Joshua was absolutely spectacular. My wife and I wanted live musicians to play during our outdoor wedding ceremony, but we weren't sure who to select given the myriad of wedding musicians in the area. We are so happy that we selected Joshua to play at our wedding. We booked him along with a violinist, and both of them performed beautifully! Their skillful performance of Pachelbell's Canon in D brought tears to my eyes as I saw my bride for the first time as she walked up the aisle.Sent on 06/12/2017
He was also so helpful along the way with selecting music for the day. He gave us recommendations, and we couldn't be happier with what he gave us. He was very patient as we took our time to select our musical pieces. His response time was also superb. He would always respond to our emails within a day. The ceremony music was the least stressful part of all of the wedding planning because of the great work that Joshua did! We highly recommend him!

Josh was exceedingly professional - he was super responsive, made things incredibly easy by having plenty of song ideas, and quickly set up a contract and made payment via paypal very simple. I didn't have an event coordinator and so ended up dealing with a plethora of details in the moments leading up to the ceremony (including changing ceremony location due to rain) but it was clear that Josh had done this so many times that he needed minimal direction. He and the violinist (which he recommended!) pulled off a phenomenal performance. I highly recommend him!Sent on 06/18/2018
