Mr. Jamy was perfect for our event. He is a thoroughgoing artist with great skill in a variety of entertaining styles. He kindly prepared special accompaniments for a family member to sing after dinner. Additionally, he was exceptionally pleasant and a fascinating conversationalist. Our guests all enjoyed meeting him, I would certainly ask him again.

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.
