"We here at Applebees, have had Gordon playing in our restaurant on Wednesday nights for quite some time now. Gordon has a magnetic personality that pairs well with his wonderful musical talent which speaks for itself. We have many loyal guests that come weekly just to see Gordon! I, myself always look forward to Wednesday, as I know that my restaurant will have a much different “feel” after 9pm when Gordon arrives."
~Dan Walko, Applebee's Bar Manager (Vancouver, WA)
"Having Gordon play for my wedding was amazing and well worth it. His voice matched perfectly with the songs we wanted him to sing. He did a good...I mean great job! I would hire Gordon again. I highly recommend him."
"One of our employees heard Gordon play and thought he would be perfect for our location. We were very glad that we tracked him down. Gordon is very professional and our guests really enjoyed his performance. He was able to read the crowd and adjust his songs accordingly. We booked every available date he had open! We are looking forward to having him back every summer and highly recommened him for next event."
“We were lucky enough to have Gordon Avery, perform for us at the Aloft Hotel! Not only is he professional, but he is a very talented musician. His choice of music was current and something the crowd in our lounge, Wxyz, enjoyed. The audience loved his voice and he is awesome on the guitar too. I had several guests come up to us and ask who he was and if would be performing again. We now have several performances lined up and are happy to have him to have found him!”
~Crystal Sincoff, Aloft Hotel, Manager
“Gordon was a great addition to our private house party! He was courteous and professional on the business end, and entertained and interacted with our guests that made the evening special. I'll be booking Gordon again for private and business functions in the future!”

"I hired Gordon to perform a song as part of a surprise marriage proposal. It was a moment I wanted to go perfectly. With Gordon's help, it did. Gordon took the time to really discuss what I wanted, and even followed up afterwards to confirm specific details. It was clear that Gordon is reliable. He was easy to reach by phone and promptly responded to emails. When it came to the actual proposal, his performance was great. He did exactly what we'd discussed, but he still had a very natural, seemingly unscripted presence. Every time my fiance tells the story of how I proposed, she can't stop mentioning how much she loved Gordon's performance. I feel the same way about the performance, but I was equally impressed by Gordon's professionalism and preparation throughout the process."
"Gordon Avery is a multi-talented artist, composer, and performer. He is relevant, current and individually accommodating with his song choices. His acoustic sound is unique yet familiar. I have experienced Gordon's music for about 6 months and enjoy both his acoustic and band performances. His range of talent and sound is extreme; melodic and classic to dance and rock sound. I brought friends from Brazil to enjoy his sound and made a special request via email for a song that he had not yet performed. He learned the song in one day and performed it at the following week Applebee's night. He customizes each performance to his audience interests and requests. His friendly personality is warm and inviting. We became instant friends and I am one of his biggest fans."
