We hired Quinn to play as a solo guitarist for our small wedding ceremony. We had decided rather short-notice (1 month prior) that we wanted live music for the ceremony and had some difficulty finding a guitarist who could play finger-style. Quinn was very accommodating in working to get a special song request arranged for us and the songs sounded great! We chose several songs from Quinn's list of previously arranged pieces, as well as our one special request. We were impressed at the quality of music--only wished time at our venue had allowed for a little more music time!

We hired the Michael Benson Band to play at our wedding at Roche Harbor Resort on San Juan Island. Since we were bringing the band all the way over to the island, we decided to put them to work throughout the entire event! Michael and one bandmate performed a guitar/sax duo for our Ceremony, then Michael played some keyboard music for the Cocktail Hour, and then the whole 5-piece band played for our four hour Reception. Michael was an absolute pleasure to work with both before and during the event! They are all excellent musicians and we loved the music throughout the event. Michael did a fantastic job of being the "MC" during the reception and made sure that it kept its flow throughout the night! We would not hesitate to hire them again! Definitely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding night!

I have been playing music all my life, mostly with people better at it than myself. That is what makes musicians better. Being self-taught, I aim to bring out each student's unique voice, while still giving them the tools to communicate through music. Theory, technique, feel, and creativity are the building blocks to make practicing musicians good, and great musicians better. Also available for performances-solo, duo, full band!
