He was both professional and an amazing musician. I would recommend him for your next event.
Chris did a wonderful job playing guitar at our cliffside Red River Gorge wedding. He played exactly what we wanted and everyone else loved the entertainment! He was prompt and on time and nice to work with. I would highly suggest for anyone looking for this same type of service!
Chris did an excellent job at our small, intimate wedding! He was a beautiful addition to our day and I will cherish the beautiful music forever!
Chris did an amazing job at my husband's 40th birthday! Our guests and most importantly, the birthday honoree loved him! He sounds wonderful and has a great personality! Chris was easy to work with during the planning process and we put together a nice list of songs. To top it off he was professional and punctual !
We hired Chris for a split Catholic wedding ceremony in May just a couple of months before the wedding. He was very quick to respond and made sure he was very prepared for our ceremony. More importantly, he is a phenomenal musician and singer and we received many compliments from our guests. He was the perfect choice for us!
Response from Chris Weiss:
Thanks guys! It was a blast!

What to Expect
Live shows will fit the event and venue. They can range from full on engaging performances of original or popular music to background music setting a mood or atmosphere. Whether or not the music is the focal point I will work with the event organizers to create a flavor for the night. Typically my performances are energetic and engaging.
Additional Booking Notes
