John was perfect! He and I communicated very well before the event. We both had clear understandings of the party and the overall plans. He showed up early to set up. He was very professional in all of our dealings. Now, for the real info. John is very talented. His music selection was perfect. A mix of 80's to today. He has a great voice and such ease in his delivery. He was great background music for the cocktail hour and dinner. Then when we could dance and really enjoy his music. He was perfection. During breaks, he accommodated our kids and their requests for some dance music (they are 10, so they wanted line music and What does the fox say)"

John helped us out after we had our guitarist fall through. He was prompt, professional, and willing to work with us on learning new songs and making the event great! He was very easy to work with and I would recommend him to others.
