I highly recommend Stacy Arnold to anyone planning a wedding or just wanting a classical guitarist for an event. From the moment I booked him for our wedding, he was responsive, a breeze to work with, and went above and beyond to be accommodating. He has many selections on his playlist which we incorporated into our ceremony. When I asked him to play a song for the wedding processional that was not on the playlist, he took the time to learn the material and put together a beautiful arrangement. Stacy is very professional, the friendliest guy you will ever work with, and calms the anxiety of any bride-to-be. I could not have made a better choice!!!!

I hired Stacy to play as a surprise for my sister's Rehearsal Dinner, and he was wonderful to work with. He was willing to travel a long distance to play at the event, and was very quick to answer emails and phone calls. I could truly tell that he cared about making the event special. Stacy's music is absolutely beautiful. He played a fabulous selection of elegant classical guitar music and played requested songs even on a short notice. I highly recommend Stacy!
