Response from Alan Lee Wilson:
Thank you Becky for your great review. It was,and honor play for your mother's memorial service and meeting you and your family. Alan
Alan was great, he arrived on time, set up easily even with a tight space and guests already arriving, and played beautifully. I'd hire him again!
Alan was punctual, polite, very helpful, had everything ready, chose the right music. A great musician and performer.
Alan was there to practice at the rehearsal and was early setting up for the wedding - he played songs for the guests while being seated. He never skipped a beat, he was well tuned and transitioned very well. I would hire Alan for any occasion just knowing his wide range of songs. Thanks Alan
Alan did a great job and met our expectations. We planned a classy dinner reception and his music really made the evening complete. He is very talented. Our guests really enjoyed him too! We have also listened to him play at a restaurant ...excellent! He is now my daughter's guitar teacher and doing a great job teaching.
Price Range: $200-$1000
