Neil was great to work with from the very beginning. He invited us to his place so we can listen to him before booking him, which was really nice in deciding whether or not we want to book him (we immediately said yes after listening to him!). Another unique experience we had with Neil was preparing for our first dance songs. After he suggested to sing for us, he immediately sent us a short clip of example. It was a great suggestion, not only he is a good singer but we also got to listen to the lyrics (which meant a lot for us). He ended up performing for all first dance, father daughter and mother son dances, and it was all awesome! We can't recommend him enough to anyone considering about having a live performer. We are 100% happy that we chose Neil.Sent on 05/23/2018

Talented and passionate musician!
We saw Neil perform at the Great Wedding Recyclery and got his contact info. After we reached out to him via email, he offered to meet with us and play for us. We had a few musical genres in mind and on the spot, Neil was able to play them for us. We were sold! We hired Neil to perform during our ceremony and cocktail hour. Neil is a true professional and so flexible. He was able to fulfill our requests for specific songs to be played during the processional and then had free reign to "do his thing" during cocktail hour. We got so many compliments from our guests. Having live music, even if just for the ceremony/cocktail hour, really elevated the feel of our wedding. With his reasonable rates, you really can't go wrong hiring Neil. Highly recommended!Sent on 08/26/2019
