Client Comments:
"My husband and I have never written to a musician before, but you must know how much we enjoyed your music! Early in the evening, my husband mentioned how much our daughter would enjoy your choices and how much he liked Andrew Lloyd Weber and magically you played Weber and more that we love. Then we were talking about my dad (passed years ago) and he and my husband loved Pink Panther, and then you played Pink Panther! Thank you so much!" - Susan and Bill King

"You just made my day playing 'Bohemian Rhapsody' on the acoustic guitar!"

"Some things are destined to be. My daughter's wedding was being held on Folly beach, SC and we had everything lined up except the music. I just happened to find Paul through a website in the Charleston area and he said that he would be able to play during the ceremony for us, even with the short notice. I was so thankful, and then he told me that he knew my father-in-law very well and was just around the corner from where I live. Wow! what a small world. We were more than pleased with Paul from his professionalism, promptness and attention to detail. His musical talent is phenomenal and he was a joy to work with. I just can't say enough, you made the evening enjoyable & memorable! Thanks so much." - Stacy Guariello

"I was struggling trying to put together a small quaint outside garden wedding ceremony for Oct 27th and only two weeks to plan it. We wanted a classical guitarist to play soft background music and music for the actual ceremony. We found Paul Bowman on the website. What a delight he was. He was able to accommodate us in all our needs. On such short notice and not-so perfect weather conditions. He was prompt and very professional, even was able to perform a couple song choices we requested that were not on his music list that he had to learn. He did a wonderful job and we enjoyed his performances, it was perfect, exactly what we were looking for". - T.Hudson.

"My wife and I had the opportunity to see Paul in Landrum SC a few months ago. We enjoyed his music so much that we have followed him from venue to venue in both NC and SC. Thursday evening we had a great culinary experience and musical experience at II Samuels in Spartenburg SC. We could open a bottle of wine and listen to Paul all night long. Not only is he a dedicated musician but also a great human being. Should you have an opportunity try and catch one of his performances....you won't be disappointed!!" Bob and Jayne, Western NC


"Paul played for our wedding on Sullivan's island, SC on 9/14/13. The ceremony music was fantastic--it was great to hear the wedding standards arranged for classical guitar. Paul was neatly dressed and on time, and brought his own speaker. The guests loved the music after the ceremony also, with fun upbeat songs including led zeppelin! For his services, he charged a very reasonable price, especially compared to other similar artists. I recommend him highly!"
Allison M., Sullivan's Island, SC

Do not hire! We hired him to play at our ceremony and he was supposed to be at our venue at 230pm for a 5pm ceremony. We had talked to him 3 days prior with no issues. However, the day of he did not show up and decided to email us at 1230 that he was not coming because he was having dry wall installed (in north Carolina, we are in indiana) We did not get the email until 2 hours before the ceremony because let's be honest who checks their email the day of. He did not notify gig masters that he cancelled on us so we could not get a replacement in time and we had to use our phones to play music for the ceremony. Completely unproffesional!

Paul played at my outdoor wedding for 15 min before and during the ceremony, as well as for the cocktail hour. He was wonderful! He is very talented and really brought a magical feeling to my wedding. Many of my guests complimented his beautiful music and how much it added to the atmosphere of the wedding. He knows a ton of songs and offered to learn new ones just for us if needed. He is very professional and responded quickly to my emails. I highly recommend him for a wedding or any other event!
