Francesco performed for our small family gathering. He came early to set up and played beautifully. He was very professional and friendly. We greatly enjoyed the experience of working with him. Highly recommend him to anyone looking to hire a guitarist. Hope to work with him again in the future!
Our residents enjoyed Francesco playing his guitar in our Bistro Dining area during the dinner hour. We hope to bring him back in 2020 to play for us again.
We had a wedding in New York City and had Francesco play at the luncheon after the ceremony. Without a doubt, a wonderful addition to the wedding itself. Francesco is terrific
Response from Francesco Barone:
Thanks Jackie for your feedback!
Francesco was amazing! Of course our wedding fell on the first snowfall (mini storm) of the season. And he called to night before to confirm everything was still on as planned and braved the snow to make our ceremony amazing! I had a surprise selection for the bridal party to walk down the aisle to the Game of Thrones theme song which was a pleasant surprise to the party and guest included. He was always prompt to respond when I had questions and can not give enough thanks making our day so special!
Francesco was very easy to work with in the planning process, had great suggestions for pieces to play, and delivered just as we discussed on the big day. Would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to add a special touch to their wedding ceremony.
Francesco's playing provided just the right touch for our reception. People passing the event also complimented his playing.
Francesco not only provided lovely accompaniment to our art gallery reception, but was also a delight to work with. He was responsive, prompt, and friendly. Beautiful performance!
Francesco was great! Very responsive, helpful, prompt, and professional! He is so talented and plays beautifully! I would recommend him to anyone.
Francesco was a wonderful addition to my brother's wedding ceremony, making the occasion even nore special and memorable. I received many compliments on his behalf from so many of the guests. He played before, after, and during the ceremony and the volume was just right: loud enough for people to enjoy his music, but not so loud that people couldn't talk and catch up with each other! At the bride's request, he made an arrangement of a song and it was beautiful. I will not hesitate to call him again I am ever in need of a professional, versatile, and talented musician
We reached Francesco at the last minute to play at our outdoor wedding. He quickly confirmed the arrangements and grabbed his guitar. He was at the wedding tuning his instrument even before I arrived. The music was perfect but my favorite part was the smile on my bride's face. She had asked for a classical guitarist and Francesco came to the rescue. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a musician.
