“We heard Vernon playing at one of his gigs and hired him to play at our wedding reception. His music was perfect for our event and was enjoyed by everyone. We particularly liked that his songs included a wide variety of genres including current music, which is why we booked him as compared to a classical guitarist.”

“I was managing 12 artists and I must say that the music played by Vernon of Blu Gruv was just outstanding. Some of my artists were a little too loud but Vernon’s music was exceptional and always the right tune for the mood. His instrumental sound was very soothing or uplifting depending on the required mood. I highly recommend Vernon for any occasion.”
