John was great!!
My fiancé (now husband) and I postponed our larger wedding due to the current pandemic and we instead held a small intimate ceremony in MD. We hired John to perform music prior to the ceremony (about 20 minutes), the wedding processional, and recessional. He was wonderful! He was extremely responsive and helpful. When I met him day-of, he was super friendly and such a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend John!Sent on 04/01/2021

Your Go-To Guy for a Great Party!
We were replanning our wedding and looking for a musician to play classical / spanish guitar tunes during the ceremony and reception. I found John on wedding wire and really liked the music he had on YouTube and his website. Upon reaching out, John was quick to respond and accommodating of any request we had.
John ended up playing from 6pm - 9pm, and it could not have been a better set! The ceremony music was beautiful & original; beautiful classical guitar classics and new hits combined. John's repertoire is extensive and he helped us keep the party going during the cocktail hour, dinner, and first dances with ease - all while entertaining some of our younger guests who wanted to be "in his act" :).
I cannot recommend John enough to anyone who is looking for a musician that will take your event to the next level with grace, elegance, and professionalism.Sent on 06/28/2021

Perfect Addition to Our Ceremony & Cocktail Hour!
We are SO glad that we hired John to play guitar during our ceremony and cocktail hour. He is a brilliant musician and a kind person. John went above and beyond to learn a song that I wanted to have played while I walked down the aisle. His style is classic, elegant, yet light and fun. A perfect fit for the vibe of our big day! I thought I wouldn't cry on my wedding day, but when I heard John playing before I walked down the aisle...it felt real and the tears started rolling. So beautiful! Guests loved his 60s/70s classic rock acoustic mix played during cocktail hour...it provided such a fun and relaxed atmosphere. He was easy to work with throughout the whole planning process and showed up right on time. 11/10 would recommend him for your big day. Thank you so much, John!Sent on 06/15/2021
