Billy played at our wedding ceremony and cocktail reception at Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards on August 2, 2014. We found him on WeddingWire (woo!). He was absolutely phenomenal – both vocal and acoustic guitar – and a fantastic addition to our wedding festivities. He played a variety of songs to fit the overall mood & theme of the event. He was so good that I’ve had a few guests email me separately asking for his information! Overall, we were highly pleased with Billy and are forever grateful that he was part of our special American ceremony. Thanks again for everything, Billy!
Billy was a truly wonderful part of our wedding. He was so easy to work with. From our first conversation, it was clear that this was a talented guy that we were lucky enough to snag before he hits the big time in the wedding circuit. And then as we continued to get to know him, it became apparent that he is too humble of a guy to turn into that. From the set list, to the cost structure, to his understanding of how important communication is in wedding planning, he exceeded all of our expectations.
On the day of, he did all the set-up himself, he played what we asked and he had his finger on the pulse of the evening. Other reviewers mentioned that he has played softer, bluesy music, which he also did at ours, but he can also play stuff that really rocks the house. There was rock, blues, country, classic rock, indie, folk, etc. When the party needed some life, he brought it big time, and when it needed a slow-down, he played just the right thing. This is a guy who has the voice and musical knowledge and talent to play larger functions, or to really bond with a smaller crowd. He played stuff that ranged over four decades. We loved him, our guests loved him, truly he was the man.
Billy played for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. I really enjoyed his music. He was incredibly flexible and was willing to learn whatever songs we wanted. For our wedding, he had to learn 3 out of 4 and did a great job on all of them. Not only did I but my guests enjoyed his music and appreciated the acoustic bluesy sound he has.
In addition, he surprised me and came to our rehearsal. It was great to have him there so that we could hear and see how the ceremony will go. By doing this, it gave me great comfort in knowing all will go well – and having that was every bit apart of what made me a very relaxed bride for what turned out to be the most perfect wedding! Thank you Billy! If I was ever to have a need for an acoustic guitarist again, I am calling you!
I booked Billy for my wedding cocktail hour and reception and he exceeded my expectations. He was a pleasure to work with prior to the event because he answered all my questions in a prompt manner and was very conscientious of my concerns. Our crowd absolutely loved his energy and ability to take requests. He performed acoustically outdoors and then moved inside for dinner- the transition was perfect and Billy kept everyone happy and entertained. I would highly recommend him for his professionalism, work ethic, attention to detail, and skill as a musician.
We were married this June and used Billy Caldwell for our music. He played both our ceremony and part of our reception (our song, father/daughter and mother/son dances, as well as some music before dinner). We couldn’t have been happier with the services he provided. Billy is incredibly professional and willing to work with any musical suggestion you may have. With ample time, he is even willing to learn some new songs for your big day. He was also helpful suggesting some songs, seeing as how I hadn’t really put too much thought into any of the ceremony music. His suggestions were perfect! He really took the time to get to know us and could tell exactly what we wanted. I would highly recommend him to any bride looking for the full musical package, or even if you just want something for the ceremony. You won’t be disappointed.
Billy did a fantastic job at my daughter’s wedding! We received many compliments on him and he was a pleasure to work with!
Billy played our rehearsal dinner and ceremony. He was AMAZING! Our guests raved about him and he was so easy to work with! Highly recommend him!
Billy is the man! My wife and I booked Billy for our wedding reception, which was a smaller intimate affair in our friends backyard. Billy, went ot of his way to make our reception a success! Billy asked us if we wanted him to play any special songs, and if he didn’t know the songs he would learn them. He played to our crowd which was multi-generational and evryone had a great time! Billy made our reception very memorable!
Billy was a class act and very talented musician. He was easy to work with and came thru with more then we could have expected.
