Terry is a consummate musician; an absolute professional; and a pleasure to work with. His performance during my daughter's ceremony created a perfect moment on a perfect afternoon. I recommend him without reservation... David Barrett Emmy winning composer/songwriter
Terry's music brought my mother to tears as she walked down the aisle. He took a Top 40 song (A Thousand Years) that he wasn't familiar with and turned it into an amazing classical guitar piece that even I, as I was in the back getting ready to walk down the aisle, stopped and listened to. Terry was incredibly flexible, open to my ideas and a pleasure to work with. You name it, he can play it, and he also has a great, engaging singing voice. I would recommend his services to anyone.
Absolutely fantastic - looking for someone with a once in a lifetime performance? Terry Farmer is the musician to go to - people still talk about the performance he did at our ceremony. His rendition of "Here Comes the Sun" was absolutely beautiful. Do not miss out!!
We were married more than five years ago at First Congregational Church of Ann Arbor. Our church is a beautiful, historic spot and we filled the pews with family and friends. Our minister lead us through a meaningful service. Our reception was right down the street at University of Michigan’s art museum. But the one thing that our guest routinely comment on to this day was the music that Terry Farmer and his bandmates performed at our wedding ceremony. Terry worked carefully with me, a dedicated Grateful Dead fan and lifelong lover of all kinds of music, to set the right mood before, during and after the ceremony. His band’s rendition of “The Weight” caused throngs of guests to congregate at the front of the church at the end of the ceremony, amazed at the band’s talent. Guests asked later where we found Terry and were shocked to hear that Terry helps lead the music program at our church. Weddings can be chaotic ordeals with many moving pieces. But Terry’s thoughtfulness in helping us create the set list, his calm demeanor to get it all done and his unparalleled musical ability made our special day all the more special. We’d highly recommend Terry for any event, especially a wedding. Here was our set-list, if you’re interested.
