Christian played stunning music at my mother's memorial service. Throughout the hiring process, Christian was prompt in all his responses and professional. He showed up on time and created a thoughtful playlist for our event. I hope to hire him again very soon!
Christian was amazing...he arrived on time and played beautiful guitar music for over 3 hours. We hosted an outside dinner party for string musicians for a local music festival and the founder of the festival was very impressed with his playing.
Christian was also quick to reply to any communication or questions I had. I will definitely keep Christian in mind for future events.
Christian was on time and delivered a wonderful set of songs. We were very pleased.
What an experience. Christian played beautifully for us for an hour for my sisters birthday. Loved his choice in playlist and was fully engaged. Can’t wait for the next occasion to book Christian again
Cristian was an absolute professional and his music was beautiful. We enjoyed having Cristian during our dinner and will absolutely book him again. You will not be disappointed.
