Glenn performed at my outdoor wedding for 2.5 hours and I couldn't say enough good things. I was instantly impressed with his voice through some songs on his website. All my guests were complimenting us on how good of a job he did. We sent him a pre-defined playlist for the entire day based on the song list he had but he did mention several times that we could add songs if they weren't list. He had such a great robust list already it wasn't an issue! Glenn was on-time, professional, great at communicating and simply has amazing vocal and instrumental skills. I would absolutely use him for another event and recommend him to anyone. Thanks again, Glenn!

Glenn played at my outdoor destination wedding and dinner reception. He was amazing! Very easy to work with and accommodating. He requested a song list and created the perfect performance for my wedding ceremony as well as the dinner. He fit into the evening playing beautiful music and interacting with all the guests and helped create a perfect wedding celebration! Thank you Glenn for memories of a lifetime!

Glenn came to play at my husband's 50th birthday party. He showed up early, was flexible about his set up - and was totally prepared. He played a wide range of songs, many of which I requested ahead of time and were not on his original list. He responded promptly before the event to any emails and was a pleasure to work with throughout. His playing and singing the day of was smooth, talented and flawless. He fit into our event so perfectly. We were all delighted by the magical ambiance his beautiful voice and guitar playing set for our family gathering. I would hire him again in a heartbeat. Thanks! Devon
