Don was a wonderful addition to our ceremony and cocktail hour, providing the perfect ambiance for our late fall wedding. He was flexible throughout the planning process and was always incredibly responsive to our requests. We are so thankful to have had him as part of our day!
~ Kate B. 11/14/20 Tamworth, NH
Don was great! We gave him a bit of a unique request to play our ceremony processional accompanied by my sister on viola. Then he played a custom request for our recessional. He was professional, flexible and accommodating throughout the entire planning process. His music was beautiful and really set the right tone for our wedding – warm and casually elegant. I highly recommend Don for anyone looking to have guitar for their ceremony. Thank you, Don!
~ Jackie B. FROM Wolfboro, NH 9/21/2019
My wife and I hired Don for our wedding on 9/14 at the Publick House in Sturbridge, MA. Working with Don was easy – we booked through gigmasters and had a phone call to work out details. Don coordinated with our DJ to ensure the sound would be perfect for both the ceremony and cocktail hour. As for the music – we asked Don to play some Celtic music and some of his originals (check them out!) before the ceremony, a couple specific pieces during the ceremony, and some pop covers during the cocktail hour. The guests were very pleased with Don’s song choices and his skillful renditions. My only regret is that I was too busy to thank him more profusely in person!
~ John S, Sturbridge, MA 9/14/19
Don is an amazing musician and played wonderfully at our wedding. He spent a considerable amount of time with us prior to the wedding helping us select music that was suited to our preferences and the event. He showed up on time, looked sharp and connected with our officiant to make sure that he understood his portions on of the ceremony. A consummate professional and top-notice wedding guitarist.
~ Kurt C, Beverly, MA 8/31/19
Beautiful guitar music – Don played guitar for our outdoor ceremony. He was super easy to work with and we appreciated all of his experience doing weddings. We met him at his home in NH and he shared and played a variety of different options for our ceremony, in particular, giving us ideas for the recessional. I only wish we got to hear more of him since we were out of sight for most of the prelude! Thank you!
~ Heidi S. Beverly MA 8/31/19
Don did a great job at our event. He was right on time, played great music and was very accomodating.
~ Frank C. Manchester, NH 8/28/19
Don was very communicative, learned a special song just for our wedding, and provided the beautiful entertainment for our guests. He was very flexible and came early to set up and meet us. I would highly recommend him!
~ Katherine D. Hampton, NH 8/10/19
Don was an absolutely joy to work with. He was professional and very talented. We received a lot of positive feedback and reaction to having him play during cocktail hour. Plus, it was so great that he came up to personally congratulate the Bride and Groom before he left. Thank you so much, Don! We loved having you be part of our day.
– Jessica & Colter -Kacey W, Beverly, MA 6/22/2019
WOW! Where to begin… Don made the craziness of wedding planning and ceremony music such a breeze. We had him play the music for our wedding ceremony and he did an amazing job! Very talented! Don was very responsive and quick to get back to us on any questions we had. We stuck to pop music for the ceremony and it was everything we hoped for. He was early to come set up and get situated. Professional appearance and very friendly to work with. We had many compliments from our guests. I would not hesitate to have him perform again, and I highly recommend you book him for your event! Thank you so much Don for an amazing performance!
-Justin C, Atkinson, NH 5/25/19
Don was fantastic from start to finish. From initial coordination of the event, through the performance. He played wonderfully in the variety of styles that were requested, and guests repeatedly made it a point to mention how wonderful the music was. I will absolutely be working again with Don in the future.
-Scott A. – NASHUA, NH 10/25/2018
He arrived early to ensure everything was perfect. He was very cognizant of sound quality and volume. Had an excellent repertoire, blended very well with the event. Guests loved him. I will definitely use him again.
-Allison M – Manchester, NH 10/7/18
Don was absolutely fantastic. Very prompt with communication, very appropriate pricing for the services and time, and very professional! He arrived early and I saw him at one point helping my florist! He blended in perfectly but stuck out in all the right ways. We used Don for our ceremony and cocktail hour and I wouldn’t have changed a thing! Highly recommend!
-Krissi C. – LUDLOW, VT 9/29/2018
The experience in finding, connecting and communicating with Don Sanni through GigMasters was an easy and professional experience. Don had been referred to us by friends and he delivered at a very high level. So easy to work with, offered great suggestions and played so beautifully! Thank you so much for contributing so perfectly to our perfect wedding day!! It was a pleasure.
-Carole B. – BRISTOL, NH 9/2/2018
Don was the perfect soloist choice for our daughter’s wedding. He took the time to work out the details of all the songs to be played throughout the ceremony with our daughter and his rendition of Elvis Presley’s “I cant help falling in love with you” for the processional was exquisite.
He was here early to set up in the two locations he was asked to play before and after the ceremony during the cocktail hour. Many of our guests commented about how much the loved his playing, including the reception musicians! Nice work Don and I’m only sorry we didn’t have more time to have you play!
-Phil T. – Millville, MA 8/26/18
Booking Don for our small wedding last Saturday was one of the best decisions we had made. We booked him two weeks before the wedding, exchanged a bunch of emails sorting out song choices and he showed up and turned our backyard wedding into a beautiful song filled classy affair. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and we would recommend him to anyone.
-Jennifer P. – NEWPORT, RI 8/18/2018
Don performed during the ceremony and cocktail hour at my wedding. Not only was he a great performer, he was very patient and accommodating as we moved things inside and then back outside due to an unexpected rain storm! He learned two songs for our ceremony that really made it feel personal + special. All our guests enjoyed his music and we got many comments from guests on how talented he was. If you’re looking for a great guitarist, we would highly recommend him!
-Stephanie L. – BURLINGTON, VT 8/4/2018
Don is the Best!
Do not hesitate to hire this very professional and talented musician. Don was helpful from the first phone call through the day of our ceremony. So much so that when the 100° weather unexpectedly moved our outdoor cocktail hour to inside, he made the transition seamlessly. His guitar playing was sweetness to my ears. If the need arises again, Don will be my first choice. Thank you, Don, for contributing to the beauty of our special wedding day. It’s too soon for pictures yet.
~Carol S.- wedding, Bedford NH. on July 1, 2018
We cannot begin to tell you how wonderful Don was from beginning to end. We needed someone at the last minute for our daughters wedding and we were so fortunate that he was available! It was not only his professionalism but his guitar playing was beautiful. He added the perfect touch to a perfect day! Thank you so much Don!!
~Mary Ann M. – IPSWICH, MA ON 6/9/2018
We had Don come to the Wellesley College Club to play for our wedding ceremony and following cocktail hour. We could not have been happier. Don is prompt, professional and a very talented guitar player. Once he knew what kind of ceremony we were interested in he had some fabulous recommendations for accompaniment. Thank you Don for helping to make our day so special.
~Brian M. – WELLESLEY HILLS, MA ON 5/20/2018
Don was professional and very talented. He took the time to make sure everything was all set for my daughter’s wedding. He played beautifully and added a special touch to a special day. I would highly recommend Don!
~Michele G, Hudson, NH 12/30/17
Don was an absolute pleasure to work with! His music and professionalism were excellent and I would recommend to anyone planning an event.
~David B. Marlborough, MA 11/9/17
Don was great to work with for our wedding day ceremony music. We had an outdoor wedding with no power available on site and he was able to bring everything and power up with his own equipment and even provided the Mic for our officiant as well which was tremendously helpful! He is an incredibly talented musician and was so easy to work with. We made sure he had a clear understanding of what we wanted for music and it sounded beautiful! He arrived early to make sure he was all set up for the event which I appreciated. Don also did a phone meeting with me a couple times to make sure he had every thing spot on. Thanks for the beautiful performance Don!
~Andrea M. Jackson, NH 10/28/17
Great Guitarist – Don was wonderful. He was prepared and arrived early. He was great with communicating with me and making sure he had all the right details. He is extremely talented and I would recommend him to anyone.
~Kerry S. Topsfield, MA 10/21/17
Exceptional performance from a real pro! Don made our event special by sharing his talents with us. Our group thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated Don and his music. The care and preparation was obvious and greatly appreciated.
~Bill G. Manchester, VT 10/3/17
A true professional! Arrived early and ready to play even in the rain storm that surprised us all, and was willing to roll with the environmental challenges. Beautiful playing, excellent song selection, perfect volume for both the ceremony and cocktail hour. We would wholeheartedly recommend him!
~Hannah B, Portsmouth, NH 9/15/17
Beautiful music, Don is a talented guitarist. Everyone complimented us on Don’s performance. Very professional.
~Jeanne S. Gloucester MA 8/26/17
Don is a true pro. Don helped us through a very difficult time by playing at our sons memorial service. He was thoughtful, kind and professional and played flawlessly. He was set up by the time we arrived and coordinated with our pastor.
~Glenn M. Townsend, MA 8/20/17
Thank You Don for playing such beautiful music at my ceremony and cocktail hour!! My husband said the music sounded great! Everything ran on time, and it helped us give our guests the experience we wanted them to have! You were so patient with me through email and song selection and so easy going when it came time to play on a rainy day!! Everything you did was very much appreciated!! Thank you again!
~Kristen W. Danvers, MA on 8/18/2017
Well prepared and sounded great. Don showed up early, as we saw him getting set up during our first look photos. You can tell Don holds high standards for himself and he has for a while. His playing is extremely refined, and he takes guitar tones very seriously. We received some nice compliments from our guests on his guitar playing. Lastly, we found each other after the ceremony and he wanted to make sure we were happy with his performance. We certainly were. Very professional!
~Rob G. Spencer, MA 8/13/17
Don was perfect! Quality guitarist, flexible with the songs we selected (learned a new song for our wedding, and rocked it!), reasonably priced, was punctual and put-together. I deeply appreciate his contribution to our wedding, and would hire him again in a heartbeat.
~ Danny B, Beverly, MA on 5/19/2017Don was easy to work with, very responsible and professional, and was a great part of our wedding day!
~ Carla M, Chittenden, VT on 7/1/2017I knew Don was going to be great based on the extensive and detail oriented communications we had before the wedding. But the way he was able to adjust to some last minute changes, read our “crowd” of guests and adjust his playlist perfectly to our delight was magnificent. Another thing I noticed is that he seemed to understand the stress we were under prior to the event, and communicated in a way that reassured us, while still getting the right info back and forth. Oh, and even though I didn’t think there was a need for sound system, he brought one anyway and set up just the right equipment to reach the right volume levels for each setting (ceremony and reception). A very skilled player, but also a great gentleman and a pleasure to work with. Good with Classical and also light pop/rock –Highly recommended solo guitarist!
~ Michael M – Winthrop, MA 12/10/2016
Don responded to my quote request quickly, showed up on time, etc. Guests loved his music selection. Top quality, talented musician.
~ Catherine M – West Newbury, MA 12/9/2016
Don was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Our wedding was in Maine, the bride and groom in Atlanta and we parent’s in RI! Don was accommodating consulting with our daughter and son-in-law over the phone regarding music choice and took it upon himself to learn new music if necessary. He played beautifully even with a chilly outdoor ceremony! We had many compliments about the music and renditions . Don responded to all emails immediately and arrived at the service 2 hours early to set up. I had no worries and he delivered. Thanks Don.
~ Nancy C. – Wells, ME 10/15/2016
Amazing! We booked Don for our wedding on 4/8/16. He responded promptly and was a breeze to work with. I was a little hesitant that he didn’t know a song I wanted specifically played for the recessional (Queens ‘You’re My Best Friend’) but since he owns his own music school I put my faith in him and was not disappointed! He learned the song in two days! I didn’t know what song to choose for when the bridesmaids walked in, so Don suggested “I’ll Be There” by Michael Jackson and I went for it as I trusted his judgement. It made me cry while we were lined up ready to walk up the aisle – beautiful! Do not hesitate to book Don and check out the song clips on his website!
~Kirsten A. – Harvard, MA 4/8/2016
On a scale of 1 to 10 Don was a 12. Everyone at my son’s rehearsal dinner loved the music. Don is an extremely talented musician and I feel very fortunate that he played for us. He made the party an event that we will always remember. I am now trying to come up with an idea for a future party so that I can listen to him again. He really is an amazing artist.
~Marla S. FROM SALEM, NH ON 3/11/2016
Don was great. He played at our wedding ceremony. He worked on his own version of songs for us and catered to all of our requests. He was on time, well-prepared, and great with communication. Definitely recommend.
~ Jessica P. – Atkinson, NH 10/1/2016
Don performed at our wedding reception at the Bedford Village Inn on Nov.10th, 2012 and did an outstanding job. I would highly recommend Don and his fantastic guitar playing talent to anyone Thank you Don for helping to make our wedding day wonderful and memorable for both us and our guests!”
– David F. Wedding – Bedford, NH 11/10/12
Don was great. He communicated throughout the time frame of the planning of the wedding. Guests were very impressed with his talent and professionalism. Would highly recommend him. Thank you so much for making my daughter and son-in-laws day so special.
-Susan C. Wedding – Chittenden, VT 10/14/2012
When the officiant arrived an hour late, this pro, Don, ad-lib’d and pulled songs out of his pocket to keep the guests at ease…eminently professional and very gracious and supportive before and after the ceremony. He also spent more than a half our on the phone with us a few weeks before the special day going over songs (playing them for us, making suggestions on what would be good and what order might be nice — and he was perfectly flexible when we decided to go with choices that he did not suggest…in other words he listened to our needs and help us create the soundscape we wanted for our wedding). You would be doing yourself a favor to have him on your ‘team.’
-Joshua C. – Wedding, Hancock, NH 10/13/2012
I could not be happier with my experienec with Don on my wedding day. My husband and I will always smile wide when we hear Here Comes The Sun (as I was walking down the aisle) Best moment, hands down! Thanks, Don, for helping create my favorite memory from that day!!
-Jessica R, 9/17/2011, Wedding Ceremony, Marblehead, MA
We recently had Don play the cocktail hour music at our wedding. From start to finish he was great to work with. Our guests loved the added touch of live music and raved about Don’s playing. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for great live music.
-Kate M. Wedding – Moultonborough NH, 9/8/12
It was an absolute pleasure working with Don. He is an excellent guitarist, he gave us ideas of a number of songs to play at each stage of our wedding, and he even learned a new song for us. Several of our guests remarked afterwards about Don’s beautiful playing. On top of all that, Don provided his own sound amplification for our outdoor wedding and for our officiant. Thank you, Don, for making our day incredibly special. We highly recommend Don for your event.
-Jessica M. 9/2/12 Wedding Ceremony, Thetford, VT
Don Sanni played the acoustic guitar at our outdoor wedding ceremony. He was very professional and even learned a new song that I wanted to walk down the aisle to. He has an extensive playlist to choose from and added so much to the ceremony. He was reasonably priced and played beautiful music for our guests to be seated to and throughout the ceremony and receiving line. His profile on gigmasters.com has samples of his music to listen to which was very helpful in choosing our ceremony musician. I would definitely recommend Don to anyone in need of a ceremony musician. Thanks Don!
-Kim W. 7/14/12 Wedding Ceremony, Plymouth, NH
Don was very easy to work with and very professional, not to mention very talented. Don played at our out door wedding ceremony and it was great. The music was perfect for the feeling of the day.
-Nicole T, 6/30/2012, Wedding Ceremony, Gloucester, MA
Don played our wedding in Boston May 26th. He was very prompt and dressed the part. He was extremely accommodating in our song selections and wonderful and easy to work with. We highly recommend for those bride and grooms wanting an acoustic guitarist for their ceremony/cocktail hour which we did. It added the perfect touch to our wedding!
-Courtney G, 5/26/2012, Wedding Ceremony, Boston, MA
We had a wonderful experience with Don! He was extremely professional, both the day of and in the time leading up to the wedding, and he is very talented… All of the songs he performed were beautiful! We’d recommend him to anyone.
-Rebecca D, 10/22/2011, Wedding Ceremony, Yarmouth, ME
Don was one of our most worry-free vendors that we worked with for our wedding day. We collaborated on the song list for the ceremony and he was willing to learn one of our favorite songs for the postlude – brought tears to my eyes to hear it played live as we started the receiving line! He was professional, concise, and direct in all of his communications which is refreshing considering how much back-and-forth it takes to plan such a big event! Thank you, Don, for being such a lovely part of our wedding.
-Kate F, 9/24/2011, Wedding Ceremony, Huntington, VT
Don was excellent! He has a great repertoire, is very professional and performed extremely well. I highly recommend him!
-Lindsey L, 8/6/2011, Wedding Ceremony, Bolton, MA
Don was an exceptional and memorable part of our big day. He is incredibly talented, accomodating, and professional. There is no question that we would recommend him to our friends.
-Kevin Y, 7/23/2011, Wedding Ceremony, Moultonborough, NH
Don Sanni was great! All the guests commented on what a good job he did. I would highly recommend him.
-Adele A, 6/11/2011, Wedding Ceremony, W Brookfield, MA
I couldn’t be more pleased with the beautiful music that Don provided for our wedding. He was also very easy to communicate with. I would hire him again without hesitation. Thanks, Don!
-Terrie M, 6/5/2011, Wedding Ceremony, Portsmouth, NH
Don Sanni played acoustic guitar as guests arrived and also set the tone for the ceremony and following cocktail hour. He’s great, I’d hire him in a heartbeat.
-Kat, Kingdom Wedding Photography, 6/4/11, Waterbury, VT
Thank you so much for providing such wonderful music on our big day – we received many compliments from our guests. Just beautiful. We also appreciated your kind & professional demeanor. Your music enhanced the atmosphere more than we could have expected and we’re very grateful for that.
-Darren P, 6/4/2011, Wedding, Waterbury, VT
Don played guitar for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour in Grafton, Vermont. He is a great talent and his musical selection was just what we were looking for. I appreciated him meeting us beforehand to walk us through some song choices. I’d highly recommend him for his talent and for just being a genuinely nice guy!
-Erin B, 5/14/2011, Wedding Ceremony, Grafton, VT
Don Sanni is a true musician and professional. The music selection was outstanding and he was a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend! Charlotte and Russ
-Charlotte T, 8/12/2010, Wedding Ceremony, Brooklin, ME
Don was a pleasure to work with I would definitely recommend him to anyone!! Not only was he professional and on time on the day of the wedding, but he was willing to meet with us or play music over the phone for us, if we were unsure of what music we wanted to select.
-Jennifer P, 8/20/2010, Wedding Ceremony, Newport, RI
Don played guitar for our wedding ceremony and it was great to work with him. He was very accommodating to our requests and brought great presence to the music and the ceremony. I appreciated his professionalism and willingness to learn some new songs. I recommend Don without reservation.
-Julianne M, 7/17/2010, Wedding Ceremony, Barre, MA
Don was an asset to the ceremony. Many guests commented on how good he was. He was right on cue and did stay to play some songs after while we were taking pics so I could enjoy it too. I appreciate his professionalism and talent. I recommend him to everyone.. It was on of the easiest and most enjoyable parts of planning the wedding. Thanks again Don!!
-Jayme G, 7/10/2010, Wedding Ceremony, Moultonboro, NH
Don helped make our wedding a success. He played beautifully and was easy to work with. It’s always a gamble when you hire someone on-line, but we felt we found a gem. I would definitely recommend him!
-Elana R, 7/4/2010, Wedding Ceremony, West Fairlee, VT
Don was amazing! He went above and beyond anything we could have expected for our wedding. Don even stayed an extra hour because our guests enjoyed the music so much!
-Kim T, 6/26/2010, Wedding, Keene, NH
Don was terrific! I requested a specific song that he learned to play, and he called before the event so I could I hear it over the phone to make sure it was right. He showed up on time, was ready for all possible circumstances, and he played beautifully! My guests loved the music, and he was so easy to work with. Made my wedding music a worry-free and wonderful experience! I highly recommend Don to anyone.
-Amy K, 5/30/2010, Wedding & Cocktail Hour, Stowe, VT
Mr. Sanni is a very accomplished musician. We appreciated the fact that he is talented enough that he did not dominate the ceremony, but rather enhanced the total experience. We would recommend him without reservations.
-Rosalie W, 5/29/10, Wedding, Kennebunkport, ME
Don was great! He arrived and set up well in advance of the start of our (wedding) ceremony, was well organized, and he played a beautiful version of “here comes the sun” during our recession. He was flexible with us and just a very nice guy to work with. We were very fortunate to be able to book him with such little advance notice (since our previously arranged musician cancelled on us) and he was very helpful assisting to us at picking some tasteful songs to play at our ceremony. We also liked that he has a nice website that allowed us to look over of wide variety of songs that we could choose from.
-John D, 5/22/10, Weddingn Ceremony, Jackson, NH
We couldn’t have asked for a better musician for our ceremony! Don was very accomodating. We requested a song that he was not familiar with and within a couple months, he had it down and it was perfect! We were from out of town, and he made every effort to stay in contact with us over email and by phone. Our ceremony was outside and his acoustic performance fit our ceremony perfectly! I would definitely recommend him for any wedding or event… Holly & Sarah
-Holly B, 5/13/2010, Wedding Ceremony, Chittenden, VT
Thank you so much for a lovely experience. You were very flexible with the threat of rain (in fact, the rain was still letting up when you arrived, I believe…)and with the late start of the ceremony. We thoroughly enjoyed your playing, as did our guests. You had excellent communication with us from the very beginning when we booked your services up through the wedding itself. We appreciate your high level of professionalism. Best of all, your playing was the perfect complement to the ceremony and the setting. Thanks again!
-Karen T, 5/8/2010, Wedding Ceremony, Florence, MA
Don Sanni is amazing! Months before our wedding, he met with us and helped us determine a song list for the ceremony and cocktail hour. He listened and truly worked with us to give us the tone that we were looking for. While he had hundreds of songs to choose from, he didn’t limit himself to only playing those tunes. In fact, when we mentioned to him that we wanted to use Stevie Wonder’s “For Once in My Life” as a recessional, he learned the song, adapted it to fit his acoustic style of playing, and he worked it seamlessly into our service. We were impressed with his musicianship as well as his professionalism, and we highly recommend his services.
-Kathryn N, 6/20/2009, Wedding, Plymouth, MA
I hired Don for a surprise 50th birthday party for my wife. We had both friends and family for a house party of 40-50 people. Don was terrific in several ways. He was very professional in setting up our arrangements. He was very timely and accommodating in his arrival time making sure he was completely set up and ready to go for what was a surprise party. In addition he was very fair and flexible to accommodate us when we asked him to play beyond the time we originally expected to end (as a side note – we asked him to play longer than we originally booked him for because his music was well played, well received, and added a lot to the atmosphere of the party). Don played both as the main entertainment for a period during the evening, and also in the back ground for much of the night. He played both roles well. The best testimony I could give him is that we would hire him again without reservation.
–Bob N. Bow, NH 3-15-09
Don’s performance at our wedding was amazing. He played at both our ceremony and cocktail hour. He is an incredibly talented musician. Many of our guests commented on their love of his performance and talent. Don arranged a meeting prior to our event and played samples of songs for us. He was ready and willing to learn any new song we wanted. Don allowed us to chose songs that defined us as a couple making our wedding unique to us. We could not have been happier with Don’s performance and would recommend him to our closest friends and family. Thank you Don
-Jessica C, 11/28/2009, Meredith, NH
Don was terrific! He played in my house for a ladies tea. His music complimented the event without being over powering. Everyone loved his music and enjoyed his personality. I would hire Don again without question. Many thanks Don!
-Patricia S, 10/17/2009, Private Party, Newton, MA
Don did a great job. He was easy to work with and spent time helping put together the pieces to best fit the wedding ceremony and setting. It’s obvious that he’s been doing this for a while and his music was well done and fit perfectly with the ambiance we wanted to set.
-Kata R, , 10/11/2009, Rindge, NH
Don was perfect for our wedding! He was very professional. Don invited us to meet him a few weeks before the wedding to pick out songs. He emailed me the week before to confirm the date, time, location, and song order. He arrived very early on our wedding day to set up. The guests said he was excellent! I knew I could count on Don during the last bit of craziness. Thank you Don! Trisha and Michael Antalek, North Andover, MA
-Trisha F, 10/10/2009, Wedding Ceremony, Bedford, NH
He was wonderful. Everyone was impressed with his talent. He was friendly and pleasant. We would highly recommend him to others. Thank-you so much! The Windham Womans Club
-Anne E, 10/7/2009, Club, Windham, NH
Don was WONDERFUL. He is so talented and accommodating. He transposed and arranged by ear, a piece we wanted for the bride’s processional in less than 2 months – far less time than most musicians require. He is professional and clearly takes his music and clients very seriously. I cannot give a higher recommendation, thank you so much Don!!
-Maile T, 10/3/2009, Wedding, Boston, MA
Don was a joy to work with. He was extremely accommodating to our needs and helped us plan our beautiful day. Don arrived at the venue really early to ensure he was properly prepared for our wedding. He also accommodated us by accompanying our friend on an opera piece and the performance was breathtaking. We had a moment after the ceremony where our guest were not gathering around the area we originally spoke to Don about, so he adjusted his location where our guest could truly enjoy his talent. He filled the estate with wonderful background music and a great vibe.
-Melissa D, 9/25/2009, Wedding, Barre, MA
Don was great! We had a small cermony and he went above and beyond to accomodate our requests. He announced my small wedding party and also learned a song that means alot to me and my husband. “Want to grow old together” My guest are raving how great he was and how perfect he was for a small dinner reception. It was just perfect rather than being overbearing with a DJ or band! Thanks Don for all your accomdating request and your fast feedback!
–Annie J, 8/8/2009, Wedding
Don and I didn’t meet until my actual wedding date but we did correspond via e-mail. Don was very warm and accommodating as well as timely. He played a variety of music and all of our guests were delighted with his talent!! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him for any occasion!
–Sherry K, 8/1/2009, Wedding, South Windsor, CT
Don was one of the best parts of my wedding! He was there plenty early to make sure he was playing for the earliest guests and even stayed a little late when my cocktail hour ran late. He had a great selection of songs and even learned one very special one for me. Thanks Don – the compliments keep coming in from our guests for you!
–Crystal C, 7/11/2009, Wedding, Boston, MA
As the mother of the bride, I wished and hoped that everything would run smoothly for my daughter, Leslie’s wedding. Don Sanni did not disappoint. His performance was spectacular! Planning the list of musical pieces was easy with Don. He always returned our e mails immediately. Because he specializes in arranging and performing all types of wedding music, he had lots of good suggestions about the type of music that would fit the occasion. He was organized, and he helped the bride and groom stay organized! Our guests continuously raved about his concert performance, and the beauty of the pieces he chose leading up to the ceremony. They said that they were treated to a beautiful concert even before the wedding began! He did a wonderful job playing in synch with the sequence and pace of the ceremony. I would highly recommend Don Sanni to play at any wedding venue, and I will be sure to call again when my younger daughter plans a wedding.
–Joanne B, 7/3/2009, Wedding, Boston, MA
I’m giving Don a 5 only because your scale doesn’t go any higher. Don was such a professional and extrememly accommodating to our requests. His talent doesn’t even compare to other musicians I’ve hired or have seen at special events. Several of my guests commented on how great the selection of songs were. Even with how busy he is, Don went out of his way to learn one of my favorite songs so that I could walk down the aisle to it. That meant the world to me. I would absolutely positively recommend Don as the musician for your special event.
—Kate G, 6/26/2009, Wedding, East Providence, RI
Don was very accommodating with our selection of songs, and had some ideas of his own that worked perfectly. He arrived early and his set up was very neat and out of the way. His appearance was very professional. His musicianship was extraordinary. We had a mix up in getting him his pay and tip at the end (we got caught up in pictures and the person who was supposed to pay him forgot) and even though Don had to wait for approx. 45 mins he was very patient and understanding. I highly recommend Don!!

Don was wonderful!!! Planning my wedding was very stressful up to the last dance, but no worries went to DON, he was early, all set up in two locations (ceremony and cocktail hr) and played amazingly!!! He even performed a special song with my younger sibling, he went way above and beyond…If you are looking for a great professional musician, who is actually affordable, Don is the one for you, THANK YOU SO MUCH DON, the Hicks.
—Tessa H, 5/16/09, Wedding, Windham, NH
Don did a fantastic job at our wedding. I would highly recommend him.
–Dan B., Methuen, MA, 05/09/2009
We had the pleasure of Don Sanni’s professional talent at our wedding in Stowe last Feb. No one attending was from the area but setting up the reservation with Don was simple. With all the activity of a wedding day, we had no worry about Don. He played acoustic guitar for our cocktail and dinner hours and set the perfect ambiance for both parts of the day! He was easy going and sociable between sets. We received compliments all night and today his playing still stands out in wedding conversation. If you are considering an alternative to the usual music during your wedding or for any occasion that would be enhanced by the warm sound of an acoustic guitar, contact Don!
–Patrick S, 2/7/2009, Wedding, Stowe, VT
Don Sanni played at our wedding on November 15th and he was wonderful! He made our wedding even more special with his beautiful music. Everyone was so impressed with him and kept asking how we found him. We’re so glad we were able to find him on Gigmasters! We highly recommend! -Michelle & Jeff
–Michelle L., Lynnfield, MA, 11/15/2008
Don Sanni plyayed my wedding and he was amazing! During the planning process, he always responded to me right away. He learned a new song at my request, and it sounded perfect at our ceremony. My father commented on how friendly and professional he was. His music added a very classy touch and I would highly recommend him to others!
–Martha D., Kennebunk, ME, 11/1/2008
Don was very pleasant and easy to work with. He even invited us to his house to discuss the musical arrangement for our ceremony. He knew exactly what to play once we let him know our preferences. He showed up at the wedding place on time (very early actually) to make sure everything was going to be set up properly. We had our ceremony outside, and our cocktail hour inside, so he wanted to make sure both his PA systems were setup and ready in both locations. Being a musician myself, I felt Don’s guitar playing was outstanding and professional. Everyone at our wedding commented on his performance. I recommend Don for any acoustic needs, formal or informal. Thx Don!
–Brett T., Sterling, MA, 10/25/2008
Don was great! He is a total professional, an amazing guitarist, and a nice guy. The ceremony was held in an area with no power outlets but Don had a remote power unit ready to go. Highly recommended.
–Nathan L., Tyringham, MA, 10/11/2008
Don did a wonderful job at our wedding, and was very accommodating to changes and last minute requests. We had a ton of compliments on his songs. I would rehire Don in a heartbeat!!
–Dan H., Amherst, MA, 10/4/2008
We can’t say enough about how happy we were with Don at our wedding! We booked him based on the reviews on Gigmasters and the music on his site, and we couldn’t be happier with the result. He was the consummate professional from start to finish.
Don was always prompt with answers to our questions, while providing fresh ideas and great communication in general leading up to our big day. When the day arrived, Don was there early, even though it was a 2-hour drive for him. We did all of our own planning, and while we were running around taking care of last-minute preparations and worrying whether everything was ready, Don was a calming friend. He was set-up in two locations and dressed in his suit even before the groom was dressed! Put simply, Don removed the stress from the music portion of our day and while other aspects of the afternoon needed our attention, he required no assistance whatsoever.
In addition to his professionalism, Don is also a great musician. He played our ceremony and the cocktail hour, and our guests are still telling us how much they enjoyed the music. It was absolutely perfect.
Last but not least, Don is a really nice guy. Even though we met for the first time just a few hours before our wedding, Don seemed to genuinely care about us. Rather than just show up to play music, he took a sincere interest in our day. When dinner was over and he was getting ready to head home, we felt like we were saying goodbye to one of our guests and were sad that he had to leave!
Bottom line — Don is a complete professional, fantastic musician, and kind person who was an integral part of making our day so special. We enthusiastically and without hesitation recommend him to anyone considering his services.
Thank you, Don!
Sarah T., Lyman, NH, 9/27/2008
Don was GREAT! He worked up a special arrangment of a song a requested to walk down the aisle to, and he played many ohter songs so i could choose what it was i wanted to play for the other songs used at our wedding ceremony. He did an excellent job and all our guest were talking about how much they loved the music! Thanks Don you helped make our day beautiful!
–Julie F., Salem, MA, 9/20/2008
I want to say that we have received so many compliments from family and friends on Don’s music. Don certainly exceeded theirs and our expectations. Our JP was nearly an hour late and Don kept right on playing music through the extended wait in to the cold and dark night – NOT AN EASY THING TO DO I’m sure. You were kind, helpful in music selections, helpful with our singer and just an overall nice vendor to work with. We appreciate your music and your service. Thanks Don! Happy Holidays!
–Jessica F., Topsfield, MA, 9/19/2008
Don was nothing short of an amazing asset on our wedding day! He played beautiful, perfect music for our wedding ceremony. He was very thorough and attentive during the planning process, and even learned a new tune for me! Our ceremony went perfectly and I’m sure it will be very memorable thanks to Don’s contribution. Thank you so much, Don!
–Glencora M., Rindge, NH, 9/14/2008
Don made our ceremony absolutely PERFECT. We received several comments, and were so happy with him.
–Lindsay M., Cape Neddick, ME, 8/15/2008
Couldn’t be better. Don was very accomodating when we were selecting musicians, after we hired him, and on out wedding day. Not only did Don take the time to play some songs over the phone, he invited up to his home to hear his music on person. On the day Don arrived early, and played beautifully. If you’re looking for classical guitar, you really don’t need to look any further.
–David L., Newport, RI, 8/10/2008
Don was a fantastic addition to our wedding. He called several weeks in advance to review music for the ceremony and it was everything we had envisioned for our big day. I HIGHLY recommend him.
–Marin S., Newport, RI, 8/2/2008
Don did a great job. He did exactly what we were looking for and we were extremely pleased with his performance.
-Ane C, 7/19/2008, Wedding, Jackson, NH
Don was wonderful! I had a special request to walk down the aisle to “What a Wonderful World” with my father. He was more than happy to learn it for me! He was very professional and always available to answer questions for me. I would highly recommend Don to anyone I know getting married!
-Jill W, 7/5/2008, Wedding, Princeton, MA
It was a great experience working with Don. He responded to our emails promptly and he was accommodating to our needs. He suggested music that was perfect for the ceremony. Even though we were in the west coast, we were able to working everything out and the our wedding day turned out perfect.
-Rebecca M, 7/2/2008, Wedding, Newport, RI
The music was beautiful and complimented the overall feel of our wedding. Thank you Don!
-Amy B, 6/15/2008, Wedding, York Harbor, ME
Don did a GREAT job! Everyone complimented my new husband and me on how nice his music was and how much they enjoyed listening to it. He was helpful in choosing the music for our wedding and we enjoyed having him there. I would definitely recommend Don to friends and family for future events.
-Lindsay E, 6/1/2008, Wedding, Lee, NH
Don was amazing! I wanted a specific song for my bridal procession and he took the time to learn it perfectly. He was very professional at the wedding, but perhaps more importantly he was always very prompt and helpful in all our communications prior to the event. That was definitely helpful to a nervous bride :). His song selections during the cocktail hour were wonderful, and many guests complimented his talent. I would recommend him to anyone for any type of event!
-Kristen D, 5/31/2008, Wedding, Plymouth, VT
I hired Don for my wedding and, I have to say, I couldn’t have been more pleased. Don was early, professional, and his performance was perfect for our event. The venue posed some challenges in terms of set up, and Don had to move his equipment into a couple of different rooms because of what we were doing for the cocktail hour/ceremony/reception, and he handled everything perfectly. It was a special evening and Don was a big part in making that happen. My wife and I were both thrilled with his performance and demeanor throughout the night, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a talented, professional and personable musician.
-Howard G. Boston MA. 3/22/08
Don accommodated our requests and was very helpful with suggestions. We received so many complements. I would definitely use Don again.
-Christine C, Newport, RI
The feedback I received from attendees of the event was that Don could not have been better. He was on time, professional, accommodating, well dressed and above all, very talented. We enjoyed his entertainment thoroughly and would not hesitate to hire him again or recommend him to anyone.
-Lynn M., 12/7/2007, Wilmington, MA
Don was a pleasure to work with, and his performance was absolutely beautiful. He truly set the tone for our wedding celebration, and our guests were greatly impressed with his talent.
-Carla G, 10/27/2007, Wedding, Lowell, MA
We hired Don to play our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. The entire experience with Don, from initial contact to song selection to the big day was a complete pleasure. Don’s professionalism is second to none and he is a master of his craft. His musical talent gave our ceremony and cocktail hour such a beautiful, peaceful feeling that put all the guests and even us at ease! If you’re looking for a skilled guitarist who knows a dynamic range of styles, is courteous, punctual and all around professional, we highly recommend Don Sanni. Thank you again for everything Don! Mark & Corinne Rowe New Hampshire
-Mark R, 10/20/2007, Wedding, Keene, NH
Don was a pleasure to work with, helped us pick some great songs to fit our wedding perfectly. All of our wedding guests were really impressed with the music and said it was just right for the setting and for the tone we wanted for the ceremony. I would recommend Don for anyone looking for wonderful classical guitar music, and I hope I can find an occasion to have him play for us again in the future.

-Jeff S, 9/15/2007, Wedding, Kennebunk, ME
Don was fantastic! He was very professional and easy to work with. He accommodated all our requests and even learned a song for us. Many of our wedding guests commented on how beautiful the music was. Don’s rendition of Vivaldi’s Guitar Concerto, Bach’s Jesu Joy, and Handel’s Air from Water Music brought tears to many people’s eyes (including ours!). We highly recommend Don for anyone who wants gorgeous classical music to accompany their special day. Don, thank you so much!!!!!!
–Sonya K. Walpole, ME 9/2/2007
Don, thank you so much for making our day so much more special! Your playing and the attention to all the details of our ceremony is greatly appreciated. You sounded great! Everyone commented how wonderfully you played. As musicians ourselves, we could not be happier. THANK YOU! Milan and Sara
–Milan D. Bethel, ME 9/1/2007
Don, was extremely accommodating and professional. He learned 4 or 5 songs especially for my ceremony. We had a one hour phone session where he played songs over the phone so I was able to hear a wide selection. He listened to my requests and fulfilled them all. He was on time, looked great and performed beautifully. I would highly recommend him for your event 🙂 Beth-
-Beth B, 8/23/2007, Wedding, Newport, RI

I highly recommend Don.
-Nancy F, 6/30/2007, Wedding, York Beach, ME

Don was wonderful to work with and an amazing guitarist. We could not have been more pleased.
-Karen C, 8/5/2006, Wedding, Sudbury, MA
Don provided very elegant music for our outdoor cocktail reception. He was very professional and talented. It was perfect. The only thing I would have changed is that he brought a larger amplifier for an outdoor reception so his beautiful music could have been better appreciated.
-Robert K, 7/15/2006, Wedding, Portland, ME
Unfortunately I didn’t get to hear Don play, but NUMEROUS people came to be at the reception glowing about the music. They said it added such elegance to the whole setting/ceremony. Thank you Don for a job VERY well done. I will be sure to recommend Don and gigmasters.com to friends and family. Everything was perfect – I love your talent and your service. You made it easy to find the perfect music! Thanks!

I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THE DECISION TO HIRE DON AND I NEVER PHYSICALLY MET HIM UNTIL THAT DAY. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DON!!!! ANGELA
-Angela D, 4/29/2006, Wedding, Bellingham, MA
We were very fortunate to find Don for our wedding ceremony. We had exactly 2 weeks to throw everything together and thought we would have to compromise on a quality musician to accommodate our request. Not true! Don was prompt in his reply and was very professional in his repore but most importantly is a very good musician. We wanted someone who could play classical and contemporary music, it was a lot to ask of a musician, but he did both beautifully. We also dumped the burden of song choice on his lap and not only were we very satisfied with his choice of songs but we were very satisfied with his musicianship. In addition, his performance was tireless- he continued to play for the entire three hour period with only a couple of very short breaks. Our wedding DVD confirms the wonderful ambiance Don’s performance added to the occasion. Thanks Don for being part of our special day! Oncore! ONCORE!
-James H, 3/25/2006, Wedding, Arlington, MA
Don is very professional and he’s a talented musician. Having him at our function took it to a whole new level of class (we have banquets annually but have never had a musician there)!
-Julia F, 2/1/2006, Corporate Function, Hampton, NH
Don was wonderful! he was willing to meet ahead of time to discuss his music and the ceremony. He was very accommodating. His music was perfect for the intimate setting and there were many favorable comments about his musical selections and talent.

-Marilyn R, 10/29/2005, Anniversary, Milford, NH
A real pleasure to work with. A true gentleman.
-Ron K, 10/22/2005, Wedding, Simsbury, CT
