Dr. Keith Calmes was an absolute pleasure to work with and the perfect guitarist for our outdoor garden ceremony. He was extremely open and willing to learn all of our requests, was quick to respond e-mails and was overall very easy to work with. He is extremely talented! Our guests raved about his music even after the wedding! I would highly recommend him for any event.

Keith played acoustic guitar during our wedding ceremony. The music was gorgeous and he was able to play all of the songs my husband and I requested. The guests enjoyed the music and were able to make out each song that he played. We would highly recommend Keith.
