Joseph the Guitarist - Classical Guitarist Feedback

This Act's Average Star Rating

Astonishing talent, playing beautiful music - love this guy.

James Scott, Review of Steven’s concerts aboard M.S. Balmoral (2017),

Thank you so much for taking part in Penni and Ryan’s wedding you made the day very special. We will certainly think about working with you again for any family gatherings in the future and we wish you continuing success in your performances and career.

Sally-Ann Dickinson,

What a super entertainment he gave us at our Annual Supper yesterday. He gave us an hours programme ranging from classical guitar music through to the Beatles. It was much appreciated by our members to the point of how quiet they all were listening and then the applause that he received at the end of each piece. His whole performance was very professional and we would certainly recommend him.

Mags Terry, Buckinghamshire

It was fantastic to have him play at our wedding, he plays the guitar with natural style and created a wonderful relaxed atmosphere. I can't recommend him highly enough!

Hayley Stokes, Wedding, Bedfordshire,

He plays beautifully, has a very relaxed easy-going style and his varied and well chosen repertoire is wide enough to be perfect for so many social occasions. He is a truly professional musician; I can recommend him very highly.

Andrew Berhardt, Private Party, London, July 20

A really friendly and an outstandingly talented guitarist. He came down from Glasgow to fulfil his commitment to our booking and everything he played was amazing to hear and appreciated by all our guests. I'd love to hear him play in the future.

Janet Taylor, London
