Exactly the Guitarist We Were Looking For!
I discovered Pete through TheKnot.com as one of best ceremony musicians, and he did NOT disappoint! To be honest, I was pretty set on getting him, regardless of price. I watched a few of his YouTube videos watching him play "fingerstyle" renditions of my bride's favorite songs and I was hooked. We had him play Glen Hansard, Clapton, Bruno Mars, Coldplay, and even a little country, and it all meshed together so well. I could not have been more pleased with the sound and it gave the perfect background music to our guests arriving, it was simple and elegant, and perfectly highlighted the atmosphere we wanted to create. Thankfully, Pete does a great job at pricing himself out competitively. While I had to have him for the ceremony, it turned out that his pricing was just barely over what I would have paid my DJ to plug an iPod into a speaker to use for ceremony music. The difference between an iPod experience and what Pete delivered on our big day would have been vastly different, and I am so glad we had Pete Smyser for our wedding. Thank You, Pete! --Johnny & RachelSent on 10/29/2018

We were so glad we hired Pete to bring some live music to our wedding! He was incredibly easy to work with and offered a broad variety of music to choose from. He was quick, responsive and the utmost professional. Day of he sounded just as great as he does online. One of our guests even commented that they thought we had recorded music, it sounded so good! Was a special touch to add to our special day and we highly recommend for any event.Sent on 12/19/2018

Pete's an amazing guitarist! If you weren't looking, you'd swear there were two players in the room. Pete can also add additional musicians to customize your event. Pick your genre, he can pretty much do anything!
