The best in professionalism and musicianship!

Our experience with John was wonderful from the start of our conversations about venue, atmosphere and music til the day of our event. He dealt with us professionally, communicated the details of our contract clearly and responded to e-mails quickly.
Most importantly, he understood what we wanted musically for an outdoor garden wedding. John played an amplified acoustic guitar that set a romantic and winsome mood as our guests arrived, a formal and soft mood for the processional and an elegant mood as the couple recessed. He is an exceptional musician, too. All in all, we highly recommend him for your event.

True musician - talented, versatile - all the right stuff!

My daughter was married 5/18 and John played at the service. She had specific thoughts of music to play (Ed Sheeran) and John made it sound magical with acoustic guitar. John is incredibly versatile and very talented, making it all seem effortless (though I know the work that goes into it). He is my go to for special events and has been for quite some time. So very glad to have the opportunity to know him and call him friend.

Mother of the Groom

John absolutely exceeded all of our expectations!!! We are from Nashville and received John鈥檚 name from our rehearsal dinner venue. From the moment I first made contact he was amazing. At each inquiry he was responsive and went above and beyond to help create the type of music and environment we were looking for. We started out hiring him for the rehearsal dinner and ended up using him for the entire wedding weekend! We had a variety of different music requests and he was able to help with all types! Additionally, we had audio visual needs that he took care Of flawlessly! I cannot say enough positive things about John! If you are looking for someone with multi-talents, excellent communication and a pleasure to work with , John is the one!! I rarely write reviews, but this guy deserves more than 5 stars!

John was very professional and a pleasure to work with. He was very prompt in his communications and flexible with the bride and groom as they selected and changed their ceremony music. He even sent a recording for us to use during the rehearsal. I would highly recommend John!
