Johnny was a fantastic choice for our wedding ceremony music. My husband and I knew we did not want to go with the very traditional, stuffy, and expensive harpist/violin/trio option. We also knew we didn't want the DJ playing a premade track booming from speakers for our ceremony. He added a personal, warm, and unique element to our ceremony. He worked with my husband and I to come up with an amazing playlist, and even learned new songs for us! He played Somewhere Over the Rainbow when our small nieces and nephews walked down the aisle and everyone was in tears! For those of you looking for a unique music option to really add a personal touch- definitely book Johnny!

As a GigMasters employee, I've had the pleasure of working with many great vendors and performers, but working with Johnny on my surprise proposal was the best experience I've had. He responded immediately to my request and even cut a quick demo of a song I had specially requested. I knew right away he was the right person to make my proposal even more special. He was incredibly flexible and helpful when coordinating a surprise in a busy location, and when the moment finally came he was just incredible. His music added so much to the experience, and I would recommend him without hesitation for any event or occasion! Thank you, Johnny!

Johnny was amazing! Such talent! From the moment we contacted him and throughout the experience it was always pleasant, professional and courteous. He learned new songs that were requested by my daughter for the wedding. He also played a couple of Disney tunes on piano during our cocktail hour as he noted some "fairy tail, Disney" moments during the ceremony. We can't thank him enough for creating the ambiance we were looking for. All I can say to someone thinking about hiring him is please do, you won't be sorry!!
