Personal Testimonies/ Client Feedback:

"I just wanted to send you a quick note thanking you SO MUCH for the beautiful ceremony music at our wedding. Everyone is still talking about you and how unbelievably talented you are. Greg (my husband) was so impressed and you were definitely my highlight of the WHOLE wedding. The music was unforgettable and I can't thank you enough. Again, thank you so much for making our day so special and memorable.  The next time I need a musician for an event, you will be the ONLY person I reach out for. I look forward to working with you again soon and recommending you to all of my friends!!"
- Stasha Foley

" I hired Cary to provide some music during session breaks in the main networking space for a seminar I plan annually. He did an excellent job with song selection and bringing some much-needed energy to the seminar. He was very professional to work with and was on-time and flexible with us. I would recommend Cary as a musician for corporate or association networking events and receptions."
- Crista Hassett, NAMIC

Cary was a HUGE hit at our wedding.  We couldn't have been more pleased.  His voice and guitar playing abilites are amazing.  He was professional, courteous, flexible, accomodating, and knew how to read the audience.  We had kids and adults of all ages dancing throughout.  Never an empty dance floor.  Wish we could have another party soon so Cary can come back!  Thanks so much for making our event so memorable.  (Highly recommend "Angel Dream" and "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" both acoustic covers - his renditions were better than the originals!)
- Brian and Marilen

"Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job last Friday.  Honestly you were so great and we cannot tell you how many compliments we had about your playing.  Thanks for everything."
- Erin and Travis

"Everything went perfectly.  Your timing was great, and we could hear you perfectly.  She was super surprised and thought it was amazing, those were both of her favorite songs.  She couldn't stop talking about it. I hope you don't mind if I recommend you to anyone I know who needs a performer In the Chicago area.  You were excellent, very easy to work with and very professional. Thanks again.

"Just wanted to send you a quick thank you for the wonderful job at our wedding. You were awesome! You had many, many compliments from our family and friends. Someone said they didn't realize you were up on the balcony and thought it was a recording! I know there are a few people asking for your contact information! Thanks again! I can't tell you how much we appreciated your being there. It was perfect!"
- Meagan O'Connor Roossien

"Working with you this past summer to make our Chicago and Minneapolis tour stops HUGE successes was a real pleasure, especially as I began to work with some not so wonderful performers. Thanks and I look forward to working with you again."
- April Lisonbee, Ferrazzi Greenlight

“Before Tony and I head off on our honeymoon, just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for doing such an amazing job last night and blowing all our guests (and us!) away. I can't tell you how many people told us how great you were and asked how we found you. (Hopefully you'll get some gigs out of the deal!) :0) We only wish we had been able to take a moment to chat with you and let you know in person how grateful we both were.”
- Sara Marma (Heiserman)

“You performed at my daughter’s wedding in September, everyone is still telling me how great you were!!! I love your music and your voice.”
- Darlene Galassi

“THANK YOU!  My brother [a musician] (who is a very tricky one to please) said that you were a phenomenal musician and didn't play any cheesy chords.  Whatever that means.  I just thought you sounded great..... Everyone commented on how great you sounded and it was the perfect music for the party. Looking forward to hearing you again.  You have a great gift!”
- Jen Czupek

"We recently had the pleasure of having Cary play at our party. If I could sum up his contribution to the festivities I would say – Wow! Throughout the evening people kept coming to me asking me where we had found Cary and complimenting his voice, playlist and his ability to get the crowd in a party mood. The first thing I do the next time I plan a party is to check Cary’s availability and plan the date around it. Cary, thanks for making my husband’s birthday celebration extra special! Thanks again!"
- Jorie Cummis

Cary was outstanding. He "made" our event. He showed up early, was ready to go. He was a total professional. He has a great personality that works well with all crowds. Everyone asked about him, everyone wanted to know where we found him. I would without question hire Cary again and recommend him.
- Tae H, North Barrington, IL

Cary was a great entertainer and many of my guest wanted to know how I found him. He worked very well with the crowd and took on request, even the same song several times. I would use Cary again in the future!!! -
- Frank P, Lemont, IL

Cary was a fantastic addition to our holiday party. He is very talented and knows
how to work with a diverse crowd. I highly recommend him.
- Jill C, Chicago, IL

Cary was exactly what we were looking for to bring some fun and lively entertainment to
a potentially stuffy business dinner. He got the group singing and bonding and everyone walked
away feeling like they just spent an evening with close friends - instead of the business associates they are. I'd highly recommend him to anyone and I'm definitely planning on using him in the future.
-April L, Celebration, Chicago, IL

"He was awesome, it could not have sounded or gone any better than it did. People
were dancing and having a great time, everyone was asking where I found the musician"
- Melissa and Tim Achman

"One of the best musicians we have had in the bar"
- Wrightwood Tap

- GM of Sideouts

"it was a pleasure to work with you on Saturday the 2nd at the adler planetarium.
You did a really phenomenal job and I'm definitely going to be recommending you!"
- Nick Gerber (photographer)

"Awesome job. We have received such rave reviews about you. You appealed to all ages and
set the perfect tone for our party. Grace said her guests were blown away by your talent. Thanks so much."
- Pam, Western Springs, IL

"Cary was fabulous! He was prompt, courteous, professional and exquisite in his performance.  
Guests from 18 – 70 enjoyed the music and asked me “Where/How did you find him?!”  Everyone was thoroughly impressed.  As several of our guests had been members of the high school musical groups, Cary was enthusiastic & welcoming when a few of our party-goers  wanted  to sing with him.
He performed a wonderful variety of music – engaging everyone’s taste in music. I wished he could have played for many more hours…..He was great! Cary was an absolute hit at our party. I would
recommend him highly and I certainly would hire him again for another event."
- Catherine, Cary, IL
