Great personality and song selections!

My mom found John through a friend that works with him. He brought his assortment of very cool guitars and entertained at my Chinese Wedding feast. My husband and father enjoyed a lot of the classics that he played which is a tall order because they鈥檙e both very picky about music. We asked for some classic Greek music since they are John鈥檚 specialty and were extremely happy with his song selection which we left up to him.

Provided the perfect vibe for our wedding

When my soloist told me I had an awesome guitarist I knew everything would be perfect! The soloist was able to practice with John over the phone since they were in different states and they ran through the song before the actual ceremony. I had a beach wedding and the guitar was perfect for this venue. He played Bossa Nova which goes well with the beach. Be decisive about what you want and John will get the job done beautifully!

WONDERFUL! True professional, and went above & beyond to make us happy

We had gone back & forth about hiring a live musician for our ceremony- and whether it made sense for our budget. Ultimately, we knew we wanted our ceremony to feel intimate and John helped provide just that! I reached out to John and he responded promptly. No games about pricing, just straight-forward. We booked John for our ceremony and cocktail hour. The guests loved it! It was perfect for our intimate rooftop ceremony & cocktail hour. He has an extensive list of songs to choose from, but we asked if he could take a request anyways. We asked him to play one of my favorite songs, "I Choose You," and he agreed to learn it! He kept me posted and would even send me videos of his progress etc. The best part about hiring John was that I didn't have to worry about a thing! I totally trusted him. He brought his equipment, was on time, did what was asked, no stress or worries. He is a professional. There is also something very warm & kind about him that I loved. So happy we hired John!
