I usually don’t write reviews but I had to let the world know how awesome Dave Baker is! I recently hired Dave Baker for my wedding ceremony & cocktail hr on August 9th, 2015. I was more than pleased with the music, talent and communication leading up to the day. He was able to answer all of my questions in a timely manner and also mailed me 2 of his CD’s (which were amazing). He played exactly what we discussed and everything went so smooth. I would most definitely recommend him to anyone, you will not be disappointed! My guests had nothing but positive comments about the ceremony & cocktail hour.

Dave Baker was an absolute pro! From his website, to interview, presentation to musicianship – 5 stars all the way!

Dave Baker played our wedding and cocktail hour. He was incredibly professional, talented, and an all-around great guy. We kept in contact in the weeks leading up to the wedding just to iron out a few details but all things considered he needed very little direction and when planning a wedding I couldn’t ask for anything more. I would absolutely recommend Mr. Baker’s services to anyone looking to add that little classy touch to their wedding. Thank you, Mr. Baker.

Things were crazy before the wedding got started so I unfortunately didn’t get much time to talk to Dave at the event, but he was extremely professional and added a perfect tuch to our wedding ceremony, Dave showed up early and was ready to go, even with us starting the ceremony a few minutes early. I heard Dave rehearsing a little bit while we were taking pictures, and when the ceremony started, his guitar sounded perfect. We had a few people tell us that they loved Dave’s guitar and that it added a lot to our ceremony, I’m so happy with how it worked out and the ceremony was perfect! Thanks Dave!

Dave played beautifully and added the perfect atmosphere for the cocktail portion of our reception. Without any direction from us, as we were completely engaged with our guests, he added elegance and a festive feeling to our wedding. We were thrilled. Everything went smoothly, and we only felt badly that we never said “goodbye and thank you” to Dave directly. We highly recommend Dave.

Dave played solo acoustic guitar during our wedding ceremony and the following cocktail hour. Our ceremony was outside, but he brought his amp and sounded great. He played traditional songs as the wedding party entered and as the bride walked down the aisle. We wanted him to play the Beatles’ Here Comes the Sun for the recessional and he was happy to accommodate us. Many guests commented on how well his music complemented the cocktail hour. We highly recommend Dave

he’s a talented professional! -Ben L

Dave did a wonderful job playing at our open house for our funeral home. We allowed families and friends to visit our funeral home in a relaxed atmosphere to meet our family and we wanted an acoustic guitarist to provide upbeat and contemporary music for our guests. Guests commented how wonderful Dave played just outside the main entrance and it complimented the outdoor catering that occurred near our parking area. We cannot say enough about Dave’s professionalism and ability to play all types of music to keep our guests entertained. Thanks again Dave. Jason and Michele Oz

Dave was great from the first time I called him – back in March – to the week before the event
he always answered his phone to answer my questions and was very obliging – so I felt confident in him. His performance was very professional and perfect for our event at the Magic Gardens. Background music for a social evening. I would definitely recommend him to anyone else. We listened to his demo cd’s and they were a good representation of his performance.

Dave was very professional, courteous and accommodating. His music was just the right kind of music we wanted for our wedding during the dinner.

Just a brief note to let you know how pleased we are with your performance at the Paxon Hollow Country Club cocktail hour of our daughters wedding reception. While I would not attempt to write a technical description of your mastery of the acoustical guitar, to paraphrase a cliché – I know an accomplished artist when I hear one!! The music selection, quality of sound and skill of your performance set the tone for the night – Quality and Class. Every guest had high praise for the performance. It was truly outstanding. Thank you again and kindest regards.”

I hope you enjoyed yourself as much as we did.

Thank you again!
