Pete was amazing, I only wish I was a guest so I could have listened to more of his music! He was great to work with and responded quickly to all of my emails. Upon booking he went ahead and recorded my entrance song which was absolutely breathtaking. His music brought me to tears and I was so happy to have such a talented artist at our ceremony and cocktail hour. Mahalo for everything Pete!!

As a professional musician, I'm rather picky about these things... Pete was absolutely perfect as the solo guitarist for our wedding reception/luncheon. He was a pleasure to deal with, tailored his set lists precisely to our wishes, and (most importantly) played beautifully. I happily recommend him.

My husband and I are so glad that we chose Pete to play for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour! Not only was he extremely professional, but also played beautifully. We received many positive comments about his style of playing and song choices. The music took the whole experience to another level- I will never forget how it felt hearing the first few notes of my processional song as I finally started down the aisle. Thank you Pete!

Pete was our most attentive and detail-oriented vendor for our wedding. He was extremely knowledgeable about maintaining an efficient timeline for the day, obtaining important information from us that we never even thought of, and checking in periodically to offer assistance with music selection and decision-making. He is extremely professional and a talented musician! Our ceremony and cocktail hour wouldn't have been the same without him!

Pete was so great and knew a ton of tons we enjoyed (including the one we were adamant we had to walk down the aisle to!) I remember my dad before we went through the doors to walk me down the aisle saying "what is that? is that guitar? is it live? it sounds great you didnt tell me there was live music" and if my dad is impressed that means something!

We used Pete as our ceremony guitarist for our wedding at Normandy Farm in Blue Bell, PA. I was nervous about booking someone that we would never meet but Pete is very quick to answer emails and extremely detailed. His music added a nice romantic touch to our ceremony.

Pete provided beautiful solo guitar music for our ceremony and a wonderful jazz trio for our cocktail hour. He was very responsive through email and phone calls and really helped us to come up with a unique music list that suited our tastes. Our guests have not stopped talking about how amazing the live music was at our wedding. His music really helped to make our day unforgettable!

Pete was excellent to work with. He was very professional and easy to stay in contact with during the whole process leading up to our wedding. We weren't able to hear Pete play live prior to the wedding but listened to all his music on his website and on the day of the wedding I think it exceeded our expectations. If you are unsure about hiring someone without meeting them first I would highly recommend going for it! Pete also played for our cocktail hour and although we did not get to hear much of it as the bride and groom, we heard from the guests that the music was the perfect volume and style for the cocktail hour. I was very appreciative of the fact that Pete took the time to come and find us before he left because I had been hoping for the opportunity to officially meet him and thank him!
