I am very picky about my music. I am not just handing out 5 stars to be nice. Aaron was totally awesome! If I didn't know it myself I had a party of 60 people constantly coming up to me in amazement saying 'where did you get this guy? He's so good!.' From his online video clips I could tell his voice and guitar playing were great. However, I was worried he might be a bit to mellow for a 40th b-day. To my delight, he played the room perfectly and didn't seem mellow (he also smiled more than in his video clips). I would hire him again in a heartbeat. I also will be following to see if he is playing locally so I can hear him again. Great value too!
