Frank · Married on 10/05/2019
Fantastic Wedding Musician
Steve was truly wonderful to work with. From our first phone call he was very friendly and was extremely receptive to our requests for our processional music. He also was able to lend his recommendations for the songs that worked best with his overall sound and philosophy. And when we didn't have any special requests, he was great at filling the space especially as a solo musician. Just an absolute pleasure having him as our musician. Highly highly recommend. Thank you Steve!Sent on 11/27/2019
Steve French Jazz & Classical Guitar's reply:Thank you Frank. Waterfall, Book of Love, and Harvest Moon are now staples in my cocktail hour sets. You opened my eyes to great pieces. I really enjoyed working on the music with you. Best wishes to both of you.

Steve is a talented guitarist that plays with soul, invoking emotion through his sets.Sent on 06/07/2019
He does not overpower the event in any way yet, without him, you would sense a “hole” in the experience.
He is also quite versatile and has played everything from small/intimate cooperate gifs to sophisticated birthday parties.
