  • Allen's music made my wedding ceremony feel very special! My mother made the comment that it created a calm, peaceful atmosphere before the ceremony began. Allen was also very flexible about song choice, and a gentleman to work with. I highly recommend him to any bride!

  • Allen is incredibly talented and the musicians at our event, who are more discerning than I, absolutely agreed. His music was beautiful and he is very professional and adapted to our changing needs, including changing event location! You will not be let down by his performance--highly recommended!

  • I found Allen via the web, so I was a little uneasy hiring someone that hadn't been personally referred to me. Any concerns that I had were immediately put to rest. He arrived early, was totally professional in manner and appearance, and did an absolutely wonderful job. We heard many compliments about his music. I recommend him without reservation.

  • Allen is an excellent guitarist. A true professional. His playing is beautiful. He is easy to work with; just let him know what songs, or the kind of songs you want and he'll do the rest.

  • As a Bride, there are many stressful parts in planning a wedding, and deciding on a musician along with picking other professionals for the big day can be stressful just because ultimately, you don't know how they will perform/come through on your big day. Though I had several stressful encounters with my tux rentals for the men, and rental company, Allen Didn't let me down! he was there on time, with beautiful music for our wedding. I was concerned initially because he wasn't there for the rehearsal, so we used a cd player to practice, but let me tell you, he played as if he had been there with us the night before! The music for the ceremony was BEAUTIFUL. If you are going to pick live music (which you should..trust me) this man is the way to go! If Allen is still around when we renew our vows down the road, I would use him again in a heart beat!

  • Allen did a wonderful job playing classical guitar music before, during and after our wedding ceremony. He was on time, polite and professional - and MOST IMPORTANTLY - he is a great guitarist! We had several glowing comments from our guests about the "beautiful music" being played by Allen. He did a great job and we would hire him again in a second!

  • Allen was incredibly responsive - when I first contacted him, I had reached out to at least 5 other guitarists who hadn't responded at all. Allen called me within 15 minutes of my first contact! He is an amazing guitarist and made our ceremony that much more special - he was flexible on genres (played everything from Bach to the Beatles) and accomplished in all! I am so glad he was available, he was fantastic!

  • Allen played ceremony and cocktail hour music for my June 29, 2013 wedding, and I'd highly recommend him. He was very professional and responsive from the get go, and really worked with me to find the songs i wanted. We emailed back and forth several times about options and he offered to play anything i wanted as long as he had a little lead time to learn it (if he didn't know it, but he knew pretty much everything i suggested). Guest commented on how beautiful the music was and the day really was perfect. Allen's talent, professionalism and responsiveness made him a wonderful vendor to work with. You can't go wrong!

  • Allen was a pleasure to work with for my Silcox Hut wedding at Timberline Lodge. His classical guitar provided a romantic atmosphere for my ceremony and reception. I could not have asked for a better musician to play for my wedding. Since I live in Maryland and Allen lives in Oregon all planning was done through email (he also responded quickly) and everything worked out perfectly. Allen even learned new songs for our ceremony! He was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend him to any bride.

  • Allen's music was the perfect complement to our wedding ceremony and reception. He is a total professional and was very flexible when we came to him with music requests, as well as helping us set up our audio equipment in a way that made the ceremony run seamlessly. On top of that, Allen's music was beautiful and we've received many compliments from guests who attended the wedding. I would highly recommend Allen to anybody considering his services.
