Highly recommend Ricky the Jazz Guitarist - made our party very special. He is an extremely talented musician but more than that was polite, punctual and responded to enquiries promptly. Thank you.

Event: Wedding
Location: London
5/5

My Fiance and I first heard Ricky when he was playing in a pub on Broadway market while we were in the final throes of frantic wedding preparation. We became immediately transfixed by the beautiful music coming from Ricky's guitar - it was so hypnotic and comforting that we decided that we had to have him play at our wedding. To put our minds at ease, Ricky recorded MP3s of the songs we wanted so we could hear what they would sound like. It sounded as wonderful as we had hoped - everyone said on the day how different and moving it was to have the sound of the solo guitar gently play as I walked down the aisle. Not only is he an incredibly gifted musician, he is the epitome of professionalism. I cannot recommend him highly enough!
