    Quality Work with Ease

    I found his prices reasonable and he was easy to work with. Just a minimum of fuss, excellent demeanor and presentation. Our guests also enjoyed his music. In my experience his best attribute was an ability to adapt to our circumstances.

    Francesco was amazing! Of course our wedding fell on the first snowfall (mini storm) of the season. And he called to night before to confirm everything was still on as planned and braved the snow to make our ceremony amazing! I had a surprise selection for the bridal party to walk down the aisle to the Game of Thrones theme song which was a pleasant surprise to the party and guest included. He was always prompt to respond when I had questions and can not give enough thanks making our day so special!

    We found Francesco after posting on the Hartt School's gig board. He was very easy to work with, had great suggestions, and delivered just as we discussed on the big day. Would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to add special touch to their wedding ceremony.

    HAving Francesco being part of our wedding day was a great edition. I love the sound of the classic guitar and when I stumbled upon Francesco I liked what I heard. He was responsive and professional. Showed up early on our wedding day and I would reccomned him to anyone that is interested in looking for a musician on their special day.

    Although we did not get to hear most of the music played as my wife and I did not rejoin cocktail hour, we received many compliments of Francesco and his music throughout the night. He was there early and took the time to make sure everything was all set prior to his allotted time. Very accommodating through emails through the time of booking and up to the event and helped us pick the right music for us by suggesting different genres and songs. Highly recommend!!!

    Francesco was great to work with! He is very responsive and detail orientated. Francesco was also very accommodating to our custom requests. He learned and played our bridal processional song (Jason Mraz - I won't give up) perfectly as well as our recessional song (Ho Hey – The Lumineers)! Francesco also played at our cocktail reception and our guests complimented on the range of songs he played.

    Francesco was a wonderful addition to my brother's wedding ceremony, making the occasion even nore special and memorable. I received many compliments on his behalf from so many of the guests. He played before, after, and during the ceremony and the volume was just right: loud enough for people to enjoy his music, but not so loud that people couldn't talk and catch up with each other! At the bride's request, he made an arrangement of a song and it was beautiful. I will not hesitate to call him again I am ever in need of a professional, versatile, and talented musician

    Francesco was incredible! He was very flexible in working with me to completely customize the music at my wedding ceremony - he even bought a whole new music book at no extra cost to me. And on my wedding day I could not have been happier with his beautiful playing that set a perfect tone for our ceremony! I'd recommend him to everyone!

    My husband and I were looking for an alternative to recorded music during our summer wedding ceremony. Francesco played beautifully and was excellent to work with. He listened to our requests and had great suggestions as well. He is an excellent musician and set the stage for a lovely outdoor ceremony. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for a professional and accomplished wedding musician!

    Francesco is an accomplished musician. He played classical guitar music at our wedding. We were thrilled with his performance. Francesco has quite a selection of music. He was very open to our music selections. He was also accommodating with our guests requests. He knows a wide range of music genre.

    Finding Francesco really put the finishing touch on our wedding ceremony. We got married at the amphitheater in Harkness Park, and his classical guitar repertoire really set the stage to welcome our guests and accompany our ceremony. I struggled to find the right instrument and musician to suit the relaxed outdoor wedding we wanted, and he was truly the perfect fit

    Francesco showed up early and stayed on longer than his 'exact hour'. he was polite, courteous and knowledgeable about the wedding process and worked well with both the wedding party and organizer.
    We would have put him closer to the front for the ceremony as his acoustic guitar is very soft - when all was quiet it was quite beautiful. A little sound check before the ceremony might be helpful in deciding where to place him.
    I would highly recommend him for a wedding. His playiing skill is fantastic.

    Francesco was very responsive, friendly, professional, and -- best of all -- he gave us expert recommendations for our ceremony music, so we didn't have to worry about creating a whole playlist. Overall working with him was a great experience!

    Francesco Barone played classical guitar for our cocktail hour, and although I wasn't at the cocktail hour (we were taking pictures), I heard he did a wonderful job. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone looking for lovely background music for their guests to enjoy while mingling!
