Conor is incredibly talented! His voice is just something else!! He played beautiful music at our ceremony that got all of our guests talking. Afterwards, he played an hour long set for our wedding breakfast. We felt like slipping away from our guests (and photographers) multiple times to just enjoy his beautiful music on our wedding day. Would love to hear him play everything all over again! Thank you Conor!! Please do not hesitate to book Conor for your special occasion. His voice sounds even better in person than on his amazing videos!!
