    Amazing Florida Keys Musician!

    We hired Chris to perform solo acoustic for our Wedding Ceremony, and our cocktail reception immediately following, at Pierre's in Islamaroda, Fl. It goes without saying that we are exceedingly pleased we were able to have Chris perform on our wedding day. Chris is a popular man, and we actually ensured to reserve him for our day about a year in advance. He was very communicative and easy to work with in the planning process. On the wedding, he was set up early and prepared with wireless mics and mic lapels for our officiant and groom. His sound system was clear and ample for our outdoor wedding. Additionally, our videographers were able to work seamlessly with Chris's setup to plug into the audio feed.

    We had Chris perform acoustic guitar only, with no vocals, during our ceremony. We provided 3 requested songs; one for our processional, one for the bride/father walk, and then the first song to be played after we were announced husband and wife. One of our first memories after being announced is being hearing Chris play that requested song, perfectly timed!

    Chris also did a superb job during our cocktail hour. We had him play musician's choice, and he was able to set an amazing atmosphere to start our reception. It's an easy decision, if you are looking for a talented, relaxed, and professional musician, Chris is the guy. Thank you Chris!

    Great experience

    From my first email to Chris, the communication was excellent. We had a very small wedding at with just very close family, so we just had him and no other musicians for our ceremony and dinner. Throughout the process, I was able to go over a lengthy list of music that he plays, so that I could let him know what songs we liked. He worked with me on the details of our music for the ceremony on the beach at the Islamorada Fish Company in the Florida Keys, and it all worked out beautifully. And, afterward, everyone enjoyed hearing his tunes when we moved over to the Zane Grey Lounge for dinner.
