Quantcast

Pete was sensational. His music contributed to the elegance of our event. Pete played at a jubilee brunch with guests aged from 24 to 86 and all thoroughly enjoyed his music and the song selections. He asked our crowd size and brought appropriate amplification to ensure that the volume was perfect. He is professional and extremely talented.

Pete is a wonderful musician and a great choice for any event. He played for the Bach Choir of Bethlehem dinner and the performance was enjoyed by all. Pete is flexible and easily adapts to audience and venue. He is great about communicating with you about the performance details. I often hear him play at The Cafe in Bethlehem so I knew the music would be great.

My party was a send off for my son going into the Navy. There were age ranges from 20's to 80's. Pete was the perfect choice for this event. I wanted someone to play all sorts of styles to please everyone. Petes expertise on the seven string guitar was amazing. He was wonderfully entertaining at my very upbeat and happy occasion. We could not have been any happier with our choice. Pete was very attentive to every detail and request I had made. He made it very easy for me as I gave him full reign of musical choices and he handled it from there, although my input was welcome. Communication leading up to the party was great. Pete was professional and pleasant throughout the entire process. Very talented and professional guy!

For years it has been our pleasure to know Pete Smyser and have him perform at our home many times for various parties. He is a great guitarist, professional, gentlemen and we consider him our friend.
We wish him much success.
Looking forward to seeing him again soon.

Our family has had Pete play at numerous parties (Wedding Rehearsals, Wedding Anniversaries, Retirement Parties, etc.) over the years and every time he performs it is fantastic--Pete and saxophone player Ted are now considered honorary family members. Their quality of work and professionalism are second to none. Every time they perform we hear such great feedback from our guests.
