He was very polite and on time, however we were not able to hear him singing or playing the guitar, the sound was very low.
Very professional easy to work with! Learned a number of new songs just for us, would highly recommend
Sam filled is on bass for a gig for our cover band and couldn’t have been nicer or more easy going! Very helpful and a talented bass player! We appreciated all his hard work.
We could not have been more happy with our choice in selecting Samuel. He was simply perfect for our event! He is so talented and was able to provide exactly what was needed for our New Year's wedding celebration; he was so very flexible with scheduling and accommodating to our requests. We can't wait until we can invite him back to our next event! All our guests commented on how wonderfully he played and sang all night. Samuel is a true performer and will no doubt be a true success in all he does with his talents. Thank you to Samuel for helping create such a wonderful and memorable evening for us and our guests!
Samuel was Awesome...very personable...just made our time special..
Samuel John was a perfect solo performer for our wedding. Very professional and a great musician, he asked us what type of music we wanted, what NOT to play and he was perfect in the music selection - mixed from old to new. I would highly recommend to hire him for any type of event! We still get comments from our guests of what a great selection of music and what great of a performer he was. Thanks you!!
Response from Samuel John:
Thank you so much for your kind words and recommendations. It was a pleasure playing for you both at your lovely wedding.
It was a special night for me as I proposed to my future wife and wanted someone who could play romantic love songs and he nailed it! Very professional and easy to work with. I'll be calling him again in the future for more events, that's for sure.
Samuel was amazing at our outdoor fall wedding last year!! During the ceremony we had a torrential downpour and he didn't miss a beat!! He was easy to work with, professional and truly passionate about making our day special. He even took the time to learn the specific songs I had requested throughout the day. Samuel was an absolutely pleasure and went above and beyond for us!!
Samuel was a great choice for the party. The guests enjoyed his music and his voice. He was able to adapt to the crowd and go with the flow. Thanks Samuel. Looking forward to hearing you play again soon!

What to Expect
I tailor each and every performance based on the needs of the venue and or client. Whether you are looking for a high energy acoustic rock performance or an intimate setting, or maybe simply looking for some background music for your guests or patrons to enjoy I can provide what you need. However, no matter the setting, I am very passionate about the music I play and strive to entertain everyone i play for be it 5 people or 5,000.
After playing in multiple different bands ranging from indie, to rock, to metal, Samuel John decided to follow his true passion in writing songs and playing solo acoustic guitar. Pulling influences from Artists such as Andy Mckee, Iron and Wine, Antoine Dufour, Dave Matthews, Don alder, and Jack Johnson Samuel John Bridges the gap between solo acoustic guitar and singer-songwriter boundaries.
Additional Booking Notes
I provide all gear that I require, Unless the setting is in a very large hall, cathedral, or even larger concert halls. In these instances I may require more amplification.
