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!

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.

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!!!!!!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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!

Don was so easy to work with and flexible. We had a beautiful wedding on an orchard in some extreme heat- Don was professional, kind and made the ceremony so special with his beautiful music. Don came early, stayed late and brought extra equipment to meet our needs. I can’t be more pleased with his work! Thank you Don!
–Franklin D. Brentwood, NH on 8/14/16
Don selected and provided the perfect music as background for our 50th Anniversary party. He also was willing to accompany younger members of our family who sang. It was a pleasure to have Don with us for this very special occasion.
