It was a rainy, stormy farm wedding and plans changed last minute. Jean Charles showed up, and set himself up to play music in the corner of the huge tent to entertain guests while everyone set up inside the tent. He stuck around the perfect amount of time. He also knew exactly the music we wanted. Excellent!

Jean played classical guitar during our wedding ceremony and for our guests while they arrived at the church. Everyone loved the music over traditional organ music. Jean's music helped make our day even more memorable. We had a few special requests and Jean didn't hesitate to help us out. I would hire him again in a heartbeat.

Jean Charles was a very gracious man. He came dressed for the part and was early. He had good sound equipment for modestly boosting the instrument as well. Jean Charles provided background music for the event while people visited and toured a private home that was for sale. I (and everyone else who was there) would recommend him for a function such as ours. John B Hanover NH
