We engaged Paul and his partner to play at our wedding during the ceremony and cocktail reception at Regale Winery. Their performance was wonderful, and everyone loved it! Also, he is a true professional. He responded promptly to our initial inquiry, spent time explaining what he does/can and answering our questions over the phone, followed up regularly to stay in touch, visited the venue a few days before to do the sound check, arrived on time on the day of the wedding, played the guitar beautifully and enchanted at our guests, some of whom sat close to Paul and his partner and told us later how wonderful their experience was. The only regret is that we were so busy on the wedding day we didn't get to thank him in person. So, here it goes. "Thank you so much for making our special day extra special!"

We recently had an event at a winery and hired Paul to play for 2 hours. He was phenomenal! I'd hire him again in a heartbeat.
I could not be more pleased that I found Paul for my wedding in Fairfax, CA. My only regret is that I did not have longer to meet/speak with him or hear his music! Paul was such a pleasure to work with, he was flexible and learned 2 songs for our wedding processional ("Heartbeats" by Jose Gonzales and "Here Comes the Sun"), and his communication skills were fantastic. Thank you Paul for impressing our guests on our special day!
Paul was amazing! We hired him to play for our wedding ceremony and he was flat out great. Not only did he sound amazing, he learned a number of new songs at my wife's request and they were all played flawlessly. I can't recommend Paul enough!

We had previously heard Paul in concert sponored by The South Bay Guitar Society. We were so impressed that we had him play at our home for a 70th birthday party. His style is smooth and perfect for such an occasion. We had lots of favorable comments from our guests and would not hesitate having him play again
Paul played guitar for our wedding ceremony and he was perfect! He took the time to meet with us several times before the event to find out what we wanted him to play, and he did exactly what we had asked. The day of the event he was there early and ready to go. He was dressed for the occasion and carried himself in a very professional and friendly manner. I HIGHLY recommend Paul Renslow if you are planning a wedding. We got tons of compliments on our choice of ceremony music.
Paul has played many times at our business mixers and I couldn't be more pleased with his musical talents and professionalism. His flamenco-fusion original compositions are beautiful and stirring; our guests have commented that they really look forward to hearing him play. Don't miss an opportunity to see him in person!

Paul is fantastic. He played at our wedding at Clos La Chance. He worked with us beforehand to get a feel for the type of music we wanted and put together a perfect assembly of sound. He is very professional and strives to do a great job for you. We received many compliments about Paul and his beautiful music and look forward to listening to him again and the various venues that he plays at.
