So talented and accommodating!!
Austin was the absolute best choice that we made for music for our wedding. We needed to quickly put together a micro-wedding when COVID hit, and Austin was willing and able to accommodate our every need. He was so patient when I took forever to respond amidst the chaos of the pandemic, he was willing to work with us on anything we needed, and he always responded to my emails/texts so quickly. I also come from a family of musicians, so I knew they had to be impressed with our wedding music. The first thing one of my musician aunts said in our group text when our wedding Zoom started was "the guitarist is great!". Austin will be sure to impress even the toughest of critics. Hire him for your wedding!!!Sent on 01/22/2021

Extraordinary guitarist and a pleasure to work with
We hired Austin to perform at our intimate wedding on the Lyndhurst Estate earlier this month. In addition to being an extraordinary guitarist with a fantastic repertoire, Austin was such a pleasure to work with and a delightful person. From beginning to end, he was extremely responsive and accomodating (even when we changed up the music selections just a few days before!) He played beautifully throughout the evening and made each moment special for us. We highly recommend Austin for any event!Sent on 10/28/2020
