  • Ben played for my wedding this past weekend and I couldn't have been any happier with his services. Because of COVID I had to replan my wedding so I booked him on short notice. He responded to my inquiry right away, and even though he had another gig booked later in the day he was willing to work with me. He is very thorough and has a wide variety of music he is able to preform, but is also willing to learn songs if there is one you want but he doesn't know yet. He learned 2 new songs specifically for me and did such a great job with them. Guests were expected to begin arriving at 1:30, and he was at the ceremony location by 12:30 to make sure he had plenty of time to set up, which was great. So many of my guests complimented his performance. I would absolutely recommend Ben for your wedding

    Thanks Stephanie! I really enjoyed doing solo guitar versions of "Halo" by Beyonce and "Eight Days A Week" by the Beatles for you, I thought they were great choices. I am always happy when my clients tell me that the songs I'm playing have personal meaning to them. It makes it all the more special to be a part of.

  • Ben Sherman provided live music for my ceremony and cocktail hour. He was very organized prior to the wedding and got all the information he needed so that when it came to the wedding day, everything ran smoothly and there were no issues. The quality of music was excellent. Very pleased with his service!

    Thanks so much Anita! It was my pleasure. Your event was a real celebration of love and family, and the setting of Chesapeake Bay Manor, on the waterfront of the Chesapeake Bay, was gorgeous. I was glad to be a part of it.

  • Ben's music before and after the wedding was beautiful. I received a lot of compliments from my guest and they loved the idea of a solo guitarist. We were able to listen to his music before hiring him and he was even better in person. The selections were fantastic. My daughter said that it was like a dream. I am so very glad that we picked Ben. Thank you so much for making my daughter's day so very, very special.

  • Look no further! Ben is absolutely amazing! I asked the impossible - play a multi-part string piece as one guy with a guitar - and he NAILED IT! Ben learned several new songs just for me. He learned to play the Piano Guy's version of the Cello Song on the guitar and it made for the most beautiful ceremony processional. Because that song has many parts that are normally played by several stringed instruments and percussion, he made recordings of the percussion and used a looper to get the full effect of the song - sounding like many people, when it was just him. He was so flexible with timing, too. I used the same song for the entire processional and wanted a specific part of it for just me. He was able to work in that moment to flawlessly repeat sections of the song until I was ready to take my steps with my father. It came out beautifully. Everyone at the wedding was so impressed by his playing. Book him! You won't be disappointed!

  • My only regret is that I didn't get to hear ALL of his music (i was tucked away during the prelude)! Ben was great to work with and we (and all our guests) loved his contribution to our ceremony and cocktail hour. We chose some songs that Ben had on his site and also worked with him to play a song that was new to him for our recessional. It came out amazing! He was also professional, kind, and a GREAT acoustic guitar player. We would highly recommend him!

  • Ben was wonderful! We had him perform the music for our ceremony and pre-ceremony. He learned a few songs we requested and even sent us samples of the songs he had prepared for us. On the day of the event, he arrived early to prepare. He was prompt, easy to work with, talented, professional, and affordable. The music was excellent and the perfect fit for our event!

  • Ben was great to work with from start to finish. He was very organized and responsive. He even learned "Perfect" by Ed Sheeran at our request and he nailed it. His acoustic play was a perfect fit for our small outdoor wedding.

  • Ben was great to work with!!!!! He was very patient and willing to learn a few songs that were not already on his repertoire. He was also so flexible -- we had to move the ceremony from outdoor to indoor the week of. My guests also really enjoyed his music. His rate is so reasonable and would 100% recommend for anyone's special day. My only recommendation is to increase the number of songs in his current repertoire; however, it's already pretty big.

  • Ben Sherman is not only a very endeared and much admired, long time, local area musician, with such incredible talent, but also has become a good friend over our 3 years together as a couple - seeing him as often as we can. Being well known to both of us, long before we met, it was a treat to see Ben play for our first date that included live, local music - a great passion of ours. Once we were engaged a year later, we immediately asked that he would do us the honor of being part of our special day. Ben agreed, of course! From the start, Ben went above and beyond to make sure that every part of the prelude, ceremony, and all the way through to our first dance was exactly as we hoped it would be, including helping with a very special song we requested, with additional lyrics written by Ben in such a touching way - knowing how much they described us joining together as one on that memorable day. For those attending our wedding, including those who also knew Ben Sherman as a... Read more

  • Ben was very prompt and professional. He was great at checking in and sending me gentle reminders when I needed to send him info or a payment. I'm sad I didn't get to actually meet him in person at the wedding, but he played all the requested songs and they were beautiful!! I asked for some of my mom's favorite Beatles songs and she had tears in her eyes when she heard them. He even provided a microphone for our officiant and was able to adapt to having the wedding at a barn with no electricity. Highly recommend!
