Perfect Wedding Instrumental Music
Ken, on guitar, and April, on violin, played for my son's church wedding and we couldn't have been happier! The music was perfect for the church setting but would be equally appropriate for a more secular environment. Ken had a large repertoire of options including hymns, contemporary music and classics and the process was seamless from initial contact to the final Recessional. We highly recommend Ken and his team of professional musicians for this most important day.Sent on 08/21/2019

Professional and talented
Ken Rothacker is a very talented guitarist. We hired him to play for our ceremony and our cocktail hour. He was professional, friendly and prompt with all communication. Ken learned two new songs for our ceremony and they sounded great! Ken has a wide repertoire of music, so there was something for everyone to enjoy during the cocktail hour. We highly recommend Ken - he's professional, talented, and easy to work with. We are so appreciative that Ken could join us and help make our wedding day so special!Sent on 09/09/2019

Ken Rothacker-Premiere Wedding Guitarist!
Ken was an excellent addition to our outdoor ceremony. He had an extensive repertoire of music to choose from and he was very accommodating; even when it came to switching locations after our venue went out of business 3 weeks before our wedding. I would highly recommend choosing Ken for your wedding ceremony, he is an awesome guitar player!Sent on 06/25/2019
Live music is the best. Ken will provide you with great music that your guests will be talking about long after your wedding day.
Ken is a wonderful musician with a broad base of music styles. We recently performed a wedding together, I found him cordial, helpful, and giving. His renditions of Beatles songs as skillful and memorable.
