Great all around performer

We booked Kurt to play a 3 day event for the The Brass Tap - Craft Beer &
Wine bar at the West Coast Franchise Expo on Oct 12-14 2012. We had done this blindly and didn't have any expectations of his performance.
We were very pleasently suprised by his perfromance, so much that we insisted on having him return on Sunday which was up in the air to see is we wanted a performer for the day.

We received exceptional feed back from numerous of the attendees and also exhibitors on how talented he was. He far exceeded our expectations and would definitely recommend him for our future events and for anyone who wishes to book his time.

Great, Great, Great.

Highly recommended

Kurt was a big part of setting a great mood amongst all my guests. He definitely accommodated well with sound, equipment and his easy go personality. He was able to pull together a "special request" song without any hesitation and sang it beautifully! There was tears in my guests eyes that only a true musician can bring out. My only fault and regret is that I was not able to record more of his songs for memory. If my next event calls for entertainment I would absolutely ask him back. Thanks so much Kurt for a great performance, I appreciate you beating through the heat and very difficult parking situation!

Fantastic entertainment. Super easy to work with!

If you’re looking for a talented, professional and dynamic guitarist that’s super easy to work with, look no further than Kurt Hunter. As a seasoned event planner, I know firsthand what can happen if your entertainment isn’t up to par. Luckily, from the moment we hired Kurt to entertain our high-end clients, our team never had cause to be concerned. Kurt was attentive, prompt, flexible and very well received. We even purchased a big batch of his CDs to give away as parting gifts and our attendees are still raving about him. Truly, if you haven’t worked with Kurt yet, you’re missing out!

Awesome Performance!!

I was very pleased with the entertainment. Kurt is a very talented acoustic guitarist/ singer. The overall performance was outstanding and will suggest to add your duets as part of your service. As soon as I posted what I was looking for Kurt immediately responded back and was able to add my event on a short notice. The live sound and equipment was very clear and crisp similar to how a satellite radio sounds but better. He was prompt and professional. There was a large variety of songs to pick from and played every song requested as well. The only downside was he couldn't play longer due to another gig on his schedule. Great work Kurt and Britney and thank you so much.
