“I recently hired Dylan Galvin to play music for my wedding ceremony and reception. I wanted to provide honest feedback for anyone looking to hire Dylan for their party, wedding, or other event requiring his diverse brand of music. Dylan is an awesome musician. He plays guitar with great sensitivity and his voice has a ton of character. Whether he’s playing original music or covers, his performances come off effortless and authentic. For my wedding ceremony, I sent him a specific arrangement to learn and he played it perfectly. As the groom, the most magical moment of the day was hearing a song that meant so much as a couple played and timed perfectly to my bride walking down the aisle. Four our reception, Dylan played a perfect mixture of music with chill vibes for the cocktail hour all the way to energetic music for the guests to dance to as the night went on. I heard nothing but fantastic things from my guests about the style, pacing, and song choices. Dylan was able to read the energy of each part of the event and respond perfectly with his musical choices. Since I’ve spoken about Dylan’s artistry and performance, I have to mention how the booking and planning processes went. Dylan was super fast to respond to our initial inquiry. He spoke to my wife and walked her through all of the options. His pricing was fair and direct. Before the wedding, we spoke on the phone about some logistical items and to my surprise, Dylan gave me an awesome, heartfelt pep talk! I can’t say enough how professional and personable Dylan is. Dylan also allowed us to plug in our own wireless microphone equipment to his amplification for the ceremony and reception so that we didn’t have to rent more equipment. He was very gracious in allowing us to do that. During the reception one of our wireless microphones died before I had to speak. Dylan came running out with his own microphone without skipping a beat - essentially saving the day! Even when he was taking a break, Dylan was still making sure everything was going smoothly for my wife and me. If you are looking to hire a professional musician with a big heart, Dylan is your guy. Not only will you enjoy the entertainment he provides, but you’ll feel safe and secure throughout the entire logistical process. Personally, I’ll be hiring Dylan again in the future. I can’t wait to see him perform again!”

“I contracted Dylan to provide entertainment for my 50th birthday party and from the first contact Dylan made the entire experience very easy. Once contracted we connected and reviewed a play list and all particulars of the event. Dylan made the it very easy and he was extremely gracious on my special needs and requests. The night of the event was a huge success. Dylan made my 50th a night to remember and everyone had a great time. I would highly recommend Dylan for any event needing live entertainment, he was a pleasure to work with and made the entire process easy and it was one less thing I had to worry about. Thanks Dylan!!!”

“Amazing musician. Took time to talk on the phone and make sure everything was the way we wanted it. Was willing to learn more if necessary. We ended up shortening the time we needed him for and he still drove all the way to Santa Barbara for it. Everyone raved about his talent. Thanks, Dylan! You made our day extra special!”

“Dylan Galvin is an excellent musician, punctual and responsive business person, and an overall joy to work with. Dylan added a perfect vibe to my wife’s birthday party. He played everything we asked, and his choices were spot on for our mixed crowd 40-50’s y/o parents and friends and 20 something family. Dylan, thank you for making my wife’s special day near perfect ( I know you don’t control the weather/rain). Lastly, Dylan’s positive attitude and flexibility helped when the weather brought rain to our outdoor party.”

“Dylan was a fabulous addition to my party! I booked him very early on, and he was so accommodating, responsive and professional. His music set the perfect mood for my husband’s 40th birthday party and he’s friendly and genuinely a nice person. Highly recommended!”

We can't wait to hire him again soon!”
