John was absolutely fabulous!! He communicates well in advance, and was very accommodating and interested in entertaining and pleasing my guests--which he very much did. He is an extremely talented and accomplished musician, and doing business with him was a breeze and a pleasure. My guests and I guests thoroughly enjoyed his music. I can't wait to hire him again--I just might have to organize another party soon for the sole purpose of bringing him back. If you like what you hear of John's audio and video samples on the GigMasters website, you will not be disappointed if you hire John.

John is an excellent guitarist. He played at my wife's 60th birthday dinner. For wine and appetizers in the garden, he played jazz electric (including some Monk tunes). Dinner was inside where he switched to classical on acoustic. He was very professional and easy-going. I highly recommend him.
