Very easy to work with, very professional
Jarrett was very easy to work with. We actually just wrote back and forth over email, which made the planning process much easier (one less phone call to schedule/make!). He learned a new song for my processional. His music was great background music, but also did not disturb the guests as they continued their conversation.Sent on 07/27/2019

Classical/Spanish/Contemporary from arrival through dinner
We wanted a specific, solo guitarist for our wedding. One with a strong enough repertoire of spanish/flamenco, along with some acoustic versions of contemporary songs. Jarrett was perfect. We went to see him perform at one of his gigs before hiring him, and knew he would be great.Sent on 07/20/2019
We wanted light and airy as people arrived, classical suggestions for the ceremony, spanish guitar for the cocktail hour, and acoustic contemporary for the first half of dinner. He was open to suggestions, provided some of his own, and in the end, we were quite pleased.
He hit the contemporary songs that we knew would go over well with our parents (Beatles) and nice renditions of Dave Matthews, John Legend, among others. It was a great way to have him continue through dinner, up until the toasts, which allowed us to transition from guitarist to DJ Dave Grimm of Signature Talent.
Jarrett coincidentally had previously worked with our officiant and DJ so we knew all would flow well.

Jarrett was great to work with! Very responsive and accommodating. We were able to meet before the wedding to go over the song list and how the ceremony would take place. He plays beautifully and everyone enjoyed listening to his music before the ceremony took place. He came highly recommended, and I definitely highly recommend him.Sent on 01/30/2019
