Chris is an excellent musician with vast experience & knowledge. I am so grateful he was recommended for my wedding day. Chris is down to earth & easy to talk with when discussing music options and song selection. He gave me his professional opinion regarding song selection & appropriateness for each moment in the ceremony. Chris is full of creativity & provides a customized & modern touch to classic music. The sound was crisp & lively with just the right volume for the setting. We were over the moon with Chris' performance for our wedding & our guests loved him!! We highly recommend him for any event and plan to continue attending his local performances!

Working with Chris was a wonderful experience. He is professional, polite, flexible, responsive, and best of all - AMAZINGLY TALENTED!! Chris played the perfect repertoire of contemporary pop/rock/alternative hits but with his own unique twist. I have a music background, and many guests are also music lovers. We were all BLOWN AWAY by Chris' talent, range of songs/styles and overall performance. We had a house party -- Chris' sound/lights set-up was perfectly festive (not obtrusive at all!). I would highly recommend Chris for many types of parties. He was just terrific, and made my 40th birthday a very special and memorable celebration. Thanks so much!

I had Chris help me re-enact a moment I had with my Girlfriend in New Orleans for an engagement in San Diego. He was very accommodating even though I changed the area three times. He was able sing the song all while a crazy dude was on the street was applauding him (just like NOLA). He is an awesome singer and somehow he captured the moment in one of the best pictures with lighting I've seen, all with a cell phone camera. Very prompt, great communication and professional. Great job Chris and thank you so much.
