We couldn't have been happier with Barb's performance at our outdoor pool/beach party 🎉! She's a fantastic guitarist and has a great repertoire of music. Everyone at the party was impressed. Will definitely have her back next year!
Barb was a fantastic musician and consummate professional in every step from during the booking process all the way to the end of the event. She was very responsive to all questions and requests and definitely put my mind at ease (especially since I had never booked anything through the GigSalad website. I hired Barb to play guitar for an Evening Catamaran Cruise, she showed up early with all necessary equipment to play without power on board the boat. Many guests on board gave compliments to me regarding her vast array of music and talent and I wholeheartedly agree. I highly recommend her for your next event, you won't regret it!!!!
We hired Barb to play for our son's outdoor rehearsal dinner at the Hilton in Naples this past weekend. She expertly and professionally performed to help set the mood for the event. A lot of our guests mentioned how much they appreciated her playing. l would recommend her without reservation for any type of party.
Response from Barb Cheron - Guitarist:
Thank you for the nice review, Steve. It was my pleasure performing for your special event. I enjoyed meeting you.
Very good music, we enjoy it !
Response from Barb Cheron - Guitarist:
Thank you for the review, Marie! It was my pleasure to perform for your lovely party.
We hired Barb for an intimate dinner party and she made the event special. We enjoyed smooth jazz during dinner and then Barb switched to dance music that really made the party. Five stars are not enough to recognize this talented performer!
They were very good and just perfect for the wedding. Always had backup music for when they needed breaks so that there was no quiet downtime.
No complaint's about the music. I loved all the JAZZ.
It would be 5 out of 5 but I was not aware that a band manager and singer's boyfriend would also be joining them on the evening. They were non intrusive and very nice, but it would have been good to know ahead of time... I mean, of course I would have said yes they could tag along, just a head's up next time please...
Thanks Barb! It was the perfect evening.
Response from Barb Cheron - Guitarist:
Thank you for your review of our entertainment. We are disappointed that we lost a star due to the presence of support staff. The manager and roadie are part of the reason we are typically a five star act. They ensure that the sound levels are properly monitored and that the equipment is effectively mixed, set up and taken down efficiently. They also assist in managing audience requests and determining if alterations to the playlist are warranted. They are always unobtrusive and discreet. I apologize that I didn't give you a heads up about them and their roles. I'm glad that you enjoyed our performance as we enjoyed being a part of your special day!
Had my moms 70th bday party and they made the party!! I am from Michigan and booked them on line not knowing how it was going to turn out, and let me say the were absolutely wonderful!!! Highly recommend!!!!
Barb is very passionate about her music and versatile as to style of music you may want for various events. She is dedicated to making your event music special. I have attended several of her gigs up in Wisconsin.
Barb and Danielle were fantastic. They made our party into a special event. All our guests were so complimentary. I would hire them again.
Love the guitar, miss the vocalist but still outstanding!

Barb's an amazing guitarist, and the band was great. She clearly brings the other musicians together, and she brought fresh interpretation and meaning to old standards. I have also seen her perform solo, and her technical skill and musicianship is just superb. A thoroughly enjoyable performance.
Barb provided the perfect blend of music for our cocktail party! She seemed to know exactly what kind of songs the audience would appreciate. Everyone who attended gave her rave reviews. I highly recommend her, and I would definitely hire her again!

I've Got A Crush on You
I've Got the World on a String
I've Got You Under My Skin
In a Sentimental Mood
It Don't Mean A Thing
It Had To Be You
It's Only a Paper Moon
It's Too Late
