Reviews of Ed - Solo Guitarist

    5/5

    Ed was punctual, polite and very approachable. Our guests loved listening to him play and chatting to him. He has a wonderful way with people, putting them at ease and enabling them to enjoy the music. Ed, it was a pleasure.


    5/5

    Many thanks for making our special day go so well. You certainly went "the extra mile" during the ceremony filling in the 20 minutes. Thanks for playing our entry and exit music too. We had some really complimentary comments about your music and the fact it was nice to have some classical stuff in the background instead of "Disco".


    5/5

    We asked Ed to play at our wedding in August 2012. Ed was very accommodating, friendly and really easy to organise things with. He made some great suggestions as to the music we might like which we were really keen to take advantage of. On the day of the wedding, Ed arrived in plenty of time, and set up with no fuss - which was really appreciated. The music he played was beautiful and set the scene wonderfully. Thanks Ed so much for helping to make the day so special.
