About

Johnny is a highly trained singer, ukulele player, an experienced jazz and classical pianist, and a WeddingWire Couples' Choice Award Winner.

Thanks for checking out my profile! Since 2010 I have provided music for more than 300 wedding ceremonies, making me one of the most frequently booked wedding performers in the U.S. I combine the cheerful and relaxing sounds of the ukulele with smooth, jazz vocals - I can take a song from any era or style and create an unforgettable performance for your wedding ceremony. I am also available for receptions, cocktail hours, engagement parties, luau's, baby showers, anniversary and birthday parties. My samples should give you an idea of my style - I'm comfortable playing classical piano, jazz standards, traditional Hawaiian songs, pop or classic rock tunes, and just about anything else you can think of.

FREE SONG SAMPLE: Send me the name of your must-have song for your event and I will record a sample and email it to you free of charge. I will work hard to make the music for your special event memorable, unique and beautiful.

I'm proud to have over 80 five-star reviews on WeddingWire. Here are a few of my clients I'd like to highlight:

"Johnny brought amazing talent and good vibes to our wedding! Leading up to the big day, he was very communicative and when we asked for a specific request, he quickly sent a sample back and absolutely nailed it. We had very particular goals of making sure our whole day was calm, cool, and authentically us. And Johnny brought his A-game and made sure the music was on point to the vibe we set out for. THANK YOU!" -Ellen O.

"The event was a huge success. Thanks in no small part to the efforts of Johnny Herbert. Johnny entertained family and friends on our special anniversary party. This included an original song which brought tears of joy to everyone who attended. Johnny, thank you for a wonderful evening." -Robert C.

"There are no words to express how happy and grateful we are that Johnny was part of our wedding day From the beginning, Johnny was unbelievably accommodating and friendly, and we knew off the bat we could trust him. We weren't necessarily looking for a ukulele player, but Johnny's rendition of Book of Love had us hooked and we knew he was the right fit. From our first call, he made us extremely comfortable and went above and beyond - he learned songs that were special to us, set us up with a violinist for the prelude and ceremony, and sent us an entire list so we could put them on our DJ's "do not play" list for the reception. On the wedding day, he arrived early and was professional and friendly to all. Having live music made a huge impact on the ceremony and he played the songs that were special to us perfectly." -Lisa C.

Amazing musician!

Johnny was so great for our ceremony music! I didn’t want to use a DJ for our ceremony so I was searching for a musician. I had a specific song in mind to walk down the aisle to, and Johnny took the request and it was perfect. Guests loved the ukulele and piano, also commenting on his beautiful singing.

The best ever!

John did an amazing job as the pianist for our wedding ceremony. He was able to customize two of our favorite songs and it all came out so beautifully! John is the perfect musical addition to our day and we would highly recommend working with him!

Beautiful music and very responsive!

Johnny provided the music for our wedding ceremony at St. Thomas More in Morristown, NJ. It was a pleasure working with him as we planned out our big day, and he had a lot of valuable advice as we sorted out our song selections. On the day of the wedding, the music was beautiful! Johnny made every part of the process easy with his friendly demeanor and knowledge of his craft. We’re very grateful for his help in making our wedding such a special day!

I was really fortunate to work with Johnny Herbert. He was so sweet, warm and played so beautifully at a recent proposal that we were both hired for. I definitely have and will recommend him! Elana Goodridge Photography
