Birthday Party - Adult

Gary performed for a surprise birthday party at our home for about sixty guests. I received many complements for his music throughout the night and days later, so I know the guests enjoyed his music very much. He set the right mood through his song selection and playing style - it was great listening and really made the party a special event. I would hire him again in minute and recommend him strongly.

Highest marks for Mr. Reed.

Mr. Reed played background music at a 30 person dinner party in a private room in an upscale eatery in Manhattan. He was very professional, personable and responded to requests for a bit of dance music later in the evening with expertise. He comes with our highest recommendation and, should the situation arise, I would feel very comfortable engaging his services again. Nothing but highest marks.

I've had the pleasure of working with singer/songwriter Gary Reed both in the studio and live performances. His song list includes many popular tunes that people always enjoy. He is also a very accomplished fingerstyle guitarist with a giant catalog of memorable songs he has written. Anyone attending one of his shows is in for a major treat!

I hired Gary for one of my clients. I am a Marriage Proposal Planner and my client needed someone to play romantic music as well as "Bless the Broken Road" by Rascal Flats. My client was very happy with Gary's performance and professionalism and I would recommend him again to any of my clients.
