I played a wedding in Solvang, in the Santa Ynez Valley. The Groom sent this review to my booking agency.

     "Simply said, Chris was absolutely amazing! My biggest complaint was that I had to take pictures during a portion of his session!! Upon my return, almost every guest so asking me, "where did you find Chris?". Not only talented, Chris has a great personality and is truly an outstanding musician/singer. I would have paid him 10X what he charges, but I am thankful his rates are very affordable. Great job Chris and I look forward to having you perform at our house in OC in the near future!"

This was a fun one.... Cal Poly San Luis Obispo College had a big outdoor picnic for the faculty, staff & their families. It was about 200 people of  all ages & lots of dogs. The Professor was kind enough to send this review.

     "One word - WOW! Great voice, great selection incredible delivery. Still 3 weeks later and I'm getting "thank you and who was that fabulous singer?!" We had an outdoor setting and it was an incredible experience! Chris made it all come together, with a voice that had all ages listening and enjoying. We definitely plan to hire him again!"

I just played an outdoor backyard cocktail party for about 50 people. The hostess was nervous, she doesn't have many parties & was hopeful for a great evening with her friends. She left this very kind review for my booking agency.

     "Chris was a pleasure to work with beginning to end. Very accommodating to special requests for our party. He is amazingly talented but has an easy and relaxed attitude about what he does. His song list is incredible and he really adapted himself to our party and our guests. Would highly recommend him. Will hire him again!"

I was hired to play an Engagement party by a friend of the Bride.... When the Bride arrived, we realized she had hired me (independently of course) to play at her wedding ceremony & cocktail hour.... Needless to say, we had a really fun party....

     "Chris was a CLASS act. He was early and played alone for my 3 year old son before the party started because my son loves music. He helped to create a fantastic evening. His voice is perfect and he chooses wonderful songs. Such a small world that the Bride-to-Be had picked him to play at her wedding!! Will definitely book with him again!!! You won't be sorry."

When I got back from a beautiful wedding at The Sanctuary at Camelback Mountain, in Scottsdale, Arizona, The Bride had sent this review to my on-line booking agency...

     " Chris was a joy to work with. We hired him for our wedding in Scottsdale, AZ - to play during ceremony and cocktail hour. We received numerous compliments after the wedding, lots of " where did you find him???!! " He was very professional, showed up before the scheduled time, and just performs a fantastic set. His song list is vast, which made it easy to select all the music we needed. I am happy to shout his praises ! "

I recently played a beautiful wedding at Wente Winery in Livermore, not far from Napa Valley - The Bride had very eclectic musical taste - Everything from instrumental "Journey" songs to Justin Beiber (!).... Here's what she wrote to my on-line booking agency

     "Chris was without a doubt the most talked about "detail" of our wedding. All of our family and friends, young and old, raved about what an amazing addition Chris was to the wedding. He performed before and after our ceremony, during our cocktail hour, and during our first few dances. I'm pretty sure we all wish he could have gone longer. He was a pleasure to deal with leading up to the wedding, and he performed spectacularly during the event. He could not have been nicer or more respectful of us and our guests. If someone told me I can only recommend one "vendor" from our wedding, Chris would get the nod. He was worth every penny, and more"

One of my favorite places for a Wedding is The Four Seasons/Biltmore in Santa Barbara. When they returned home from their Honeymoon, this note from the Bride was waiting for me....

     " Hello Chris - We just wanted to express our gratitude for the amazing job you did - in making our wedding a super special event. The music you played, in company with your soulful voice set the stage for incredible feelings & memories from that night. You are extremely professional and at the same time totally relaxed & easy going - a great combination. We absolutely made the right choice with you. Thank You again ! "

I just played a big private party in Santa Barbara - The host sent this review to my booking agency...

     " Off the charts. Chris was amazing, he truly made our party special. I had several musician friends at the party who thought Chris was exceptional. Please feel free to use me as a reference "

Recently I played a backyard birthday party in Huntington Beach... I received this review before I even got home...

    " Chris was great! I really couldn't say more good things about him. I hired him for my fiancés surprise party and he showed up before the guests did and played acoustic guitar while the guests were arriving...the birthday boy got there and he started playing right away- he was such a great addition to the party overall! Everyone and I mean everyone, kept asking me where I got him and just raving about how great he was. He played songs that just went with the mood of the party and we were all still able to talk and enjoy the music at the same time. He was so professional and very kind. I would hire him in a heartbeat for another event and I would highly recommend him! "

I just played a huge wedding in Downtown LA at The Los Angeles Athletic Club - Elegant, old world style... Here's what the Bride said...

     "Christopher Wooley played for my wedding Ceremony. He was outstanding! He went above and beyond my requests. I asked him to play a song during the processional and recessional. I did not even think of playing songs during the ceremony but when we gave flowers to the parents, Christopher played a nice instrumental which added the perfect touch. We cannot be any happier with the way things turned out."

I was asked to play a corporate event in Newport Beach. The host sent this review to my booking agency...

     " Chris Wooley was an amazing acoustic guitarist & vocalist with a wide variety of songs to suit any taste. During the entire time, he had people swaying to the music & a few even ventured to dance. The volume was a great level & afterwards we received lots of great compliments on the music.... Thanks for making our experience at the Cannery even better ! "

I played a private party for about 30 people in Pasadena. They requested a very eclectic mix of music... everything from Garth Brooks to 80's rock to Jack Johnson.... Before I even got home, the client sent me this beautiful note.

     " Amazing. Incredible. Fabulous. HIGHLIGHT OF THE PARTY!!!!  I apologize for not being able to say good-bye. Busy with the little ones. Chris, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You put a smile on our faces the entire night! My highlights were Friends in Low Places, Don't Stop Believing and honestly, everything in between. Everyone was commenting all night long on how fabulous you were. YOU make me want to throw another party, just so we can listen to your incredible music again! I have a feeling this is the start of many fun parties with you in the future. I hope you had fun. You were truly amazing. Much, much thanks ! "

This morning, she sent this note to my booking agency....

     " Chris was absolutely fabulous. He MADE our party. Incredibly professional, accommodating and TALENTED!!! His voice was magical. We now want to host another party just so we can ask Chris to come sing for us again. We could not recommend him more highly. "

This Summer, I traveled to Kauai, Hawaii to play a wedding & rehearsal party for an amazing couple from San Francisco and 100 of their friends. I prepared quite a few special songs for them, and everyone had a magical time. When I returned home, this email from the Groom was waiting for me.... I love my job.

     " Chris, It was an absolute pleasure to have you be a part of our wedding. We loved hearing from our guests how much they enjoyed you at the Friday night party as well as our wedding day. At one point or another, nearly every one of them specifically said something about you - how much they loved your voice, how much they loved your range of music, etc... and each time it put a huge smile on our faces because we were so delighted that they felt what we have since the very first time we both heard you sing... We agree with you & others who've said that day was magical - it really was for us - and you were a big reason why.. Please do reach out to us when you are coming to San Francisco, as we would truly love to get together with you. Also, if you EVER need a testimonial, please know you can count on us ANYTIME ! All the best to you and your wonderful family. "

I just played an intimate wedding at my favorite venue, San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito. I played my modified 6-string guitar/ukulele most of the evening. This afternoon I received a note from the Bride... To receive these kinds of comments is humbling.

     "Chris, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for being such an integral part of our wedding ! You are so incredibly talented and we received so many compliments for you. Your music style, voice, guitar playing, & attitude was such a perfect addition to our day. The songs you played were so perfect for our group. My only wish is that I could have sat & listened to you longer !! When is your next CD coming out because we want to buy it ! We hope to make it down to Ventura to listen to you play live again someday in the not-so-distant future. All The Best, Elise & Brandon

The week before, I played for another amazing couple at San Ysidro Ranch. The bride sent this review to my booking agency.

     "He was AWESOME !!! People are still talking about him & his talent... WHERE DID YOU FIND HIM ?! was the common question of the night & after. A true pleasure to work with and listen to..... I HIGHLY refer him !

I just played my 4-string & 6-string ukulele for an intimate wedding at The Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica. Before she left on her honeymoon, the Bride sent this note to my booking agency...

     "Finding Christopher Wooley was like finding a diamond in the rough ! He made my wedding ceremony so special and intimate. I cant describe the feeling of walking down the aisle to his live music. It was a moment I'll never forget. He played after the ceremony for our guest's entertainment as well and everyone asked me where we found him. He was a smashing hit. I never worried once about hiring him as soon as I met with him and heard him play and sing. He is extremely talented and we were lucky to have him as a part of our wedding."

 I just played a private event at The Four Seasons Westlake Village. The client sent this very kind review to my booking agency...

      "Chris was amazing ! He is so talented, his smooth voice played throughout our evening & it was so lovely and perfect - exactly what we wanted. He needed little direction, as his professionalism and experience spoke for themselves and provided a perfect evening. I would love to hire him again ! "

Recently I was in Orange County, playing a private event with an "Island" theme, so I played my 2 ukeleles for them....

     "Thank You, Chris ! You made our luncheon party go over the top ! Chris is extremely talented and everyone at the party loved the smooth & easy sounds of his ukelele music and style that we needed for our Hawaiian surfer birthday party. He is a very talented musician. I highly recommend Chris for any event. Thank You, Chris ! "

I just traveled to Big Sur to play at the historic Ventana Inn for a ceremony & cocktail hour. The Bride was so much fun to work with.... She requested everything from Jason Mraz to "Jimmy Eat World". When I returned home, her email was waiting for me. I love my job....

     " Hi Chris !  Thank you so much for making our wedding so special. You were really amazing. We have been hearing from everyone that you were one of the highlights at our wedding, and Cameron and I certainly agree. We had high expectations after hearing all the songs on your website, and you honestly exceeded all of them. I do not even have the words to express to you how amazing we think you are and how thankful and lucky we feel to have had you at our wedding.  If there is anything we can do, like writing a review, please let us know. Also, if you need a reference in the future, we would be happy to sing your praises ! I know that everyone in my family will be calling you for their future events (and luckily we live in Los Angeles, which is far more convenient than Big Sur !! ) Again thank you so much--you really made our wedding so special and warm. We are forever grateful ! THANK YOU AGAIN !!  Nicole "

I just traveled to Tucson again to play a ceremony & cocktail hour at the historic Hacienda Del Sol. When I returned home, the Bride sent this note to my booking agency...

     " Not only does Christopher have amazing talent, but he's a genuinely nice guy which made the experience we had at our wedding fantastic. We started our conversations w/ Christopher many months before our special day & from the get go, he was helpful, accommodating, & gave advice since neither my fiance' or I really knew what we were doing. The day of our wedding, all of our guests were asking "where did you find this guy?" because they were so impressed by his graceful voice & guitar talent. Not only does Christopher have a great list of songs to choose from, but he learned several just for us! My advice? If you don't pick Chris, you're picking the wrong guy. "- Mara F, Wedding Ceremony, Tucson, AZ

Then, she sent this note to me...

     " Hi Chris, THANK YOU for making our wedding so memorable.  Your name was mentioned over and over yesterday as we had brunch with our families.  We all plan on passing your name along to everybody.  We have listened to your CD about 10 times already.... You were wonderful and we really appreciate you making our wedding a day a wonderful, musical memory. "   Mara and Jason

I just played a birthday party / family reunion in Pismo Beach, for a wonderful group of people, from the little kids to the grandparents. I set-up in the corner of an outdoor patio & gave them the proper musical background to enjoy each other's company. The next day, the client sent this review to my booking agency...

     " Chris was amazing... Not only a talented artist, but also very engaging with our family. He made our evening more special than I could have imagined. I would HIGHLY recommend Chris and act as a reference for him anytime. I researched many artists for our event... even some who were on David Letterman, but Chris blew them ALL away. Thank you to GigMasters for making a connection that will last for a long time as we expect to use Chris again ! Best, Steve " -Steve E,  Pismo Beach, CA


I was on my way to Half Moon Bay on Highway 1, a few miles north of Santa Barbara, very early in the morning. When I looked in my rear-view mirror, this is what I saw.... How's this for a California sunrise ? I turned it into my business card..... "On The Road Again"

     Here's the deal with my reviews..... What you'll see on this page are reviews from my recent clients, all from the last couple of years... I don't print the good ones & hide the bad ones.... I don't get bad reviews.... I spend a great deal of time properly preparing the different music & learning the special requirements for each event. No two events are exactly alike, and although the music is just a small part of a larger event, it makes a huge difference when the music is perfect..... My clients are always happy, and they hire me again for important family & corporate celebrations... I'm thankful for the great work, and I love what I do.... I promise you'll receive the highest level of professionalism, musical excellence & peace of mind...


A few days ago I played a private event in Santa Ynez. When I arrived home, this review was waiting.


     "Christopher was simply amazing ! His music and gentle demeanor absolutely made the cocktail hour of my event. My guests raved and raved and are still talking about how memorable it was. I can't recommend him highly enough. He learned 2 new current songs for me as well and was incredibly responsive and easy to work with ! You MUST have him at your next event to make it the most memorable one EVER !


Last Saturday I was asked to play a memorial service / party for about 150 guests. It was a sad occasion, but they asked for some Cat Stevens & Van Morrison music, and I told her I'd play "not so sad" songs, since this was intended to try & keep everybody's spirits up.... When I returned home, she had sent this review to my booking agency....


     "Chris was amazing. He was professional, talented, flexible, and accommodating. He made our day a hundred times better. We received many compliments about Chris from our guests... even from kids. Will definitely book him again! Thanks Chris!"


Then, she sent me this email....


     "I wanted to thank you again for being "the best part" of yesterday's program. That's what my sister in law (Tom's sister) said about you which is just one of many compliments I heard about you.  I just gave you all 5 stars on the GigMasters website and a comment.  Thanks again! We can't wait to book you again for another event!"


     I've played about a dozen large corporate events for a European watch company named Patek-Philippe .. Last week I played for them in Del Mar. During the event, the president of the company turned to me during a speech from the stage & told the 500 member group .... "We've asked Chris to play every event we've had in the Western U.S. for the last 5 or 6 years - Sorry, Chris, you're stuck with us..... We are so thankful you're able to join us - - You've got to come to New York City soon & play for us there "


These next 4 reviews are from April events.... I went from San Diego to San Juan Capistrano to Ventura to Las Vegas & beyond... The first was a big beautiful wedding in San Juan Capistrano  The Bride just sent this review to my booking agency...


     "Christopher performed at my wedding a few days ago and I couldn't be happier that we found him. He was very accommodating  and professional, quick to respond to emails, and of course, the music was just beautiful. I had several guests throughout the event pull me aside to tell me how wonderful he was.  We gave him total freedom over what he played during cocktail hour and he had an impressive variety of songs while keeping it wedding appropriate . I'd recommend him to anyone. So so happy ! "


On Easter Sunday, I helped a local firefighter propose to his lady love outside the Majestic Ventura Theater, with the help of his dog, and 30 family members. I played songs by Ed Sheeran, Chris Stapleton, & Bruno Mars... She said "Yes". Yesterday morning I received this email....


     "You Nailed It ! Thank You so much. See you at the Wedding..."


I just played a wedding at The Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas and The Valley Of Fire State Park - What an incredible experience. When I returned home, this review was waiting for me.


     "Chris was excellent to get in contact with you quickly. He responded to all of my questions, was reasonably priced, very kind and and has a beautiful voice. He learned several new songs per my request and everyone commented on how talented he is. I can not speak highly enough about him or his gifts of playing instruments/singing. Thank you for making our night wonderful/memorable forever! You are the best! -Jodie C, Las Vegas, NV


I just played a beautiful beach wedding in Oceanside. I had such a great time putting together the music with the Groom. When I returned home, he had already sent this review to my booking agency.


     "Chris, was so amazing! What a talent and wonderful guy! Do yourself a favor and book him for your wedding or special event! -Matt R, Oceanside, CA


Here's one from a recent private event in Sherman Oaks.


     "Bottom line... Hire Chris! He was amazing and the night could not have been better. He was prompt, ready to set up and played great sets with songs everyone enjoyed. He even extended an extra hour when asked. He played requests and a wide range of artists. I would hire Chris again in a second and recommend him for your party or event. Thanks Chris! -Michael S, Sherman Oaks, CA

here's the deal....

My view from the stage at The Vancouver Convention Center.... I could see across the Bay, as cruise ships & sea planes crossed my view.... Amazing...

Recently, I played at an intimate "Wine Tasting / Birthday Party" event for about 25 people in Altadena. The next morning I received this note from the client.

     " Chris, We can't thank you enough.  You are absolutely amazing, and were perfect for our group.  We entertain very often, and we'd love to include you periodically in our events.  We will be giving you rave reviews on GigMasters.  Thanks so much for sharing your gift. "

Then, he sent this review to my booking agency...

     " Chris is exceptionally talented ! He created the ambiance at my party with his voice and guitar. All of our guests enjoyed his song selection and various genres. He played everything that I requested and more! From Maroon 5, the Beatles and even Bob Marley ! Chris arrived early and stayed later . Our guests didn't want him to leave. You won't be disappointed if you hire him. We'll definitely ask him to play for us again. I think we've started a Chris Wooley fan club in Altadena ! Thank you Chris for sharing your talent with us... " J&M in Altadena, Ca

This was my New Year's Eve gig at a private event at Cornell Winery in Malibu Canyon.....

     " We would highly recommend Christopher Wooley as a soloist musician. He matched his musical selections throughout the evening to the various differences in the gathering, during the cocktail hour the melodious tunes welcomed our guests, during dinner his music became softer allowing for conversations and after dinner the songs were lively. Chris was extremely accommodating to the variance in schedule that often happens during a party. All our guests had an enjoyable evening and several commented afterwards how wonderful the music was. - Thank You ! "

I just got back from Tucson, where I played a Wedding ceremony & reception. This is the third time in a month I've received a "Thank You" note from a Bride on her Wedding night, even before she went on her Honeymoon. That's the highest compliment I can think of...

     " Chris, Damon and I wanted to thank you for being a part of our wedding. Your talent is amazing!! You made our day great. Every guest commented on how wonderful you were and wanted your contact information to book you for their events, so look forward to coming to Tucson more often :). Thank you also for working with us and playing at the reception as well. You made our day very memorable and for that we cannot thank you enough. Take care and have a great Holiday season!  Cyndie and Damon "

Then, she sent this review to my booking agency...

     " Christopher Wooley is amazing! Hands down he is the best choice for your event. His talent is incredible and his voice is outstanding. On top of this he goes above and beyond to make your event special. He is dependable, timely and very personable. All our guests were amazed by his performance. We are very thankful we booked Chris because he definitely made our wedding day wonderful. I would not hesitate recommending him for any event. We can't thank Chris enough for making our day so special. "

I just played an intimate Birthday party for about 40 people at an elegant Italian Restaurant in Hollywood. The next morning I received this note from the client....

      " Dear Chris, We really enjoyed your music and warm, bright spirit tremendously.  At least a dozen people approached me to tell me how wonderful the music was, and the fine part they felt your playing and singing had in their enjoyment.  Thank you very much ! "

I just played a Wedding in Half Moon Bay, outside of San Francisco. Before she went on her Honeymoon, the Bride sent this written review to my booking agency...

      " Amazing!!! He always got back to us within a few hours of e-mailing, learned 2 songs that turned out to be beyond phenomenal, and arrived at the venue early and stayed late. All of our guests were in awe of his talent. He made our wedding go from good to absolutely amazing. I would hire him in a second if I were ever to plan an event again; in fact I would plan a party around his availability!!! Do yourself a huge favor and hire him, you won't be disappointed, his talent is amazing and the amount of songs he knows will leave you wishing you could hire him for a few days. We couldn't be more thankful and will remember him as a huge part of our special day! "

My duo just played a big Corporate "Casino Night" event at The Century Plaza Hotel in Beverly Hills - At the end of the 4 hour event, the Event Planner whispered in my ear ..." Nobody wants you to stop... Everybody loves you.... Can you keep playing for awhile ? " I just received this review....

      " Chris's duo performed at my corporate event last week. Everyone was very impressed by their talent. Chris was a professional to work with. I would definitely recommend and use them again myself !  "

I played an awesome Beach Wedding at Wood's Cove in Laguna Beach, followed by an intimate reception at Mastro's SteakHouse... The Bride asked for a Jeff Buckley song, some Beatles Instrumental music, and some wonderfully eclectic song choices, followed by a First Dance to a Faith Hill/Tim McGraw tune - Look at this amazing review I just received....

      " We hired Christopher to perform our beach wedding and reception. I am a stickler for service and professionalism and Christopher, by far exceeded our expectations. He was always quick to respond with questions or requests, he arrived early and stayed beyond the time we hired him for. His ability to make the music a soft and soothing backdrop for both events and not overtake everything was unbelievable. His voice was honestly like an angel. He can literally sing anything. As Randy Jackson from American Idol says "Dude, you could sing the phone book and it would sound amazing." We would definitely recommend Christopher for ANY event. Ted and Mia "

I just played a large Corporate event at the JW Marriott in Las Vegas. Today I received this note from the Event Planner

     "Hi Chris - I just wanted to say Thank You for your wonderful performance at our event last week. I've heard a bunch of great feedback on your performance. Thanks, again, Nicole"

I played a beautiful Wedding & reception at The Calabasas Inn. The Bride asked for instrumental versions of "Pachobel's Canon in D" and "Stand By Me" as she walked down the aisle, and I sang "Two Of Us" by The Beatles & Bob Marley's "3 Little Birds" as they walked back..... The reception was everything from Dave Matthews to U2 & Tom Petty... The next morning, I received this note from the Bride....

     " SO many comments on how great the music was....Yesterday was a blur, so I can't wait to see the video. Thanks again for doing a stellar job ! Beautiful work !  - Kristen "

Then, after she saw the video, she sent this written review to my booking agency...

     " Chris was an absolute pleasure to work with and an extraordinary musician. He was so easy going and supportive despite the fact that in being the bride, I was all over the place. At my request, he played a wonderful rendition of "Stand by Me" for my walk down the aisle on our wedding day. I received so many compliments on the music as well. Besides being on time, professional and responsive, Chris made the music so special, which to us was such an important aspect of our wedding. We couldn't be happier that we hired him ! "

                  
Recently, I played a Wedding ceremony & reception in Montecito, at the San Ysidro Ranch. They were so much fun. She asked for Instrumental music & a Garth Brooks song for the ceremony. During the Reception, I played "Sweet Baby James" for the Bride's father, at his request, so he could dance with his daughter. The next morning I received this note from the Bride.

     "Chris - I am not even sure where to begin.  Your talent, charming nature, and eagerness surpassed my wildest imagination, and that's after even seeing your youtube videos!  You are a true talent, one I hope to encounter again.  Thank you so much for making our evening soooooo very special.  The music and your voice is absolutely breathtaking.  I found myself swaying and singing along, and to play that song for me and my Dad, could not have meant more.  I truly cannot thank you enough.  It was an absolute pleasure meeting you and so much fun emailing with you.  If you ever think of it, I would love for you to send me more of the youtube clips and songs, I could listen to your voice all day long. Thank you again for being such a charming and wonderful part of our special day. All the blessings and all the best to you, Whitney"

This is a Thank You note from a client, who asked me to play a family reunion in Santa Barbara, about 50 people, from 2 to 90... I sang a few Disney-Movie songs for the kids, then lots of Beatles, Van Morrison, Eagles, Ray Charles, etc, for everyone else. The Host is a Springsteen fan & I played "Thunder Road" for him...

     "Chris – you have legendary status in our household ….I can’t tell you how often we think about that night and about your performance….you were unreal/unbelievable…..and yes – “Thunder Road”  - thanks for giving me my 5 minutes of fame – and letting me sing alongside you… Very nice of you to send the CD – much appreciated…."

This is a review from a recent Malibu Beach Wedding.... I played "All-Beatles" for them..... A little instrumental medley of "Dear Prudence, Blackbird, And I Love Her, Two Of Us" as guests were being seated... then I played & sang "Here Comes The Sun" as she walked down the aisle... After the ceremony, I had a zillion great Beatles love songs to choose from... Great Idea, beautiful Wedding !

     "Chris was a real pleasure to work with. Very thorough with communication prior to the event. With so much on our plate preparing a wedding it was great to not have to be the one initiating contact to make sure everything was in check. He often sent emails to see if we had any concerns or questions and reassured us that we need not stress. As for the event. He was on time, very professional and a talented musician. We received many comments from guests about how good his playing was and how much emotion he played with."

This review is from a recent San Diego Wedding, on a bluff overlooking the Beach, for about 100 guests.... They asked for Jason Mraz & Pearl Jam songs for their ceremony, mostly brand new songs. Beautiful musical choices by the Bride & Groom. Big fun...

     "What can I say, Chris Wooley was awesome. My wife and I had him play at our wedding, he played our favorite song at the ceremony and for about three hours after, during drinks and dinner. He arrived 2 hours earlier than planned to scope the venue and get himself settled, he provided us with a microphone for our ceremony and was helpful in every possible way. His range of music was sensational and he learned some songs that we requested before the event. We would recommend Chris to anyone requiring a talented and professional musician for their function, great job Chris - thanks again mate!"

I played an Anniversary party for about 300 people, all ages... They're Country Music fans, so I played "Poncho & Lefty", and lots of Tim McGraw, Lyle Lovett, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, etc.... Here's what the host said...

     "Super nice guy with an amazing voice! Everyone loved him!!!! -- Denise C, Tulare, CA

This review comes from the Hostess of a birthday party in the Hollywood Hills above the Sunset Strip, for about 120 guests... They asked to sing along during the party - which is totally fine, they're supposed to have fun.... A wonderfully eclectic mix of songs was requested, everything from Neil Young and James Taylor to U2 and Death Cab For Cutie.... Maroon 5 to Peter Gabriel.... quite a mix of tunes. They didn't want the party to end.... Great people, awesome event.

     "Christopher Wooley was such a pleasure to work with and has such great talent. We gave him a long list of songs that we wanted him to play and not only did he sing them so beautifully, he took the time to learn all the ones he wasn't familiar with on very short notice. All the guests were entranced by his beautiful voice and his great music and asked about him afterwards. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to hire a truly gifted, professional, and talented artist."
