It was an absolute pleasure to have Mr. Charles at our wedding. He arrived early to set-up and played beautifully during our ceremony and cocktail hour. He was responsive, accommodating, and professional from first contact until we shook hands after he was done. I couldn't recommend him any higher, he is a great person to have at any ceremony.

We hired Raymond Charles based on the reviews on Gigmasters. We were not disappointed. His performance really made our wedding reception a special experience. Everyone thought he was great. We knew that he sang, as well as played the steel pan, but we were surprised how well he sang and how much this added to his performance. We give him the highest recommendation.
