Wedding in Cold Spring, NY on 1/14/2017
Songs performed include: "Annie's Song" by John Denver, "At Last" by Etta James
From beginning to end, perfect. Johnny arrived early and was ready to go once our guests arrived. Johnny began with some background music for our cocktail hour and dinner. Once dinner was over, although a solo performance, he had people on the dance floor the entire time. All our guests had a great time. He made our special day even more special and we highly recommend this talented musician! -Dawn K

"Sea of Love" by Cat Power, "Lava" from the Pixar short
Johnny brought amazing talent and good vibes to our wedding! Leading up to the big day, he was very communicative and when we asked for a specific request, he quickly sent a sample back and absolutely nailed it. We had very particular goals of making sure our whole day was calm, cool, and authentically us. And Johnny brought his A-game and made sure the music was on point to the vibe we set out for. THANK YOU! -Ellen O
Wedding in Los Angeles, CA on 2/13/2016
"Thinking Out Loud" by Ed Sheeran, "You Make My Dreams Come True" by Hall & Oates
Johnny is an incredibly talented musician with expertise in piano and ukulele... to top off his multi-skills in instruments, he also has an amazing voice! Johnny was very responsive, professional and accommodating from the start to end. He made planning for the big day with ease and one less person to follow up with. It was really nice to know that you can count on him to do his part and do it just the way you imagine it. Wonderful performance! Thanks for making it memorable!!
Wedding in Beacon, NY on 6/25/2017
"Book of Love" by The Magnetic Fields, "The Luckiest" by Ben Folds
There are no words to express how happy and grateful we are that Johnny was part of our wedding day From the beginning, Johnny was unbelievably accommodating and friendly, and we knew off the bat we could trust him. We weren't necessarily looking for a ukulele player, but Johnny's rendition of Book of Love had us hooked and we knew he was the right fit. From our first call, he made us extremely comfortable and went above and beyond - he learned songs that were special to us, set us up with a violinist for the prelude and ceremony, and sent us an entire list so we could put them on our DJ's "do not play" list for the reception. On the wedding day, he arrived early and was professional and friendly to all. Having live music made a huge impact on the ceremony and he played the songs that were special to us perfectly. -Lisa C.
Wedding in Bloomfield, NJ on 10/09/2016
"Can't Take My Eyes Off You" by Frankie Valli, "Til There Was You" by Meredith Wilson
Johnny was awesome! Everyone at our wedding loved him. He played ukulele for our ceremony and did a beautiful job, and he also played piano for our cocktail hour. Super professional, super accommodating! Can't say enough great things about him. He really knows what he's doing. He also provided us with mics for our ceremony and he even learned some new songs to play for our ceremony on the ukulele. He is wonderful, so glad we hired him for our wedding!! Money well spent. -Kayla B.
Wedding in Sea Bright, NJ on 8/06/2016
"Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen, "The One" by Kodaline
We had our wedding ceremony on the beach and thought a ukulele would be perfect for the vibe we were going for. Johnny was great right from the start! He answered my many, many questions, took time to record and send me sample tracks, and was friendly and professional every step of the way. In all the craziness of the big day, I only wish I had gotten to listen to him perform more! -Jennifer C
Wedding in New Egypt, NJ on 4/23/2016
"Lovesong" by the Cure, "Such Great Heights" by The Postal Service
Johnny was simply amazing. He responded quickly to emails, and made the entire process stress free. He is so talented and was able to play every song we requested, most of which were very alternative. Not only did he know the songs and/or learn them, his arrangements were flawless. His music helped set the whole vibe we were going for. I hope we have another life event of some sort we
can utilize him for! Thank you Johnny! -Shelby C
Wedding in Keene, NH on 7/19/2014
"Home" by Edward Sharpe, "Simple Song" by The Shins, "On The Radio" by Regina Spector
We gave Johnny a complicated set of requests: perform 3 songs (singing, guitar, ukulele), but with different groups of family/friends who can only meet the wedding weekend. We needed him to arrange the songs and coordinate the rehearsal. We knew it was a lot. But Johnny’s modest confidence and professionalism earned him the respect of those we asked to perform with him, meant that the performers loved rehearsing, and gave us an end result that was so much better than we expected. Johnny is a talented musician and arranger, and a strong leader. We are truly indebted to him for making our somewhat crazy musical vision come to life. We can't recommend him enough. -Casey H
Wedding in Sparta, NJ on 6/6/2015
"Over the Rainbow" by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, "Here Comes the Sun by The Beatles, "Ave Maria"
Johnny was amazing! Such talent! From the moment we contacted him and throughout the experience it was always pleasant, professional and courteous. He learned new songs that were requested by my daughter for the wedding. He also played a couple of Disney tunes on piano during our cocktail hour as he noted some "fairy tail, Disney" moments during the ceremony. We can't thank him enough for creating the ambiance we were looking for. All I can say to someone thinking about hiring him is please do, you won't be sorry!! -Debbie W
Birthday Party in Westport, CT on 9/5/2015
John is a terrific talent and was a great addition to my wife's surprise birthday party. He plays beautifully and has a wonderful voice. Personable. Funny. He fit right in. Everyone loved him. His ukulele skills were an added extra and he serenaded us outside on our terrace after playing our piano in the living room. A great find and a great guy. -Russ H
Wedding in Ringwood, NJ on 7/12/2014
Songs performed include: "Make You Feel My Love"
Johnny was the perfect addition to my sister's wedding ceremony this past Saturday. Johnny was so accommodating and kind while helping us select the music for the wedding. He far exceeded our expectations in terms of performance ability. His style of playing was soothing and creative, adding almost a jazzy feel. He sang "Make You Feel My Love" with such emotion using his voice as an additional gift. I received many inquiries about him throughout the night and look forward to booking Johnny Herbert again in the near future. Thank you! -Lauren B
Wedding in Pompton Lakes, NJ on 1/24/2014
"Out of My League" by Stephen Speaks and "I Won't Let Go" by Rascal Flatts
Johnny Herbert gave my wife and I exactly what we were looking for for our wedding. We didn't want to have the traditional, sometimes thought to be boring, songs play at our wedding. He allowed us to pick some pop culture songs to be played in the wedding. A few he even had to take the time to learn before he could be able to play them at the wedding. At the end of the ceremony many of our guest comment on how impressed they were by the music selection and execution. My wife and I could not have been happier with the performance we were given. We will be forever thankful for the extra attention we feel was paid to our desires on our special day. -Chris B
