  • William Wilson played at our daughter's wedding reception on Saturday, May 5. His music was outstanding; our guests enjoyed it immensely and it added to the festivities of the day without being intrusive. We could talk to one another without shouting over music that was too loud. He played a nice mix of music throughout the event. Mr. Williams was very professional. He brought an excellent sound system with him, so we didn't have to worry about having one provided for him. He was on time, nicely dressed and well-mannered. He was also very prompt in responding to me in the time leading up to the event. I feel very fortunate to have chosen him for our reception entertainment. I highly recommend him.

  • William Wilson was the consummate professional. He played for a half hour leading up to the ceremony, during the ceremony, and after during cocktail hour. We sent him a list of songs to play during the ceremony and he nailed each one. His transitions from song to song were seamless. I would recommend William to anyone.

  • William played the most beautiful ceremony for our wedding! He was extremely versatile, starting with some Spanish guitar and lighter classics (Beatles, etc.) as our guests arrived and sat down. He helped us pick some great songs for the wedding party’s entrance and the bride’s processional, and had great examples on his website for us to choose from. Great communication, very easy to work with, and an even better guitarist! We had some guests arrive late and William easily went with the flow of the ceremony, playing until everyone was present and seated. He timed the songs perfectly to the various folks walking down the aisle so everything ran smoothly. He definitely succeeded in making our day feel very special, and we couldn’t be more grateful for his performance. Do yourself a favor and spring for the live music at the ceremony! It really set the mood and was much better than just having our DJ play some tracks as we walked down the aisle, etc. Couldn’t recommend William mo... Read more

  • William just played at our wedding and was amazing! I was able to send him our song choices, both modern and classic, and he executed them flawlessly. I only wish I was able to go to our cocktail hour to hear more. My guests complemented his performance and he was such an ease to work with. I hope I have another event that I can hire him. Absolute pleasure!

  • William was fabulous!! We found him via weddingwire and were so happy we hired him. He did our pre-ceremony music and ceremony music. He plays beautifully and it was just perfect for our chapel set wedding. My husband and I picked our processional/recessional music from his list of suggestions and were very happy. I can't wait for our video to come out so we can see how is all came out from the audience perspective. Thanks William!!

  • William played the processional and the cocktail hour of our wedding in January of 2014 and he did a fantastic job. He was very helpful figuring out what music fit our personalities. We met with him a few months before the wedding to discuss what songs we would like him to play. At the meeting, he played parts of a few different songs and quickly came up with a list of what he would play based on the things we liked. The big day went off perfectly and it was a relief knowing we had the music covered.

  • William was awesome!!!! There was not one thing I didn't like about him! He was very easy to talk to about the music set list and flexible in music selection, easy to coordinate his services for our wedding, had great information on his website to make our decisions easier, great great personality, very professional and well-dressed, and simply enjoyable by all of our guests at the wedding. Everyone commented on the wonderful selection William put together and how beautiful his music was played. He even arrived at the wedding early to allow enough time to setup. The ceremony had to be delayed by 30 min unfortunately (shocking at a wedding right lol) and he continued to play beautiful music while everyone was waiting. That really helped put everyone at ease and he did not even get upset or frustrated. One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was selecting William!! HUGE thanks and I highly recommend him!!!!

  • William Wilson was great! We were originally going to play our own music through an ipod, but with all the wedding planning (we were doing much of it ourselves) we opted to hire a classical guitarist about a week before the wedding. I heard William's music online and contacted him via email. We never even spoke before the day of the wedding; however, he made himself available, was always quick to respond with questions and was very professional. His music through the reception was wonderful and was the perfect backdrop for our brunch reception and I've heard a lot of compliments from our guests. He also played a few special songs from our ipod for our entrance and first dance song. I would recommend William without hesitation. He's a great musician and needs very little direction, which for a busy bride who hired him last minute, was a huge blessing! Thank you, William, for being a part of our special day!!

  • We have had William play at two of our corporate events and I would most definitely ask him to play again if we are in the area. He is professional, responsive, and most importantly, a wonderful guitar player.

  • William did a wonderful job for our wedding. There were a few things that really meant a lot to my husband and I that William provided. 1) We planned our wedding from the East Coast and William was very communicative with us and even set up a Skype session where we could meet face to face (he with his guitar) and talk over options for our wedding. 2) My husband is Spanish and having William's style was really special for us and his family. 3) William learned a special piece of music to accompany my cousin (a vocalist) during our ceremony. She was in Chicago - and they totally pulled it off having never met in person before! 4) The selection of pieces in William's repertoire is wonderful. He has a great variety of Spanish, classical and pop pieces available. 5) Finally, he played beautifully. The attendees and my husband and I all enjoyed having him as a part of our wedding.

  • William was very friendly, professional, and flexible to work with. He listened to our requests and delivered perfectly with a fantastic cellist that he recommended (shout out to my man Jeff Basile). Their music was perfect for our ceremony. I would highly recommend William!
