I am a classically trained musician with experience playing cello in the Alma College Symphony Orchestra as well as local West Michigan musical acts/bands including Eric Engblade, Olivia Mainville, and Watching For Foxes.
I can play a wide variety of classical and modern arrangements and any requests desired for weddings and special events. I also have numerous musician friends; so if requested, I could possibly put together a duet, trio, or quartet with piano, violin, viola, guitar, vocals etc.
I am also a singer-songwriter on the side, if that is of interest for the event.
It was a beautiful night and Max did a great job playing some music for our dinner out at our campground. I played in the pavilion for the guests and the campers in the surrounding area. Everyone enjoyed the evening very much! Thanks, Max!
We are so happy that we had Max come out and play for our wedding ceremony. His music added a special and memorable component to our ceremony! He was very easy to work with, played the songs that we requested (and was helpful with coming up with songs and working with our requests), and our guests very much enjoyed his music. We certainly would recommend Max to anyone else looking for a musical addition to their event.
Max did a great job for our Good Friday production. He played wonderfully and was very easy to work with! I especially appreciate his preparation and flexibility. I am looking forward to the possibility of working with him in the future.
Max played the cello (and helped find a violinist to play with him) for my wedding ceremony. He was very responsive via the GigSalad website throughout the process, and took all of my worries away regarding the ceremony music. He was very professional and warm in all of our interactions! Most importantly, the music was lovely and made our special day absolutely perfect. Highly recommend!
Thank you so much, Your music set the mood for one of the most memorable
Moments I will ever experience in my life..
My Daughters Wedding..
The guest loved it..I know unfortunately we did get rained out of the garden yes a very
Stressful moment..Once you began to play it was so calming and beautiful
I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to meet you. Thank you
Response from Minstrel Max Morrison:
Thank you so much for the lovely review, Ruth. It was great meeting you too, and I am very thankful you had me play for the special day. Take care!
