“A wonderful solo cellist”
Alexandra is an experienced cellist who has performed many ceremonies and is currently studying music at West Chester University.
“We hired Chris to play acoustic guitar at our ceremony & cocktail hour a few months ago, and our guests are still raving about how great he was! Chris is an excellent communicator, and was always very responsive and patient answering our questions leading up to the event. The song list he provides has a nice mix of classics, modern and party favorites to choose from that got our whole group singing and dancing along. Chris is extremely professional and so talented - we cant recommend him enough and look forward to seeing him perform locally soon!”
Chris and Matt played at my wedding and it was such a pleasant experience. Chris was very professional from day one and made the entire process seamless. The duo’s performance exceeded every expectation I had and made the day so special. Chris was patient with me and never lost sight of my vision for the day. I would recommend Chris to anyone for any type of event and will most definitely use him again!
