A true class act. Our ceremony was made that more special with the beautiful music David played. Everyone and I mean everyone at the ceremony had something wonderful to say about both David as a person as well as a musician. Again, music was loved by everyone. Thank you again David about making our day so very special!!

We had a terrific experience working with David Adele prior to our wedding and his performance the day of was even greater. He is a true artist and his music added a magical feel to our wedding. Multiple guests attest to how his music moved them through the event. Prior to the wedding he accommodated changes, his response was immediate, and he arranged 2 songs for us, one of them being our first dance which he played for us on the dance floor as we danced, a truly magical experience. I would highly recommend David Adele and I plan on using him again in the future as it was an honor working with him. I'd give him 10 stars if I could.

We had David create three custom arrangements for our ceremony, which were beautiful beyond our dreams. The first time I heard one of them, my fiance (now husband) found me in the living room sitting my computer sobbing because the song was so beautiful. I ended up walking down the aisle to that one. Our reception didn't have dancing (venue restriction). So, the entertainment was heavily dependent on David and he was AMAZING. The classical and Spanish pieces "wowed" people without overwhelming or pulling focus from it being our day. People also got a kick out of hearing Stairway to Heaven on a classical guitar. David is the best by far!

To Jenny and Jason, Thank you for your very kind review. It was my honor to play for you on your beautiful day. I loved that little chapel and the surrounding grounds. It was a truly special day that I won't forget. I wish the absolute best that life has to offer for both of you. Cheers! - David Adele

Wow! We are so happy we chose David to perform at our wedding! He is a true professional from first contact to the big day and even followed-up with pictures the day after. Our guests absolutely raved about how talented he is and how his music helped create an amazing ambiance. David took the time to learn and new song for my bride to walk down the isle and it was executed perfectly. I would highly recommend using David's services to enhance any event you have no matter what size. Mahalo Nui Loa (Thank you very much) David!

David Adele - Classical Guitarist’s Response:

Dustin and Julie, Thank you both very much for letting me provide your music on your very special day. I thought the idea of using an arrangement of "White Sandy Beach" was a absolutely beautiful choice for the setting and mood of the bridal walk. I definitely will not forget how gorgeous that sunset was during the ceremony any time soon. I wish you both a lifetime of love, laughter, happiness and adventure. Mahalo -David Adele

I am a wedding an event planner in San Diego and David played at my husbands Law School graduation party. He was always very prompt to respond to emails and calls during planning to make sure everything was going to run smoothly. Despite driving from Orange County and dealing with the San Diego fires that were making travel difficult he still showed up on time and was ready to go. The music was AWESOME and a cool mix of all of our favorite songs and genres. I will be referring him in the future to my clients. On top of everything he is just a really nice guy! Thank you David! Everyone loved you and our guests were blown away by your talent!

Ashley, Thank you for the very kind review. I had a really great time at your party. Despite a flat tire and San Diego being on fire, everything worked out as it should have. Your friends and family were really great to me, as were you and Derek. I hope that we can work together again in the future! Best wishes to you and Derek. -David Adele

David was amazing to work with! He had music samples readily available... however, I must say that his music was even better LIVE than on his demos! He is extremely personable and always got back to me very promptly. He provided classical guitar music for my daughter's wedding ceremony as well as pre-wedding and cocktail hour. Many of our guests shared with me how much they enjoyed his music. He was very professional and I would recommend him HIGHLY!!! If you are looking for a guitarist for an event, David Adele is your man!

David Adele drove to San Diego to play for my daughters wedding. He was awesome. He composed a version of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" at the bride and grooms request. It was beautiful. All of the guests commented on how talented David was. I would highly recommend David to play at any event. Thank you David for making the wedding magical.

Long before we got engaged, my now-wife had a special song in mind for when she walked down the aisle (the Theme from Jurassic Park - a beautiful piece of music and one that has special meaning for us). We hoped to have it performed live by a guitarist. David was delighted for the challenge and when I presented him with the sheet music, he was happy to learn it. He even made a recording of himself playing it so we could hear how it would sound. His communication was excellent from start to finish. On the day of the event, he performed beautifully. He's a true professional and artist, as well as a kind, generous guy.

To Alex and Kristin, It was my absolute pleasure to play for you both on your most special day. Your venue was perfect and your beautiful vows that you wrote to each other was even more perfect. I wish you both the happiest lifetime together surrounded by great friends and family. (However, I think you already have all of that!) All my best, David Adele.

David was absolutely amazing! He played the guitar during my ceremony and it was so beautiful. He even played during our cocktail hour since he noticed the DJ hadn't started playing yet, even though we didn't even pay him to do that!! He really went above and beyond, even sending me pictures of the ceremony. I definitely recommend him! I also want to add that I found him online and paid him online. I had never even met him until the day of the ceremony but he is very trustworthy and professional. He is also very quick with communication. Thanks, David!

Katelyn, Thank you so much for hiring me and for the very kind review. As I mentioned to you, I loved playing for your ceremony. Being set at Strawberry Farms Golf Course, it combined my two greatest loves....guitar and golf! I did not have a problem at all playing while the DJ was setting up, I would have continued on playing the entire cocktail hour if necessary. I was having a really great time. I wish you and Jeffrey the very best life has to offer and I hope someday I can play again for you! - David Adele

David played at my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour 4 months ago and was absolutely incredible. He was professional and prompt right from the beginning. Fast responses, and he did an amazing job customizing our ceremony song for us. All of our guests told us how beautiful the music was, and David even sent us pictures he had captured of the wedding ceremony before/after. My two regrets was that I didn't get to shake his hand and thank him in person at the wedding, and that I reviewed him so late! If I can sum him up in a few words it would be talented, professional, kind, and respectful. I would highly recommend David Adele for any event. Thank you David!

Jessie, Thank you so much for the great review. Your wedding was beautiful at the Sand And Surf Hotel. Weddings are always a bit hectic, and unfortunately, yours is not the first time I've played a wedding and did not meet the bride or groom. It was my pleasure playing for you and I hope our paths cross again someday! All my best, David Adele.
