Stellar performer, and a great teammate for all wedding couples!

R.D King was an amazing addition to our wedding, not just as a stellar guitar player and performer, but also as a creative voice for planning our ceremony. Our venue had dropped out of providing us a day-of coordinator for our rehearsal, and R.D. King was able to provide quick guidance and support in an otherwise extremely stressful moment!

This act of generosity and work ethic would alone merit a 5 star rating, but he also perfectly arranged the music my wife and I wanted for our ceremony. He provided preliminary meetings to discuss arrangements and styles, then sent over a brief sample, months before our wedding date, just to be sure he had captured the right sound and feel for our wedding. And it was perfect! Could not recommend him enough! If you are unsure what kind of music accompaniment you would like for your wedding, stick with R.D. King, as you will not be disappointed!

Amazing guitarist, beautiful music!`

RD was AMAZING! He did the music for our ceremony and made a custom arrangement of a song we were worried might not translate well to guitar, but he made an absolutely STUNNING arrangement that we still listen to very often. He was responsive, fun to work with, and professional--easily adapting to the weather and working with our venue's A/V setup guy. Phenomenal experience, amazing amazing guitarist, great guy. 10/10 would recommend!
