Gary was amazing!!! He made the event so special we didn't even notice it was a monsoon outside where he was playing. All the guests loved his music and he made the day feel so special!

Gary did a fantastic job- very accomodating. We asked for specific music and he incorporated that. He has a great voice and a great range of music. He also downloaded music to play while he was on break- would highly recommend him.
