  • We are so impressed with John that we decided to share our experiences. Our son had first mentioned John to us when he was planning to propose to his girlfriend in December, 2018. He arranged for a singer/guitarist, found online, to provide background music as he "popped the question". The singer was John, who not only performed, but took the time to record and edit a beautiful video of the special occasion. Among the various selections, he also performed, "Grow Old With You", which will be their wedding song. Our son raved how fortunate he was to have discovered John and how his attention to detail ensured that it was a wonderful, personalized moment for him and his new fiance. A few weeks later both families watched John perform at a restaurant in Milford, CT. His singing and guitar playing were amazing. It was evident how passionate he is about his music. Afterwards, he sat and spoke with us and we were all struck by his sincerity and kindness. As the families starte... Read more

  • We first saw John play at another friends' wedding and I knew we HAD to have him at ours. John is so incredibly talented at singing and playing guitar and we just loved having him at our wedding. John was 100% my favorite vendor to work with because he is so sweet and worked so hard to make our wedding music everything we wanted it to be. We had John play pre-ceremony, cocktail hour, and our first dance song. My (then) fiance and I emailed John endlessly leading up to the wedding because we are perfectionists, and John was so accommodating. I felt like he was on our team, working with us so closely to make everything go just right. He never made us feel like we were "just another wedding" that he was playing at, he ACTUALLY cared. The day of the wedding, John played outside on the deck for cocktail hour even though it was the hottest day of the year, because that is what I wanted, and he did it without hesitation (Sorry John! Thanks!) John and I also collaborated on trying to surprise ... Read more

  • My husband and I hired John for our ceremony and cocktail hour because we wanted a special touch to our wedding day. From the initial communication and leading up to the wedding day, John was tremendously responsive and caring, with attention to details that we hadn't even thought about! He is not only profoundly talented, professional and experienced with weddings, he is very kind-natured and made me feel completely at ease as the big day approached. My husband and I live locally and were able to visit him during his live shows a few months before the wedding. We already knew he was an amazing performer from his website samples, but were blown away once again in person. During the ceremony, he did an amazing job with our specially selected entrance song and was easily able to improvise for timing of walking down the aisle. During cocktail hour I didn't have any specific selections for music and gave him the freedom to choose his own line-up. He played such a great/appropriate... Read more

  • John was the perfect addition to our day. The music during the ceremony create a perfect memory that will last with my husband and I forever. He played music under our vows that ensured not a dry eye left in the crowd. The cocktail hour music was perfect, and there was a seamless flow from ceremony to cocktail hour. He then ended with the PERFECT cover of Steady As We Go by DMB. He worked tirelessly to perfect the song, sent us a mp3 copy a few weeks before the wedding, AND performed it live at gig for us prior the wedding. He was super responsive and worked so well with our DJ to ensure a easy transition from live performer to DJ. Worth every penny and more! Thank you John!

  • John is AWESOME! I first heard him sing at a friends wedding and just loved his voice, the gentle feel he gave to the ceremony and the variety of songs he offers. John is extremely friendly, easy to work with and very professional. He was always available to answer my questions, give advice and make sure that every detail of our ceremony was perfect. You can tell that he truly cares about his clients and ensuring their wedding day is perfect. 7 months after my wedding, my guests are still talking about him! My only regret is not booking him for my cocktail hour as well. If you're looking for a musician, John is the best choice! Thank you for making our wedding day so special John!

  • I was looking for a unique way to class-up our wedding cocktail hour. John was recommended to me by our DJ so I checked out his website and instantly knew THIS WAS IT! I contacted John right away and he responded very quickly with all the information we needed. We had booked him over a year in advance but John kept in contact with us throughout that whole year. John is kind, mindful, professional and extremely talented! John and my DJ worked together to arrange everything for the day-of festivities and it all went so smoothly. John even sang for our first dance song; he has a huge selection of songs that he is constantly updating. The value alone makes is outstanding! John made all my dreams come true and our guests were raving about his performance. You will have wonderful experience with John, I cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed working with him!

  • Overall, John elevated our wedding! John was recommended to us from a friend. From start to finish, John was a pleasure to work with and he really delivered on our special day. All of our guests were impressed by his performance for the ceremony and the cocktail hour. He was very helpful in directly working with our venue and really made it easy for us to just enjoy our wedding day. He provides 100% of his equipment and only needs the right outlets. I got the impression that John is flexible in any situation. If the couple wants very specific music played, he will comply. If you have more of an idea, but not a specific set (like us during the cocktail hour), he'll do a great job putting together a set list.

  • John, is an amazing singer, but an even better person. I knew I needed him at my wedding, when I saw him at someone else's. I inquired about John's services before i even had a date or venue! That's how good he is!! After my date and venue were booked, John was the next vendor I booked. He was such a pleasure to work with. He learned 2 songs for our wedding. He learned Canon in D on the guitar and learned to sing Perfect by Ed Sheeran which was our first dance. Every guest at our wedding thought having John during our ceremony, all of cocktail hour and to sing our first dance was absolutely DREAMY. And it was. Everything felt like a dream and i would recommend John to anyone who wants to be " different", add a special touch, make your day feel like a dream/ movie not only for you....but for your guests as well. John- you are AMAZING! We were blessed to have you be a part of our day. Thank you x a million! :)

  • John is amazingly talented and just amazing. Through every step of the process, he made sure that we had everything we needed in order to have a smooth and memorable wedding day. John was such an integral part the entire day. We had him play for the ceremony, cocktail hour and he also did a DJ Alternative for the rest of the night. He is so talented on all accounts and went way beyond our expectations. I really can't say enough. Everyone at the wedding absolutely loved him. I highly recommend having him play at your wedding!

  • John Ciambriello recently performed at our daughter’s wedding. He was selected for his guitar skills and beautiful singing voice. He proved to be a great choice and delivered with excellence on both these fronts. We would have been more than satisfied if his musical contribution was all he delivered. We also had the misfortune of having the Justice of the Peace stuck in traffic resulting in a one hour late arrival. Without hesitation and with a generous smile, John graciously stepped forward and entertained our guests for the entire unplanned hour. He helped to save the day! We could not offer an endorsement or recommendation adequately describing how talented and compassionate John is. Be assured he is a pleasure to work with, a talented musician and singer and will deliver beyond your expectations.

  • If you are considering booking a live musician for your wedding, do yourself a favor and book John. His professionalism and talent was beyond what we could have ever expected from any vendor. We had emailed back and forth for over a year in regards to our ceremony music, cocktail hour, and first dance song...and it was easy to see that he goes the extra mile to make sure everything is executed perfectly. He even took the time to learn two new songs for us, and performed them both beautifully. Due to a bit of traffic, our ceremony started a bit later than expected, and John was kind enough to go above and beyond and kept our guests entertained during the wait. Thank you!!! - Justin & Tessa

  • John sang and played guitar at our wedding ceremony. I am SO SO HAPPY that we chose John to be part of our special day. We really wanted to incorporate live music at our wedding since our wedding reception would only allow a DJ, so having John sing and play guitar at our ceremony was the perfect choice! His music was so beautiful and I am so happy that we decided to hire him. Since our wedding was mixed religions, I wasn't sure what type of music would be appropriate to play, but John came up with numerous suggestions for us and sent us clips of his version of many of the songs so we could pick out which songs we liked best. He is a true professional - always got back to me quickly with any questions I had. There were also some songs we liked that had some lyrics that didn't quite go with a "wedding theme" and John was creative and was able to replace some of the lyrics with more appropriate words. I heard endless compliments on how awesome his voice was throughout the evening. T... Read more
