Amazing Wedding Experience!

I highly recommend Chris Platt to anyone who is wedding planning!

Excellent communication and easy to work with - Chis gave us confidence that our wedding music would be exactly what we imagined. He was able to work within our budget, and we are so glad we did not opt for using recordings. Live music added so much more than just music.

If you truly want an exceptional live music experience, go with Chris Platt.

We had the pleasure of having Chris play at our wedding and we got so many compliments on the music and atmosphere.

Even better than expected!

After reading a ton of glowing reviews about Chri Platt I decided to take the plunge and get in contact. We had already had another musician suddenly stop responding to emails and the wedding day was drawing nearer.
Chris was fantastic at responding and keeping in communication, and made everything simple for my big day!
One of my best memories was as I was about to walk down the aisle, hearing the song I had requested played so beautifully. I also threw a couple curve balls with my reaquests for songs that I had never heard in a particular style (and believe me, I searched) but they were able to deliver (and did a fantastic job on top of that!)
If you are looking for an extremely talented, creative, and professional team, there is no one else I would reccomend! SO impressed!

Amazing Engagement Party Music

We had Chris and two of his band mates play at our engagement party in January and it was fantastic. They were on time, professional and very adaptable to our space. They read the energy of the room and made sure the vibe was perfect all night. We had so many compliments from our guests about the group and we are hopefully going to be using them for our wedding ceremony as well this fall.

Beautiful, professional ceremony/cocktail music.

Chris and Angela were a great addition to our wedding ceremony. The service/communication was very professional and their execution on our wedding day was flawless. The music was beautiful with Chris on guitar and Angela on vocals. They easily accommodated our song requests and perfectly adapted to different genres of music for our ceremony. We also received many complements from our guests on how much their music was enjoyed. I would book them again without hesitation.

Absolutely Amazing!

Chris and his band were one of the highlights of our wedding! They were so lovely to work with leading up to the wedding and made us feel like they truly understood the vibes we were going for. They completely set the tone for the day and made our wedding feel like the beautiful Sunday brunch we always dreamed of. I literally could not have imagined a better day and I honestly think a large part of it was the band! So many of our friends had said the exact same thing and loved the music. I cannot recommend them enough!!!

Chris is very professional and extremely talented. He was flexible enough to meet with us multiple times and discuss our vision for the wedding. I would recommend Chris for any kind of celebratory event.

Review for Chris Platt Trio

I first heard Chris and his trio performing at ROM Friday Night Live and spent better part of the night listening to them perform, absolutely mesmerized. We were lucky to have Chris’s trio perform at our wedding’s cocktail hour and they absolutely lived up to all the anticipation. Chris was great to work with, his communication always prompt, clear and professional. The band sounded fantastic, looked classy and was an absolute highlight of the reception for us and according to many of our guests. We requested a few classics that aren’t all that easy to cover (Killing me softly, Nature Boy, and My baby shot me down) and they did so beautifully. I only hope I get a chance to listen to them perform in the future.

We went with Chris, plus a bass player and drummer. Chris was super easy to communicate with, responds quickly, and was very professional. We got so many compliments from our guests on the band! Thanks again!

Guitarist & Bandleader

Hello!

My name is Chris Platt, and I am a guitarist from Toronto. Since 2010, I have played for hundreds of weddings, corporate, and personal events, all with happy clients and guests. Everything from solo guitar to larger bands, I have a wonderful roster of professional musicians I love to work with that make every live music experience one to remember.

On a personal note, I enjoy reading, (watching) stand-up comedy, and F1. I also have an adorable dog named Poco (inquire for pictures, I have thousands) who gets along with everyone, including the seven foster dogs we've had over the years.
