice is beautiful and unique and her talent on the guitar and ukulele are tremendous. We loved the music and our guests were truly blown away! She made the evening so special. Hire her... now.

If you are lucky enough to book Natalie Gelman then I would do it. I requested her through Gigmasters and she quickly responded. She was very accommodating both in designing a perfect play list for the wedding reception and in regards to the timing. I planned a surprise for my bride which Natalie was very ready to coordinate with my photographer and me. Everyone loved her at the dinner and even to her surprise we were all up dancing to her enchanting acoustic guitar. A night to be remembered by all. Thanks Natalie for making it a wonderful evening.

We loved Natalie! Everyone who attended our wedding raved about her and how amazing she sang. We really couldn’t have asked for more, she has a beautiful voice. Great selection of songs, she was kind and professional, and she went the extra mile to make sure our day was perfect. We’re so lucky to have found her! Will definitely hire her for other events!

Natalie was wonderful. She was professional, talented, accommodating, and added something so special to our wedding. Her folksy vibe went perfectly with our venue. She learned a song for us and played it beautifully during the ceremony. We also chose one of her original songs to be played during the ceremony and it was great. Our guests were impressed by her and I can honestly say she was one of my favorite parts of my wedding (my husband agrees!). I would highly recommend her!

Thank you so much Melody! It was an honor to work with you and your husband on your wedding music. Love the pieces you chose and had me learn, maybe I’ll see you two at a Patty Griffin concert if she ever tours out here. :) Congrats again!!

Natalie was a wonderful professional and very talented musician. Working with her was like working with a family member. She understood exactly what was needed , And went 180% maybe 200% above and beyond what we were expecting. It was a pleasure working with her and she made my daughter's wedding and intimate memorable experience. we are a fan of hers forever.

I give her 5 stars for her performing at my wedding. She was absolutely fabulous worked great with me, even though I changed my mind like 100 times. She even learned a couple new songs to make my wedding perfect. Any future events I do and need a live musician I'm going to hire again.

We hired Natalie to perform for our wedding ceremony and cocktail reception. She went above and beyond to make our big day extra special, learned new songs that we requested and even worked with one of our friends to perform together during the ceremony. Her performance was flawless. Through the entire planning process, Natalie communicated promptly, making sure we were always on the same page. Talented, professional, and just an overall kind, thoughtful and wonderful person! THANK YOU NATALIE!

Natalie performed for our family of 14, on an outside patio where we were seated around a fire pit. She did an outstanding job. She has an excellent voice--kind of "bluesy" with a good range. Her guitar and ukulele playing are both excellent. She readily adapted to what we wanted to hear, adding a few of own choices which were well received. But what makes her unique is her ability to relate to her audience and get them involved. She was both a true professional and likable in all aspects.

I was fortunate enough to have Natalie be part of my surprise proposal. My proposal involved having a guitarist learn my fiance's favorite Colbie Caillat songs and then perform them on a Big Sur beach. Not only did Natalie stay in constant communication with me in order to get the set-up of the songs just right, but her attitude and energy was so comforting. She drove up from Ojai to Big Sur, was on time and coordinated with my photographer to be in the perfect spot. Natalie's talent is absolutely beautiful. She performed amazingly in acoustic fashion while on the beach. She sang and played the songs exactly the way I had pictured it and made the proposal perfect.
