Pete was absolutely wonderful to work with! He provided great music for our guests as they entered our venue but also sounded amazing while the bridal party and I walked down the aisle. Pete was so easy to work with and provided all the information we needed to know before booking him. He responds quickly, very knowledgable and is affordable. It was so nice to work with him and made our wedding planning easy. Pete gives you an extensive list of songs that you can choose from and I bet each song sounds beautiful. I would book Pete again for any event that I need a musician. Thank you for making our day special!

My husband and I are so happy to have had Pete Smyser play the guitar for our wedding ceremony. It was the perfect touch to a special day. Pete can play anything. He can play classical music, contemporary and jazz, too. He has so many song choices to help personalize the event. It was hard to choose, however Pete communicated very well to help us determine which music best suited our taste and which songs best fit the venue and day. Not only is Pete a talented musician, he pays attention to details such as attire, parking, seating and guest amount. He coordinated with the officiant and wedding planner to confirm when to begin the processional and recessional music. Pete is very thorough. His prices were very reasonable as well. My husband and I are extremely satisfied with Pete Smyser and highly recommend him.

Pete was a great vendor to work with. Incredibly responsive via email and even allows for Payments via PayPal (No more checks and snail-mail) which is always appreciated and makes for easy planning when you have many vendors and due dates for payments. All our guests raved about the music during cocktail hour and the ambiance created with our ceremony music selection took things to the next level. Lastly, his website was incredibly easy to use and his high-quality audio samples were very helpful in making our musical selections!

We hired Pete as the guitarist for my wedding to play music throughout the ceremony and cocktail hour. He was so easy to plan with and was extremely helpful in choosing songs for my wedding day. He followed up immediately when I contacted him, and he remained in contact with me throughout the whole planning process. He is truly amazing on the guitar, and I fully recommend him. His pricing is very reasonable and the quality of service you receive is worth it 100%.

Pete came highly recommended to us by our wedding DJ, Vaughn Walter of Silver Sound. We were looking for a live musician to play music during our cocktail hour and Pete surpassed all of our expectations! He even rescheduled a prior event commitment so that he could play at our wedding! He was very responsive and easy to communicate with, extremely professional and his music was so beautiful. Our guests were all raving about the cocktail hour music, it was the best way to start off our wedding reception celebration! We are so happy that we could have Pete play at our wedding and I would highly recommend him to anyone who's looking for something very special to add to their wedding to make it a truly unforgettable evening.
