"I was seeking a classical guitarist for an intimate, indoor wedding reception and found Brad through a local search. After reading his impressive bio and watching a performance online, I had no doubt in knowing he was the one. Brad's professionalism is exceptional from beginning to end. We had a friendly exchange of details via email about the event and he quoted a very reasonable price for 3 hours of performing. When I arrived at the reception, he was already set up and playing beautifully as guests arrived. Brad's extensive knowledge, skill and repertoire go beyond what I could have ever imagined. He has memorized hours and hours of pieces, experty played with a deep emotional sensitivity unlike any performer I have heard. His study and training with Eliot Fisk, the last student of Andres Segovia, completely sets him apart. From Bach to Bohemian Rhapsody, Brad's artistry is sublime. Our guests were completely blown away. The last piece he played literally had me in tears. It is incredible that we can hire Brad and have him play for us; he should be world-renowned. Until then, I will be hiring Brad for all events as well as recommending him wholeheartedly to anyone in need of a master guitarist. Plus he gave me a mug, CD and wine tote so count me in as a forever fan!"
