“Dino truly made the wedding a fantastic experience. For our wedding he sang and played acoustic guitar during the cocktail hour giving a great, casual environment and played great songs during the actual reception. He had perfect timing on the right songs to play! An interesting story is that my 8 year old nephew had been begging all night to play “Sexy and I Know It” because he had made up a dance to show everyone, but Dino (luckily) kept postponing. Turns out my nephew actually caught the garter, and since all eyes were already on him Dino played the song right then. The timing was absolutely impeccable, and was the mark of a true professional.”
