We had Brian in to play our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour and he was absolutely fantastic! Firstly, he is an extremely talented musician. We received so many compliments about the music during the ceremony and happy hour, so that should say it all. Secondly, Brian was such a pleasure to correspond and organize details with. His responses were prompt, courteous, and he answered all questions we asked of him. If you're in Maine and looking for a live performer for your event, look no further than Brian, you will not be disappointed. Thank you Brian for making our wedding all the more memorable!

Such a talented, professional guitarist- perfect for a wedding ceremony!
Brian was amazing to work with. He was very communicative (great emailer!) and had a fantastic list of songs to choose from for our wedding ceremony. When I heard him start to strum Canon in D by Pachelbel as I entered the ceremony with my father, his performance couldn't have been more perfect for that moment. He also nailed Yellow Ledbetter during the prelude, which me and my husband absolutely loved (huge Pearl Jam fans!). Brian is a fantastic artist and came very prepared and even had a lapel mic for our officiant. I highly recommend him if you're considering music at your ceremony and/or reception!

Highly Recommended Soloist
After reviewing Brian on The Knot, we decided to hire him to play at our wedding and the first hour of the reception. We spoke with him a couple times leading up to the big day to finalize our play list. Brian also brought up questions that we would not have thought to ask, such as (1) whether or not cords would be in the way of guest or of he should use a battery to keep things looking clean, (2) if we needed a lapel mic for our officiant and (3) how we'd like him to transition from ceremony to reception. Brian showed up plenty early to setup and was very professional and easy to work with. I would highly recommend him.
Brian is a delight to work with, I've performed with him for the past few years (funerals, weddings) and he is reliable, friendly and easy to work with. He has a large repertoire of music and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding guitarist and/or reception music! Sincerely, Christina Siravo Wedding Singer
We have shot several weddings that Brian has performed the ceremony music. His professionalism and timing is of the highest quality that we have included the soundtrack in the final movie production. His music is a wonderful compliment to the ceremony. Brian always communicates with us so that we could anticipate the music program and the timely changes. He is truly a professional musician.
