Didier was one of my favorite vendors during my wedding. He came very early, dressed appropriately, and of course, gave the best performance I've ever heard. I initially thought I was hearing a recording, but when I went in the room, I realized it was Didier playing! I'm very happy I went with him. He streamlined the planning process just made the whole thing stress-free. I wish I could have another major event so I can book Didier again!

Kristin was so chill to work with on our wedding. She provided the only music for our ceremony and cocktail hour and was absolutely wonderful. We asked her to play all modern songs (I mean who doesn't want to hear Beyonce on the harp???) and she made it happen. Cannot recommend her enough!

Michael was very accommodating to our needs and communicated before the event to make sure he was performing what we wanted. If I need a pianist again I won't hesitate to hire him once more.

Kenya and his band were amazing. We hired them to perform at our wedding on September 11, 2016. Kenya provided an acoustic guitar solo for our champagne reception and the rest of the band, accomanied by an incredible vocalist (Femi Andrades) joined him for the wedding reception. The music for the champagne reception was perfect and created just the right ambiance for an elegant yet romantic evening. The song choices for the reception provided the energy we were hoping for to get our guests on the dance floor. Our intent was to have the band perform a set and then have the DJ kick off the party vibe. HOWEVER, our guests were enjoying the band so much, that we just had them continue and only used the DJ to fill in for breaks. I would definitely recommend Kenya and the Kenya B Trio for your event. You will not be disappointed. The Gainers

I could not be more pleased that I found Paul for my wedding in Fairfax, CA. My only regret is that I did not have longer to meet/speak with him or hear his music! Paul was such a pleasure to work with, he was flexible and learned 2 songs for our wedding processional ("Heartbeats" by Jose Gonzales and "Here Comes the Sun"), and his communication skills were fantastic. Thank you Paul for impressing our guests on our special day!

With an enchanting repertoire of classical, Celtic, renaissance and medieval music, I have been performing professionally for over 10 years for all sorts of events. Sophisticated and elegant, the gentle music of the Celtic harp makes an unforgettable addition to your ceremony or celebration, and I will work with you to select a program of music to complement your event. I hold a degree in music and am past chairman of the board of the Bay Area Folk Harp Society. My Bay Area clients and venues have included the City of American Canyon, the City of Alameda, the Fairmont Hotel, the Claremont Hotel, Macy's, and Crocker Galleria, and I have also performed in a variety of venues in the Northwest, Britain, Germany, and China. My music can be heard on many CDs and soundtracks for film and TV, including my solo CD Princess of Flowers. I can perform solo, as the duo Margaret & Kristoph (includes vocals, 12-string guitar, octave mandolin, and flute, and in a trio with guitarist and violinist). About the Celtic Harp: The instrument Margaret performs on, the Celtic Harp, is based on the traditional British Isles instrument that predates the concert harp. In addition to classical favorites, Margaret has created a repertoire of traditional music from Ireland, Scotland, and England, as well as medieval and renaissance music from Northern Europe. In addition to formal dress, Margaret's costume options include medieval, renaissance, and Celtic folk costume.

Jim Romano is a guitarist, singer, and a songwriter who will bring the music of Hawaii to your wedding, party or special event. Be transported to the islands by the beautiful melodies and lyrics of traditional and contemporary Hawaiian "mele" (songs), and the soothing sounds of "ki ho 'alu" (Hawaiian slack-key guitar). "I love playing weddings, parties and special events, and providing ambient music for dinner or cocktail parties. There is always so much aloha at these events." "I love the rich, full sound of the guitar in open tunings. Playing in a variety of tunings transforms the guitar into a wonderfully creative solo instrument."

I am a versatile vocalist of classic pop, featuring an Elvis Presley tribute. I'm certainly not just another Elvis impersonator! Yes, I can sound amazingly close to The King, but prefer to put my own personal touch to his songs, covering nearly all of the Elvis catalog. From crooner to rocker, country to broadway, jazz to folk, blues to gospel! I also play guitar. At this present time I'm looking to form a small band. A karaoke party is also available!
