I was in need of a guitarist to offer instrumental music for an event called Dining in the Dark where the guests eat blindfolded and we take them on a journey of the senses. I required background music to set the mood for each course and reflect the type of food being served and the words that I was reading from the script. I hail from the Eastern part of Pennsylvania and this event was in the Western part so I luckily found Aaron on GigSalad. He provided the necessary styles and feels of music I asked for and then some. His choices were perfect. He was not only adaptable to my needs but he also was on punctual and had the right equipment needed for the event. I recommend Aaron Lefebrvre highly!
Response from Aaron Lefebvre:
Wow, thanks, Larry! That's incredibly generous of you!
We asked Aaron if he would play guitar for the prelude and procession/recession at our wedding. Aaron had never been asked to play for a wedding before, but graciously accepted our request. Aaron met with us prior to the wedding to go over music selection and expectations. We have always been impressed with Aaron's natural playing ability, and we decided to use original pieces of music written by Aaron, himself. (He also has some fun covers, like the Talking Heads.) Aaron was cooperative and helpful in the decision-making process. He arrived well before the ceremony began to meet with the DJ for sound checks. Aaron played flawlessly during the ceremony! He made such an impression on our guests that we may have played a part in kicking off Aaron's wedding performing entrepreneurship!
We have asked Aaron to play numerous openings in our space which is an art gallery with a full espresso bar. He is a pleasure to listen to, and he is a very nice guy. Super punctual, considerate, and a pleasure to have in our space, both as a performer and as an all around human being. Great guy! Insanely talented musician!
