Vince came to our home wedding early. He played some very impressive jazz guitar early, love songs for the ceremony and popular song for the reception. The preacher was 45 minutes late and Vince remained cool as ever. He said " no problem" and kept playing white the caterer served beverages. I would hire him again for any event! He has the voice of an angel.

Vince is amazing. He responds extremely quickly and is easy to work with. We had a rehearsal dinner and he kept the vibe going and was personable with our guest. Our guest loved the music, it was exactly what we were looking for. He can play a variety of music and has a voice that puts you at ease. I would highly recommend him!

Vince Rivers played at my mom's wedding reception and was a huge hit!! The setting was very private and low key at my brother's house. Vince was very polite and professional and went right to work. Showed up about an hour before guest arrived to do sound checks and set up. He pick all the right music for the group and had the kids grooving on the dance floor! I highly recommend Vince for anyone's party and I can guaranty I will use him again!
