"Thank you so much for making yesterday so special! You did an amazing job and I will never forget hearing Here Comes The Sun and seeing Sam walk down the aisle to it.
We thank you for all your help and willingness to let us have the best ceremony possible!"

"Mark played at our September 16, 2017 wedding and I cannot write enough kind words to describe how great he was that day. All of our guests complimented his skills and his music choices were perfect for our day. He was so cooperative and helpful during our whole planning process and was always open to suggestions from us. Everything flowed so well on the wedding day and he made my experience walking down the aisle unforgettable as he played. So very talented. Thank you so much!"

"We can see why Mark is popular on this website in the Toronto area.
It was a wonderful surprise for my bride to have Mark's music. Truly and exceptional talent! I requested that I sing during our post wedding reception to give another surprise to her. He was so helpful, he even sent music to me online so I can practice. He was so encouraging throughout.
All our guests thought he was a super guitarist and even our deejay and reception staff thought he was great! That's saying something for an Asian event. Having Mark was a super find and a perfect compliment for our special evening."

"Mark played guitar for our small outdoor wedding and during the cocktail hour and dinner. He was an absolutely outstanding addition to our wedding and played a perfect set list of songs that added such a nice touch to our big day. Everyone thought he did a great job and we were really glad we went with him. Book this guy now!"

"You truly helped set the ambiance for what we had envisioned for each of the nights you joined us. We can’t thank you enough, nor rave about how great you played. We just wanted to extend a huge thanks for all you provided, and for being a part of such a memorable time in both of our lives! Thanks again.. It was a real pleasure hearing you play."

"It was truly our pleasure having you there and (we) loved listening to your music. I will definitely spread the word to family and friends about how amazing you were. And of course, we will always have you in mind for future parties we may have. Thank you Mark for being a part of our special day! You were amazing."

"I hired Mark Anderson for a corporate function last year and received many compliments about his jazz guitar playing and how much it added to our event. Mark also played at our wedding last summer, both during the ceremony and afterwards - and his smooth guitar stylings created the perfect mood for our special day. Many of our guests commented on how fitting the classical guitar playing was for our intimate outdoor ceremony and we couldn't agree more. Mark, you are an extremely talented musician and a real pleasure to work with. We continue to recommend you at every opportunity to anyone who is looking for a guitar player, whether for their wedding or any other important event. Thank you again!"
- Eva D.
"I asked Mark if he would play his guitar for my daughter’s wedding. He graciously excepted and serenaded our guests with his beautiful playing throughout the ceremony. Mark added a very special touch to Shona's wedding day that we will always remember and appreciate."
- Rhea A.
"I had a need to have dinner and live music for my wife on Valentine's Day--except we just had a 6-day old newborn and was restricted to the house! Mark was unbelievably understanding of our situation and catered to our requests in scheduling, musical content, and went above and beyond in making it a personal, unique and comfortable experience (even with a rowdy toddler and needy newborn). As we dined on our take out, Mark's notes eased us into the groove with classy tunes and even my toddler was under his spell, giving us a few moments of peace. After the meal we even enjoyed sharing some aspects of music with each other, and we would definitely love to work with Mark Anderson again in the future!"
