Chris graciously learned a traditional Celtic song for my wedding on the beach at Folly. My family and relatives from Ireland were very impressed. It definitely helped to make the day special for us. - Michelle B., Bride

Chris Crosby Music Trio is wonderful! The music was perfect for our wedding. They did a great job with our special request first dance song. I can tell that they work hard and love what they do! - Nicole C., Bride

Chris Crosby, simply put, is amazing. He truly made our wedding day special and we had so many compliments on his music and ability. And for a group of people that would not normally get up and dance, Chris' music made them all wish they had brought their dancing shoes - thank goodness they danced in their bare feet! We will definitely have Chris at our next party!! Michelle and Dan M., Bride & Groom

We used Chris for both the Ceremony and the Reception. He provided Acoustical Guitar for the ceremony and it was lovely. Afterwards, the music for the Reception was simply GREAT. He is a professional, as was his entire group. They had everyone up and on the dance floor the entire night. One of the guests performed a number with the group and it was a highlight. I promise you, this group is exceptional and you will not be disappointed!!! - Rebekah56
