Client Testimonials

“Kevin was amazing to work with. We planned our wedding in Boulder while living in California. Through emails and phone calls we talked about the wedding and chose our music for the ceremony and cocktail hour. He had great ideas and even learned a new song for a special moment in our ceremony. Kevin was on time, professional and our guests loved him! We highly recommend Kevin for any event.”
Catherine F.

“Kevin Karrick was great as a musician and as a professional, during the reception I was asked by majority of the guests who the ceremony musician was, and told how much they enjoyed the music to the ceremony. I have already recommended him people getting married or needing a musician.”
Joshua N.


“Kevin performed beautifully and added so much pleasure to our event. He provided a beautiful background to our Holiday Tea, the music was never over powering but a very special addition to our afternoon. His selections invited all to listen and be part of them. I would definitely hire Kevin again.

"Kevin was a pleasure to work with. ... As an artist Kevin has the ability to play very complex songs with great technique and a very very rare lightness on the guitar strings. He is also a harmonious singer. With gratitude, Francesca and Stephen."


"Kevin was a pleasure to work with. He listened, was responsive (even proactive), which gave us a lot of comfort while planning a wedding a few thousand miles away. Additionally, he is very internet savvy. Kevin's online library of work really gave us a great level of comfort and made the decision to use him pretty easy. Beyond that, he is quite talented both vocally and on the guitar. What we appreciated most about his guitar skills is how smooth his sound is. For example you don't hear shifting on the neck nor does he pick the strings harshly -- it was really great for the jazzy, bluesy, lounge-like music we were looking for at our wedding."


"I can’t tell you how great it was to have you play! Your music added so much to the atmosphere of the event, and so many folks complimented us on the music. So I’m glad to pass on the accolades, Randi"


"Every bride wants their special day to be delightfully memorable. Kevin selected and played a beautiful display of music that delighted the entire crowd. His professionalism and excellent communication throughout the wedding preparation process was seamless and stress free. Kevin went out of his way to learn and play a special song that I requested, and would sing to my husband during the event. I was extremely appreciative, and my husband was touched by the surprise. I highly recommend Kevin to play at any event. He is well rounded and a great person to work with.
All the best,
Bonni Raderman"


"Yes, you got rave reviews! Everyone loved your playing and I really appreciate the use of your microphone. The night was a complete blurr, but I think everyone had fun and the venue was a huge hit. Thanks again for everything and I will extend your well wishes to the kids. I will put a very positive review on gigmasters. I would be glad to refer you to others and will be in touch when the wedding roles around next year, we are thinking of maybe having a big band.
Happy New Year and Thanks again! Mary"
