  • I hired Jeff via email without ever speaking on the phone or meeting in person. There was a part of me that wondered what I was getting myself in to. Well.... Jeff was AMAZING!!!! First of all, he is the nicest guy and a pleasure to work with. He is incredibly talented, and all of our guests commented on how great he was. The classical guitar definitely set the tone of our wedding, and I just can't really say enough about him.

  • Jeff played before our ceremony, during, and after during dinner. He played the songs we selected perfectly, and put them together in a playlist that flowed beautifully. His sound, volume, presence, etc was classy and appropriate for a wedding ceremony, he really made it special. He was also extremely helpful with choosing which songs were right for certain parts of the ceremony, and since I planned the wedding myself this was crucial. Thanks Jeff!

  • First off, I was a very selective bride in terms of which vendors I chose---I wouldn't hire just anyone. With that said, hiring Jeff was an easy choice. He played at my wedding at the Mt. Hood B&B and exceeded all of my expectations. Jeff deserves way more than a 5 for each category. Not only was Jeff talented and professional, but he was also willing to learn a particular song that my fiance and I liked. Throughout the planning process, he kept in touch and arrived on time the day of the wedding. Everyone loved his music! I couldn't be happier!

  • "We had our wedding on July 31, 2010 at a private estate called Lac de' Fleur Gardens and Jeff was our soloist/guitarist at the wedding. He did a great job keeping the guests entertained as they waited and played wonderfully as I walked down the aisle. Everyone said it was beautiful music and we were totally satisfied with his song choices. Thanks for making our day a little more SPECIAL and MEMORABLE!!!" - Jacqueline

  • "After hearing him play locally a few times, we had Jeff play a mix of classics and his own music as a backdrop to our wedding in July 2010. He was professional, courteous and did an amazing job. Our guests loved it as much as we did and commented on what a wonderful job he did. Thank you Jeff!"

  • Jeff performed at our wedding last June and was absolutely wonderful. He was very accomodating, reasonable, and put a lot of effort into making sure our wedding music was the way we wanted it. He was willing to learn new requests and performed them beautifully. Not only did me and my husband enjoy the music, several guests commented on what an excellent job he did. Thank you Jeff for making my wedding day so special!!

  • I heard Jeff playing at a local wine bar last year and thought he would be perfect for our wedding. Since the beginning when we started to communicate with him, he was very communicative and open to a lot of ideas in making sure that he played the music that was most suitable for our wedding. He performed absolutely beautiful for our wedding in June, and we couldn't have been more satisfied with his professionalism, reasonablness in his rates, and mostly with his extraoirdinairy musical skills. Thank you Jeff!!

  • We hired Jeff to perform at our wedding, cocktail hour and dinner reception in April and he was absolutely amazing!!!! He played over 3 hours of music with very little break and both my husband and I were amazed at the range of music he plays, from classical, jazz, blues, romantic songs, classic oldies and his own original music. Almost every guest commented on how wonderful the music was!!! I couldn't be happier, he is a true professional and wonderful musician and would highly recommend him to anybody thinking about having an acoustic guitar player at your wedding!!

  • Jeff performed at my daughter's wedding the weekend of 4/3/2010 and was wonderful! He was open to learning two songs specifically for the wedding ceremony and played them beautifully! Jeff was professional, courteous, and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone else looking for an acoustic guitarist for their event. Our guests are still calling us with comments about his performance!

  • Jeff played last month at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. His fingerstyle guitar was just beautiful and he helped make our wedding day even more special! I was in tears as I was walking down the aisle while he played a Bach song. His music was just perfect for the occasion, he played a very diverse range of music and even knew some Beatles! Overall, I would give Jeff an A+ for his performance, professionalism, amazing talent, and for his personable and pleasant disposition. Ellen

  • Jeff performed at my wedding last summer. Not only did he play beautifully, he was very friendly and talkative with the guests, which I wasn't expecting. He took several requests during the cocktail hour and overall made the day very enjoyable for all my guests. If I had to choose a performer again, I would definately hire Jeff again.

  • As I researched artists for our party, I found that what I wanted was "fingerstyle" guitar music. I hired Jeff Cochell and he provided wonderful fingerstyle guitar during our event. I was so pleased with his music, his professionalism and his flexibility. The venue was very small and he was able to fit the music with the atmosphere. Overall I could not have been more satisfied and would certainly recommend first that if you are thinking about adding a nice ambiance to your party or event, fingerstyle guitar is a great way to go, and if you are looking for an artist who can fit that need, Jeff Cochell is the one you are looking for!
