Austin is absolutely amazing. We highly recommend him! He is an incredibly talented musician, and we feel lucky we were able to book him! He was so professional, flexible and even willing to learn a new song on the guitar for our wedding. He took care of all the behind the scenes stuff so we didn't have to worry about any of it, showed up not just on time but early, was all set up, had extra gear, and was just all around outstanding!Sent on 09/11/2019

Austin's guitar playing was exactly what we were looking for to accompany our lakeside wedding ceremony. His repertoire fit our tastes perfectly and he was willing to learn any song we requested. He came fully equipped with a great sound system and wireless microphones for our officiant(s). Throughout the whole process, Austin was extremely professional and helpful. We knew after our initial phone call that he had our best interests in mind and he was going to handle the ceremony music with ease. If you're looking for guitar accompaniment, look no further than Austin Charnis.Sent on 06/26/2019
