BRIAN KELLY, Cape Cod
We were so pleased with Brian's performance for our wedding ceremony! We felt that his live performance was even better than his YouTube video samples (which we had already been impressed by and had helped us in deciding to hire him). His style was perfect to compliment our outdoor Cape wedding ceremony.

Brian played for us last weekend at a wedding and it could not have been a better experience from the moment I first contacted him until now. He was very easy to work with and was able to incorporate our song choices and recommend others to go along with the ones we already had in mind. He was always easy to contact and I never had any doubts about him throughout the process. He made it so easy! And on top of all of that, his talent is undeniable. I would highly recommend him to anyone!!

Brian was the perfect choice for my outdoor wedding. I wanted a light-hearted feel to it with a skilled acoustic guitarist and he delivered in every way. He was professional, easy to work with, and learned (or re-learned) a specific song I requested for walking down the aisle. He did a perfect job and I would definitely recommend him for anyone looking for an acoustic guitarist or performer for their wedding ceremony.
