    You need to hire Gene!

    We could not be happier with Gene, from the moment we started contact. We hired him for our ceremony music and cocktail hour He responded quickly and gave us an extremely fair estimate. I left out details about the event that were pertinent to his schedule for the day, and he adjusted everything without a complaint and made it work. He had a wide variety of music to choose from, and make recommendations when I asked. My guests complimented him on how romantic sounding the solo guitarist was, and how he was able to take songs and make them his own. Leading up to the event, he made us feel like he was as excited for our wedding as we were. I would highly recommend Gene for your big day!

    Fantastic !

    Gene was an absolute pleasure to work with. From our initial conversation, to our phone call where he actually played samples for me (and had me already in tears), to quickly and professionally answering every question I emailed him in between, he was kind, patient, and just an overall great person to work with. The music at my ceremony was beautiful and timed perfectly with the officient.

    Absolutely Wonderful!

    My husband and I had Gene and Jordan play the guitar and cello for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour in June. They were absolutely wonderful! Gene was so easy to work with and even rehearsed a special song I requested for my bridal procession. So many of our guests have commented on how beautiful the music was during the ceremony and cocktail hour. Gene and Jordan were exactly what we wanted and we are so happy they were a part of our wedding day!

    Thank you for choosing us for your wedding music! The best kind of review is one that is not solicited. Jordan and I - Duo Pan Música wish you and your husband all the best that marriage has to offer.

    Perfect Wedding Ceremony Musician

    My husband and I are SO GLAD we chose Gene to play the music for our ceremony!! He collaborated with a cellist to play beautiful music for our guests as they waited and during the ceremony as well. He has a huge list of songs to choose from and is extremely helpful and easy going- he really makes the process easy and fun! We couldn't be happier!

    A Class Act

    We hired Gene to play at our son's rehearsal dinner. He was a consummate professional on all counts. He quickly and expertly answered all questions and immediately recognized the "vibe" we were trying to achieve. His beautiful music and extensive repertory added intimacy and elegance to the gathering and was enjoyed by all. He even was a life-saver. When it came time for the rehearsal dinner speeches, we discovered that our venue had no microphone or amplification system. Gene to the rescue. He gave us one of his mics, attached it to his amp and .... situation solved! Thanks Gene. You truly helped to make this already memorable night, more perfect.

    My husband and I are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Gene. From the first contact we felt we had partnered with someone who really wanted to make our day special. He has an EXTENSIVE list of perfect songs to choose from. He even made the experience of choosing music easy by giving us some suggestions. He went above and beyond by learning a song for us that was special to the groom's mom. Having live music at our ceremony added so much sophistication and sincerity to our day-and for not a huge expense. Gene's prices were more than fair for the service he provides. We received wonderful feedback from family and friends on how wonderful our ceremony and cocktail house music was. Gene arrived early, he was professional, and a true gentleman. I would recommend him a thousand times!

    5 stars all around! If you are considering guitar music for your wedding you need to look no further than Gene Pino. Gene is such a lovely man. From the moment we contacted him and through all our planning he was quick to respond and answer questions promptly. He initiated follow up with us and clarified things prior to our day. He is very professional and has such a positive engaging way about him. He made us feel like we’re the only couple who’s wedding he had ever done. He expressed his excitement to be a part of our day, and I do truly believe he gets excited to be a part of anyone’s day! Gene has an extensive list of songs he knows and can learn anything if you ask. We chose a song that he learned for us for our ceremony processional (which turned out better than we ever imagined!) and chose a song from his song list for our recessional. We let him pick from his selections for our cocktail hour. He plays oh so beautifully. Check out his website to hear some selections! We had so many comments on how talented he is and what a nice touch the guitar music was to our ceremony and cocktail hour. He is absolutely amazing. Music to our ears! We hope to be able to work with him again. (Photos by Rachel Black : Rowanberry + Lavender)

    Gene Pino did an incredible job from start to finish. Nothing but great things to say about their performance. Even better they require very little direction on the day of and leading up to the wedding. True professionals and easy to work with!

    Mr. Gene Pino and his colleague were a pleasure to work with on my wedding day! I booked Mr. Pino for our cocktail hour, and the music was very nice! It gave a very classy touch to our cocktail hour. He played a few contemporary songs including Jason Mraz I'm Yours which I really enjoyed!!! Don't think twice, he is a talented musician who is reasonably priced and a true professional! Thank you Mr. Pino!!!!

    I used Gene as an entertainer over 2 full days during the largest B2B tradeshow event held at the Javits Convention Center in New York City. He created a wonderful ambiance on the show floor, and many attendees stopped and sat nearly to enjoy his talents throughout the day. He was easy to work with, adaptable to different situations, and his musical range is impressive. I would happily work with him again.

    The thing about Gene is that he took a stressful situation and turned it into a relaxing experience. My wife and I had been looking for a musician for months and it had already become a point of contention. I was beginning to give up hope. Then my wife found Gene's website and played his music for me. When we spoke to him on the phone, he immediately assuaged our tension by telling us that he knew how to play every song we wanted him too and that there was one that my wife loved that he had no problem learning. Furthermore, his prices were fair and affordable. He was courteous, knowledgable and professional throughout the booking process and waited patiently for our confirmation of the date and whether we wanted him. When the big day arrived, he was there early, practicing and warming up. The music was the most flawless part of the ceremony and left nothing to be desired. Afterwards he slipped away, but not without giving me a big smile and humbly making his farewell. Truly, I love the memory of the role he played in my wedding and could not have asked for a better musician. I highly recommend him.

    Gene was a fantastic addition to our day. He went out of his way to learn two different songs for us, which made the ceremony so special. He also played during our extended cocktail hour which added the perfect backdrop. He was very professional, had great energy, and is a very talented musician. I absolutely recommend him and plan to call in the future for any family parties.

    Gene Pino was a wonderful addition to our wedding. Our wedding was held outside on August 29, 2015 at the Inn at Longshore and Gene and an accompanying cellist performed our beautiful ceremony and cocktail hour music. Gene was incredibly easy to work with, provided us with helpful suggestions and was a genuinely nice guy during our wedding planning. We would recommend him a million times over.
