Kevin was great, he played for 2x 45 minute slots at our wedding. His communication was great in the weeks leading up to the wedding and his song choice was perfect. Thank you.

Two years ago, this lovely couple played at my wedding more specifically played my wife walking down the aisle. They are absolutely professional & earned positive reviews from both sets of families on the day. Honestly I couldn’t recommend Kevin highly enough. He takes pride in his work and you will not be disappointed in booking him at your wedding or event.
