Brendan was absolutely the perfect choice for our intimate ceremony and cocktail hour. Our planning session was the easiest of all of our vendors, and he had a clear, defined list of information that he needed. He's extremely easy to work with and was open to hearing our requests for non-traditional ceremony music. He learned three new songs for us and played them beautifully! The cocktail hour was relaxing and peaceful thanks to his mix of traditional and classic acoustic guitar songs. All of my friends and family raved about his playing, and we couldn't be happier with his services. We'd highly recommend him for your event!

I can't say enough good things about Brendan. He has such talent, and was able to customize our ceremony by adapting our songs to an instrumental version. He was more than willing to Skype with us (I was organizing from out of state) and talk through our expectations, music preferences, and logistics. He helped make our day seamless, but really his talent speaks for itself. I cannot recommend him more highly--simply fantastic.

Gosh, is this guy talented!!! We hired Brendan to play the dinner portion of our wedding. What a fantastic hire he was!!
SUPER easy to work with, and I sent him a lengthy play list, which he responded to by confirming he could play nearly ALL our requests (a few were orchestral pieces, so, didn't translate to a solo guitarist). He also took the time to learn a song I had requested as a special surprise for my husband, which was really sweet and appreciated.
Not only was Brendan incredibly professional and approachable, his playing was purely beautiful. The dinner portion of our wedding was more of an elegant dinner party for a small group, and he was the perfect background accompaniment. We had nothing but compliments about his playing from all the guests. And, as someone who knows a bit about music, I can assert he truly is a natural talent, and was so at ease performing. It was like he belonged at our event, playing classical and Spanish guitar, and enhancing the night.
