Pete did a great job! He played before and after the ceremony as well as the songs I selected for the ceremony itself. I liked the fact that he has sample songs on his page so customers can hear and see him play and also get to know his style. I requested a song that I wanted to walk down the isle to. He put together an arrangement and it turned out perfect. Thank you Pete!!

Pete & Jane played for my daughters outdoor wedding at the Plantation Golf & CC in Ft. Myers FL. The music was beautiful and the duo was not phased when it started to pour right after the ceremony. The cocktail hour had to be quickly moved inside and Pete & Jane adapted quickly to accommodate our guests.

We were very fortunate to have Peter a part of our wedding weekend! We ran into Peter at an event thrown by our resort - Longboat Key Club. Peter was playing music, and we felt that he had a great tone and presense at the event. We knew that we wanted to include Peter. Peter performed during our Rehearsal Dinner, and provided music for our guests. He was simply the perfect touch to bring our event from good to outstanding. Peter was prompt, responsive, and absolutely exceeded our expectations. We are so happy that Peter was a part of our wedding, and I would highly recommend!!

We used Peter Simms for our ceremony and was very impressed. He is professional, courteous, and very easy to work with. He brought his own portable equipment and offered to supply microphones to our Officiant and vocalist free-of-charge. He recommended songs to include in our prelude, processional, and recessional, as well as took our requests for certain songs we wanted included. We couldn't imagine a better fit for our ceremony! Thanks, Pete!

Pete did an amazing job playing for our wedding. He learned a special song for me to walk down to see my groom for the first time and it was perfect! He really added that something special to our wedding day.

Pete was great to work with! He was very easy to get a hold of (email and phone). He was timely and performed all of the music to perfection. The acoustic guitar during our ceremony was my favorite part of the day. Pete also played during our cocktail hour and played a variety of music.

if we had to do our wedding over again, we would hire him again!

I heard about Pete through a recommendation from my wedding officiant. I went to his website, and my fiance and I were able to listen to several samples of his guitar music. We liked what we heard and gave Pete a call. He was very prompt in getting back to me when I made my initial inquiry. Pete is very friendly and extremely accomodating. He said that if there was something that we would like him to play and he doesn't know it, he would learn it. As it turned out, there was a song that we wanted played as the recessional piece and he didn't know it, so he learned it. It sounded awesome. Pete is professional, friendly, extremely talented and reasonably priced. We highly recommend Pete! Stephanie & Dave Hallidy

Pete is a wonderful guitarist! He was very quick to respond throughout the planning process and made our song selection very easy! On the day, he was on time and when the weather through us off, he played at least an extra hour for us to help keep our guests entertained. Unfortunately I was too focused to be listening to him play, but I have heard numerous comments about how wonderful he sounded! I would highly recommend Pete!!
