Wedding Music Reviews


“John played the music for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour.  It was absolutely perfect!  So many of my guests approached me afterwards and said how beautiful the music was and how it really set a magical tone for the ceremony.  Two of them want to hire him for their weddings!  I highly recommend him to all couples looking for a very special wedding musician!”

“John played the music for our wedding and I cannot get over how wonderful he was and what a nice guy he is!  He was so calm and smiley and his music was like a magical dream.  I felt so at ease from the moment  I met him and he is truly a gentleman.  My husband and I received so many compliments from my guests.  Thanks, John, for making our day that much more perfect.”

“John was very sweet and professional.  He is an excellent musician and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for unusual music for their wedding.  He doesn’t play traditional wedding music, but what he played during the ceremony and cocktail hour was perfect and more beautiful than anything I could have ever imagined!”

“What John played for our ceremony was totally perfect.  I was really unsure what music I wanted and in the end just left it up to him.  I can't wait to get the video back so I can hear his beautiful music again!”

“All my parents can talk about is how beautiful the ceremony music was and how interesting his instrument was...!  John was totally professional, on time and sounded great for the cocktail hour also.  His price was lower than the other musicians we were considering.  We couldn’t have been happier!”

“John played his kora during our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour and we can't begin to describe how happy we were with him.  We found John accidentally through some internet searches and are so glad we did!  Not only is he incredibly talented and his kora playing was amazing, but he is organized, professional and knows the right questions to ask to ensure everything goes smoothly.  We would definitely recommend him!”

“John did a beautiful job providing music for our ceremony & cocktail hour.  We were so fortunate that he has a battery powered sound system so we were able to have our wedding way out in a field in just the perfect place.  We are still receiving compliments from our guests on his music.  We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for beautiful, soothing music!”

“John is a true professional. He was prompt with emails and happily answered my millions of questions.  He arrived very early so we had plenty of time to meet and get him set up.  I highly recommend hiring John!  He helped make our ceremony really, really special.”

“We were looking for something truly special and unusual for our wedding music and boy did we find it in John Hughes!   Everybody fell in love with him and his music!  You couldn’t  ask to meet a nicer guy or a better musician!”


What do the newlyweds have to say?

It was a real privilege to participate in those momentous occasions!  I look forward to discussing with you how I can make your special day even more special!!
