Pavel Jany was a wonderful choice for a wedding ceremony musician. He was responsive to any questions and very accommodating to any requests we had. He also is a phenomenal musician -- couldn't be happier with our selection.

Pavel was a fantastic addition to our wedding party. He was professional, friendly, and interacted well with all of our guests. Everyone really enjoyed him! Pavel even took the time to learn a special song per my request and played that at the appropriate time. I would highly recommend Pavel to anyone looking for a talented, experienced guitarist at their event.

We loved every minute of our music! Pavel is extremely talented and provided the perfect music for our ceremony and cocktail hour. He was one of my favorite vendors to work with because he made the process SO easy! Before I hired him through GigMaster, I was able to ask him some questions via email. He was quick to reply and very knowledgeable about the information he provided. He obviously has a tremendous amount of experience and was very professional and personable throughout the whole process leading up to the wedding, especially on the wedding day itself. I couldn't be happier with my selection. I would hire him again if I could to do it all over again!
