I’ll admit I was nervous about booking a guitarist online. However, I found this process easy and very efficient. I called Gerry and he returned my call right away. He arrived early to our event, he was very professional, easy to talk to, and very talented. I would recommend Gerry Johnston for any event.

I was reluctant to hire a musician online, site unseen, however I must say that Gerry proved fantastic! Sensitive to the environment in terms of sound level & ambience, Gerry’s music was a great match for our gathering of family & friends onboard the Friendship. Many thanks Gerry!

Dear Gerry, Thank you for coming to our library to perform jazz tunes with your classical guitar. Everyone really enjoyed your concert. Not only did you play a wonderful variety of pieces, but you also provided information about the composers. We really appreciated learning about the history of the music. I hope that someday you will produce a CD. A number of people asked me if you had one. We certainly would like one for our library. Best wishes to you Gerry!

“If I had to describe your performance in one word it would be “spellbinding”. Your music just carries people away. The house concert you gave in our home was very well received by everyone; there were so many positive remarks from people. Your program included a wide variety of selections. You relate easily and well to your audience and provide interesting program notes about the music. In short, your performance was wonderful – a delightful evening of beautiful music.”
