    Perfect Vibe

    We booked Neil Dixon Smith to perform at our small wedding dinner reception. We had a total of 40 people attend the dinner and wanted an intimate feel and some live background music. I heard Neil perform at another event and knew he was perfect for the occasion. He set the tone for the evening and was a wonderful musical backdrop for the evening. I would love to book him for a future event, should I have the opportunity.

    Perfect acoustic guitar and awesome percussion duo!

    We couldn't be happier with our choice to use Neil Dixon Smith for ceremony music and him + Janet (his percussionist) for our cocktail hour. Neil came to our house and played for us in the months leading up to our wedding so that we could actually hear the songs he might play. He recommended songs for all aspects of our ceremony and gave us multiple options - including a commitment to learn new music if we wanted - which was so helpful! After meeting with Neil and hearing his sound, we even planned a special spot in our ceremony where Neil just played acoustic guitar for 30 seconds. It was beautiful and gave us a chance to soak in entire moment - including looking out into our audience. We also hired Janet to do percussion with Neil during our cocktail hour and received multiple complements on the 'fun, energetic sound.' Overall, I would highly recommend Neil!
