Can I start by saying… if we could bring Christopher into our family, we would. He is absolutely the kindest and most genuine young man you would ever want to meet.
In our search for a musician, we were being quoted insane prices along with emails not being returned by many we tried to contact. We were quickly becoming frustrated, and then came Christopher who was “heaven sent”. After listening to him play on you-tube, we knew he was the one.
His work ethic is something to be admired, and rarely seen in these days & times. From beginning to end, he ALWAYS promptly got back with us on any questions we had. His wiliness to accommodate all of our song choices was appreciated tremendously.
The day of the wedding, Chris was there on time, and was prepared. He played during the ceremony and reception, and the music was just lovely. He is an astounding classically trained guitarist, and his love for music/playing shines through. His music added such a pleasant ambiance to the event; it truly made the day even that more special.
Bottom line, Christopher is a rare gem, if you are considering using him, don't give it a second thought, you will be beyond pleased. He was a blessing through the whole process, such a sincere young man.
Thank you, Christopher, from the bottom of our hearts.
Kara, Cameron, & the Greco family.

Christopher was amazing! He was on time to our ceremony, played incredible music, and was very professional. Our venue did not allow large speakers and Chris had his own little speaker and was able to set up in an area that did not require much space.
During the initial stage of looking for a musician, my fiancee (which is now my wife) requested a song to be played during the recessional part of the ceremony. I asked around, but Christopher was the only one that took the initiative to find the score and learn it. That speaks volume!
He played all of the requested music at the right time. Everything sounded beautiful and it was perfect. I couldn't ask for more. He was also easy to talk to and stayed a little bit longer than his hired time. Before going home, he made sure to say congratulations to each of us personally. I recommend him to anyone looking to hire a talented, professional, and easy to work with musician. Thank you, Christopher!

Christopher played at our wedding last month and we were so impressed! He was quick to respond to all emails, and made it extremely easy for us to pick out the right ceremony and cocktail hour songs. We received many compliments on his performance from our guests and would highly recommend him to any of our friends getting married in the bay area in the future.
