Honestly don’t wait! Book him today!
Brian absolutely exceeded our expectations - an incredible entertainer!
- To begin, Brian was great to work with overall. He arrived early with all his equipment in tow, and set up quickly and professionally.
- He was incredibly friendly, approachable and professional. He engaged with us and our guests, and got everyone involved - taking requests and getting everyone dancing and singing along.
- He was enthusiastic about our playlist (which was a joy for us!). He really got involved - he took requests on the spot which helped to personalize the day and further engage our guests. By the end he felt like an old friend!
- Most importantly - Brian is an incredibly talented and charismatic performer. He is an AMAZING singer and guitar player. We got so many compliments from guests.
Brian was the cherry on the top of our wedding party, he absolutely made our day. Thank you for everything Brian!!

Made the night
Brian helped curate the song list, and played from the ceremony until the end of the night and made everything super easy.
He was a spectacular singer and musician and I would happily employ Brian's services again in the future.
A Musical Wedding Extravaganza
