    John played the music for our wedding ceremony and he was amazing. I was actually running late that day and I am thankful that his music kept the people waiting entertained. He is very professional. We actually let him choose the songs to play as we know that he knows better and he recommended songs that has strong melodies as he will be playing solo. We couldn't be happier that we picked him.

    Highly recommended!

    Excellent experience

    They were proffessional, excellent musicians, friendly, but low key so as to not add to any of the wedding chaos. Would definitely hire them again
