  • Austin is a talented musician and he worked with us to create a unique and very special processional for our wedding ceremony. I wanted my 12- and 10-year-old niece and nephew to accompany Austin on upright bass and cello for one song during the processional. Austin was willing and excited to practice with them at their home in Westchester several times leading up to the ceremony. The result was absolutely amazing!! I cannot thank Austin enough for helping my vision come to life, and for being a such an important part of our ceremony.

    Thanks Rachel! It was amazing playing at your ceremony with the statue of liberty right behind us (on a 70 degree day in December). Also loved working with your family on the Beatles tune :)

  • We were referred to Austin by our wedding band and he was nothing short of amazing. He learned multiple songs for us, and executed them with perfection. Austin was super flexible, responsive, and accommodating. He's an absolute gentleman and I'm very happy and thankful that we chose him for our wedding ceremony. There are so many moving parts to planning a wedding and it gets very stressful, but I didn't worry for one second about him.

  • Austin played both our ceremony and cocktail at our wedding. I cannot say enough good things about him! Austin is both talented and knowledgable about music and was able to make the perfect selections for cocktail hour. He played many of our favorite songs and took requests from my family members. My guests raved about how talented he was and having live acoustic guitar transformed our backyard wedding into a classy event. I had no idea what an amazing difference live music would make. Austin conferenced with us before our wedding to carefully match our music needs. He played traditional songs for our ceremony and then played "here comes the sun" as my surprise walk down the aisle. I loved being able to hand select my song and it was a surprise for my husband. I would highly recommend him for any formal event. He was friendly and very easy to work with.

  • Austin Charnis played at my wedding last May and honestly the live music made the night. Austin is a true professional and knows his classical music. Easy to work with and pays attention to every detail. Absolutely worth every penny; the live music really added a special touch to the ceremony as well as the cocktail hour. We still have family and friends rave about him. Absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a true classical guitarist.

    Thanks Arleen, I'm so glad you and your guests feel that way! It was a pleasure!

  • My husband and I are lucky enough to know Austin on a personal level, so we knew for a long time that we wanted Austin to play at our wedding when that time came. As soon as we asked Austin if he would want to play for us, it was nothing but extreme professionalism and guidance! We kind of knew the direction we wanted to go in, with some nontraditional songs, and he went above and beyond learning them for our ceremony, while also making some suggestions in areas we hadn't quite figured out yet. I would recommend his services to anyone looking for simple, classic and beautiful music for their wedding or any other event. He truly went above and beyond for us!

    Thanks Kelly! It was a perfect day and I'm so glad you feel that way :) It's not every day that I get asked to play not one but two Led Zeppelin songs in a wedding ceremony!

  • We had the wonderful experience of having Austin's guitar music performed at our wedding. He performed one of our favorite songs as an interlude at our wedding ceremony, as well as beautiful Brazilian guitar and jazz standards during the cocktail hour. I would highly recommend Austin Charnis as a guitarist for any party. His music provided a subtle and beautiful vibe in the background.

    Even though you're my brother, I was still nervous because it was one of my first weddings! Good thing you were happy with everything :)
