Judson Hurd did a great job! He played the piano for the Rehearsal Dinner and After Party. It added so much to both parties.
I was very pleased!
Justin did an excellent job working with our limited information we provided him. Would recommend him and use him again.
I cannot imagine having a better pianist for my daughter's wedding. Not only did he play everything we asked him to on the piano, he made my new son-in-law's dream come true by playing the organ as the newly married couple did their recessional. Judson is super talented and very kind. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for the perfect pianist!!!!
Judson was great and very easy to work with. We gave lots of music for him to learn and he performed well.
Judson not only took the time to learn specific songs for our wedding ceremony, he added his own special flare to some of the songs! He was so kind and easy to work with. He was also beyond timely, professional, and prepared for our event. I would hire him again in a heartbeat and recommend that anyone looking for a pianist in the Savannah/Charleston areas to book him. He was amazing!
Judson was wonderful. He worked around our crazy schedule - above and beyond what was required . The music was beautiful and professionally performed.
Judson was great! Thanks so much for helping us with this. Will certainly keep this site in mind for future use. Much obliged for your time.
I had Judson play the piano in my home during a house-warming party. Prior to the event Judson was very communicative. He arrived early and was warmed up and ready to go at the scheduled time. Judson played throughout the entirety of the event. He is extremely talented and was a pleasure to have in our home. Our guests enjoyed the music as well. Thank you!
Judson did an outstanding job for us for our son's rehearsal dinner. He played the perfect playlist and at the perfect volume so our guests could mingle and talk. I would certainly recommend him for any function.
I was extremely satisfied with Judson's performance for my husband's 60th birthday party. The guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music. Judson kept in touch with me about my needs for the party. He arrived early and played for the entire length of time he was booked.

Judson Hurd grew up in the beautiful country of Paraguay, at an early age he was deeply influenced and mesmerized by this simple way of living. At the age four he stumbled across his mother's childhood piano. His first 'teacher' was an old instrumental piano cassette a missionary couple left after leaving the country. The expressive, folk, piano vibrations of Philip Aaberg (Judson's childhood idol) and the simple, romantic Latin culture had a creative impact on his music.
After years of being self taught and improvising smooth, cool grooves over Bach inventions his family moved to Ciudad Del Este where he began his formal studies at the Franz Schubert Conservatory. At the age of 12 Judson Hurd rose to be one of the prominent youth pianists of Paraguay. He went on to study music theory and composition at Young Harris College and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro School of Music .
Judson now resides in Wilmington, North Carolina where he is still moving audiences through his music. His music has reached over 2,000,000 views on YouTube. He writes music for radio, TV, including companies Android, Jaguar, Land Rover, the Oprah Show, PBS, recorded countless session work, and has performed alongside Five For Fighting, Gavin Degraw, Fighting Instinct, Todd Agnew, pianist David Nevue, and many others.
Additional Booking Notes
