Giovanni is amazing! He is so personable and thoughtful and an outstanding performer. He provided such wonderful energy for our party and from beginning to end of the entire process was such a pleasure to work with. I'm ready to plan another event just so we can have him there to play:)!

Giovanni was absolutely incredible! I booked him three weeks before my wedding and he was a dream. He was very quick, responsive, and friendly. I loved that I didn't have to worry about him at all. He arrived early to both the ceremony and reception venue to set up. He set the perfect mood for each venue and made everything so perfect. Did I forget to mention how talented he is? The guitar is just an extension of who he is and his artistry shows. When I walked down the aisle all I could think was how happy I was that I chose him. Do not think twice, book this incredible man! If I ever have another party/event you better believe I will book him! THANK YOU Giovanni <3

Talented, and KIND... You have come to the right place. From the moment I requested a quote, Giovanni was extremely responsive to all of my questions. He has very wonderful sense of business and service! He followed up weeks before, and days before, just to make sure everything was perfect. Accepts requests and is willing to learn new songs. Has an extensive repertoire. I am grateful because although our ceremony started 30 mins late, Giovanni kept playing his beautiful music. There are many guitarists you will find, but I promise you they will not be as amazing (in every sense) as Giovanni. BRAVO!
