    Perfect soundtrack to the best day!

    We contacted a number of musicians last minute & eventho Ben was the most highly ranked and w/ the most impressive resume, he actually responded the quickest and was available! He’s slightly more expensive than some other musicians but if you hire a single musician it’s really easy for them to sound cheesy or cookie-cutter (this is coming from a classically-trained musician who has played many weddings). So I opted to go for Ben since we were putting all our music eggs in one basket & I couldn’t be happier I chose him. He was super communicative prior to the wedding & actually learned a couple pieces I specifically requested. He truly made the perfect soundtrack to the most memorable day of our lives.

    Ideal wedding sounds

    I'm so glad Ben was able to play both our ceremony and cocktail hour. He made it easy to plan before the big day, and on the day of truly provided the perfect sounds for our guests and us. The ceremony was made even more beautiful by his talents. His ability to play multiple styles was also a huge asset as we wanted a tango and flamenco heavy cocktail hour. I wouldn't hesitate to call Ben for a social or business event in the future.

    Ben did an absolutely amazing job playing the guitar for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. He was always available during the planning process and made everything smooth and easy. Friends of mine complimented the songs he played and we were all very impressed by his talent. Thanks Ben!!

    From the first time I spoke with Ben until after the event it was nothing but a pleasure to work with him. We had a small wedding reception for our daughter and son-in-law and wanted guitar music. When I read Ben's profile I knew he was the one we wanted. He is extremely professional but also very personable and so easy to work with. He is a master of the guitar and his creativity is expressed through the variety of music he plays. He is talent extraordinaire!!! Our guests RAVED about his performance and we will always have Ben play at any future events we have. Thank you Ben, you are awesome.

    Ben is a talented musician and true professional. He was very flexible and one of our most responsive vendors which made my life a lot easier (while planning long distance). We received tons of compliments from our guests on the music for our beach ceremony and hotel cocktail hour. He even managed to snap a few pictures just after our ceremony and texted them to me so I was able to see them before the reception. I would absolutely recommend Ben Pila!

    Unfortunately I didn't get to meet Ben during the wedding, I really wanted to meet him in person, but I totally got to hear him, and it was amazing!!!! Ben was one of the first vendors that i hired, I contacted someone before him and it was the most awful experience, then i found Ben, and i can't even explain here how amazing he was. So nice, so quick to reply and so good at what he does!
    I told Ben that i wanted to surprise my husband to be with a specific song when walking down the isle, and he recorded my song for me just so i could see how i liked it.
    And of course that i loved it. When it was time to decide in all the other songs for the ceremony and cocktail hour he was so helpful and gave me a lot of ideas and examples! I loved working with him, very pleasant and smooth simple process.

    Ben was better than we hoped for, he is excellent at what he does. He played our 3 hour reception and our ceremony, doing a fantastic job at each. He had a great selection of music that our friends loved, we had nothing but great feedback about the music. I was a bit nervous about not having a dance floor but am so happy we had Ben play. It created the perfect atmosphere for our reception and it wouldn't have been the same without him.

    If you want a truly classy and elegant ceremony, he will set the tone! Music is outstanding and his choices are perfect! Ben was so easy to work with and helped so much with music selection. My guests commented on how good he was and how they loved his choices for the reception music.

    Ben was great! Would highly recommend him. Super nice guy, super talented, and very professional. Also very accommodating and laid back. We requested a few specific songs to be played during the ceremony and he had no problem accommodating us and arranging them...and arranged them beautifully! And everything else he played was perfect. Thanks Ben!

    Ben was amazing! Before I hired him, he emailed me some of his tracks and as soon as I heard them, I knew I wanted him to play for our wedding. I told him what types of music we like and even requested a specific song for him to play so when I walked down the aisle to "our" song. He was amazing and very professional throughout the whole process. I will definitely think of him when we have another event!

    Ben was an exceptional choice for our daughter's wedding. He was very easy to communicate with pre wedding. His music set the whole atmosphere. He played as guests gathered, during the ceremony and the cocktail hour. It was an outdoor wedding and the set up extremely stressful because of bad weather. Ben's music helped calm everyone and set the mood for a beautiful afternoon in spite of the weather. He was very flexible with his playing location which we had to improvise because of the weather. Many guests commented on how much they enjoyed his playing. He was also a delightful guest at the reception after he had finished playing.

    Ben was, no question, one of the best decisions my husband and I made in our wedding planning. He was the easiest vendor to work with...always responsive, accommodating, and professional. On the morning of my wedding, I was worried about so many things. Would it rain? Would my makeup and hair throw off the schedule? Would the florist remember the last-minute change to our reception centerpieces? The one thing I didn't worry about for a second: the ceremony music. Just as I knew he would, Ben arrived on time, masterfully performed the pieces we had selected, and set the perfect mood for the occasion. I wholeheartedly recommend Ben Pila.
