I have only good things to say about Dave! He played music for our ceremony and cocktail hour, and he was awesome! I had a very specific request for my song to walk down the aisle, and Dave learned the song for us and played it beautifully. We live out of town, so Dave was kind enough to play songs over the phone for me before the wedding so I could hear some of the songs. He is extremely talented, very professional, and helped make my wedding ceremony perfect. If you are considering having guitar music in your wedding, you need to hire Dave!!! You will not regret it!

We hired Dave for my daughter's wedding and had some special requests. He exceeded every expectation. He was prepared and professional. He was responsive to every request and well rehearsed. He was wonderful to work with. It was an outdoor wedding and rained during the ceremony. He continued to play as planned and relocated all his equipment indoors when the festivities moved inside.

What a beautiful and joyful event. I'm enjoying sharing how the pouring down rain didn't spoil anyone's joyful mood. I think about all the preparation that everyone, and particularly the wedding party, made to look wonderful for the wedding only to have all those beautiful hair do's, carefully applied cosmetics, expensive garments and shoes to be drenched in the rain. The wedding party all deserve kudos for standing there like soldiers in formation!*:-)/\:-) high five



My equipment survived, although I was a little nervous about the electronics and my classical guitar, everything dried out just fine*#:-S whew!

WOW! What a beautiful performance to compliment our Christmas Wedding!
His voice, his guitar, and his musical presentation were the crowning touch to our very Special Day. All our guests loved him and his music! There is no question he will be the first choice for our next party. He was GREAT!

Dave was absolutely fantastic to work with. He took the time to go out to see our venue ahead of time and learned new music for our ceremony! He is very skilled as a guitarist and singer and was professional in every sense of the word. Many thanks again Dave! (And we appreciate you sticking with us even through the rain!)

Dave was PERFECT. He is a great musician, worked up some special songs I wanted to add to his already vast repertoire, and was so fun. He even allowed my son to play a song on his equipment. He played acoustic during the ceremony, plugged in an amp and we were ready to celebrate. I rate him 5.0 even though the little rater thing above says 4.9....software glitch I guess?
