"Amazing music. Chris played the ceremony and cocktail hour for our wedding and did such a wonderful performance. We received so many compliments about his music. Truly worth hiring as Chris is very personable, professional, and has a very fun personality."
"It was a pleasure working with Chris for our wedding, from the initial inquiry, the planning process to the actual event. Our guests all noted how great the entertainment was, and Chris and Matt expertly took requests and created a fun atmosphere all night long. Thank you!"
Responsive, easy, genuine, talented
"We had Chris & Matt perform at our 9/10/22 wedding. Would do it again and again. Just perfect. The process was one of the easiest parts of planning. We drove out to see Chris play before committing, and he came and sat with my family on his breaks and took our requests. That’s Chris.. he is engaged, motivated and just an overall genuine soul. Just a bonus on top of his unmatched talent. Chris and Matt arrived nearly 4 hours early to the venue. They played exactly according to our preference sheet. And were amenable to requests. Their range of songs is vast. They catered to both the young and old guests. They are worth two or three times their price tag. Don’t even think twice, book them!"
Wonderful singer and band!
"Great experience! Extremely professional and quick to respond when needed. If your looking for a class act band and/or wedding singer definitely go with Galavant Entertainment!"
"Chris was great and we had the best wedding experience!! He really went out of his way to make sure we had an amazing wedding!!"
So fun! Fantastic personality, great music.
"So fun! Fantastic personality, great music. Chris Giakas and Galavant Entertainment made my wedding a wonderful experience by meeting with me and my husband over zoom and asking what we want and are looking for. He had a great song list and selection but was flexible and happy to get all the music we asked for when we decided to make our own custom soundtrack for most of the wedding which included hymns, 80s music, Disney music, and even music from our favorite anime. Chris is such a great entertainer and personality. He has enthusiasm and smiles and dances, along with singing and playing live music. Chris and his girlfriend learned a pretty obscure hymn within short notice so that I (the bride) could walk down the aisle to it. He has microphones and beautiful uplifting equipment that made even our rustic barn venue look even better than before. I was afraid of it not matching up with the venue's style but it really worked beautifully. Great great great experience having Galavant entertainment as a part of our special day!"
"Chris was absolutely amazing! He listened to what we wanted and the vibe of our wedding. He did an exceptional job with performing some of our favorite songs for cocktail hour. Our guest absolutely loved it! We would highly recommend him for your wedding or any special event!"
Definitely hire them!
"We hired Chris and his trio for our wedding on 06.04.22. The trio performed live music for our ceremony and cocktail hour, and then Chris and Matt stayed to DJ during the reception. They were able to set up in three seperate locations within the venue and there was never any awkward gaps in music playing from one location to another. Chris even surprised us by learning our first dance and parent dance songs to play them live with very short notice! Chris and his team are super professional, organized, and are genuinely a pleasure to work with! They really do go above and beyond. We can’t wait to see him again playing at a local restaurant!"
Galavant Entertainment was amazing!! Great talent and very personable!!!
"Chris was so spectacular! From the start, he provided me with so many options and was so kind and patient. On the day of our Wedding, Chris and his guitarist, Matthew arrived on time and gave our guests a spectacular time. I myself, am a professional wedding planner and hiring Galavant Entertainment was the best choice we made for our big day. When Chris and Matt performed the ceremony, there was not a dry eye in the building! His voice was so smooth and he played every song we asked. He sang a wide variety of songs by different artists like Frank Sinatra, Adele, and The Beatles. As an MC, he was so funny and fit in like he was part of the family. As our DJ, he kept the dance floor busy and chose the best songs. Overall, I could not give a better review and it was so worth what we paid."
"Due to Covid, we had to scale back our grand wedding plans and had a small reception in August. We only had 20 people in attendance and needed someone to sing and stay for small reception. Chris did an amazing job and sang beautifully throughout. Thank you for making this day so special."
Chris and Matt were a highlight of our wedding
"After seeing Chris perform several times, we knew we wanted him to play at our wedding. He went above and beyond. He and Matt managed to man three locations: our ceremony on the beach, our cocktail hour outside, and our reception where they played live and DJ’d. We received many compliments on their performance; one from a college music professor and musician. He was very impressed with the quality of the performance. Won’t hesitate to hire Chris again. As long as he’s playing he will be our live music guy and DJ."
Totally Recommend for Your Big Day!
"I could not speak more highly of Chris and Matt. From the initial communication/meeting to the day of, Chris was incredibly easy to work with. Their performance the day of my wedding was exactly what I wanted, and was enjoyed by all my guests. I recommend you book them now to ensure your big day entertainment is perfect!"
"We wanted a live acoustic duo, and these two hit it out of the park! Chris was also so helpful during the wedding planning process. They sounded awesome, and we’d recommend them to others for sure!"
"Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, my husband and I decided to postpone our large reception for a more intimate family ceremony on our original date. While planning, I came across Chris and was impressed with his work. I reached out and got a response almost immediately. Chris recommend we have Matt play the guitar (our intimate wedding venue did not allow amplified events). We gladly accepted not knowing what to expect but happy to have some sort of live music. Chris made planning so easy and painless. Very flexible and attentive!
Our wedding day came and we were BLOWN away by Matt! He played every song perfectly and played what we asked when we asked without cue! Our guests were absolutely amazed by him and couldn’t stop talking about him. We were so impressed and happy, that we booked both Matt and Chris for our large reception for cocktail hour and the ceremony! We can’t wait to work with them both again in December! Don’t hesitate in booking this phenomenal company, you won’t be disappointed!"
Exceeding my every expectation!
"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!"
"Working with Galavant was great! My husband and I were both crazy busy with work during the entire wedding process and Chris was so kind and flexible with us both. The sax player that they normally work with was booked, so they happily worked with another one that we found and coordinated directly with her, which was so helpful.
On the day of the wedding, Chris made sure it was stress-free and checked in on all the things we wanted to happen (and that we never followed up with lol). Chris/Galavant was such a delight to work with and I highly recommend! The mix of live ceremony/cocktail hour music, and DJ/live music during the reception was really special and allowed us to have all the songs we wanted - not just limited by a band. We're so happy with our decision to work with Chris!"
Everything I wanted
"Chris is amazing!!!!! He played everything we agreed to and everyone had such a great time. Very professional and a real showman."
"Galavant did an amazing job at our wedding! They were everything we hoped for and more! The singer had an amazing voice and they played exactly the type of music we wanted. I definitely would recommend them to anyone who wants a band that plays acoustic covers of any genre!"
Voice of an angel
"Chris sang at my wedding. With covid 19, we had to scale it back substantially and was blown away from beginning to end at how easy he made things and how professional he was after learning of the changes. Highly recommend him for any event."
“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!”
