  • Amazing for our intimate wedding

    First off we planned our wedding in about two weeks, and when we originally began we hadn’t thought twice about having music until my husbands mother gave us the suggestion. We are super low key people and were unsure if a musician would fit the vibe, but when we found Austin we knew right away he was the perfect addition to our little elopement / micro wedding. He was so kind and flexible and easy to reach. He made us so comfortable. We got to choose our own set of songs and when they would be played, and let me tell you it made the day even more magical. Hearing Moon River while we read our vows to each other absolutely melted my heart and made me cry even harder than I already was! Thank you l, Austin, for being a part of our day. I hope we can work with you again one day!!

    Austin was incredible right from the start. He is extremely responsive which made for stress free weeks leading up to the event. We had him play our cocktail hour, where we received so many compliments for how well he played, his music selection, etc. We even had guests in he middle of the wedding ask for his contact information so they could potentially use him for other events. I cannot recommend him enough!!

    Austin is a great addition to any event! He always shows up on time, prepared and with a smile on. Hiring a live musician is hands-down one of the best ways to personalize your wedding day. Austin knows a wide array of songs, and really helps to showcase the couple's interests and musical taste. He creates a lovely tone and ambiance. I'm always excited when I find out a couple has hired Austin!

    I absolutely LOVED working with Austin! He played my ceremony and my cocktail hour. Having him there completely elevated the event. My guests had nothing but nice things to say about Austin. He was also so easy to work with, super nice, and super communicative throughout the process. 10/10, thank you Austin for playing at our wedding!
