    90th birthday celebration

    Dave Hart and his guitar were Awesome! Everyone at my Mom's 90th birthday celebration enjoyed his music. Guests, including those with hearing aids, were able to converse easily, and were especially tickled with Dave's ability to play special requests from various decades. It was declared the best event that they had attended! Thank you Dave, you are the best!

    Not only is Dave extremely talented, personable and reliable, he also has a great presence and personality. He played wonderful guitar music in the lovely sunny gardens where we exchanged our vows.

    It was perfect & a lovely blend to complete our day. Dave's acoustic music fit magically and romantically during our wedding event.

    He made the wedding complete and I was so happy that I chose him to provide music for our special day!

    I recommend Dave to play at any venue!

    Dave is amazing! He was very responsive to my emails and called me to discuss the flow of the ceremony. He suggested all the songs cause we really didn't have our hearts set on anything. We had a destination wedding in Canada and I never met him until I was walking down the aisle. It was so comforting that he had set up and had things running without needing any guidance( I did not have a wedding coordinator). He was very professional and the entire ceremony was just perfect!
