    Great Guitarist

    We had Ken play at the ceremony and cocktail hour. He can play the traditional wedding music or contemporary. Having Ken play at the cocktail hour added such a nice touch. It made the event just more special. He is easy to work with, and prompt with all communication. I highly recommend him for any occasion!

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.
