“I highly recommend John and his band.  John was responsive to our needs and put together a great mix of music and singing for our event. Organized and attentive and an overall compliment to our fundraising dinner. I and others from the event would definitely recommend him and hire him again!”   Pat Hedden (Los Altos Greentown) 

“John and his band were really outstanding for my outdoor wedding picnic event. John was very professional in his communication and timely, and the music was great.  He really captured our vision for a bluegrass/country feel in the redwoods. We were worried about the sound level, but John was perfect. We got so many compliments on the music and really enjoyed having John and his band setting the tone for our special day. John’s a great guy, and wonderful musician. What else could you want? I highly recommend.”    Genevieve Moscowitz

"You sounded amazing!  I know the folks in the first couple of rows tailgating really enjoyed the music as well.  Several have made the comment that the change in music from the week before was REALLY NICE (the week before was an 80’s rock band).   Thank you so much…we’ll definitely be calling you in the future! "  Cheryl Boyes (Director of Community Relations & Special Events, Sacramento State Athletics)

“I heard John play at the Freight & Salvage in Berkeley, and liked it so much, I hired him and his band to play for a Board of Trustees dinner.   First rate music and performance!!”    Bill Fuller (President, The Asia Foundation)
