John played at my daughter’s wedding reception and everyone commented on how beautiful the music was and how it added to the night. I am so glad I found him and will absolutely be hiring him again. The night was perfect and the music was such a contributing factor!
John was available, and I was so impressed by the online samples I booked him. John showed up with all his equipment and looked very professional. Throughout the luncheon, he seamlessly worked with the MC as we went from music to announcements and back again. Several people complimented me on the music choice and asked me how to book him for other events. John was talented, polite, professional and just downright a pleasure to work with.
If there were more than 5 stars, I would give John even more. John performed at my wedding and cocktail hour Spectacularly. So many guests came up to me saying that they absolutely loved the music. With only a One day notice, he learned and arranged requests that made my special day so much more personal. I wholeheartedly recommend John to play for your wedding or other event. I could not be more happy with hiring him. I even just bought his CD, so I can listen in my car.

John is an amazing guitarist. Perfect for our event.
Talented, reliable, professional, personable, drama-free, and responsive. I would not hesitate to book again (and hope to) or to recommend.
We recently hired John to play background music for our wedding reception. He was punctual and set up quickly, and his equipment was appropriate for the venue. John's playing was excellent; his classical/Spanish pieces were beautiful, as were his interpretations of more modern/popular pieces. Most guests specifically told us how much they enjoyed his playing throughout the night. There's not much else to be said that hasn't been mentioned in other reviews - I would thoroughly recommend John for anyone seeking a guitar soloist.
No need for you to look any further for a guitarist. John knocks it out if the park! We had a small wedding ceremony and dinner to follow, and John truly made the evening. His music is impeccable, he is in tune with the vibe of the crowd, and adjusts accordingly. John even filled last minute requests of songs he didn’t have in his repertoire! In addition to his professionalism and talent, he’s truly a sweetheart. You’ve gotta go with John!
John was amazing - I couldn't have asked for a better guitarist to play at my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. He was professional, quick with responding via email or phone, self sufficient when he arrived for our event, and Amazingly talented! All of my guests had nothing but positive things to say when he was done playing at our wedding. I highly recommend him for any event you may be having - especially a wedding.
Michael was great! He listened to everything we needed and delivered exactly what were looking for! As the bride, I was very busy and I didn't even get a chance to meet him until after the wedding, but he had taken care of everything and I didn't have to worry about anything! Very talented and professional!
The scale only goes up to 5? I'd give more stars if I could! John was the perfect choice for us for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. He is exceptionally talented, and also very easy to work with. He gave us some great choices for songs since we weren't sure what we wanted for certain parts of our ceremony. Tavi was also willing to play or learn specific songs if we wanted them. The ceremony music was absolutely beautiful! 100% recommended!
Amazing talent!! John played our ceremony music for our wedding and it was absolutely beautiful! We had so many guests commenting on how great he was. I would definitely recommend him!! Thank you!!
