Had Brian perform and he did fantastic! Personable and professional!
This was a exactly the type if music we wanted and Brian gave a good performance.
Brian made our small event even more special with his playing. He was friendly and seemed at ease with our small group.
Response from Brian Hayes, Classical Guitarist:
Thank you for the nice review. For some reason, I never saw it until now. If you don't mind, I'll put it up on my website as well. Thank you again!
Brian Hayes played for our wedding procession as well as our cocktail hour. He played beautifully! He was on time, professional and very friendly. He was everything we were hoping for and offered the perfect touch on our special day. Thank you Brian!
Brian contributed excellent entertainment for our 50th wedding anniversary. He arrived early to make sure he was set up and ready when the party kicked off. Since we had a small family gathering, Brian made an effort to personally introduce himself to each guest. I was impressed by his cordiallity. He was happy to interact with us answering any questions we had. He made this a great interactive experience for us. Our guests were thrilled by his technical expertise and his selection of music. It was a great night,especially for my wife who is experiencing serious medical issues. Thanks, Brian, for helping to make this a memorable anniversary.
Brian performed for our corporate event and did a fantastic job. He was on time and very professional. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed his music. He gave the perfect balance between hearing his music and people still being able to have conversations without having to raise their voices. We will definitely use Brian again for future events!
Brian contributed greatly to my daughter's wedding. His professionalism, talent, and technique were all on display in less than ideal (outdoor- very hot) circumstances. I look forward to hearing him play again sometime.
